    hi i just installed my new in car in dash dvd/cd/tv everythings ok with the system however i have 1 problem, my
    old stereo was connected slightly differently and everytime i turn my lights
    on it goes onto reverse camera, though i have no camera installed!
    is there anyway to disable this function? or a way to neutralise the parking
    and reverse light wires so it is not connected to my lights or parking in
    any way.
    Also is there a way to stop the system going into the 'picture off for your
    safety' mode it doesnt happen at the moment as parking and reverse wires are
    wrongly connected but obviously if theres no way to neutralise or disable
    them then this will get annoying for my passengers!

    if anyone can help please let me know

    loom is incorrectly wired.

    The green cable is the PWD BRK/SW on/off for the headunit safely feature. To disable this connect to - earth/negative.

    As for the camera, I'm assuming you have connected this to the pink cable. Please remove from pink and connect to red/yellow/orange etc.

    I fitted a ripspeed dvd/tello combo today.

    btw Halfords are knocking them out at 250 they rrp at 700!
