Dash DVD not playing on main TV???

I finally got around to putting a DVD in my 3051's Jensen 9726BTC in Dash entertainment/GPS unit.

I was told the video there would display on the main TV in the overhead compartment. It doesn't.

I've tried everything - of course I change the TV source to AV but I've tried them all naturally. I see the DVD content on my in Dash player and the sound in the surround sound speakers (though I don't think the sub woofer is working) but the TV says No Source for anything other than the Antenna (TV) setting.

Is there some trick I'm not getting? I've looked for settings on the in dash player, but find none that switch the playback to the AV cables.

Perhaps this wasn't connected at the factory? Is there some way to get into the back of the in dash Jensen to check/correct this?

While the DVD is playing you should have a button at the bottom of the screen for Rear TFT. Press it. It will bring up a screen of possible inputs to display. Look for one called disc. If you don't see disc then swipe the screen left (meaning press and hold your finger against the screen while dragging your finger left. You should then see the disc input. Press that and you should be in business. Make sure the tv is on AV.

Yeah, I've seen the Rear TFT button. When I press it I see the DVD option. But I also see "Rear TFT" with a red X through it and it says "Rear Off". When I tap Disc it just shows the video on the dash unit. I've tried it both with and without the parking break set. With it set you see the video on the dash unit. Without it set you see a notice to please set the parking brake.

When I tap "Rear Off" I just see the video on the dash unit. Needless to say I've tried them all many times.

Here's a screen shot:

When you press disc and it switches back to dash view that is normal behavior but it should be pumping video through at that point. I wonder if you have a damaged composite cable. I pulled my unit from the dash to ground out the brake wire for DVD in motion othe front screen. I noticed that the factory had taped all the RCA connectors. If you are planning to get into it then you could test with a different composite video cable, otherwise I think you'll need to take it in for warranty. Sorry man... That sucks.

Mine has a damaged composite video cable. When I pull it out of the input in the TV part of it stays in. If I wiggle it around it will work, but definitely needs to be replaced! Maybe yours is the same.

I don't even want to think about how difficult it would be to replace that cable.

I've removed and replaced the cable at the TV a dozen times. I plan to test the TV today and see if there is any issue there. Replacing the TV... easy. Replacing that cable? Very difficult.

How do you remove the dash unit or is that just a head unit and there is some remote box somewhere else?

I was originally going to try to replace the cable, but I think I can buy an rca end and solder it instead. Auto connections are ok.

It wasn't easy. First, the dash trim pulls straight out from the clips. I wasn't able to remove the whole dash piece because I couldn't get it around the steering column. So instead I shifted it enough to remove the screws around the stereo. That was the tricky part. I had to set to both screws from the side and from the front. I should have taken some pictures at the time.
