FAQ On Car Radio DVD GPS Stereo

Postby admin » Tue Dec 15, 2015 9:11 am

This topic is created to tell you the correct way to run our Car Radio DVD GPS Players. Besides, it will teach you how to solve the common operation problems. You may find the solution via the following posts if you have any simple problem with your item.

Cable Connection

Please correctly connect the cable according to the connection diagram on the top surface of your item.

Power cable

There are three power wires in the ISO wiring harness, they are red, yellow and black. Please connect red wire with the ignition wire. Yellow wire has to be connected to constant 12V power supply. And black wire is for the negative power.
If your item has steering wheel control function, it should have three steering wheel control wires(except for can bus interface controlled head units) which are also two positive and one negative. Please pay attention not to mix up the power cable and steering wheel control cable, or your item will be burned.

Brake cable

The brake cable should be connected to your car's hand brake. In this way you will only be allowed to watch videos when parking your car. To meet your front passenger's demand of watching videos while you are driving, you can connect the brake cable to your car's negative power. But we strongly suggest drivers not to watch videos while driving.

Audio cable

There are 4 pairs of audio wires in the ISO wiring harness, they are grey, green, white and purple. You need to connect each pair to the corresponding car speaker. For example, connect the white pair of wires to the front left speaker, one for the positive and the other for the negative.
Please don’t let the wires touch each other. You can put some insulating tape on them, especially for those unused wires.


This item has a RES button (normally on the front panel or behind the front panel). You can press the RES button whenever your item has any system problem, then it will restore to factory defaults.

Switch On

Once you connect the power cable correctly, the power light will turn Red. Then you can press the SRC button on the front panel to turn on your item.
If the power light doesn’t turn red, please check the power cable connection. And please make sure the voltage of your vehicle’s power is between 12v-14v.
If the power light turns red but your item can’t be turned on by pressing the SRC button, please try to switch on by the remote control, and please check whether your vehicle’s power is between 12v-14v.

Motorized Panel

If your item has a motorized panel, it will allow you to adjust its screen’s angle. Besides, such panel has position memory. When you restart, the panel will turn back to the last angle.
If your panel doesn’t keep the position memory, please check the power cable connection. Pay attention that the yellow wire has to be connected to constant 12V power supply, or no memory will be kept.

Touch Screen

If your touch screen reacts slowly or incorrectly, a simple calibration may sort it out. Different models' calibration settings are in different interfaces. Please try to find out your item's calibration setting, or tell us its model.
If there is no response after clicking the onscreen buttons, please try to loosen the screws around the front panel, since this problem may be caused by the over pressure of those tight screws.


Put a CD/DVD disk in and turn to DVD mode, you can enjoy your favorite music and movies by this item.
If your disk can’t be put in, please check whether the protective screw on the top of your item has been removed.
If your disk can’t be read, please try other CD and DVD disks, in case your first disk is a scratched one or its format can’t be supported.
If you can’t hear any voice, please try other disks, turn up volume, unmute the speakers and check the audio cable connection.
If there is any noise, please try other disks, check the audio cable connection and prevent the wires from touching each other.


Clicking the radio icon on the touch screen, you can enter the radio mode. To memorize your favorite stations, please hold the station buttons.
If your radio doesn’t work well, please check whether it’s in the right frequency area (normally you can find it in the setup menu). Besides, please check whether your radio antenna has been plugged in, and whether the signal is strong enough.
