Replacing a stand alone dvd receiver with this unit-wiring help needed

Just purchased this unit to replace my audiobahn stand alone dvd unit under the passenger seat of my minivan. There is the power and ground wires already in place along with the yellow video and audio RCA wires from the old unit. Seems like a simple swap of units but the instructions refer to a switching wire being needed and a parking break wire. I wish to only use this unit for DVD playback...dont care of radeo or other playback. Do I have an install nightmare here or shall I take to Best Buy and pay for an install...please advise. if easy and only need to find a switching wire...where do I find that...in the dash of where my existing stock radio is??just splice and pull under the carpet to the other wires already in place?? Any help or advise is appreciated.

No, you do not need to connect the parking break wire for the unit to be powered. My radio worked when the parking break wire wasn't attached, but you cannot watch video's or use USB without attaching it to something... you can bypass the parking break to a switch if you like.

bro to me it sounds like your radioi is bad you got everything hooked up right to get sound from it maybe the ant. hooked up but you should still get sound thats why I say the amp in the unit is bad!

yellow or orange: all time 12v
black: ground
blue: amp turn on, or auto ant.

Can i buy a 3d blue ray samsung dvd player and plug my HT-TZ315 unit speakers to it?

No. A stand-alone 3d player will not have an amp in it to power the speakers. You would be better off purchasing a new 3d surround system.


In short, NO. Stereos are for playing not recording.

If your stereo has a DVD recorder and a video/audio input then you should be able to use it. I dont know of many stand alone "stereos" that do this. In general, stereos only deal with audio, but newer stereos and receivers can handle video as well, but usually are just PLAYERS not RECORDERS.

If not, then you will need to connect your VHS to a stand alone DVD recorder. You could also connect your VHS to a computer with the proper adapters (USB, firewire, etc) and software, and then record the VHS video to the computer. Afterwards you can then make a CD or DVD of the video.

A stand alone DVD recorder is much easier.

My home theater system plays cds but will not play dvds, what can I do to fix it, makes a scratching noise when i put dvds in it, but plays fine with a cd.

There is something wrong with the DVD drive assembly inside. If you're brave, take it apart and check on what is making the noise. Also, try using a q-tip to clean the laser head if it's accessible.

If that doesn't help, it's time for a new DVD player.

This is why I always recommend people buy a home theater system without a DVD player built in. The DVD player is the weakest link, and stand alone DVD players can be purchased for as little as $25 depending on if you want upconversion or not.

If you cannot get the DVD player working in your surround system, just replace it with a stand alone DVD player, if you can, check to make sure there are audio inputs on the back of the receiver. If there are no audio inputs on the receiver, you will have to get the entire surround system replaced. If so, purchase a separate DVD player and surround system.

I have the Yamaha 5890. I recently had the cable

Check to see if the tech switched your tv's settings for VID 1, VID2 etc, then check the box to see if the right settings are in there, ususlly done with the box off and using the setup or menu buttons with the tv on, lastly see if the box will work as a stand alone hook it up to the tv the old fashioned way and see if it works if s you may need to replace a video cable.

Confusion connecting my receiver to the RCA255 dvd receiver for cd use

Ok is your cash converters purchase a RCA, RTD255 system or is the RCA255 you quote something else, I'll assume that we are dealing with the first, and that seems to be a All in one system that contains speaks amp etc

You also have your new AVR 310 which is amplifier that one would connect a stand alone DVD/CD player to, You wouldn't connect the cash converter purchase to it, it is a seperate system.

You could use your cash converter system alone without the AVR310 but not with it.


you have to find one that somebody has audiobahn dosnt carry them any more i called them today for mine but no luck
