I just bought a VR3 dvd/cd player from wal-mart and I would love to be able to watch it without the parking brake on and while I drive. Is there any special code or instructions that would allow me to do this? Please help me.

this is fixable. All you need to do is go to any store like wal mart, futureshop, best buy and find a CD cleaner. It is a CD with a little cloth fibers on one part. this will clean the laser of your DVD recorder and make it work again.
Sometimes dust gets on the laser and makes it not work.
It sounds like you have a circuit overloading. But, is this one of the Durabrand models that have been recalled by Durabrand/Wal-Mart? They recalled most or all DVD players built since 2006 because they have a tendency to overheat and catch fire. Look into it by calling your local Wal-Mart.
Do you need a wiring harness for the back of the unit? All you have to do is google "wiring harness for vr3 cd400 and you will have allot of options to choose from. If you connected the red which is 12v +, yellow connects to 12v for radio memory, and black goes to ground. Brown is for external amp turn on. Check to make sure your connections are correct. Do you have an adapter harness that plugs into the factory radio harness? You can get one from Wal-Mart or best buy or online. So you don't have to cut/splice into the wiring harness coming from the stock radio.
Do you have a problem w/ people to open and close the drive readily? Like little kids or something? B/c It sounds like ur drive motor could have worn/burned out. If that's the case, take it back to Wal-mart(if they have the same one) and exchange it. Wal-mart is an investment. ha ha.. I hope this helps.
Yes, there is a way to watch a movie without the parking brake engaged. The parking brake safety mechanism is there for a reason, and I do not suggest that you disable this sytem so that you can watch movies while driving. With that said, the simplest way to bypass the parking brake system is to take the parking brake wire from the head unit, run a wire to a chassis ground point, and then put a toggle switch inline so that you can flip it on and off. This will simulate the engaging/disengaging of a parking brake.
Again, I do not condone or recommend watching movies while driving. There are enough distracted people driving on the roads.
it's supposed to go to the wire of the parking brake that is grounded with the parking brake on. This wire disables the dvd video so it can only be watched with the parking brake set. On mine, I just connected it to the black wire so it is able to play video all the time. Or you could run it directly to ground, same thing as connecting it to the black wire.
Hi, I had the same prob with mine. Pretty easy fixed. There is an earth wire connected to the park brake switch, you have to disconnect it. If you are not savvy with car stereo installation, I would advise you take it to strathfield or another car stereo installer - it is a quick and easy job and they shouldnt charge you more than 20 bucks for it.... if that. Beware though, playing movies in your field of view is VERY distracting and dangerous..... and illegal.
The brown wire labeled parking brake -12v should be connected to the parking brake switch. So that to watch a DVD the parking brake needs to be set. but can be bypassed by connecting to ground. if connected to the lights it could be your problem
