How can I watch the backup camera when the car is in drive

I have a KVT-719 DVD with a CCD-2000 rear view camera. The camera works in reverse gear, or in drive with the E brake on. I also have a navigation unit so I do not want to mess that up. I would like use the rear view camera in drive with the E brake off.

Here's what you do. Purchase a Y rca splitter it has 1 female end and 2 male. Place one into your rear view camera input and 1 into the video 1 or 2 which ever is not occupied. Then switch to that source and camera becomes a full time video while driving. I use this to haul my four wheeler so I can see them on trailer.

    Also ground the green wire from head unit to the chassis. That will override the e brake and allow viewing anytime

My Pioneer car DVD player shows Caution: Imiage on screen may appear reversed. What does this mean will not play movie DVD's. Can you help.


That message has everything to do with a back-up camera. Ensure you have not connected the reverse wire to a source if you aren't using a camera. Some cameras are reversed so that's why you are getting that message. As far as the DVD goes, the emergency brake wire (lt. green) needs to go to the e-brake wire on the vehicle. You cannot just ground the brake wire because most Pioneer video units have another method of preventing you from watching a movie while in motion. Maybe you have confused the reverse wire for the brake wire? Youtube has videos on how to do a video bypass...

Kenwood KVT-617DVD - Rear Camera Option Not Working


Hi,

Since "...everything else is working..." indicates that there is no blown fuse or chances are nor any hardware is at fault.

When the battery was disconnected, the Kenwood KVT-617DVD may have suffered a memory failure and would require a reset.

Have you tried doing a reset? It's a small recessed button near the bottom right side of the font panel underneath the protection panel (right of the Joystick Track/Station Key & above the Eject Disc Key). Pressing the reset button should restore the Kenwood KVT-617DVD to default factory settings. Of course this will also remove any special programming that you may have such as favorite stations, etc.

You also posted "...Parking brake requirement...bypassed..." this is only to allow the display to be always ON. This is the green wire that must be grounded
You need also to check that the "Reverse" wire/trigger is also bypassed that is to set the "...camera...full time...rear view mirror and back-up monitor for the truck camper..." This is the pink wire that must be attached to the ACC of the vehicle's Ignition Switch. Alternately, it may be connected to the red wire of the Kenwood KVT-617DVD.

If the reset does not correct the problem, you may need to run the setup menu again following the user's manual. Should you need a copy, it is available on line here. Pls verify that you set R-Cam Interruption to ON & R-Cam Mirror to Reverse. This is better explained with appropriate illustrations in page 69 of the User's Manual.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My pioneer double din screen says ''Caution, screen image may appear reversed''...how can i solve this problem?


Hi,

As you know, you can use this DVD AV Receiver with a rear view camera. And also it can be installed to switch automatically from the video to rear view image when the gear shift of the car is moved to Reverse position.

But it is important to use a camera which outputs mirror reversed images.
Otherwise the screen image may appear reversed. And this means that you will see the rear view reversed in the monitor. And that may cause accicent and injury.

To solve this problem, first check your rear camera whether it has the capability to output mirror reversed images.

If it is, then check the wire connections of the rear camera using the operation manual or ask a technician.

Also check the settings of camera polarity if it is set properly or not in the system menu when connecting the rear view camera.

You can download the operation manual (pdf file) by clicking here.

I hope this helps.

If you would like to vote for the answer, this will help the others to see the similar problems solved and also will be a satisfaction factor for me to continue helping you.

All the best.

What does the green/white wire connect to on my jensen vm9312hd? Says it is reverse +


Rear View Camera Input: The VM9313 features a composite video input and a green/white wire lead attached to the harness for connection of a rear view camera. If a rear-view video camera is connected, the unit is on, and the TFT monitor is retracted inside the unit, the TFT monitor automatically moves into the viewing position and Camera modes is selected upon shifting into Reverse gear. When shifting into Drive gear, the TFT monitor is retracted back inside the unit. If the monitor is already in a viewing position and in display mode, the monitor automatically switches to Camera mode upon shifting into Reverse. When the reverse driving stops, the monitor returns to its original input display mode. You can choose for the monitor to display a Mirror mode image or a Normal mode image from the rear-view camera.

Putting kenwood kvt 617 dvd in rear of surburan how can i bypass parking brake so movies can play while driving


On bypasses you can either hook the parking brake wire straight to ground, if that does not work you can install a toggle switch between the parking brake wire and ground so you can mimic the parking brake on off.

Hideaway brain unit on my kenwood KVT-617 doesn't work


My KVT-617 display unit was stolen out of my dash, but they neglected to snag the items under the rear seat: the "brain" hideaway unit, the HD radio receiver, the 10 disc CD changer, the navigation unit, and the powered subwoofer.
Everything was replaced via the insurance except the sub because the new system was not compatible with the old components. Make me an offer on the items you want!

Kenwood kvt-719 brake bypass code needed


I've never seen a code that allows it, but you can do it in the wiring harness. Most DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On mine, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.
