WARNINGS
v Do not use any solvents or cleaning materials when cleaning the video system.
v 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.
v Lock the LCD screen in the fully closed position when not in use.
v Before putting on headphones always adjust the volume setting to the lowest position.
v 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.
v Do not put pressure on the screen.
v Caution children to avoid touching or scratching the screen, as it may become dirty or
damaged.
Safety Precaution
For safety reasons, when changing video tapes it is recommended that the vehicle is not in
motion and that you do not allow children to unfasten seatbelts to change tapes or make any
adjustments to the system. System adjustments can be accomplished using the remote
control unit, while seatbelts remain fastened. Enjoy your Audiovox entertainment system but
remember-safety of all passengers remains the number one priority.
Important Notice
It is unlawful in most jurisdictions for a person to drive a motor vehicle which is equipped
with a television viewer or screen that is located in the motor vehicle at any point forward of
the back of the driver’s seat, or that is visible, directly or indirectly, to the driver while operating
the vehicle. In the interest of safety, the VOH704 should never be installed where it will be
visible, directly or indirectly, by the operator of the motor vehicle.

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.

Operation
Remote Sensor
The VOH704 incorporates an Infrared sensor which
relays signals from the remote control to allow the
VOH704 and VCP to be controlled simply by pointing
its remote control at the remote sensor eye. This
provides control of auxiliary equipment such as an
Audiovox Video Cassette Player. The infrared sensor
can relay signals from any manufacturer’s remote
controls to the component connected to the Video 1
and 2 inputs, such as a DVD player. In this case you
must use the remote control supplied with
the DVD player.
Overhead Dome Lights
The lights integrated into the VOH704 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 at all times and
the auto position will allow the lights to turn on and off
with the vehicle’s interior lighting. Do not leave the
vehicle unattended with the dome light switch in the
on position, as this could result in a discharged battery.

HEADPHONE OPERATION
IMPORTANT: To prevent possible ear damage,
Read the following Carefully!
Optional Accessories
Wired Headphone
There are two 1/8” headphone jacks on the VOH704
that can be used with any standard stereo
headphones. The jack, TV EAR, is used to listen to
the video program audio. The audio volume is
controlled by the TV VOLUME up/down buttons. The
jack, RADIO EAR, is used to listen to the FM
broadcast. The audio volume is controlled by the
RADIO VOLUME up/down buttons. Remove the
protective plastic cover to access the jacks.
Remember to replace the cover when the jacks are
not in use.
1. Turn the headphone volume down before turning
on the power. Turn on the headphone power then
increase the headphone volume to a comfortable
level.
2. Before switching between channels A and B,
remove headphones and turn the volume down
because the signal of channel could be louder
than the other.

Wired FM Modulator
Your video system may be equipped with an RF
modulator, that allows you to listen to the VOH704’s
video audio signal by tuning your vehicle’s radio to
the selected frequency, (88.7 or 89.1 - Check with
your installer) and turning on the remote mounted
RF modulator switch. (In most cases this toggle
switch will be located underneath the driver’s side of
the dash, check with your installer for the exact
location.) Whenever the RF modulator is on,
broadcast radio reception of the vehicle’s radio will
be diminished. Setting the remote mounted toggle
switch off will allow normal radio reception.
Video Output
The VOH704 provides a video output for an optional
video monitor(s). (Refer to page 7 of the installation
guide for more details.) This output will provide a
video signal that duplicates the signal displayed by
the VOH704 to an additional monitor or video display.
Please see your installer for more information.
Audiovox Video Cassette Player (Aux Video 1)
In most installations a VCP will be connected to the
“Video 1” input. To view a video cassette, turn the
VOH704 On and press the source button on its control
panel or the TV / Video button on the remote control
until “Video 1” is displayed on the screen. The VCP
may also be operated with the remote or the buttons
on its face. The VOH704 is now ready to play the
audio and video signals from the VCP if it is connected
to the “Video 1” input. Inserting a tape into the VCP
will turn it on and automatically activate the play mode.
If a rewound tape had already been loaded into the
VCP, prior to its activation press play on the VCP or
on the remote control to view the tape. For more
information see the operator’s manual accompanying
your VCP.
Aux Video 2
The second video input may be connected to a DVD
player, video game system, or other audio/video input.
To play the Video 2 source, turn the VOH704 on and
press the source button on the VOH704 or the TV/
Video button on the remote control until “Video 2” is
displayed on the screen. Turn the source component
on with its power button or remote control. The
VOH704 is now ready to play the audio and video
signals from the source connected to video 2 inputs.
