Dynavin - problems with CD/DVD - Please help!

I have just purchased and almost finished installing a Dynavin E46 D99+ into a 2005 M3. Ran all the wires, disconnected and connected everything, it starts up, there's sound...just one big problem:

Regardless of what I insert in the DVD/CD unit, it will not read it. The CD icon on the screen does not respond to touching it and when I actually put the CD or DVD in, it sounds like it's doing the initial read and all sound pauses for a bit (coming from a different source such as radio) but then i cannot play whatever is on the disc.

Have I missed anything? Is there a reason for this or is the unit bad? can someone please help out?

I see that occasionally, could be any number of causes though....

Did you take out the shipping screws, can you tell if the disc is going all the way in?

Could be the software was not properly installed, could be physical damage from shipping, could be a bad drive.

Contact your dealer for assistance. (if thats me, email me about it so we can get it sorted out)

Jeff, yes, it was from you. I turned the car on and off 5 more times for various reasons and now it seems to be working. I'll keep an eye on it.

Only one more problem that I found and after that I may be done and ready to close up. None of the buttons are lit and I cannot find a setting to control that...the car being running or not running, headlights being in the auto or on or off position..none of this makes a difference...can you provide any suggestions?

EDIT: I have just read some posts about the orange illumination wire and getting fed. would it be ok to use a wire tap on the orange and red wires?

First off, if you buy a unit from us and you have a problem, just ask us about it! Don't ask a bunch of random people on a forum, you paid for our service, use it!

For the cd player, something might have popped out of place in shipping, if its working now don't worry about it. If you have any future trouble just let me know.


I'm guessing you had oem nav and are using the fakra cable?

If so, there is no illumination wire in your factory plug, its the orange one on the fakra harness, if you follow it to where it plugs in you will see there is no wire on the car side of the plug. You will need to splice the orange wire into a factory dash lighting wire, there is one available in the original head unit plug or the ashtray light is another easy access spot. This is in the FAQ on our website, #3 if I recall.

Yes you can just splice the orange wire to the red in the fakra. It will light the buttons but they won't dim, tap a dash light wire and they will dim....

Jeff.

New user to N6 here... got the N6 ordered a month ago, and finally got it installed here locally in Bellevue WA last week. Purchased the Unit from you, and CNC audodesign (Bellevue, WA) did a fantastic job! They were quite impressed with the unit.

As I have gotten acclimated with the unit and got the os updated from Dynavin, all little issues seemed to get resolved and I am quite happy with it, except.... today, my CD that was inserted, played well, would not eject. Actually it was a DVD, and after watching it, I parked the car and next day I tried to get it out by pressing the eject button and it will not come out. I could hear the unit trying to eject it, but it seemed jammed for some reason, and it will "load"... then "ejecting..." display comes on after I press the eject button.
After several attempts of resetting the unit (pressing source/mode button for 6 seconds)...Nothing. Same problem. In fact it got worse....
Now the CD/DVD will not work at all. the eject button does not respond, and I tried going into CD/DVD tab from menu, and nothing... cannot even get into CD/DVD app.

Please help! I am not sure but I am afraid, did I do something wrong here?

Chris from Bellevue/Medina.

answered your email.....basically it sounds like it got banged up in shipping and the mounting brackets/tabs for the DVD drive got bent a bit, easy to fix.
