Wiring in dash screen: How-to...need help!
I am a complete noob on these forums having only found them today, but it all appears to be right up my street!
Anyway, im skint and like to do everything really cheap, so i just bought an in dash screen off eBay for 25 quid. It was sold as untested and so the guy didnt know if it worked... well it arrived today, its made by addzest (clarion in japan).
I'm planning on just hooking up my PS2 to it but after wiring it up the best i could i wasnt getting an image. It came with a connector to plug it into OE wires but obviously these weren't for my car so i had to hack them up... all car wire colours are universal as far as i know so i just twisted the ones that match together! there was an orange one and a blue one with yellow stripes and a red line down it left over.
well anyway, the system powers up and it is motorized (but you have to swivel it yourself) and on the screen it only says AUDIO PROG. ONLY.
I had my PS2 video (yellow) plugged into it and thats all... well after searching through all the 62 channels, on 3 modes TVX1, TVX2 and VTR i had no change what-so-ever. Any ideas?
The only thing i can think of is that on its wiring thing i hacked up, there were also some speaker coloured wires... Imagine the end that goes from the unit, this then joins to 2 other connectors (one male, one female) These 2 other connectors have speaker wires running between them (front left and right). There is no direct link between these speaker wires and the unit si i cant hook them up... could this be to do with the AUDIO PROG ONLY message?
I think the screen works fine as it is inA1 condition, but without a manual or wiring instructions im struggling.
