2018 Expy Max with factory RSE installed. Currently no power to the driver headrest unit (blue power light on top is dark, no power, button does nothing even if i hold). The passenger unit has blue power button lit up but won't show anything on the display, holding the button used to make the touch buttons blink red, but I haven't even been able to get that recently. I have checked the power connections below each seat with a plug and unplug. I have disconnected battery for 5 minutes for a reset. I have checked the fuses below each seat on the wiring harness. I tried to remove the screen to check the power connection at the actual monitor but could not get the locking pins to release so I could tilt the monitor out further. I found the entire wiring harness diagram so I think I understand the system, but I am banging my head against a wall, any thoughts? This is the EVO-5 DVD system. Would really love to get the monitor to hinge down the full 90 degrees, but I can't seem to get the pins to release, any tricks for this?
