Are you trying to play an audio-only device? Like an mp3 player hooked to the audio RCA jacks? I tried that and it doesn't work for my 2003 Venture. I found on another site a guy who said that it needs an active video input to turn on the aux inputs.
Here's what he said:
"I need an input to the, "Video In" jack on the factory-installed dvd player in my 2004 Chevrolet Venture mini van that will result in switching from playing disks to the auxiliary audio inputs.
I want to play my mp3 player thru the auxiliary audio inputs of the dvd player.
-- If I connect the, "Line Out" from my mp3 player to the audio phono input jacks on the dvd player and play the mp3 player, no sound sound is heard.
-- If I connect one end of a cable to the video phono input of the dvd player with the other end open, there is still no sound.
-- If I connect the video out from my camcorder to the the video in on the dvd player, there is still no sound.
-- If I now turn my camcorder on, there is still no sound.
-- If I now press, "Play" on my camcorder, the (mp3 player) sound plays just fine thru the vehicle's speakers."
If anyone knows a way to play audio only through the DVD player aux input, please do tell!

Hi, thank you for the info...
Very interesting, I'll try experimenting with that and get back to you with the results.
I thought I tried that before with connecting an Atari video game unit and didn't get video or audio; but I'll try with my video camera and duplicate what that guy encountered.
#16 of 35 Troubleshooting DVD issue in 2002 Venture WB Edition
Oct 22, 2008 (8:46 am)
We purchased a used 2002 Chevy Venture WB Edition. While testing the features we noticed an issue with the DVD. We can hear sound, but there's no picture. Does anyone have any tips on troubleshooting this? Is there a trick to gettting the picture to appear. The owner's manual doesn't say. Also, ours did not come with the wireless remote and headphones. Does anyone know a good place to purchase these besides the dealer? We appreciate any advice. Thanks.

I've got an '03 Venture with the same problem: audio is fine but not video to the monitor. Did you ever figure it out?
#18 of 35 Aftermarker Stereo in 2003 Venture
Jan 06, 2009 (11:36 am)
I have an '03 Venture with factory stereo and DVD system.
I recently had Best Buy put in a pioneer stereo with MP3, and remove the factory stereo. They informed me I'd lose the DVD. My kids are older so it didn't matter.
The stereo, (plus $200 in harness and accessories) went in fine.
My problem is this. I have an overhead console for the rear passengers to plug headphones into, and most importantly control their AC/Heat/Fan. This console no longer works. Unless someone here knows how to make it work, I have no option but to have the stereo removed.
Does anyone know anything about this? GM dealership is useless, and Best Buy doesn't know.

Sorry, I never did resolve the issue. I tried a cleaner CD for the drive, took out the drive to check the connections and took down the overhead console to check the monitor connections. Everything looks fine. No luck. I'll post a reply if I figure it out. Please let me know if you have any success. Thanks.

I have a '03 Venture with factory installed stereo. There is a CD stuck in the player. Does anyone know how to get it out? Is there someplace to put a jeweler's screwdriver, or a way to open it up?

I encountered the same problem. What i discovered was you need a video input source (which mp3 players do not have) to activate the rca inputs. So,here is my fix for this. I have a small hand held video game that plugs into the rca jacks. I plug that in and get it running then i unplug it from the rca jacks and plug my mp3 rca cables in and wha la it works. By plugging in the video game you get the video input you need to activate the rca jacks. The only time you need to do it again is if the rca jacks from mp3 gets unplugged or a dvd is watched. Hope this helps

Hi all, great site! OK... so minimal problems so far, but sound only through DVD and no picture, LED above DVD player reads " Disabled". Nothing in manual or online, any help? Thanks!
