I take care of my car audio and my monitor was all white one day but the weird thing about it is that I can still do all the touch screen functions, I just have to look at it from a certain angle. The dvd player does not play my dvd's anymore as well but everything else works on the in-dash. Someone help me please, this is just weird to me.
Take a sharp object and press it into the little circle button and it should reset the screen. then you have to put all your settings back in. the button is the little one to the left of the tuner button. right under the letter v

Just stick with these formats and it should work fine...are you trying to view burned movies or something. From the looks of it, it should play any DVD or CD just fine. Try to steer clear of those formats you listed.
The monitor only headrest does not have audio handling circuitry in it. the wire harness for that side is the one with the red and black wire, and the two video inputs, not the harness with the red and black wire and the three RCA jacks. It will function on the wrong harness, but it is not the correct one.
The DVD headrest has two harnesses. One of them is for power and output, the other is for input only from another source. The harness with the red and black wire has the three RCA outputs... the video lead goes to the other headrest, and the audio can be fed to an aux input on a stereo or amplifier. The input harness is designed to be Video 2 input from either a gaming system (a Game Cube is a nice option), or another DVD or video source (hand held video device such as iPod or Smart Phone like a HTC Touch Pro 2).
To get sound out of the stereo, either run the audio output from the headrest to the aux input on your stereo, or cycle the FM transmit options using the FMTX button on the DVD player unit to a station you can tune to on your car's FM radio.
Hi. Sound like you have a loose 30 pins connector either at your monitor or hide away unit. Only the best service technician can handle that issue. Try to do it yourself or have some self taught tech to do it and I would bet you 10 to 1 that you will fry it. As a matter of fact the only one whose offer that service is Rick on Ebay. His store name is Same Day Audio Services. He is very reliable and all of his work is guaranteed. It will cost you about $100. If he can't fix it, he won't charge you anything. Good luck.
Mention Hogan from Utah and he might give you a discount.
Ok, so I called Crutchfield, where I had purchased the unit, and the guy there said this is a common thing. Believe it or not, it IS the wiring. The guy said the blue wire on the harness needs to be connected to the blue/white wire on the Kenwood unit. Which is weird, since it's usually color-coded. He said the blue wire is a 12-volt amp wire, which works with the tuner, but when you take it off tuner, it kills the 12 volts and so you get no sound.
I haven't fixed it yet to be sure it works, but I thought I'd post this anyway, in case someone else is waiting on this. I'll post again if it doesn't work. :0)
Depending on the vehicles wiring itself, Alpine uses the below color coding for its wiring: yellow – constant
+12v such as the positive battery terminal red – switched
12v such as the accessory terminal of the IGN switch black –
ground which could be the chassis/body ground of the vehicle or the negative
terminal of the battery blue/white
- remote trigger for add-ons such as a power amplifier blue – will
activate a power antenna (if present) white and
white/black - front left speaker + & - grey and
grey/black - front right speaker + & - green and
green/black - rear left speaker + & - purple and
purple/black - rear right speaker + & - orange/white
- reverse wire white/pink
- monitor control lead pink/black
- audio interrupt from mobile/cell phones yellow/blue
- parking brake yellow/black
- foot brake
To bypass, the yellow/blue must be triggered negative/grounded. Alternately, it may be easier to use an adapter such as a Peripheral PTR7 (http://peripheralelectronics.com/). In some regions, it is not allowed to operate this unit while vehicle is in motion.
Hope this be of help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
