Important Notice
Installation of overhead products requires careful planning and preparation. Be extremely careful when working on a vehicle with side curtain air bags. Do not route
wires near any portion of the side curtain air bag assemblies. This includes any anchor points in A, B, C or D pillars of the vehicle. Routing wires in these areas or
running wires by the side curtain air bags can prevent the side curtain air bag from fully deploying which can result in personal injury to vehicle occupants. If you have
any questions regarding wire routing in a vehicle, please contact Audiovox Technical Support at 1-800-225-6074.
When connecting power and ground in a mobile video installation ensure that the ACC wire is fused at the point where it is connected to the vehicle ACC wiring.
Failure to do so can result in damage to the vehicle if a short circuit develops between the vehicle connection point and the mobile video product.
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,

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.

WIRELESS HEADPHONES
The VOD100 includes a built-in infrared transmitter for use with the supplied wireless headphones. The headphone volume is 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 wireless headphones.
SOURCE FEATURE*
AV1
The AV1 input may be connected to a Video Cassette Player (VCP), video game system, or other audio / video devices. To access the AV1 inputs,
turn the VOD100 on and press the S (source) button on the VOD100 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 VOD100 is now ready to play the audio and video
signals from the source connected to AV1 input (optional accessory cable part number 8010730 required).
AUX
The VOD100 will accept an audio / video input through the 3 RCA jacks located on the rear of the unit. The audio / video device could be a
video game system, video camera, or other input device.
AV Out
The VOD100 provides an AV output for optional video monitor(s). This output will provide the AV signals that duplicate the picture/audio being
processed by the VOD100 to an additional monitor or video display. Please see your installer for more information.

— Verify that the remote sensor eye is not obstructed.
— If monitor is set to M1, press M1 button on remote; If monitor is set to M2, press
M2 on remote.
Disc won't play
— Insert a disc with the label side facing up.
— Check the type of disc you put into disc tray. This DVD only plays DVDs, audio CDs
and MP3s.
— Both the unit and the disc are coded by region. If the regional codes don't match,
the disc can't be played. This DVD player is set to Region Number 1.
Play starts, but then stops immediately
— The disc is dirty. Clean it.
— Condensation has formed. Allow player to dry out.
No sound or distorted sound
— Make sure your DVD is connected properly. Make sure all cables are securely
inserted into the appropriate jacks.
— If you are using the 2-channel IR headphones, make sure you turn on the IR
headphone power, make sure the correct channel (A-B) is selected.
— Make sure the Modulator is ON and the proper Frequency has been selected on
the DVD player and car radio.

— 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.
24
SOLUTION
PROBLEM
Not allowed at the moment
— 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.
