Your parking break must be on in order to view video on the screen. its a common safety on most in car dvd screens intended to be installed in-dash

Kenwood KVT-512 iphone compatibility


Just ignore the airplane mode prompt and if your wiring is correct everything should work.
With my BMW I had to connect both the solid blue (pwr ant) wire and the blue with white stripe (p conn) to the solid blue wire from the factory harness.

It isn't obvious that either of these are needed as the KVT-512 has it's own power supply but the way most factory power amps are installed the power from the KVT-512 is not used and the car manufacturers power amp needs to be turned on.

If you are listening to the radio the pwr ant wire will turn on the power amp, this didn't seem obvious because the BMW doesn't have a power antenna. And when you are using the DVD player or the iPod connection you need the P Conn wire to turn on the car power amp as the ant pwr is disabled because you are no longer using the radio and Kenwood assumes you will not need the antenna so no power to this lead.

Solder all three wires together and you should have sound all the time.

I think this may be it, here: http://www.partstore.com/Part/Kenwood/Kenwood/KVT717DVD/Kenwood/Kenwood/J84015005/New.aspx If not, do a search for your model number on the same site. They have over 100 replacement parts for that model.
