View Full Version : Monitor wiring

06-08-2004, 06:18 PM
I am trying to wire separate monitor and DVD player units into my car and the monitor came with really primitive chinese wiring instructions. The monitor has a power harness that has four wires: black ground -12v, yellow +12v(they call it "now and again") which I assume is power only when ignition is on, red 12+, and black 0v. What I need to know is what is the black 0v lead supposed to attach to? Never seen one before. Thanks, Victor.

dont know, mine had three wires, 12v, ground and one that went to the video selecter. Maybe if you gave the product number then someone could help more.

Yeah that's what I was gonna say. There's gotta be a remote turn on somewhere. I'm bettin' that's it.

I just got an innovatek deck.

and i cant get a blue screen or menu or picture. Just a lit gray screen and the time..

the ****ing chinese garbled into english is killing me

4 wires, Red, Black, Yellow, Green.. tells me the red and yellow are 12v the black is ground and the green is a ground..

grounded the black and green together... no picture..

do i have to ground them seperatly?

only thing i can think of is the 'remote turn-on'i doubt a monitor would have a remote turn on wire that would mean that it would power on everytime the source was on.. think amp remote turn on.. as long as there is a 12v constant the monitor is getting juice, it should have a power button which turns the signal on/off independent of the source unit..
Give y a an example. my pioneer in dash monitor is playing a cd, my rear flipdown can be turned on but gets no signal( video signal) and it will show a prompt with this message cuz the pioneer is not in video mode..
