Yes, I just got this unit and installed it today. The reason for this is this unit isn't capable of playing the ipods. You have to put the music on a flash drive to use the usb function. Which to me wasn't a big deal because I only use my ipod in my car anyway. The bv9999bi is the newer model of this unit and can play ipods. But i wasn't going to send this one back to get that one cause then I would have to pay for reinstallation when I could just put the songs on a flash drive. I love this unit btw.
Yes, you can bypass parking break feature by connecting the corresponding wire of BV8962 to ground, also you could add a 3 pin toggle switch to get a normal and bypass mode switch, this can be wired of this way, the common pin of toggle switch to your video unit, at the other pin, it could be connected the parking break wire (normal mode) and the remaining one to ground (bypass mode).
If this is happening to all the discs you insert then you are having a problem with the laser lens. If the lens is faulty then you wont have any success. Replace the unit or if you want to really invest in the repair then go ahead and do so but im personally not to crazy about boss car audio equipment, quality is poor and chances are that it will happen again. Good luck boss.... : )
12/29. I actually figured this one out myself after reading posts concerning parking brake over rides. It turns out that the Boss BV9055 will not powerup if the pink parking brake wire from the units wiring harness is not grounded. Once I grounded that pink parking brake wire the unit did power up.
