Important Notice
An LCD panel and/or video monitor may be installed in a motor vehicle and visible to the driver if the LCD panel or video monitor is used
for vehicle information, system control, rear or side observation or navigation. If the LCD panel or video monitor is used for television
reception, video or DVD play, the LCD panel or video monitor must be installed so that these features will only function when the vehicle
is in “park” or when the vehicle’s parking brake is applied.
An LCD panel or video monitor used for television reception, video or DVD play that operates when the vehicle is in gear or when the
parking brake is not applied must be installed to the rear of the driver’s seat where it will not be visible, directly or indirectly, to the operator
of the motor vehicle.
Warnings
• Do not use any solvents or cleaning materials when cleaning the video monitor.
• Do not use any abrasive cleaners, they may scratch the screen.
• Use only a lightly dampened lint free cloth to wipe the screen if it is dirty.
• Lock the LCD screen in the fully closed position when not in use.
• Before putting on headphones always adjust the volume setting to the lowest position.
• Remember to leave the dome light switch in the off or auto positions when the vehicle is unattended, as the dome lights, if left on, can drain
the vehicle’s battery.
• Do not put pressure on the screen.
• Caution children to avoid touching or scratching the screen, as it may become dirty or damaged.
Television Reception
This entertainment system is designed primarily for viewing prerecorded movies or playing video games. Television reception in a moving
vehicle will be limited and in some areas will not be possible due to weak and variable signal strength. Television viewing in a stationary
vehicle will result in an improvement, but may still be marginal due to signal strength. The quality of the picture will not be consistent with
home TV reception. Reception may be affected by weather and distance from TV station. A weak signal may cause the picture to roll, be
snowy, or cause some color loss.

OVERHEAD DOME LIGHTS
The Dome Lights integrated into the VOD285 are controlled by a three position slide switch. Sliding the switch to the ON position will turn
the lights ON. The OFF position will prevent the lights from turning ON with the vehicle’s interior lighting, and the auto position will allow the
lights to turn ON and OFF with the vehicle’s interior lighting. Refer to the installation Guide for wire connections. Do not leave the vehicle
unattended with the dome light switch in the ON position, as this could result in a discharged battery.
REMOTE SENSOR
The VOD285 incorporates two infrared remote sensors which relay signals from the remote control to allow the unit to be controlled simply
by pointing its remote control at the remote sensor. This provides control of auxiliary equipment such as a Video Cassette Player. The infrared
sensor can relay signals from most manufacturer’s remote control to its respective component connected to the AV1 input. In this case
you must use the remote control supplied with the component.
OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES
WIRELESS HEADPHONES
The VOD285 includes a built-in infrared transmitter for use with Audiovox wireless headphones (Part Number IR2CHS). The volume
can then be adjusted using the controls on each headset. Any number of wireless headphones may be used but they must be used within
a line of sight from the transmitter, as infrared transmissions, like visible light travel only in a straight line. See the documentation
accompanying your Audiovox wireless headphones.
WIRED HEADPHONES
There are two 1/8” headphone jacks on the VOD285 that can be used with any standard wired stereo headphones with1/8” plugs. These
jacks are controlled by the volume up/down buttons on the VOD285 remote control.
22
SOURCE FEATURE

The video input may be connected to a Video Cassette Player (VCP), video game system, or other audio / video devices. To access the
A/V inputs, turn the VOD285 on and press the source button on the VOD285 or the Source button on the remote control until "AV1" is
displayed on the screen. Turn the video source component on with its power button or remote control. The VOD285 is now ready to play
the audio and video signals from the source connected to AV1 input.
AUX / Game A/V Input (Shared Input)
The VOD285 will accept an audio / video input through the RCA jacks and the Game Controller Game Port located on the rear of the unit.
The audio / video device could be a video game system, video camera, or other input device.
Note: If the Game Controller is plugged in and an AUX source is plugged in to the AUX input, the AUX input will override the Game
Controller. To use the Game Controller, unplug the AUX input.
AV2 or TV (Optional)
The video input may be connected to a Video Cassette Player (VCP), Video game system, on other audio / video device. To access the
A/V inputs, turn the VOD285 on and press the source button on the VOD285 or the source button on the remote control until AV2 is displayed
on the screen.
Note: If the optional TV tuner (PODTVT) is installed, the AV2 input becomes inactive.
Video Out
The VOD285 provides a video output for optional video monitor(s). This output will provide a video signal that duplicates the signal displayed
by the VOD285 to an additional monitor or video display. Please see your installer for more information.
Note: The video output will display the signal from Monitor System 1.

— Make sure your DVD is connected properly. Make sure all cables are securely
inserted into the appropriate jacks.
— If you are using the IR headphones, make sure you turn on the IR headphone
power.
— Make sure the Modulator is ON and the proper Frequency has been selected.
Can’t advance through a movie
— You can’t advance through the opening credits and warning information that
appears at the beginning of movies because the disc is programmed to prohibit that
action.

SOLUTION
PROBLEM
The icon ( x) appears on screen
— The feature or action cannot be completed at this time because:
1. The disc’s software restricts it.
2. The disc’s software doesn’t support the feature (e.g., angles)
3. The feature is not available at the moment.
4. You’ve requested a title or chapter number that is out of range.
Picture is distorted
— The disc might be damaged. Try another disc.
— It is normal for some distortion to appear during forward or reverse scan.
No forward or reverse scan
— Some discs have sections that prohibit rapid scanning or title and chapter skip.
— If you try to skip through the warning information and credits at the beginning of a
movie, you won’t be able to. This part of the movie is often programmed to prohibit
skipping through it.

This Warranty does not apply to any product or part thereof which, in the opinion of the Company, has suffered or been damaged through alteration,
improper installation, mishandling, misuse, neglect, accident, or by removal or defacement of the factory serial number/bar code label(s). THE
EXTENT OF THE COMPANY'S LIABILITY UNDER THIS WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT PROVIDED ABOVE AND,
IN NO EVENT, SHALL THE COMPANY'S LIABILITY EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE PAID BY PURCHASER FOR THE PRODUCT.

MERCHANTABILITY, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE DURATION OF THIS WRITTEN WARRANTY. ANY ACTION FOR BREACH OF ANY
WARRANTY HEREUNDER INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY MUST BE BROUGHT WITHIN A PERIOD OF

INCIDENTAL DAMAGES FOR BREACH OF THIS OR ANY OTHER WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHATSOEVER. No person or
representative is authorized to assume for the Company any liability other than expressed herein in connection with the sale of this product.
