INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on owning a Rosen Entertainment System! Here’s a
list of some things you can do with your system:
•
· Play DVD movies, music CDs, or discs with MP3 audio files.
•
· Play onboard video games.
· Play audio through the vehicle speakers or the wireless headphones
· Use external audio/video inputs from video game consoles,
camcorders, or optional units like a TV tuner or a DVD changer.
· View JPG photo files or playback compatible MPG videos using the
DVD or USB memory slot
Precautions
In order to operate the system, the
vehicle ignition key switch must be
in the ACC or engine ON position.

Use this system only if properly installed by a qualified installer.
If the unit shows any sign of malfunction, turn it off and consult your
dealer immediately. Do not open the unit - there are no serviceable
parts inside.
Do not press directly on the display surface - you may damage
it.
Clean the display surface with a slightly damp, soft cloth using
household glass cleaner. Do not use solvents such as benzene,
thinner, or commercial cleaners.
•
When using portable radios and telephones near the system, picture or sound interference may occur.
If your car was parked in a very cold or very hot place, you may see
a blank screen, distorted picture or the unit may not be able to load
a disc. The system will return to normal after the unit temperature
returns to a normal operating range. This may take more than an
hour depending on the temperature.
If your car battery charge is low or the vehicle battery is old, you
may see a blank screen, distorted picture or the unit may not be
able to load a disc. The system will return to normal after the unit
voltage returns to a normal operating range.
Note: The system’s operating voltage range is
11-16VDC operating voltage. The system operating temperature is 32o to 140o F ( 0o to 60o C).
Use of the system beyond the safe operating
ranges listed, can cause temporary or permanent damage to the unit, and such damage
may not be covered by the manufacturer’s
warranty.
Rosen Entertainment Systems
DISC COMPATIBILITY
Compatible Discs
Incompatible Discs
Note: Not all discs are supported by this system. You may find a disc
that will not play on this system, but works fine on other players. Various manufacturers of discs change technology from time to time which
may create compatibility issues. This is not a probelm with the unit and
is not covered by warranty.
The following disc types are incompatible with the system:
Most DVD and CD-Audio discs are compatible with the AV7500 system.
The unit can also play most CD-Recordable discs containing CD-Audio, MP3 files, and JPEG images - but not all such discs. Since these
discs are usually made on home computers, there is no certification process ensuring that all such discs play on all players.
DVD Regions
When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a “Region number.”
The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number
- for instance, a Region 3 disc won’t play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia
Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea
Region 6: China
·
DVD-ROM/DVD-RAM/DVD+RAM discs.
·
Most DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW discs.
·
Some Photo CDs.
·
CD-ROM data discs.
·
CD-Audio discs made with certain copy protection methods.
·
Any DVD with a different Region number than the unit.
·
Any disc that does not meet DVD Forum standards.
Why the system doesn’t respond the same way to all discs
When a DVD disc is created, the creator has to define how the disc
will operate when loaded into a DVD player. For instance, some discs
begin playing immediately, while other discs only display a menu and
require a menu selection to be made before playback will start.
The DVD standard also allows the maker of a DVD disc to disable
functions at certain times, such as Fast-Forward and Stop (which is
why you can’t skip past the copyright warning screen). If some DVD
feature temporarily isn’t working for you, usually the disc is preventing
the player from performing that function.
Discs that don’t properly load and play
Some CD and DVD discs, especially homemade discs which do not
have all the data needed to properly initialize all DVD players, may not
load and play properly. They may even create a state where the DVD
player will not eject the disc at all. In these cases, use a paper clip to
press the Reset button (this button’s location is shown on page 6).

CHANGING AND ADJUSTING THE DISPLAY
Selecting a display mode: The system’s “widescreen” display has
a 16:9 aspect ratio - wider than a standard television. While many
DVDs provide widescreen video images that fit the screen, standard
broadcast TV and many video games do not.
• To view a widescreen DVD, press the DISPLAY button on the
remote until “WIDE” is displayed on the screen.
•
To watch a fullscreen DVD, the internal game system, or
broadcast television, select “STANDARD.”
Change the Display Adjustments Remote Control Only: The
display has adjustable video settings. To change these settings, press
and hold the DISPLAY button on the remote control to bring up the
following menu:

to change, use the LEFT and RIGHT arrows on the remote or the
front panel to adjust the settings. After you have finished making your
desired changes, press the DISPLAY button on the remote to exit and
save the changes you have made.
To change the value of a setting: Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow buttons. The range is from 0 to 63.

