    help me out, indash dvd related.

    I bought a Dual in dash dvd player. So i put it in my car no prob.

    Now i try to watch a movie and i get a screen that says i need to have the handbrake on. So the manual said connect the wire to the handbrake. So i did and it worked for a while then it stoped working. So i checked everything and it still dident work. Then i re-wired it to my power mirrors and it worked. Now this morning it stoped working. So i tried to connecting ti back to the handbrake but it still not working.

    Has anyone done this before and know were i should wire it to?

    on a dual indash you can bypass the e-brake feature by grounding the brake wire out (connect it to the ground wire) now on some of the new duals if you read the installation instructions there is a step by step process on setting up the e-brake function ie. turn ignition on, set brake and release brake all within 5 seconds. then ground the wire out and you now have video while driving.
    almost forgot, if you want to bypass it you would turn the igintion on, tap the wire to ground, release and then connect it to ground

    i'm using the same deck right now

    it has a "sequence" they call it in order to bypass it

    mine is hooked up to a switch

    the deck must be powered on with the wire grounded, then to watch video you unground the wire for 3-5 seconds, then re-ground it

    if you hook it upto the parking brake this means you must power the deck on with the ebrake engaged, then dissengage it, then re-engage it a few seconds later

    if you use a switch, it's much easier and will allow your passengers to watch video while on the road

    **** now im lost.......

    I have been having problems with my dual din as well. this maybe it.

    From what I have diagnosed My indash will not power on at times if the car has been sitting like overnight , soo I go under the hood and disconnect the battery and like 10 seconds later reconnect it. That seems to make it work about 90% of the time. But Im still haveing a hard time understanding this so-called sequence, and grounding technique.

    the sequence is simple bro

    hook up the wire to a switch, run the other lead on the switch to a ground

    before the deck is powered on, make sure the switch is turned on/grounded. after you've put in whatever video and the blue screen pops up, flip the switch to the off/ungrounded position for about 5 seconds, then flip it back on/grounded and poof, your video will work untill you turn your car back off

    if you have it hooked to your e-brake, use the same sequence only subsituting the grounded position of the switch with setting the e-brake and vise versa

    OK, get yourself a toggle switch, connect it to your radio using the ebrake wire. then get another wire, connect it to the same switch, and ground the other end of that wire. now when you turn your car on it'll say something like it cannot be viewed when its moving, just flip that switch and it should work. simple what kind of indash is it btw?

    no, that will NOT work on these decks

    it's VERY picky

    the wire from the deck must be grounded when the deck is powered on! if it is not you will have to power down the deck, ground out the wire, and then re-power the deck

    once the deck has been powered on with the wire allready grounded, then insert the dvd and wait for the blue screen telling you that you cannot watch video with the vehicle moving

    THEN you flip the switch and in doing so unground the wire. leave it in this position for 5 seconds

    THEN flip the switch back on grounding the wire once again. leave it in this position with the wire grounded to continue to watch video

    if you dont follow these steps exactly, it wont work

    this is referring to the newer dual/jensen systems

    my switch is nex to my shifter

    there's a few factory grounding points behind the deck
    i ran a wire from one of those grounding points and the wire from the deck down under the trim pieces and hooked them upto the switch

    i knew i should have taken pictures of the install

    if you're talking about the little black wire that has a clip on the end that hooks to the mounting bracket for the deck itself then yes, that'll work too

    i'll try to get a pic for you in the morning
