My screen. On my valor is not working at all can not see anything , but radio works fine. What is wrong please help

  • If you haven't found the answer (or your like me and you found a post because you were looking for the same answer)...
  • Is the PINK wire connected to GROUND? (Legally in most states it should be connected to something that is only at GROUND when the vehicle is in PARK). When this wire is not at GROUND potential the video screen does not come on and stays black in any of the VIDEO modes.
  • When the source is RADIO the screen will function no matter what pink has going on.

  • The PINK wire is a NEGATIVE ENABLE but I don't know if it knows it.
  • When source is DVD with a DVD loaded you should hear the audio even thought the screen is black, of course if its sitting on a DVD menu with no sound you won't really know.
  • This is a PINK wire coming from the head units modular plug. not the bundle of wires that comes through the grommet but the plug that is removable. Not to imply that I have ever seen another pink wire. Well once I drank a lot of tequila ... not a pink wire. never mind.
  • While the wire was labeled on the OEM harness I have seen, the OEM wiring diagrams I have seen only have the description "PARKING" but no color code.
  • Feel free to repost or contact if the pink wire is grounded and the video screen is still acting the fool.

My jenesen uv8020 wont power up i hit the rest buton and the blue buton lights turn on but turn right back off i replaced my front broken screen it powered up it worked for a 7 months when i would tu

I need more info. Did you check the ground wire to make sure you have a good ground? Some installers try to rely on the antenna for a ground when hooking it up due to laziness and it will eventually burn the stereo out from low voltage, or, you could have amps that are killing the battery enough to drop the voltage down and it's killing the stereo. I have also seen ground loops kill stereos, but, I need a bit clearer info as to exactly whats happening to answer the question.

What color wire do i hook the pink wire to

Pink wire is generally the parking brake safety. If you dont want the dvd player to play video while in drive wire it to the ground on your parking brake sensor wire. If you do want it to play video while your driving, wire it directly back to the ground wire on your stereo.

Jensen double din dvd monitor uv8020

Here's what you need to know: DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On the Jensen, 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 mine, 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 the manner of the e-brake cycle I mentioned earlier.

Brake bypass code

I just got this same unit on thursday of last week and put it in myself. All you have to do is ground the pink wire out and it will work without having to put a bypass code in. Hope this works for you as well.