To exit the menu: Press the DISPLAY button to save settings and exit.
Set the brightness level in daytime conditions with plenty of ambient
light. You can use the Day/Night mode button to switch between Day
and Night modes.
Note: The internal DVD player can be configured for either a
16:9 “Wide” image output or a 4:3 “Standard” image output.
Since the unit has a wide screen display, the DVD player should
be configured for “Wide.” For more information, see page 19.
Note: The internal DVD player also has a set of video adjustments, which are separate from the main adjustments.

Rosen Entertainment Systems
CD AUDIO, MP3 AND JPEG PLAYBACK
LISTENING OVER THE CAR SPEAKERS
CD Playback
The system uses a wireless FM Transmitter (FMT) to send audio
through the vehicle’s speakers. To listen over your speakers:
1 Make sure system MUTE is off. Press SPEAKER. “SPEAKER
SOUND ON FM _ _ . _” appears. Select a FM frequency as described below.
When you insert an audio CD (label facing away from you), the
standard CD commands (PLAY, NEXT, etc.) will control the unit. Some
CDs recorded in CD-R or CD-RW mode may not play.
MP3, JPEG and MPEG Playback
When a disc containing MP3, JPEG or MPEG files is inserted, a menu
screen appears. Use the arrow buttons to select a file type and press
enter to play it.
USB Playback
Inserting a USB drive into the available connector will cause DVD playback to stop and open a directory of the USB drive contents.
This may take several minutes depending on the amount of data. Use
the arrow buttons to select a file type and press enter to play it.
2 Turn on the car radio. Tune to the FM frequency displayed on the
screen, such as “FM 88.1.”
3 If no system audio is heard, try changing the FMT frequency and
re-tuning the radio to the new frequency.
To change the FM Transmitter frequency:
Press SPEAKER. “Speaker Sound on FM _ _ . _” will be displayed.
Now use the LEFT and RIGHT buttons to change the frequency.
Select a frequency, re-tune your radio and check for clear sound.
The system saves the frequency you select, and returns to it each time
the system is turned on. You may want to store the FMT frequency as
a preset of your radio for ease of use.
Note: If there seems to be a strong station on the FM Transmitter frequency, and you are hearing a radio station mixed in with
the system audio, change the FM Transmitter frequency. Avoid
frequencies used by local radio stations.
If the words “HEADPHONES ONLY” appear, the internal FMT is
turned off. It can be turned on by pressing the SPEAKER button and
selecting a FM frequency. If the words “SPEAKER SOUND” appear,
an external FM Modulator (FMM) is probably being used. In this case,
the SPEAKER button turns the external FMM on and off. The Rosen
external FMM frequencies are FM 87.7, 87.9, 88.1, 88.3, 88.5, 88.7,
88.9. If you have any questions about your FMM, please contact your
Rosen dealer.

Rosen AV7500 Owner’s Manual
USING THE INCLUDED WIRELESS HEADPHONES
REPLACING HEADPHONE BATTERIES
The system comes with infrared (IR) wireless fold-flat headphones.
These headphones receive a signal from an IR transmitter built into the
unit. Headphones allow rear-seat passengers to listen without using
the vehicle speakers.
The wireless IR headphones require two (2) “AAA” batteries. To
replace the batteries, slide off the battery compartment door on the left
earpiece and insert batteries, as shown. Make certain that the battery
orientation matches the marks inside the battery compartment.
To turn the headphones on and off, push the Power ON/OFF button on
the earpiece. The Power LED on the earpiece indicates when headphone power is on. Power turns off automatically after three minutes of
no audio, in order to preserve battery life.
The headphones have a two-position slide switch labeled “A/B.” When
the switch is in the “A” position, the headphones play audio from the
source designated as “A.” When the switch is in the “B” position, the
headphones play audio from the source designated as “B.”
To adjust the headphone volume, rotate the thumb wheel on the headphones.

