    in car screen,help needed

    Hi im new on here and need a little help with my in car screen and hope someone can help.
    right i got a 5.6" lcd monitor it has a yellow rca for video in and then red wire for live and black one for ground.I plugged the yellow rca from screen into the yellow rca on back of car stereo and left the red and black rca from my sub still in the back of stereo and thought i would then get sound from my tv through my car speakers but nothing is this the correct way?
    As if so then i know problem lies with lcd monitor.Thanks.

    Does the lcd monitor have a built in tv tuner?Or does the car stereo have a built in tv tuner? Do you at least get a picture on the srceen from the head unit and no sound? Does the head unit have an AUX in? A little more info about your set up will help greatly

    Connect the RED and White RCA's to AUX in on your stereo. To do this you just need to buy an RCA-3.5mm jack adaptor($2-$5) which are easily available at any electronics store/ebay etc. Obviously the 3.5mmjack side is the one that goes into your stereo's Aux. The RCA plugs that are on the back of your stereo for your sub/amp is an output only not an input like your Aux is. Does your screen have a red and a white RCA? From what im reading you have Yellow(video) Red(right audio) and White(left audio) RCA's and a Red and Black cable for power. Correct? If that is the case. Just follow the steps from above

    Based on this, there is no audio out from the screen. That makes this a monitor, not a TV.

    Here's the dumb question of the morning....
    Did you read the instruction manual that came with the screen?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
