Question about Pioneer AVH-P5700DVD Car DVD Player

4 Answers

Sound No Video

It plays DVD's you will see the touchscreen buttons but no video even when parking brake is up, if you attach another monitor it shows on the extra monitor. If  you sends video thru the AUX connector it shows in the indash screen but when using DVD's its just blank but still accepts touch commands.  Is there a way it could be ressetted (try the reset button already) is it a function turned on/off?

    Eveything works its just that the backlight doesnt turn on to see the touch buttons. but if you tilt it to the light you can see the buttons but you cant see the dvds even with the brake.

You have to put the aux option ON in the menu.
1. Go to the menu, click on the third option to your left
2. The next menu will appear, click on the AV option
3. Select on

This should work now when you put the DVD in the unit, Also make sure that the parking brakes are up, or parking by-pass in working properly

I have a dual xdvd700, and I have the same deal going on, I mean, everything would work, but no image.
Is this a fuse that died or something?
What should I do?

Sound works but there is no display on the monitor. it worked for the first few days then now cant see nothing. Does the park brake wire have to be hooked up in order to show the display cause i know it...

  • Yes it does. The emergency brake wire is a safety feature. If you don't have it hooked up it won't even display anything. If you do have it hooked up then you have to have the emergency brake engaged to be able to view DVD'S. The manufacturer does this so people can't just unhook the brake wire and watch DVD'S while driving

My jensen vm9324 plays dvds but the monitor does not come on, it has the warning screen

Your "Emergency Parking" wire is disconnected. You need to connect it to your parking brake, or you can also connect it to Parking switch if you have automatic transmission. You can play video only when parked

There is a workaround though...

Warning: In most states in US law bill bans drivers from operating televisions and video screens in their line of vision while the vehicle is moving.

Due to the law you can use this workaround at your own risk:

1. You can just ground the parking brake wire to your radio, and you are done.


2. You can adjust factory settings
  • Go to""Setup", and then to "Screen" menu
  • with your remote press 543210, this will show a hidden menu
  • now set the parking brake menu from "off" to "on".and exit the menu
  • NOTE: disconnecting the car battery will reset the code to default "off" state.

Kenwood kvt-719dvd plays dvd but wont show picture

It is probably that the parking safety wire wasn't hooked up properly, or at all. Most in dash dvd players are equipped with a motion safety device to prohibit the driver from viewing movies and such on the monitor while the vehicle is in motion. The wire for this needs to be hooked to the parking brake light wiring. This will ensure that when the parking brake is on, the dvd can sense that the vehicle is stopped, and should therefore show the image.

It wont play dvds or any kind of video

Having the car in "park" is not the key. The unit needs to see a 'ground' on the light green wire that attaches to the parking brake. (see manual). You can get around this by installing a toggle switch OR a relay that will user the 'amp remote' wire as the trigger.

No video from ipod

Do you have the green cord that attaches to the parking break hooked up?
This stereo is designed so that you cannot watch videos while driving, therefore you need to have the parking break on in order to get video.
when you play a dvd with out the parking break on, you will only get sound.

I have a dual brand car monitor stereo that won''t show dvd

hi there
well to start the e-brake will need to be applied to allow you to see the video if it was installed over ride this feature you need a toggle switch with 3 pins on it
on the toggle switch there should be two logos (power & ground) if you run a small wire from the red wire from the back of your in-dash system to the toggle switch (power) and do the same for the black wire (ground wire)..........the last pin on toggle switch you attach the e-brake wire from the back of your in-dash system to the toggle switch pin and turn it on video will play
if this doesn't work switch the e-brake and ground wire around on the toggle switch
hope this helped
