I recently installed a ZX-700 in my 09 Flagstaff and tried to use it to play a disk for the first time last week. I did test it when installed, but only for a few seconds to ascertain that it worked.
The disk played for around 15 minutes with the picture deteriorating to the point that it greyed out and then was gone. The unit still produced good sound, but the tv indicated that I had no signal. I have lost all video output as I cannot activate set up either. No signal. The video cable is properly connected.
The sticker is that I can't get in contact with Concertone. I did get one e mail from Bob Fields that simply questioned what I had already sent. Other than that I have not been able to raise anyone. Bob was very helpful in the past and perhaps he is simply temporarily unavailable, but I am really concerned that Concertone has simply gone away. I have read a lot of posts refering to them as Concertjunk. No warm and fuzzies for the most part.
This unit was an out of warranty replacement for the original unit in the camper and I appreciate the break Concertone gave me, but replacing a failed unit with one that perforrmed even worse leaves me with serious doubts regarding the product line.
This leads me to the following question; is there a unit that will replace the Concertone (size wise) or one that will fit the cutout with minimal modification? I have never had so many issues with one camper as I have had with this Flagstaff and the Concertone is just the icing on the cake. I am attempting to replace failed items with similar, but from competitive manufacturers.
In truth I have had more problems with the Flagstaff than my four previous units. Seems if it can go wrong it has, but that not withstanding if anyone out there knows of a suitable replacement for the Concetone I would appreciate your letting me in on the make and model.
I purchased the camper after it had been used one time so it was that, used. Do they have a lemon law for campers? Mine should have been branded "Sunkist". Of course having been used I probably cannot invoke any such law anyway.
