The speculation on this webpage:
makes it sound like it is a trigger to switch the monitor to display a rear-facing camera when you put the car into reverse. You would either wire it to a manual switch (to 12v) or to your reverse lights.

That worries me when the fuses dont`t blow,otherwise I would have told you you made the wrong connections or did not ground enough. You can find fuses in any hardware stores and if your purchase is recent, have it replaced or get your money back. I suspect something wrong with the item. Or go to place where they are specialized in installing DVD monitors in cars; they`d tell you if it`s blown up or not. My TView monitor is really blown up and I am trying to find out if it can be fixed. My warranty has expired and I am kind of stucked.
This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc.
Go to the source of your cable signal connector .
Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires.
