Rear seat entertainment - no power

Hi all,

2008 Flying Spur Speed with the Rear seat entertainment package (monitors in headrests, DVD autochanger in boot & remote/headphones in rear armrest).
It did work but now doesn't!
The remote works as I can see it making changes to the head unit but there is no display on either of the monitors.

Any ideas where to start looking?

Thanks in advance,

Michael

Hi Michael, did you ever get this resolved? I've got some suggestions that might be useful.

Hi there,

No - I never got it resolved. I know it used to work and the remote control is working but the screens in the back stay blank.

OK. I know for a fact there's multiple modules and they all kind of have to work otherwise none of it does.

Have you disconnected and reconnected the battery? That should at least do a full system power down, although sometimes the software itself can require resetting which isn't so easy without various tools such as the VAS rig.

Have you tried inserting and ejecting a disk in the changers behind the two seats? Does this work? That can at least rule out a couple of things.....

Have you taken it into a Bentley dealer at all? Just wondering what their opinion is.

Iíve never seen the RES in one of these. Can you take a picture and post please. Is this a fiber optic system or rca?Just trying to understand the post and knowing a little about av/electronics, from what you stated, my first step would be to see if the DVD player has output. I have a tv mounted in my garage and a small 32 inch laying around. I would start by running a set of rcaís (if this system even uses them) from the DVD player to a monitor. Just my 2cents

Hi mate,

It's way more complicated than that I believe. It's an OEM install that integrates with a remote of such and this controls the screens. Don't think there's any RCA. The dvd units are built into basically disc changers. I've only ever seen it once in an actual vehicle. Testing whether the changers insert/eject discs is a good start though because the power is controlled by CAN i think.
