    I have the exact same radio, and the exact same problem as the original poster. I grounded the green wire, tried the green wire on a switch to ground...and i get to the screen that says press ok to confirm, so i press ok, then it acts like its playing, but only shows a black screen...

    i used to own this same radio about a year before and it worked fine on a switched ground, but i can not figure it out now....any real solutions besides everyones same answer to "ground the green wire".....which doesn't work..

I just used scotch lock on the radio ground wire and wired a toggle switch under my ash tray and when i want to watch a movie just flip the switch on and off to fool the system. Just be safe and don't watch a dam movie and drive, my kids appreciate safe drivers :)

I put in dvd and it just plays the audio. A box keeps coming up saying " Attention! Viewing of front seat video source while driving is strictly prohibited." How do I see the video?

Its either only going to play video when your vehicle is in park, or whoever installed it did not do it correctly. If you have tried it in park and it still does not work then you need to either take it back to whoever installed it, or double check your wiring.

Screen wont move

There is a guy on ebay who does that repair service on the Pioneer AVH models. I thinks its $100 and change for the service plus shipping costs. Not a bad deal, beats going Pioneer! His service is also same day.
