That is because it has a safety on it to where you can only watch videos when in park. It doesnt want you watching movies while driving. Easy to bypass if you know what your doing. There is probably a wire on the back of the stereo that is in a bundle that you did not use? It should be relatively long. Maybe add a bit of length to it with some more wire and hook it to the ground on your battery if that doesnt work put it on the positive. Sorry i remember doing this in my camaro dont remember if its pos or neg but you are suppose to hook that wire to somthing on the parking break. Hooking it straight to the battery will bypass the parking break safety.

My new radio plays every thing but when i put a dvd it says warning please stop watch vedio player . you can hear the movie but there is no picture


the parking brake wire must be connected to the parking brake system of you car. When the parking brake is engages, the LCD will be allowed to view your video. If not, the screen will produce an image saying, parking brake. this is a feature designed for the driver not to watch a video while driving. The video output on this unit will not be affected by this, el wire to connect is Pink - parking brake. this is wire connect with ground.

How can I watch dvd on my kenwood radio while I drive


you have to bypass the parking brake safety switch. Basically, right now it is wired to the ground on your parking brake. Figure out where it is by following the wire from the head unit. Disconnect it, and connect the parking brake wire to the ground for the radio itself.

Bypass parking brake wire


Boss Audio is the easiest in-dash DVD on the market to bypass; all you do is ground the ebrake wire. I recently installed 12 Boss Audio in-dash BV-7300's and did this to all of the decks problem solved. By the way I did this because they were in the back of limousines where the driver couldn't ever even see one of them while he was driving. I don't think there will be a problem, try it.

How To Bypass The Brake Switch To Watch Videos While Driving?


Clarify please-does the screen show "Audio Only" when a DVD is inserted? If so, this is because the parking brake lead is not set up to work. Normally, the green lead connects to the parking brake negative on the car. This means you don't get video unless the parking brake is set. To bypass this, you need to wire the green parking brake lead to one terminal on a toggle switch, then you run a wire from the radio ground lead to the other terminal. toggle the switch up and down and you should have video. You can get a pretty small toggle switch and mount it in a concealed place.
This is by no means advocating watching video while driving!!!!

Irst thing to check is to Make sure Parking brake lead (green) is being grounded properly otherwise safety message should appear on display notifying you and You will get no DVD video only audio Refer to owners manual on this issue. If that does not do it you may try resetting unit look for small Round hole on front of radio. Depress with pen point.
Just a couple guesses.
