#206 of 233 DVD player not working/ejecting properly
Jul 28, 2010 (5:44 pm)
My 2008 Sienna with factory installed entertainment system has malfunctioned, and I'm looking for some help. I tried to eject the disc, and it made an odd whirring sound, and only partially ejected the disc. Enough that I could pull it out, but there was resistance, it didnt come out easily. I turned off the car, then turned it back on, put the disc in, got a loud whirring sound, like it was trying to spin, but no movie playing. When I tried to eject it, it did the same thing, a partial ejection.
The unit has malfunctioned once before. The dealer couldnt' find anything wrong with it, but said they were able to "reboot" it and it started to work again. That was ~4 months ago, and it's been working fine since. I don't know what they did to reboot it, but would like to try it and see if it helps - can anybody give me any clues as to how to do that?
Thanks for the help, I'm in a bit of a pinch - we're leaving in 4 days on a 2000 mile care trip with 2 small kids and I REALLY don't want to attempt it without a DVD player to occupy them. Thanks!!!

Circuit City installed it a little before they went bankrupt.
Not sure about the model but it's a 12.1" LCD screen. I bet it's been replaced, 3+ years later, with widescreen models.

I think the stock speakers sound terrific
#209 of 233 After Market GPS for 2011/12 Sienna XLE
Oct 23, 2011 (2:42 pm)
What are the best after market GPS options for the 2011/12 XLE (without NAV DVD).
Will the aftermarket have DVD too?
Can it integrate well with the inbuilt XLE bluetooth, rear camera?

I went with a stand-alone Magellan unit, then added a backup cam as well. I fabricated a mount so that there are no suction cups, too.
Here's a video of mine:
That whole setup will cost you about $400 or so, but it is not integrated, i.e. the stereo does not mute when directions are being given.

We just bought a 2012 Toyota Sienna XLE and was wondering if you have tried to connect the XBOX 360 to the RCA Jacks and AC outlet as well. I did buy the adapter since it has no grounding plug but I purchased a KIll A Watt Electric usage Monitor and it reads 150 watts to start up the Xbox and then runs at 134-136 Watts continuosly. I'm afraid to hook it up since it might trip the fuses at which point I'll have to fix that and I don't want to mess with a new van just yet. Has it worked for you.

Isn't the 360 HD? I don't think the screen has the resolution for that.
Try a low-def Wii.

I plan to do the same. Were you successful? Any tip/advice for me?

It will work as long as you do not plug anything into the AC outlet in the back of the van. I believe the two AC outlets run off the same fuse so that means you have up to 200 watts of power available. The Xbox runs on 135 watts +/- 2 watts. And if you have an older Xbox you can use your component cables but if you have a newer Xbox that carries the video and audio using an HDMI you will need to buy a converter that will input HDMI and carry out Component or RCA Cables.
