SOURCE: Display is locked and is asking for a four digit password?

disconnect from power for 30 seconds and you will need to disable the park brake shut off buy grounding the brake wire for 2 seconds then off .. you will have to do this everytime you want to drive with this system .. i have seen people put a toggle switch inline with the brake wire and click it on and off to make the stereo work ... i hope that helps .. and remember in most citys its illegal to drive with a monitor in the front of the automobile

SOURCE: Clarion VX400 does not switch

Check in the menu to ensure that no settings have been changed related to the camera and rear input.

If everything looks good there, then you need to have the installation checked to make sure no wiring has come loose or been cut.

My Clarion VX400 will not play certain DVDs due to region error. Is there anyway to bypass this idiotic feature or am I just going to have to resign myself to the mercy of this idiotic feature???

Region feature is how studios control distribution of their products. Very few home units have the ability to be region free and to my knowledge no mobile unit can be modified as this is a software issue.

Need code for a clarion VX400

Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. One among it has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.
Search the site by type in the brand name of your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the Home page display" to see the set-up codes to your device, with different brand remote controls.
Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.

Clarion NZ500 nothing on screen

Clarion ebrake safety bypass without using toggle switch

Clarion has a brake safety wire that has to switch from open to a ground every time you turn on the unit so therefore you cannot just ground the brake wire it has to switch to ground every time you turn on the radio

Sounds as though it could be a defective device, or possibly you should rewire your setup and ensure all the wires are properly connected and are all there. Let me know the outcome.

I changed the battery on my truck and the stereo went into enter password and dont know what it is and now it is locked

Assuming you have tried standard default codes 0000, 1111, 1234...
Clarion models keep the security code in non-magnetic memory inside the unit.
The only way to reset is to return it to clarion to have it cracked and reset using their proprietay software, and/or replace the flash memory chip.

Clarion authorized service centers cannot even do it (like Kenwood can)

If it says CODE, you can attempt to enter a code. If it says LOCK - after 7 attempts, you must wait 15 minutes.

Hope this helps

Check in the menu to ensure that no settings have been changed related to the camera and rear input.

If everything looks good there, then you need to have the installation checked to make sure no wiring has come loose or been cut.