Press START on the controller, to begin a game.
While playing, use A and/or B as fire, jump, or other action buttons,
depending on the game.
To return to the game main menu, press RESET on the controller.
USB Port
Aux A/V Input
To use an external game system, a 12VDC to 110VAC power inverter,
available at most electronic retail stores, is often required.
Note: If you want to watch non-widescreen, 4:3 images, press
the DISPLAY button on the remote control until “STANDARD”
is displayed on the screen. This will properly size the image,
instead of stretching the image across the wide screen. In
“STANDARD” mode, you will see black bars on the sides of the
image.
Note: The controller works using infrared “line-of-sight” technology. If the controller is held so that there is not a clear line of sight
to the system, intermittent operation or reset will result.

7 Installing the AV7500 headrests
You will need to install the AV7500 headrests and route the cables through the seat backs. The following
steps will guide you through this process.
Step 1: Check the headrest down tubes in the seat backs for
any obstructions. Normally the down tubes are clear and allow
the AV7500 cables to exit from the bottom of the down tubes.
Step 2: Position the AV7500 headrest so the monitor will be facing the
rear of the vehicle once properly installed. Then drape the cables over
the seat back, being sure that the cables are NOT crossed. Place the
AV7500 safely on the seat cushion (see figure 6).
Step 3: Attach the cable routing tool to a cable. Slowly feed
each cable routing tool through its corresponding down tube until
the ends of the cable routing tool is visible at the bottom of each
seat back. Pull the cable until it extends out the base of the seat
back. Repeat for the second cable.
Fig. 6
Step 4: Remove the cable slack until only ½ inch is showing.
Insert the headrest into the down tubes. This step normally takes
some moderate force, and may be eased by using a very light
lubricant on the posts. Be certain to pull lightly on the cables as
the headrest is inserted to remove excess slack (see figure 7).
Step 5: Once the headrest is fully seated in the down position,
place a small service loop (6”-12”) of cable in the seat back, to
allow the headrest to easily adjust up or down.
Fig. 7
Step 6: Connect the interface cable to the monitor cable,
ensuring that the cables are matched gray-to-gray and blackto-black . Properly route the cables to ensure they are secured,
out of sight and unobstructed by moving parts and passengers.
CAUTION!
Use caution when pulling on the cables as some seats may have sharp edges or
objects in the seat back which could damage the cables. Sometimes it is necessary to
remove or partially remove the seat back covering to properly install the cables.

8 Routing the harnesses and making the wiring connections
It is the installer’s responsibility to ensure that the safety equipment in the vehicle is
NOT adversely affected by installation of this system. Ensure that the routing of the
harnesses does NOT obstruct airbags, SRS or other safety devices.
You will need to route the harnesses and make the power connections to the vehicle. The following steps
will guide you through this process.
Step 1: This system requires a minimum of 12V (+) ACC Switched and Ground (-) to operate. The 12V (+)
ACC Switched source must be capable of supplying a minimum of 7A. These can be found at multiple
points in the vehicle. The Ground (-) should be located at a Factory Chassis ground point when possible.
Step 2: Select a location to mount the junction box for the AV7500 unit. Normally the junction box is best
located under either the driver or passenger seat. Be sure to locate it so that it will not obstruct any moving
parts in the seat or damaged by the feet of passengers.
.
Step 3: Route the power harness to the dash area where you have located the 12V (+) ACC connection
point. Be sure to protect the cable from any potential sharp edges which could damage the harness in the
future. To avoid vibration noise, use tape to secure the harness whenever possible.
Step 4: Route the FMT antenna wire (purple) toward the antenna/tuner. (Be sure to separate it
from the power wires and avoid any power seat modules or other vehicle harnesses as these
may induce noise into the FM transmission.)
Step 5: When connecting the power harness, Rosen recommends soldering all connections. When using
T-Tap or crimp connectors, always ensure the connections are made with the proper gauge connectors.
Failure to make a proper connection will result in a system failure in the future.
Step 6: With ACC off, plug all harnesses into the main interface unit. Note: Plug the main power
harness in last.
9 Initial test, reassembly, and pre-delivery re-test
You will need to fully test the system to ensure it is working and connected to the vehicle properly. The
following steps will guide you through this process.
