Hi! Are the wirings properly placed? Have it double checked for you may be missing something. If you happen to have a manual it will be helpful. Good luck!

Researching this problem, I found that other people have it too. There is one site that says they have an over-ride solution, but you have to pay $3 to view it. Here is another site, not sure if you have to pay or not, but you might take a look at it. http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/93900301-innovatek-vr-187-dvd-lockout-bypasspark-brake-hackwatch
The other site that wants a $3 charge to view the answer is here:
http://www.justanswer.com/questions/3a357-i-have-a-jensen-vr187-and-the-screen-will-not-deploy-last
I would contact Jensen directly to see if they're aware of this problem, and will offer a free solution. It sounds like a fairly common issue, and their service department should be aware of it, and it's "fix". Try to get a number from the instruction manual- I couldn't find a "true" Jensen support site available on the net. Sorry I don't have more info, but good luck.

    Thank you for your speedy reply, I,m a little leary about giving $3 to some body to tell me to replace a fiuse. the manual does not cover my probem and there is no custoner service # for jensen in it.

    I have every confidence in you thus far, lets give it another shot.

    thank you,

Jensen VR187 radio/backup camera observation monitor won't work


In the manual look on page 10 step 10. You have to use a ball point pen and straightened paper clip (better) to reset the unit. There is a small hole at the lower left of the Volume knob. That's where you insert the paper clip.

Car CD player plays but has no sound


Does your car have a premium sound system? Assuming that your cd deck is fine, try connecting your remote turn on wire from the sony to the corresponding wire on the car(if you bought a wiring harness, just match colors). Also some chryslers used a ground to turn on the amps.. a black wire with a female connector as well as a heavy ground ribbon cable... connect those 2 AND the ground to your stereo to enable the amplifiers.

Eclipse CD2000 has no sound from a cd or sirius... radio works


If you have an amplifier hooked up make sure that the correct blue wire on the harness is connected. One of the wires is the remote amp turn-on, the other is for a power antenna. That would be why your radio plays through your speakers, the power antenna wire' when the source is set to radio, sends a 12 volt signal. That would turn on your amp if thats the way that its hooked up.

My amp only powers the subwoofer when the radio is on but wont when the cd player is on


The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.

Power Amp not working When A CD is playing


Hi Cassiel,

You have it wired wrong. The Power Antenna wire is for antenna only. When you go to something other than Radio, the antanna wire signal to turn retract the antennaor turn off your amp. you need to use the Blue wire coming out of your CD player. The intended function of the Blue is remote turn on when every the radio is turned on. This will keep you amp on as long as your Radio is turned on. Change the wires behind the radio from the Power antenna to Blue Remote wire.

No audio from cd player


What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go. The same goes if your have an aftermarket amp driving your speakers.

Works fine through 4 chnl. amp on radio until you switch to cd then rear speakers turn off


You have the amp hooked to the "Antenna turn on" which is the blue wire.... you need to hook it to the "REM" output whis is Blue with a white stripe.
