So i got two headrest screens, came out of my brothers car.
From the monitor i got the wiring
blue with another blue wire in it
red with another red wire in it
from my video input i have on one side the power wiring coming out and one side to monitor
red wire with pink wire in it
so the problem i have is how do i connect these wires from the monitor to the harness thing with video input
please help me find out with wires connect to which ones!!!!
monitors are myron and davis
model : am-056PN/PP-C
ok, it looks like you have a A/V monitor with 2 RCA...err... coaxial inputs.
how about for the monitor itself:
RED-inside RCA AV1(2?) Plug inner
RED-outside RCA AV2(1?) Plug outer
and that other thing... I'm guessing but:
Red-12V- goes to red
silver-gnd- goes to black
Red with pink goes to one of the 2 A/V inputs outside to outside, inside to inside.
orange??? ACC? -goes to brown?
Something like that? I don't know for sure, I've never dealt with that brand.
ya its not straight forward.
there is no red coming from the monitor
i tried to power it up but nothing
Did you ever get the AM-056PN wiring identified? I have a couple of these monitors as well and I took one apart to see if I could figure out the connections, no dice I hope to use the remaining monitor w/ a color underwater camera as a fun project - trying to connect 12VDC and and RCA video signal connector - had no luck at all - perhaps you have?...
Have a great day!
I have one of these that I just got working. First of all, the wiring colors do not map to what you would think:
Bare wire in outer casing: Ground
Red: Video signal (outer wire is video signal ground)
Blue: Audio signal (outer wire is audio signal ground)
Brown wire (just leave unconnected.)
To figure this out, I used a variable voltage power supply and connected it to what I thought may be the correct leads and then slowly turned up the voltage while watching the current. When the current starts to increase quickly without the voltage increase then you know that this is a short and you back off before doing damage.
The red and blue wires are coaxial and so you should never apply power to these. You may have damaged your unit but then, maybe it was protected and you are ok. You'll just have to try!
Have a nice day!
