SOURCE: DVD player playing while driving

It's not that difficult. Get a two position toggle switch and run the wire that normally goes to the brake, into one end of the toggle. Then run a wire from the other end of the toggle to a ground. Whenever the message comes up on the screen about viewing while driving, flip the toggle switch on then off and it will bypass the safety feature. That's how I did mine and two other buddies of mine.

SOURCE: bypass for video on a kenwood ddx-512 car dvd player

On the wiring harness there is a green parking sensor wire (PRK SW) that you have to hook up. All you have to do is ground that anywhere on the chassis of the car then youll be set.

SOURCE: Lost remote control. Cann I play dvd without it?

I would just like to add that I have a Sony DVD player and a Sony TV. The Sony TV's remote is preprogrammed to control the DVD player, so I didn't have to mess with remote control codes or anything.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: My radio does not play

You didn't mention the brand of stereo but, the standard is that the unit's parking brake wire ( light green) must see a ground for the dvd playback to function. Most stereos you could just attach it to ground but the Pioneer units have a different configuration.

SOURCE: Video will not play.

there is a wire (pink i believe) that is labeled emergency brake. If connected to the e-brake it sends a ground when the e-brake is engaged that enables video. This is to ensure that you are not driving (are in park) while watching video. To work around this, simply take the pink wire and ground it out. You can do this by attaching it to the chasis or by splicing it in to the ground wire (I believe it was black, but double check before doing any splicing).

good luck with your player!

I've got VW Passat b6 2006. Rosen-VW0710-H11 is installed in it. When I try to play DVD (no matter audio or video) system displays message: "Password Fail". What can be the reason of this...


I would recommend resetting the Rosen unit. This is done by entering the "Menu" and pressing "Settings". From this screen, you select "Keypad" in the top right corner of the screen and then enter "7-5-2-3" and press "Enter". This should erase any code for Parental Control (levels 0 - 8). Also, the Rosen product states to only use "Store bought media" for CD's and DVD's meaning that it won't play all 'burned' discs. Hope this helps.- Elliot

I have an LG BD650 player that it's not able to play divx videos because "video format not supported." The specs of the player indicate otherwise.


I had the same problem with certain .avi files. I did a lot of research and found a program called "FourCC Changer". You can google it and download it for free. Open the file that doesn't work and change the "fourcc" to "xvid". Once I did that, the .avi files played without a problem. I hope this works for you. Good luck!

I put in dvd and it just plays the audio. A box keeps coming up saying " Attention! Viewing of front seat video source while driving is strictly prohibited." How do I see the video?


Its either only going to play video when your vehicle is in park, or whoever installed it did not do it correctly. If you have tried it in park and it still does not work then you need to either take it back to whoever installed it, or double check your wiring.

I have a **** Smith GE4203 DVD player, but none of the "MPEG4" files I plug in with a USB stick works. The machine recognises an AVI file, but doesn't play it. What settings should I use?...


Rip your DVD's using XviD format and not DivX and they should play just fine.

A good free software to try is "Winx Free DVD to XviD" but you'll have to have unprotected DVD's or rip them to the hard drive first using DVDFab to remove the protection or just have Slysoft AnyDVD running.
I set the video's audio to mp3 format (128Kbps 48000sample rate), and the video to 25fps(because in Australia we have PAL format), output profile to keep original size and aspect ratio, and video quality to about 1500kbps.
You won't get much benefit from a higher bit rate then that on a GE4203 screen and you could probably even go lower if you have speed or sync issues with the data rate. Even 1200 looks good.

I brought Home Theater PHILIPS HTS3565 but when I tried to play my file "AVI" it says codec is not supported but this file can be played in all of my device except PHILIPS. I have already...


Greetings - Your home theater setup will not play xvid or mpeg 4 files. The formats supported are MPG 1 and 2, Divx, and WMV .

If you'd like to view any .AVI or .MP4 files you would have to use a computer and re-encode them to a compatible format.

You will find a list of the software and links to download (much of it free) tools HERE that you can use to convert video to a compatible format (MPG2 is always a good safe format that plays on anything).

Good Luck,
