What kind of connector do you use ? SCART, RCA composite or S-video ? Looks like cable or connector problem

    There are three video inputs, Aux1, Aux2 and NAV in. Are the setting correct (page 36 of the manual)?

    There is also possiblity to display a video but the sound is from another source, maybe the setting is incorrect (page 39 of the manual)

    Do you have the manual, if not I can sent it to you.

    The system is equipped with a safety interlock that prevents the driver from watching while the vehicle is moving. Page 23 describes the procedure to disengage the safety interlock, there is a sequence - foot brake on- handbrake on-handbrake off-Handbrake off- footbrake off.

    The simplest way to disable it is to connect the brake wires (4and 11) to 2 switches connected to the plus12v and simulate ther brake sequences.

    Be forewarned that watching video while driveing is dangerous and illegal in many places !

DVD wont show picture i can hear sound but its just a blank screen

The emergency break wire is not connected correctly. This wire needs to be grounded to a chassis ground. Or the Yellow video cable is not connected or is not working correctly.

Video input from dvd player shows as black screen w/ squigly color lines

have you tried other devices for input...vcr, or other dvd players to see if it is a problem with the player or with the tv? Check the output setting for the dvd player (1080i etc) and ensure you are connecting to the proper inputs for either analog or digital signals (RCA inputs or RGB).
