2004 BMW x5 DVD Player Issue in back of vehicle
I am glad to be a part of the bimmerfest forums! I joined and posted this issue in the bimmerforums website, and was waiting for it to be approved so someone could help me. I logged in to their forums today and...STUNNING...I was permanently banned! The reason for it was posted as "None given". WTH???!!!
Anyway, I purchased a 2004 BMW x5 from a dealer in Chicago. Great folks. Vehicle is amazingly clean inside and out. It also has the BMW DVD Entertainment center in it, where the DVD player is in the back wall panel in the cargo area. The dealer emailed me photos and videos of it working perfectly.
It arrived here yesterday. I put a DVD in it the dvd player...and the problem is, as soon as you turn it on the the Alpine splash screen appears, it is scrolling. The best way to explain this is that it looks like a VHS player that needs the tracking adjusted badly.
Can someone help me resolve what is causing this? I cant figure out what could have happened from it working at the dealers, then it is shipped to me and the next day when I get it, the dvd player does not work.
I have attached a photo to show you all what it is doing. When the dealer emailed me the photos of it on, the Alpine screen is blue and the Alpine letters are gold. But, as you can see in the photo, it is scrolling and black and white.
Any help would greatly be appreciated.
Now, was this something that would get me banned from a BMW forum?
Thank for your help.
