Screens not working

My video screens for my car dvd player are not working. I have tried switching the cables and screens around. I'm now assuming that it is a problem with the dvd player itself. The screens don't even appear to power up; however, I can hear the disc spinning in the dvd player. Is it just time to get a new player? Thanks, Mel

    exactly the same symptoms. The Main unit apears to be working ok, the screens just dont power up at all. I have sometimes had a problem with one screen in the past, and its just a case of adjusting the leads (pushing in helped rectify previous times). But both screens aren't doing anything regardless of what I do now. I really don't want to order the leads only as they can be expensive if the screens are busted.

Tv screen turns black and red when playing through pioneer receiver

Usually when I hear of solid colors that display on a TV, my first solution would be to change the cable. We know your DVD player is working as you connected it straight to your TV and you report no problems. I assume you are using a composite cable (red, white, and yellow) Red and White being the Audio and Yellow your video.

But since your player works...and your tv works under the same input, then the only other issue would be the output cable from the receiver or the actual composite input or output connector is faulty.

try a video game system in place of the dvd player through your receiver..if it happens again, then change the receiver's output cable...if it still persists then your reciever's output connector is faulty.

I hope this helps.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

- I have sound but no image. My screen is white. Ican hear, but can't see I have the ynex dvd 7" dX-BPDVD7 I've charged it last night and it happene within an hour of playing.


Some DVD players have a switch that allows you to choose video or s-video output. You could check the position of the switch (if you have one). Your audio cables may be good but your video cable could be bad (I assume you are using a standard three cable setup with coloured hoods: right audio red, left audio white and video yellow). Your DVD player could be defective.
Also check whether you have activated progressive scan function by mistake or not, because if you do it you need to deactivate it.
Try turning on the DVD with no disc on the tray then push the stop button for 5 sec .

Please get back to us if you have any further query or else accept the solution.

I just set up my Pioneer AVH-P4100DVD in my 2001 GMC Sierra and I cannot watch DVD's. The DVD reads, but nothing appears on the screen. Additionally, it shows the warning symbol regarding driving and...

read the manuel, there is always some way to turn off this feature

i.e. if the player thinks the car is on it might it assume its being driven

other than that mess around with the options

How do I disable the parking brake safety feature on a jensen VM8113 car dvd player?

I have this exact same unit, here's what you do:

1) Cut the little weird "do-hickey" off the end of the pink wire so that the wire looks like all the other wires.

2) Strip some of the coating from around the tip of the wire (so the wire is exposed).

3) Ground that wire to the unit itself under one of the clips or something (as long as its metal).

4) Pop a dvd in and it will play irregardless of the parking brake position.

5) This definitely works, however, I'm assuming this is so your family can watch and not you, right?

Dvd's play in black and white

Make sure the video connector between the DVD player and the TV is pushed all the way in. If that doesn't help, try switching video cables (if you don't have any extras, they are REALLY cheap). Then try switching DVD players (if you don't have or want to buy another, just borrow someones).

If it isn't the DVD player, it's the TV. Assuming everything else is working (regular TV is in color) you should be able to fix it by changing what video plug type you use (IE: switch from S-video to component or HDMI).

Black and white picture

Try going into player's menu, and set video out or TV type to NTSC.
It might have switched to PAL, or disc is PAL and player is set to any.

Samsung TXJ2754 (27") DVD issues (Sound but no Picture)

Assuming you have picture on the TV when hooked up to cable, antenna or satellite I would take the DVD player to a friends house to see if it worked on their set (using your cables of course). If you can't get a picture on your TV no matter what, then it could be either the Jungle IC or EEPROM IC inside the set. Since it displays "No Video Signal" on the screen, that leaves out the High Voltage section of the TV. My main suspicion would be the video cable or settings on the DVD or TV.

DVD Plays in Black and White

Depending what cables you have, try plugging only the yellow cable into "video out", I previously had red, white, and yellow cables plugged into "comopents out" and only got black and white. Doing only the yellow into video out gave me color.
