  1. Hi mate, I've purchased the standard induction box aswell as air filter from a breakers last Friday, So it should arrive by Thursday next week if your still interested in the K&N57s for 60GBP it will be ready for despatch on Thursday my PayPal address is
  2. Thanks to this thread I've gotten the network plan sorted out here aswell. Purchased an 8 port NetGear GS308 Gigabit Ethernet switch for the living room to take a single feed from the main router and feed it to everything in the cabinet, And the 5 port NetGear GS305 Gigabit Ethernet switch will connect to the CAT7 feed in the bedroom which runs directly from the main router and feed everything in the room aswell. Also thought id mention that ive Picked up a great deal on some CAT7 one metre long hold plated network cables to go with the Ethernet switch👍 Link:
  3. Hi all, This week ive purchased a few items on eBay UK, two of these items were brand new purchased from two seperate sellers, To my surprise both the items arrived separately yesterday in Amazon packaging 😦 i thought "eh what's going on" Initially I was thinking; the seller's I've purchased from are selling virtual stock from there virtual warehouse in other words; They find an item selling on Amazon then bump the price up by 8 pounds and list it themselves on eBay, when one sells they enterprise by profiting from somthing they have very little to do with 😁 but when both purchases have come from Amazon I'm thinking there may be something going on that I've missed out on hearing so I've post it here to hear from others? Have you had a similar experience? Purchased from here: Recieved in Amazon Package👇 Purchased from here: Recieved in Amazon Package👇
  4. Sounds good mate and guranteed to work since you also had one fitted yourself, I'm not affiliated to promoting any products or suppliers; if you have a link to it cheaper elsewhere it will surly save the fellow member some money, when posting; I just got a link to the item and post it up, I do take time to shop around when purchasing items for myself but i don't have time to shop around for others while advising at the same time cheers.
  5. Thats unfortunate news mate, but we did try all options in being it back to life, but atleast you now know where your going with the installation of replacement, Since you have an aftermarket headunit you may also like to view these guides: Guide to Fitting Aftermarket headunit focus Mk2 & Mk2.5 Click Here Guide To fitting 10" HD Flip Down Monitor Focus Mk2 & Mk2.5 Click Here Custom 10" Sub enclosure & Amp panel Focus Mk2 & Mk2.5Click Here
  6. Ive got a pioneer and i know how options can be in mixed locations at times. for example; you may need to go in to "video settings" to turn the reverse camera option "on or off" IIt may be the case that you need to turn off the camera setting then change format and start it up again. alternatively there may be more options available when the headunis turned off. my equaliser self calibrates using a microphone which mounts to the headrest but you can't activate the process unless the headunit is turned off, seems crazy to turn somthing off in order to activate somthing within it but may be the same on your Sony
  7. Hi mate, Im not too well educated on the multimeter😅 ive used one to calibrate the amplifiers output once but that was following instructions in manual So for my understanding mate; Interrupted would indicate a shorting somewhere correct? And while we're here; are your rear Windows manual or electric? Easier to remove door cards if there electric.
  8. Have you got the headunit manual or try Google for a PDF copy to see how to go about changing to NTSC as most cameras are in that format PAL is rare to be honest.
  9. @Commencal24 one last thing to try; is to go in to the headunit settings and change the format of the reverse camera signal and see if that works, If it doesn't then you can replace the reg plate lights with led units and perhaps purchase the camera at the start of this guide
  10. Thanks for the picture, The yellow cable and black cable will be for powering and earthing the camera, it would be best if these were tapped in to an "ignition live" source making the camera work all the time. iF Its spliced in along with the parking light then the camera only works when your lights are on. Aside from all that then; There will be the yellow RCA cable along with a red cable feeding to the rear of the headunit. The red cable won't be in the boot door along with the rca; it will be spliced in to the reverse positive feed in the boot, and it runs to the rear of the headunit connected to the headunit sensor feed. This is working correctly as the screen automatically changed for you. So for trial purposes connect yellow to red and black to black then put the car in reverse to see if the camera works now that it's showing a light to indicate power. also check the headunit settings to try changing the input signal format between NTSC and PAL because if the headunit is in the wrong one of these two different video signal types it won't display.
  11. That one in the link from armster there does look pretty seamless when installed mate, It's difficult to find descent parts from breakers over here, I'm looking for a set of 16" alloys and most are kerbed to bits or buckled square
  12. The cheap cameras will work but the resolution and clarity won't be as good as others, baring in mind they all take the same amount of effort to install, you find yourself spending a few pounds to get the most value for time spent routing cables. and here's the guide for changing the dash to a double din ready for aftermarket headunit Guide to Fitting Aftermarket headunit focus Mk2 & Mk2.5 Click Here
  13. I'm off to sleep now as I'm in work tomorrow, I should be online tomorrow evening to advise. before removing the headunit ensure you have the user manual in the glovebox because it will have a specific "stereo code" written on the first page or within it somewhere because if you unplug the headunit it will then ask for the code. personally thinking here; since you have located the Fader setting and it's not putting audio to the rear speakers as it should, instead it's making the front louder, I reckon it's the headunit itself which is at fault and nothing to do with the wiring atall. but here's the schematics for the wiring at the rear of the headunit; If you put a cushion on the gear stick area to prevent scratching and take out the stereo from the dash but dont unplug it. turn theignition to power it on, then probe the outputs on the top corner of the cable block; they are the speaker outputs to front and rear;
