Recommended Posts

I don't own an Altezza, but if I did I'd probably search the web for "drive and view".

what do you mean? You need to be specific here, do you mean:

1) the power is not on?

2) the power is on, but the screen is black?

3) the power is on, but the screen shows another color but blank?

if you are asking about getting "tv" reception, then its not supposed to.

You cannot play dvd on it, unless you have modded the tv itself.

Hi Taz,

Is it easy to bypass the tuner and use a dvd player? I plan on removing the standard hu with an after market, so i would have a spare slot to stick a dvd player into.

wel i actually use mine through the standard head unit it works like tv would press TV button screen folds out on its own and it plays sound from normal speaker this solves EER3 problem if u have it

just use dvd player 2 play cds mp3 etc

the main cost of this is dvd player (mine cost £60)

but i wouldnt know how to work dvd with screen if you remove standard hu

Are you using th GPS screen to watch the dvds? The factory one that pops up from the dash?

So if i leave in the standard HU, how do i hook up a dvd player to it?

do all yo guys know were the tv tuner is

If not its located in the boot on nearside post bolted to the side

it has 4 wiring plugs attached and 1 un used

out of the the 4 you will need to modify 2 of them

1 for sound(inputs to H U)

2 for picture

after doing this tv tuner will no longer work (u will get no fuzzy picture or sound from it)

lookin at ur pictures ur wiring is diferent 2 mine

because i have a module between oem wiring block and oem tv tuner

in this case i can try 2 work u thru it but no promises

if u look at YOUR tv tuner pic it has a wiring block with 12 wires

on that block the first 4 wires from left are sound inputs

once u connect your wiring to these 4 wires this will work as aux inputs but you will only here when you use TV button on your head unit.

then u need a video input which is were it gets complicated because u aint got enough wires mine on the second wiring block on tv tuner.

mine has 5 wires yours only has 4 of which 1 is cut

i have wired video -ve to wire 3 without chopin its conection with tuner (which u dont have)

i have wired video +ve to wire 5(urs is green) by chopin connection with tuner and conecting it direct to video +ve.

i will have a play about with mine and try to work out a solution for you(on weekend).

i have my DVD player mounted in glove box(if u find a bettter place to mount please let me know)

it works like MAGIC

Cool i have another look at my wiring and try to figure that out. Are your speakers amplified with an external amp, located behind the glove box? Not all models have them. This could explain the difference between wiring schemes.

no m8 mine dont have amp its 1 without

but i dont think that should matter the sound wire from tv tuner should be same

the only differnce in my opinion is my tv tuner has a converter betwee wiring but some one has converted yours coz on the second wirin block which is different mine only has 4 wires before converter

Ok so how does your dvd player get its power?

Are the cables from the dvd player RCA output?

So i should get an RCA lead going from the dvd player, chop off the plugs at one end and wire them into the block that i disconnected the tv tuner from, they way you described above.
