Good. It is a grand set. Keep it. Never allow anybody even to touch on it.

This is one video lock condition that you need to bypassed. In THIS LINK can find the solution: Jensen-Video-Bypass-Lockout-VM9214-VM9414-VM9324

I heard this same problem, if it plays when its parked then it has a little safety feature that involves a wire, maybe pink in color for your headunit that will only allow it to play when parked. Now if you splice it into the red or yellow, I'd choose red since its not constant, it will play movies anytime.

If it won't play them even when parked then it is not hooked up to a wire or its hooked up to ground and therefor should be hooked to a positive wire, red or yellow. If you didn't put it in yourself then you can take it to an audio shop, maybe check in phonebook for someone local.

But the easy way would be to use a bypass code since there is ojne for your hu. I copy these instructions from The parking brake bypass procedure is as follows:
1: Go into AM/FM mode
2: Hit "setup" on the remote control
3: Enter 543210 on the remote, listening for the beep for each number entered
4: A new menu will appear. Touch the button that has the hammer/screwdriver on it in the upper left-hand part of the screen.
5: Select Brake bypass to "ON" and hit the "X" near the bottom of the screen.
6: Use the unit wisely and above all safely. A ticket is one thing, causing a fatal accident due to negligence is another.

I don't know if it really works but you could try it, if not use the wiring method above:

Hope helps.

Hi timkilian,

If your iPod won't play, it might caused by some setting on your Jensen vm9214. Also please ensure that your iPod has the latest Apple firmware to avoid any connectivity issue. Please visit this link for additional information on how to operate the iPod on the Jensen VM9214.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Did you connect the power, ground and accessory? When doing a bench test for operation, these wires need to be connected.

Why is my My Jensen VM9214 stuck on camera mode

Check your wires, theres a wire for the reverse if your going to use a back up camera, if not do not connect it, you may have had it connected through a speaker wire, if so then thats your issue and once you wire it up right it wont do that any more, had the same issue and thats what fixed it hope this helps

Hav this player nd it does not respond to touchin the screen (touch screen dosent work)..remote works fine

The touch screen in most cases will need to be replaced because it developes a short in the membrane making it inoperative. Since you have a remote and you have full access I recommend using it the way it is. However if you wish to track down the part, ebay is a good source for parts and may have what you are looking for.

I would like to replace the flatwire ribbon that connects the screen to the unit. It is cut. Do you have the part number or location wher I can purchase this part?

go to jensen online they should have the part you are looking for take the old one out and go buy the pics on the site count the wires and plug pins and try to match the colors cause sometimes they will change good luck

My jensen vm9214 will play my music from my ipod but it will not show a display of the song or anything and when I click pause or play or fast forward on the screen it doea not do it so I have to play and...

First off, is the unit equiped as ipod ready or are you using an auxillary input. If your unit is ipod ready, this means it has the ipod cable to the unit. If you are using an auxillary input, it won't show the name and yes you will have to control your music from the ipod itself. Just some things to think about. If your unit is malfunctioning, I recommend visiting the local stereo shop.

Red light comes on but the unit wount turn on

The red light is associated with the memory (constant 12 volt power). You also need switched 12 volt power (power with key turned to accessory)for the unit to turn on. If you installed the system yourself, you are looking for 12 volts on the red wire of the Jensen unit. If power exists at the unit, check the fuse of the unit and the fuse of the vehcile.

How do I get GPS & bluetooth stufff to go with this system ?

You need the Jenson BTM15 (bluetooth module) and the Jensen NAV105 (gps) in order to have navigation and bluetooth connectivity thru this head unit.

These units sell for around $50 (btm15) and $200 (nav102) on
