    Xenarc officialy the tuffest screen out there

    Well, Xenarc truly deserves an award for this one.
    I was sure i fried my screen when smoke started coming out of it. Anyone would think that.
    To be clear on what happened, i recently installed a reverse camera and for the power i decided to put a RCA connector (for easy disconnect/connect). I soldered it on and bent the tab to hold the wire. Now i never noticed that when i bent the tab, it actualy broke thru the jacket and created a short, sending a nice deadly 12v to my screen's aux input. I was ****ed !

    I didn't dare to try again in fear of making things worst but i took the courage and tried once more, this time soldering the wire solid with shrink tubing. I turn the thing on and blamo IT STILL WORKS !!!!!

    After sending a nasty 12v to my aux input, it still works.

    Thank you so much Xenarc for making such high quality product

    AUX input probably has capacitor connected in line. Probably you just burned your capacitor

    But Xernac is the best anyway !

    Interestesg....A similar thing happend to me. I reversed the power connection to my backup camera and noticed smoke coming out the back of my Xenarc. I assumed that the aux inputs were fried, I'll hook it up again (correctly this time and see if the aux input still works.
