Question about Audiovox VM9512 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

2 len's on pick up

Please ignore the product number this is listed for, it would not let me post a question with the proper model number, kept asking for a valid product.

Thanks for that link with the picture of the pick up with 2 len's on it, I have been fixing DVD players since they have been on the market and this is a first for me. What brand is this from? It is probably from a brand I have not serviced before. I work at a authorized service center for Pioneer, Kenwood, Panasonic, Samsung, Denon, Marantz, and many more brands and this is a first for me.

Once again, thanks for setting me straight. I hope you didn't think I was trying to disrespect you, but I really had not ever seen a pick up with 2 len's in it before and I have been fixing these type of products for 18 years now.

Look at that thread again, the asker is now wanting more help and is wondering why he is not getting any help. He did give somebody a "FixYa!" rating, so I can not think of any reason to keep helping him. I wish FixYa! would do a better job of telling people how to handle the responses they get from experts better. This guy probably didn't realize that once he give a FixYa! rating to anybody that it is considered a solved problem. This guy has an electrical problem that is not going to be fixed with any help he can get here. It is probably a bad pick up, or could be in the DSP circuit, but it ain't an easy fix.

Hello Dave,
I did not think you were disrespecting me in any way and I knew that maybe you did not come across one like that.
The DVD player is an Electrohome model # EH8181A. Kind of old.
The premium system needs to change, so the customer can see all the replies.
Is all good here Dave.
Take care.

My radio is asking for a password and i dont remember it how do i bypass this?

Try searching on eBay for the radio make and model and "unlock code"

They will ask you for the radio's serial number and they'll email you the code. Usually costs between 5 to 10 quid. If you do it through eBay you'll get their buyer protection on the chance that the code doesn't work and the seller won't refund.

There are others that will do the same outside of eBay too.

Looking for a manual for pbmspg50

The only listing I can find on that model number is for a boombox, not a car video player. But, since many of these questions are mis-categorized, I'll post a link to the boombox manual in the hopes it is what you want.

Remote control

If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service center, or authorized dealer to your device brand.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its user manual. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. If you see the site by "MOSAIC" view, will make surf easier.

Boss Audio System Model #BV8966B - will not play DVD or CD's anymore & keeps saying "No Disc"

Some DVD players cant read some DVD s and
then it shows either "loading" or " no disc"..

it generally happens when you want to play "A copied DVD/CD " taken from somewhere else..
Some DVD players are fine at the beginning but after some time later,it begins to have some problems as you have..This is mainly due to LASER eye problems..
Just in case,quick remedy ,
pls Clean your DVD player's LASER lens .. A clean DVD player Lens ensures that your DVD disc would be read properly. Unfortunately, your DVD player's Lens accumulate as much dust and lint as the other parts of the DVD player. There are many available DVD lens cleaner kits that you can purchase and use to clean your DVD player.
YOUR DVD disc itself should be clean and finger prints free as well....
Here are three suggested DVD Lens Cleaner that should do the job of cleaning your DVD Player's lens.
Memorex Laser Lens Cleaner for DVD - This cleaner contains six soft brushes that gently remove dust, dirt and other airborne contaminants from your DVD player's lens. (Price: $6.09)
Maxell DVD-LC DVD Lens Cleaner - This DVD Lens cleaner features the "Thunderon Brush System" and include tests for audio performance including Dolby 5.1 surround sound. It also features an interactive on-screen instructions in 8 languages including system set-up. (Price: $10.81)
Allsop 23321 Carbon-Edge DVD and CD-Drive Cleaner - This DVD Lens Cleaner features an 8 brush carbon-system with carbon edge that removes static build-up from your DVD Players. It prevents skipping and also improves the sound and picture output of your DVD Player. ($13.11)

if this remedy does not help and if your set has still under warranty ,consult to service they may replace the LASER Reader EYE...most of the time Laser Eye malfunctions and does this..
if it is not under warranty ,never ,never have someone repaired it..go buy a new one,It will be cheaper.. ...

Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me

I dont hAVE THE wire hardness for my deck and wondering if am able to get just that part

The ones i see listed are not an exact model number match, however, in my experience have found that most harnesses will fit models from the same make... for example, when you swap a Sony deck you can replace it with another Sony deck with a different model number just by unplugging the harness from the deck itself and plugging it into the new deck.

My radio is installed but the sound only works when I step on the break pedal. What did I do wrong???

It shows up in the post on my PC.... how about this?

But it sounds as if we are on the same page - so far - anyways.
Next is to verify the subject of this post is - in fact - your radio.
You have listed the Jensen VM9312.
Is this correct??
