    The red is +12 switch to av1 for backup camera. That I can confirm working on mine.

    Black is auto display dimming but I did not hook up mine so cannot confirm it's +12v to activate, but supposed to connect to headlights... when on, screen dims.

    AV1 is the yellow RCA

    Thx rray for the tips. Attached pic of bottom layout. Reading the manual to the p.s. and coming up with the wiring scheme.

    I need to do some research on the psu, as Greg send me an email about the output side being reversed, and it looks like the input side was also reversed, and perhaps fixed by the manufacturer? Is this something you did Greg? Definitely something funky going on here, as there is continuity between the ground lead and the fuse... and also continuity between IGN and VIN, and continuity between VIN and ground out. Glad I took a close look at this PSU before putting power to it, or connecting anything to it.

    Hey Joe. No I didn't change any of the wiring but received that email from the PSU company so I sent it your way.

    That's all I have brother...

    I'm going to contact the manufacturer and figure it out as the manual is not much help.

    Not really surprised, but the manufacturer never responded to my inquiries. So I did more testing and traced leads and came to the conclusion that the inputs were reversed. This was correct, and the input wires were correct originally , somewhere along the line someone cut and solidered them backwards? Anyway, glad I got it figured out so I can progress on the remainder if the build.

    At least you can do your own troubleshooting

    So far in the previous pics I had it hooked up HDMI to a dvd player and finally got to do a burn in with all the hardware using VGA. Monitor is really good, the USB ribbon connector is slightly loose but I'll put a dab of silicone or expoxy on it to hold it closed. Manufacturer email back today and told me the out put was reversed, which is wrong because the input was the side actually reversed. I again requested a pin out but now I'll just make my own.

    Looking very good Joe! Keep the pics coming. Can't wait to see the final product! Looks like you removed that bulky right angle VGA connector. Did removing it allow for easier maneuvering?
