Question about Audiovox VM9512 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

I cant see video from ipod

Hi, i have a problem watching video from ipod on my Jensen device. during playback from ipod when i hit "video" button to play video from ipod, the unit returns control to ipod and it seems that it starts to wait for video signal from ipod, but in other hand if TV out is set to on in the ipod then the ipod shows the message "TV out is enabled. connect your video devise to start" and doesn't start to play the video. So there is a such kind of "dead lock", VM9512 is waiting for video signal and the source of video signal (means ipod) is waiting for video device connection. Could you please help me to avoid this problem? Is there any secret code on ipod or VM9512 to say "don't wait for video signal or dont wait for video device connection". Thanks.

    Hi All

    I've got an answer from Jensen technical support. And the answers
    is: You cant watch a video from new 5th generation iPod (which I

    The problem is in Apple’s policy. They have encoded the new 5th
    generation iPod to do not send the video signal to dock connector made by some
    other but Apple. Apple has some chip integrated into their iPod video cable so
    the iPod starts to send the video signal, otherwise it says “Please connect
    video device”.

    The only way to get the video from iPod to VM9512 is to use Apple’s
    iPod video cable and connect it to some AUX jack on VM9512 (I have connected it
    to AUX1 on VM9512).

    Hi Sepa,

    Can you tell me what type of connector you are using. Is it:

    a 3.5mm jack to 3xPhono
    or is it the usb connector at the base of the ipod to 3xphono.

    Also, do you know if it is Component or Composite?

    Many thanks

When I try to play a movie, I only see the warning sign on the screen. I can hear the movie playing, but the warning will not go away. This is even when the vehicle is in park. Any ideas what may be wrong?

Bypass Code
1. Go into Am/Fm mode
2. Hit "setup" on the remote control
3. Enter 543210 on the remote, listening for the beep for each number entered
4. A new menu will appear. Touch the button that has the hammer/screwdriver on it in the upper left-hand part of the screen
5. Select Brake bypass to "ON" and hit the "X" near the bottom of the screen

YES you can!! Touch the "video" button on Jensen, theyou MUST use your iPod to findthe video you want to play on the screen and SET YOUR iPOD SETTING TO "TV OUT"!! I have the same decand iPod and it's GREAT!! Just remember that on videos, set the iPod to TV OUT, and control the video from the iPod!!
