If you can, try checking your wire connections. If they check out fine, try checking your fuses and wiring for power.

I have a ken wood aftermarket headunit. I was always able to plug in my usb and play music through us now I hooked up my subs and when I pulled the headunit out I didn't disconnect any wires or anything...

You didn't give much detail on model of unit, etc. However I remember vaguely from my wife's KW DVD/Nav unit, that the USB port can serve one (and only one) of 2 purposes. One is as an "uplink" to firmware (I think, or maybe it was some sort of remote control, been too many years), the other is what you want, as an "accessory" USB port. It sounds like that setting might have gotten changed while doing your setup. Download the manual for your specific model number from Kenwood and it should have details there.

Model RTD325W My DVD player has been locking up during a movie and even when I am listening to just the radio (tuner mode) I am forced to unplug to reset since it will not allow me to power off with...

Fastest way to check this is to disconnect all speaker wires from the unit leaving the video hooked up and play a disc. If it keeps playing fine, you have a speaker or wire problem. If it still reacts the same, it's an internal problem and would need to be serviced. If the unit continues to play, post a reply and I will describe in detail how to troubleshoot the system. Hope this helps

you need to firstly trace the speaker wires to the unit to make sure there connected first. if they are then its a job for a car audio expert ( if there is such a thing) if the unit is connected to correctly to the speakers then there is an internal fault ..

Dvd plays but it turn blue whit no pic

Yes, your parking brake safety wire has been run the correct way, so it will only play when you are in park. If that is the case, you must disconnect the pink parking brake wire from the parking brake ground, and connect it to the radio units main ground wire. This will tell it that it is always in park. Caution, they put the wire there for a reason, very distracting to have a movie playing in the front seat.

Video won't play

I am not sure about that brand but you are relly supposed to connect the wire coming out of the back of the screen that says "parking brake wire" to the cars parking brake wire or it can by green, black , or several other colors depending on the manufactor. If you do not do that and you just connect that wire to the ground wire "the black one" and it does not work the the screen most likely needs to have some sort of reaction to happen. try turning the unit on then grounding the black wire (the one coming from the unit that should be connected to the vehicles parking break wire) . You may have to install a switch if this works. If you still have the manual look and see if it tells you if the is a sequence like turn on the unti then apply the parking brake release it then reapply and this will tell you how to wire up the switch.

I have sound but just a black screen

Hello lolly, What i would suggest is disconnecting the wires and examining them. Examine the prongs and if any are shorter or missing then that would be your problem. If therething looks fine then it would be your xbox which will need to be sent back.
Sorry to inform you, but i hope this helps.

No sound from anything but FM

Disconnect whatever's connected to the blue wire behind the unit, and re-connect it to the blue/white wire instead.
