Question about Phase Linear UDV9010 Car DVD Player

Playing a DVD on Phase Linear UV7

I have the parking break wire connected properly, however you must put the parking break on and off in a sequence that I do not know. It is not discribed in the manual. I did it once by randomly putting the break on and off, but I forgot what I did.

    No there is a sequence. I found what it is and posted it here. The player even asks for a sequence. The older players did not have a sequence, however, people would bypass that by grounding the wire. Now to bypass it you would have to put a switch in to toggle the sequence.

    I believe i have the same problem except the solution posted doesnt seem to work, the symptoms of my problem is that as soon as i pop a dvd into the player the blue screen comes up and says i have to engage the break sequence to access the movie and ive tried the sequence from my manual and from the solution posted but have had no luck.

You have to insert a DVD then put the parking brake on for 1~2 seconds, then put the brake off for 1~2 seconds, then back on. If you take longer than 2 seconds or less than 1 second then you have to wait 10 seconds to try again.

It must start out in the off position and then when you want to watch the video put it on. There should not be any more to it than that. You may have an intermittant connection on the parking brake wire that makes you think there is some type of sequence because the first time you set the parking brake it did not work. I would check and make sure the parking brake is always engaging the wire to ground when the parking brake is pressed.

    Thanks for that info Korby, I have been repairing car and home audio for nearly 18 years, but not Phase Linear. I assumed it would be the same as the Pioneers, Kenwoods, JVC, and Panasonics that I repair at an authorized service center for all of those.

    It goes to show, you can always keep learning and nobody is above making a mistake. I really appreciate that you did not give me a bad rating for giving you the wrong advise. Your a stand up guy, thanks.

    If you ever need some help or information on something I actually work on, I would be mor ethan happy to assit you.

    Have a great fourth,

Want dvd to play while driving its played before i hit reset button now it does'nt play

You need to hook up the pink wire to a power wire. I myself have a switch in my cig outlet (which ran blue lights i had inside my car) running it so if i ever got pulled over i just pull out the switch and they cant prove i was playing a movie.

press down 1 time(button below the play/enter)
press play/enter 1 time
(you should see the menu now)
brake override should say no
I was told to change macrovision to no
hit system setup twice to save and exit
hope it works like mine did
