Owner’s Manual
A. Introduction
The DV9000 is a self-contained entertainment center for your vehicle which
will make your road trips enjoyable. This versatile floor console incorporates a
9” color TV with a built-in DVD Player, complete with speakers, foil antenna,
external antenna jack, headphone jacks, AV inputs, AV outputs and a remote
control. The DV9000 is easily installed between the front seats of any mini or
full size van. The console is constructed to provide years of enjoyment. Standardized design and manufacture ensures reliability and longevity. Please read
the following instructions thoroughly for correct installation and proper operation. Store this manual in a convenient and safe place for future reference.
B. Cautions and Warnings
1. Installation
In order to maintain a safe mounting arrangement, this console must be secured to the floor of the vehicle according to Installation Guide contained in
this manual. Failure to do so may result in the console becoming a projectile
in the event of an accident.
Before working under the vehicle, block the wheels to prevent accidental move
ment of the vehicle which could result in injury. Before drilling any holes in the
vehicle, verify that the drill bit will not damage the frame rail(s) of the vehicle,
electrical wires, fuel lines, brake lines, hoses, exhaust system components or
any other items that will impair the operation of the vehicle. The console must
be secured to the floor panel of the vehicle. Check under the vehicle to ensure
that the holes will be in the proper locations. Also check under the carpet to
ensure that there are no wiring harnesses, fuel lines, etc. that could be damaged when drilling through the floor of the vehicle.
2. Power
Use only the supplied power cable supplied with this set to avoid electric
hazards. Always disconnect the unit from the cigarette lighter socket when it
is not in use.
2
3. Discs
Do not use irregularly shaped discs such as heart-or star-shaped discs as
they may cause the unit to malfunction. Do not stick paper, tape or glue on
the disc. Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat sources such as
hot air ducts. Do not touch the surface of disc. Handle the disc by its edge.
Clean the disc by wiping the disc from the center out with a clean cloth.
Remove the disc from the unit and store it in its case after playing. Some
playback operations of discs may be intentionally fixed by software producers. Since this unit plays discs according to the disc contents the software
producers designed, some playback features may not be available. Also refer to the instructions supplied with the discs.
4.TV Reception
Due to the nature of TV signals, the vehicle’s motion, the direction the vehicle
is facing, the distance from transmitters, nearby surroundings and weather
may adversely affect TV reception. These conditions may result in picture roll,
poor reception (snowy picture) and momentary loss of color (especially when
the vehicle is in motion).
5. Headphones
Use caution when children wear headphones; as becoming entangled in the
wires could present a hazard.
6. Objects and Liquids
Keep strong magnets, heat sources, direct sunlight, and excessive dust away
from the unit. Do not push objects of any kind into the system through openings. Do not spill or spray liquid of any kind on or in the system (this may
result in a fire or electric shock). Do not place anything heavy on the unit. To
ensure proper ventilation and proper operation, never cover or block the slots
and openings with a cloth or other material.
7. Disassemble
To avoid harm from the laser beam assembly and to reduce the risk of electric shock, do not attempt to disassemble the cabinet. Contact qualified service personnel if your system is in need of repair.
8. Cleaning Unit
When cleaning, make sure the system is unplugged from power source. Do
not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a cloth lightly dampened
with water for cleaning. Clean the exterior of the system only.

1. Temporarily place the cardboard mounting template in the appropriate mounting location on the floor between driver/passenger seats, with the four hole
end of the template facing the front of your vehicle. Be sure to leave enough
space for the disc tray to fully open. Make sure that you have checked underneath the vehicle and within the vehicle (under the carpet) for obstructions. Mark the mounting hole locations.
2. Drill 6 small 1/8” pilot holes though the marks and verify that the holes are in
the proper locations on the floor. After verifying that the 1/8” pilot holes are in
the proper locations, use the 1/4” drill bit to enlarge the pilot holes.
3. Place the mounting plate on the floor over the 4 holes close to the front of the
vehicle, with the tongue end of the plate facing the rear of the vehicle. Place
4 floor bolts through the mounting plate and into the holes just drilled. Under
the vehicle place 1 sealing washer (rubber side towards vehicle floor) and 1
large fender washer over each of the bolts and attach the nuts. In addition to
the sealing washer it may be desirable to place a small circle of silicon sealer
around the hole under the vehicle before installing the washers and nut. This
will further prevent moisture from getting into the vehicle. Have a second
person inside the vehicle hold the floor bolts securely with a box-end wrench
while the person underneath the vehicle tightens down the nuts securely.
4. Set the console on the mounting plate, with the slot of the console base
pointing to the tongue end of the mounting plate. Push forward to mate the
console base and the floor mounting plate, with the tongue of the mounting
plate projecting into the slot of the console base.
5. Place 2 bolts through the 2 holes in the front base of the console and into the
2 holes through the vertical floor. Under the vehicle place 1 sealing washer
(rubber side towards vehicle floor) and 1 large fender washer over each of the
bolts and attach the nuts. In addition to the sealing washer it may be desirable to place a small circle of silicon sealer around the hole under the vehicle
before installing the washers and nut. This will further prevent moisture from
getting into the vehicle. Have a second person inside the vehicle hold the
bolts securely with a box-end wrench while the person underneath the vehicle tightens down the nuts securely.
