Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I own a XO Vision gx1360d roof mounted DVD player in our van. We installed it new to replace a non-functioning player. After 7 months of light use, it now just "reads" the disc without ever starting to play. I have checked settings and tried different discs. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    It plays audio CDs, I checked. I used a DVD player cleaner disk and cleaned the lens. Tried another dvd and the same thing happened. The machine says read while in dvd mode and the disk spinning; and after a while then stops doing anything.

    Do you have a recommended website to find the laser lens? I am 2.5 hours away from a major metro area to shop for one.

Hello,

I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Good luck.

    The laser is weak such that a lens cleaner cannot revive it. I think it's high tine you have a lens replacement.......

hi there
it shouldn't be to hard to install this but it does require cutting a hole in your interior part of roof........a install like this could take anywhere from 30 mins - 1hr for a installer to put it in. to do it yourself it could take 1-3hrs to complete (note for your first time doing this take your time and follow the install manual that will be provided)

XO Vision GX-1581 No Signal


It looks like you've narrowed it down to a settings issue. If it is saying "No Signal" while on AV2, then you need to switch to AV1 where your video signal is. A remote might be available online from XO Vision (www.xovision.com) directly or on E-bay. You might also be able to find a local dealer of XO Vision from their website. One quick fix you can try....since the monitor has 2 video inputs and is stuck on AV2, you can simply get video by unplugging the video input on AV1 and plugging it into AV2. Hope this was helpful.
