Question about Jensen VM9510 Car DVD Player
Ok thanks for the tips so far...
ive got it installed it seems all wires are hooked up properly i even found the right wire for the power antenna. i have the pink wire on a bolt attached to the body but when i insert the dvd it tells me a "warning it is illegal to operate the vehicle while viewing a dvd". and the screen stays blue. the manual just shows the pink wire going to the parking break ground but i do not know which one that is. i would like the dvd feature to function even while moving not that i can watch it but my kids can enjoy it. should i, can i tap into the black wire for the battery ground.
the unit is a jensen uv8 manufactured in nov. of 2007. my ride is a 1996 trooper ls automatic. ive tried that code that says to 543210 thing and it does not respond but the remote does everything else so i no the battery is good.
anybody can give the lowdown. much appreciated
Hit setup then press 5-4-3-2-1-0. It will then go to a hidden menu turn parking brake override on.

The pink wire in most instances is the DVD's sensor that the vehicle is not in motion and is parked. It then allows the DVD player to display the movie not the warning message nor the blue screen.
Your description "...pink wire on a bolt attached to the body..." indicates that said wire is constantly grounded. The DVD then cannot sense that the vehicle was parked. What this tell us is that the pink wire must first have a +12VDC before it is grounded. This changeover from + to 0 is the trigger. What is required is to have a single pole double throw switch. One end terminal is wired to ACC B+12 while the other to ground with the center terminal to the pink wire. Moving the switch from position OFF to ON (+12 to GND) simulates the parking brakes condition and will enable DVD playback.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
