There is a wire that you are supposed to hook up to your emergency brake or another source to let it know your are parked. That same wire usually relies on a ground. I just grounded mine to a good ground under the dash and it worked great. Hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: How do I disable the parking brake safety feature

never done it on that particular model but, have you tried hooking the parking brake wire (coming out of the unit) to ground and running a switch to it? The way it usually will work, when the screen appear telling you to put in in park just flip the switch on for a few second the off for a few seconds then back on again. Sometime just grounding it works.

The face or screen will not open up when I touch the disc or sd card symbols on screen. Also the symbols to adjust the screen are not lit up anymore.

You may not have this wired correctly, these screens require you to wire the unit to the parking brake so that you may not drive while watching videos either from a DVD or SD card. Therefore you must either bi-pass the safety feature or wire it correctly, although in some states having the video feature enabled while drive can be illegal. Hope this helps, YouTube has some instructed videos on how to bi-pass the safety feature.

Dvd not play

A lot of the video screen units are on a lock down mode unless the parking brake is set on your car as a safety feature to make sure you are not watching while driving, there are ways to bi-pass this safety feature but do know it is illegal in some states. Trying YouTube for a way to bi-pass your safety feature sometimes its a lot easier than you would think.

I need help my new BOSS BV9560B display Warinig please stop watch video player when I'm play DVD

It's because the pink wire (brake system) is not connected to anything. It is a safety feature to make sure that you are not watching the DVD while driving. I just installed my BV9990 today and had the same issue (before taking care of that pink wire).

The dvd won't play with the car on

This is done as a safety feature. They are not allowed to set it up any other way because the driver isn't suppose to be able to watch dvd's and drive.
Thank you,

Screen says " cannot prform this function while driving"

Since your DVD player is newer, it has a safety feature that keeps it off when driving. Its better that way trust me. I have one and I watch DVD's while driving in Los Angeles traffic. Not a good thing. it is possible that you might have an option on the DVD menu to turn this safety feature off.

Yes, most of them have a factory bypass that you can enable, though this is illegal because you can not legally have a movie in front of you while you are driving. There are people that will insert the code for you for about $50, or you can find the code and do it yourself. I was able to disable it myself on my Jensen.
