Concertone ZX75

Well I picked up my 2501ss this week and got to loading it up with our gear from the old tent trailer, man I have way more storage than I need, guess I get to buy more stuff. Anyways tried the zx75 out and the dvd won't play, won't even spin the usb port will play my mp4's but wont play sound just video. I thought when i saw it was the zx75 i might get lucky and there would be no issues. I was wrong. IN the slight chance that it is me and not the dvd player. has anybody had similar issues and resolved them?

I have seen many, many posts on Concertone. Trying not to sound too dumb, but is this a brand of audio equipment that is installed in trailers? I think that the brand in my motor home is Executive- not sure though since I haven't looked at it during the winter.

Many problems. Get it replaced with another unit under warranty. Sometimes, you can sweet talk Forest River into an "allowance" of a few hundred bucks for a better unit of your choice.

You are not alone with the DVD problem. I just picked up a new 2701SS last fall. Never used it yet and the DVD player will not turn either. Will be calling the company today for information!!! Let me know how you made out as well.

I have taken it in to get replaced so I will update everyone. The parts guy said that sometimes they forget to take a screw out before it is installed, this keeps the dvd player secured for transport.

Well, the folks at Forest River are replacing the unit. They are sending me a new one and once I get it, I will send them back the broken one. I got my RV in Albany NY from RV Direct. Great company. Saved 10K!!!

Good luck with that!!
I removed my "old one" and sent it back to them
2 times. Both times I had to pay freight from my end.
The one I have now works but there is a hiss all the time.
When I play a music CD it hisses.
When I play a DVD movie it hisses.
When I listen to FM radio it hisses.......

If it quits completely one day I'll gladly replace with either
a CD/DVD car stereo unit by Kenwood or one that's made
for RVs by Jensen.

Thanks for the input KYDAN. I was told by the dealer, RVDIRECT that the postage will be paid by them and not Forest River. I hope the new one works to my pleasing as they WILL get it back if it doesn't work properly. When I get tired of this running around if it happens, I will also get a Jensen. Thanks!!

Mine worked fine. Tried it during the winter and nothing. Wouldn't power up. Disconnected the battery for a few minutes and reconnected and so far so good. It's a shame if it dies as it is a handing unit (when it works). Is there any other uunit out there that has the same features and works!
