Problem with sunvisor monitor . . .
Posted 25 Feb 2007 - 16:33
I'm sorry to have to start my first post with a problem, but i'm hoping someone can help me because i'm fast running out of ideas and it's now getting to the point where i just want to rip the bl**dy lot out and leave it. Right rant over . . . . my problem . . . . .
I have installed two sunvisor monitors in my car. They are running off a DVD head unit. The signal is split via a simple 'Y' lead. Now when i first installed the TV's they worked absolutely fine. I was impressed with the quality and was dead chuffed.
A couple of months ago i took my car in for some work on the bodywork. Now the company obviously dis-connected the battery as all the stereo settings had re-set etc. Now the one really odd thing is, now when i switch the DVD player on and the two screens one of the screens is in black & white and the menus are in Japanese or something, but the other one is in colour and in English.
I have tried re-wiring the whole system so as to start a fresh. I have also tried running just the one screen straight to the DVD player but with the same results. through powers of elimination i'm now convinced it something to do with the screen, but can't find any sort of menu for changing any settings ??
Oh yeah, not sure whether this has any relevance, but i noticed today that the screen that works ok is running on 'channel 1' or something, and the screen that's not working correctly is running on 'channel 2'.
here is a pic of the screens when they were working . . . . .
i hope that all makes sense . . .any help is VERY welcome !!

the 'destructions' for these are a bit 'sparse'

See if there are any reset buttons on the visor or any mention of settings in the manual. If all else fails maybe call the company you purchased the screens from.
What brand and model are they?
Clarion HX-D2/DLS Nob 5.2/IDMAX12/Genesis DM/DMX

this is the car from the outside ........
i know your all going to shudder, but they were from e-bay.
i've got the boxes and they are brand new, but bizzarely there is no manufacturers name on the box.
No mention of a reset either.
I did look for one but couldn't find one. . . . . . i think i better pop out to the car and have another good look . . . .
