2.
Test fit the overhead monitor system on the ceiling of the vehicle, verifying it is not going to
interfere with the safe operation of the vehicle and is physically safe for the driver and passenger(s).
3.
Once the mounting location of the overhead monitor system has been determined, carefully
mark the location with masking tape.
4.
Lower the vehicle's headliner down to see if a roof support beam is available to screw the
mounting bracket to. If a support beam is not available to screw into, use a ¾" piece of plywood
cut to the appropriate size. Attach the plywood to the roof of the vehicle using silicone allowing
adequate drying time before proceeding.
5.
Screw the mounting bracket in the vehicle. DOUBLE CHECK THE LENGTH OF THE SCREWS PRIOR
TO MOUNTING THE BRACKET, TO PRECLUDE PENETRATION OF THE VEHICLE’S ROOF.

Troubleshooting
No Picture
Press the POWER
and SOURCE buttons (or the
button on the remote) to make sure the
monitor is on and the proper input is selected. If there is still no picture press the PICTURE button.
If the DVD menu appears, check the source unit.
If no DVD menu appears, check all fuses and power connections to the model. Inspect the connecting cables for any fraying or breakage.
No Sound
If acquiring signal from another remote device (e.g. DVD player or CD player) ensure the device is
setup correctly.
The DVD player is in pause, slow motion, fast forward, or fast reverse mode. Place player in play
mode.
Picture Rolls
Check that the T.V. type setting is correct for the monitors and DVDs being used. PAL video often
rolls on NTSC monitors.
With a DVD player and a widescreen DVD disc, there are black bars on the screen
Change the TV display mode to "WIDE" in the DVD player's setup menu. After changing this setting,
if there are still black bars, press the MODE button on the remote control.
With a widescreen 16:9 monitor, I have black bars on the screen
Change the TV display mode to "Wide".
