I just solved this problem on my Ford Edge 2010. Start the dvd. Hit the FM button on the remote. It will pop up an FM radio frequency in the top left corner of the screen. For example, ours is 88.7. Tune the car radio to that frequency and the sound should come through the speakers. Hope it works for you.

Maybe the thing is old

DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On mine, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.

And you check the dvd fuse or the remote wire who comes from the stereo

Since the screen was loose, the wiring to the screen might have been detached due to the shakes from the car. Give it a check.

"Possible" part @ tigerparts.com or search X-2024-673-1. I think I am going to try it, because I don't want to replace the whole unit.

Found out what my problem was - 2 DVDs were in the unit - need to take unit out of car (very easy - 5 mounting screws, 2 plug in power connections), remove some brackets from within the unit to get to the DVD itself and then just pull the DVD out - took me less than 1 hour - and I am not tech savvy or mechanically inclined by any means

Hi, well I see this type of thing in my Lab alla time unfortunately it sounds if ya DVD has gone faulty... an all too common occurrence these days.. the Laer seem to be very "Frail" You could try a cleaning Disk, but they seldom work.. but sometimes? all ya can do is replace it with another good DVD.. OR if thats not possible use any AV input and connect a remote DVD player that way.. a bit of a hassle, but it's a work around anyway.

Usually the remote connection(s) would be left open or disconnected when there is no remote, leaving only the on-set manual controls.
