My name is Kyle and I am new to this site.
Hi, I have just brought a 2004 Volvo xc90 and I have a problem with the DVD player. It is a genuine Volvo DVD player, I know this because it says on it “Volvo for life". It also says “10 disc DVD/MP3/CD changer”. I have put 10 DVD’s in it, and changed the battery in the remote I know that works because I have tested it. There are 2 screens in the back of the passenger and drivers headrests for the row behind to watch the DVD’s. The multi-changer 'loads' but nothing happens on the screens. I have tried “video 1” and “video 2” but they both say “NO SIGNAL” and that stays on the screens. Does it have to be on a certain frequency to work? I read that the quick start up guide says if 'No Signal' then 'No Power to DVD' but the disc loads so there is power. I don’t know wheatear the disc spins. I really don’t know what the problem could be. Can you help me because I am puzzled I don’t know what else to do?

I appear to have the same problem as several other people, since I purchased the car both screens have displayed the no signal message. Everything seems to have power and be working correctly, which makes me think I am not pressing the right buttons. As you have probably guessed I do not have an instruction manual. Any advice would be gratefully received.

Were you able to contact Peter? I am looking for a remote for my XC90 asap. I have the one from Sweden with the DVD player in the console. Please let me know at your earliest convenience.
#54 of 58 2007 - XC90 - Headrest DVD Installation
Dec 21, 2008 (2:45 pm)
I've just purchased the headrest DVD system and am getting ready to install them but I'm unclear as to how to get power to them. I was told that there is a plug under the driver seat but I've been unable to locate it. Does anyone have experience installing these units? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I am looking to purchase the same system did you ever figure out where the power source is, any tips on the install?

I had a local car audio company install it. Prior to installation I explained to them what had been communicated to me, that the power source was under the driver seat. When I picked up the car a few hours later, they told me that it wasn't an easy install at all and that the power source was NOT under the driver seat. Not sure where they are pulling the power from. All I know, is that the unit is not a quiet one. As the actual DVD is inserted into each headrest, as you drive down the road, you can hear it spinning. Really annoying but the convenience outweighs the annoyance. I paid $120 for the install. Hope this helps.

Hi. We purchased a volvo authentic dvd headrest system for our 2007 xc90. Did you install these by yourself and if so where was the power source. We have them installed we just can not figure out where the power source is. Thanks
#58 of 58 Replacement Headrest

I am negotiating the purchase of a 2009 XC90. One of the DVD monitors on the headrest is dead. The one on the left works. Is there a good place to buy a single DVD headrest replacement?
