    Player was working fine for the last year, but now all of a sudden one screen works and the other doesn't. Driver side screen is dark, but lit but nothing plays on it. The passenger side screen works just fine. Any answers to that one? Please tell me it's asmall fix. We are making our first LONG road trip in two weeks and I need this fixed without having to shell out a bunch of cash
  • I have a used XC90 and the CD player is not working any longer. The navigator screen will not come up either. When trying to use the selector to chose the CD, the CD option is not listed. Pushing the CD button does not work either. When I remove and replace the fuse(37) I hear the CD changer trying to eject, but nothing happens. Can anyone explain why?

    In our 2005 XC90 with DVD entertainment from the factory, the DVD player will only play through the rear speakers by pressing a speaker button on the remote control. The button has a diagram representing a speaker. Just point it at the screen, press the button and the sound should come out of the rear speakers only. The remote also controls the volume.

    Frankly, this setup has always drove us nuts because there is no way to adjust the volume from the front seat. They did build in what I presume is a safety feature that when you put the car into reverse, it mutes the sound.

    I hope this helps!

    We just bought an 06' w/ aftrmarket system with the dvd in boot. Was working then stopped. Thinking it may be a fuse issue, does anyone know which fuse # the aftermarket is usually hooked into? Or has anyone else had this happen with their aftermarket?
  • Hi, my DVD player on my 2006 xc90 will not play any dvd's, it is requesting a password. Does any one know what this is? t is not in the manual and am at lost. Would hate to take it in to the dealership for such a thing. Anyone happen to have the password? Thanks.
  • There is an AUTO SALVAGE or 'JUNKYARD' data base that can be searched for the part BY any salvage yard, AT any salvage yard. You just have to know an AUTO SALVAGE YARD that has a computer & access to the data base, I am pretty sure that 90% of them do now days, but they can check with EVERY SINGLE SALVAGE YARD IN AMERICA. Then you buy it from them or the person with it, via phone or mail. You can talk to the person at the junkyard in person to get the part you want, which is a positive with how everything is run today!!! GOOD LUCK!! Let us know how it goes...
    You can CALL ALL LOCAL PLACES and get them to find
    the part before you go driving all over town

    Hello Peter

    I have lost the DVD controller for our Volvo XC90 DVD system and Volvo say they cannot replace it !!!. Do you know how I could get a universal one working e.g. IR codes required or do you have any other ideas ?.


  • Is there anyone that I can buy a new Volvo RSE from for my 08 XC90? I am happy to do the install myself.

    Hi Carquestions,
    What did you end up doing? We have the same problem. Screen on one side is broken (I accidentally reclined my seat into the back of my daughter's car seat) and got a quote today of $900 to replace just the screen!
    Thinking about biting the bullet.
  • Hi, I am having troubles with the rear boot mounted 10 disc DVD system in my 2003 XC90. An audio specialist has looked at the car and said there is no audio coming out of the DVD player and the screen are locking up after a short time playing. He is suggesting a new system but I suspect there is a way to fix this. Any ideas please?
  • Hi There. Can you still offer advice on Volvo DVD faults?
  • Yes, I have one that I bought for my brother, but his car has since been totaled.
  • Hello

    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?

    Thanks Kyle.
  • Hi Peter,
    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.
    Thanks Martin
  • Biggles2,

    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.

    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

    Hi -
    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?
