The Maytag SkyBox is not a commercial vending machine. It is designed for INDOOR use only. The possibility of electric shock is likely from a unit that has gotten wet. In addition, the electronics are not designed to withstand the outdoor elements.

I have a Ripspeed DVD-730B head unit for my car. its all installed but when trying to play a dvd it displays a message sayin: do not watch while driving and then only plays sound, no picture. how do i...

if the unit was installed with a handbrake lead properly it will only get picture with handbrake on,try taking that wire off and connect it to a permenant positive like the permanent live to the head unit,so the unit thinks the handbrake is on, or if it wasnt installed properly and that wire is somewhere else like a permenant negative then the unit thinks the handbrake is always off hence no picture while driving,hope this helps :-)

Restarts Unit/Clock Every time car turns off

Hi the problem is due to it been wired in wrong their should be two live wires coming from the unit one is permenant live this stores the time and any setings you change and the other live is main live that turns the unit on when ignition is on.
What you need to do is locate these live wires they will either be wired up to one live wire coming from the car this causing the problem you need to have one live wire going to live auxilary and the other should goto a permanent live wire.
The permanent live wire is the one that stores the time and setting etc it usually an orange wire and the permanent live wire is usually red.
What you can do is use search engine and look for wiring diagramme for your unit this will show you whats permanent live and what aux live hope this is some help.
If you are unsure let some one look at it for you its only five minute job thats all ok
