I just purchased a 2019 FR3 32DS and also having trouble playing DVD on kitchen TV from the Pioneer head unit in the dash. The DVD will play on the outside TV. I've checked RC cable connections and pulled the head unit from the dash. Everything connected, but still can't get picture in kitchen. Anyone have a suggestion or fix?

I had issues in my 2017 32DS, I tried putting the DVD in the player and I would change the input on the TV to the AV component and would get an error of no video source. After troubleshooting the issue I found that the video cable was plugged into the wrong port on the TV. This was difficult since I am tall and the ports are on the back of the TV pointing down. So I used a flash light to be able to read the labels on the TV.

So check to make sure the cables are plugged into the correct port. And mine has worked perfectly since.

Download the FR3 Entertainment System Diagram 3-7-16 from the FR forum Library.

To see the RCA jacks on the TV, I stick my cell behind it & say 'cheese.'

Do you have to keep the rv engine on to watch the dvd?

Our 2017 FR3 had a radio switch on the center console to turn on the radio while parked. You did not have to have your ignition on.

The RV does not have to be running. I have a Radio switch that will turn the radio on when the engine is not running. As stated in a previous post, I found the video cable to be plugged into the wrong port of the TV. That fixed my issue. Make sure the input on your TV is set to AV.

This might be obvious, but hopefully everyone knows that you need 110v AC (from shore power or generator) for the TV.

I clicked the link to the library but it just goes to the home page. Where is this located?
