Concertone - no DVD or CD reading
I have a Wolfpack Toy Hauler that I bought brand new two years ago. A few months after I owned the RV, the Concertone stereo quit reading DVDs and CDs. Well, instead of dragging the thing back to the dealer just to have that worked on I took the easy way out. I just connected an extra DVD player that I already had to he auxiallary connection and I was back in business. I figured I'd wait and have the DVD issue worked on whenever I went back to the dealer for something else and kill two birds with one stone. Last weekend the stereo quit working -- as in no power. I checked and it was a fuse. When I put in the new fuse it tripped immediately. So, I've got a short. Today with volt meter in hand I started the trouble shooting. After about 45 minutes and taking the unit apart, it looked like the monitor was the culprit. I put in a new fuse with the power for the monitor disconnected and the stereo powered up just fine. As soon as I touched the power for the monitor, smoke came out of the unit. Ah Ha! I figured I would have to order a new monitor, but when I took it apart, it was quite evident that a diode on the power circuit board had shorted out. I replaced the diode and and now we're back in business. Excluding time this was about a 59 cent fix. This still doesn't take care of the original problem. of the DVD reader. I figure the laser reader is messed up. What a pain! It's the little things like this that absolutely drive me crazy and leave a very bad taste in my mouth. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
Anybody have these problems?
