You need to check the plug behind the DVD Unit:

There is a TSB on this exact problem:

SOURCE:
Honda Service News December 2004

TITLE:
No DVD Sound From the Wireless Headphones

APPLIES TO:
2005 Odyssey EX-L or Touring model

SERVICE TIP:
If the digital audio 2P connector from the DVD player unit to the audio unit is loose, or it has an open or a short, you'll wind up with this situation:

- You can't hear any DVD sound through the wireless headphones, yet it comes out through the speakers OK.

- You can hear the radio through the wireless headphones.

- The RES display works normally.

To fix this problem, make any needed repairs, and make sure the connector is properly plugged into the audio unit.

The wires were checked for any loose wires and shorts but I will check again. I know that when we were at the dealership it worked once but they could not get it to work again. They kept pressing buttons and they got it to work. I am unsure of how to use the controls on the dashboard to make sure the sound is working on the DVD. I can get the sound for the radio and the CD but the DVD seems to be different. Is there a certain button that has to be pushed.

Try:

Turn the rear entertainment system ON.
After the main power switch "VOL PUSH PWR" is turned ON, push "REAR PWR" switch to turn the rear system ON. To turn the rear system OFF, push "REAR PWR", and to turn the whole system OFF, push "VOL PUSH PWR".

Thank you very much. I just went outside and I turned the car on, then turned on the main power switch and then the rear power switch and then it worked. THANK YOU, XXXXX XXXXX THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
do you why this is the case? Why do you have to do it this way and why did Honda not tell us this when we brought it in there and then they could not get it to work again. Do you know anythign about the sudden stopping of the headphones after 30 minutes of playing a DVD, I read that a lot of Honda Odyssey customers have had this problem?
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 6 years ago.

Be sure that someone isn't inadvertantly hitting the Switch or stopping the DVD.
Also, be sure the Batteries for the Headphones are Good. Some will shut off if there isn't a signal after 30 seconds.
They are having different problems with the DVD, but no Recall or Total Fix.
