hi there pete were is the answer?i already ask the question
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
A fuzzy black and white image may be caused by a bad cable connection if you have correctly set up the new stereo.Check all connections and let me know if there is any improvement?

Hi there Pete the guy who install the stereo told me that the new stereo is set on pal as a default from pioneer were the cars screen (the car comes from the Japanese domestic market equipped with everything)but everything is in NTC.he told me it is a mater of finding how to set up the new head unit in order to have both screens working at the same time.he told me also that only kenwood does automatic. Think he was full of looking in the settings of the new head unit pioneer gives the option to change from pal to anything but at the moment and because I done a factory reset the factory screen doesn't play at all and I have lost my steering wheel controls as there anything you can do to help Pete I gave you as much detail as I could.take you time as i need to leave for work .kind regards ***** ***** chris
