DVD Player

Hello,
I have a 2010 Puma 31dbss and have a question about the DVD Player that is built in. I would like to turn off the surround sound and have the sound play through the TV speakers. I have tried just about all the settings and still cant figure this out. Has anyone ran into this problem before?

Not on a Puma, but it probably is the same on others. I assume you have a concertone player? So unless you do some serious rewiring you are out of luck. The TV is pretty much only a monitor in your trailer.

I have a Puma with a concertone and although mine does not have surround, it does have several A/V outputs in the rear of the unit. I wonder if some of the RCA type outputs in the back of your unit might not provide a non surround signal for your tv. Which concertone unit do you have?

In my Sabre,I believe AV1 is TV speakers and AU2 is surround sound through the trailer,which I always use with the dish and listen to sirrus sat radio and a Nascar race once in awhile.

The camper has a ZX700, not sure of the manufacturer. I could not find anything in the manual that stated the manufacturer. Also the different sections of speakers (A,B and C) dont really work, they all work on A.

The zx700 has 3 video outs, and one Line level audio out jacks behind the unit. Make sure these are connected to the AV in on your tv. Then its just a matter of selecting the correct setting on each.

The ZX700 is made by Concertone.

This is most likely a botched wiring job on the speakers.
The ZX700 has 3 different sets of speaker wires and each pair must be
connected to the correct speaker with the correct polarity.
There are probably 30 wires in the rear of your unit and EVERY one
of them needs to be connected correctly and securely.

If you're out of warranty, you can give it a shot yourself or take it to
a decent car stereo shop and let them figure it out.

If you want to tackle it yourself it's not as bad as I make it sound IF you take
them one wire at a time.

If you remove the unit from the cabinet and look at the rear the wires
coming from the ZX are probably marked.
IF that's the case your best bet is to disconnect all the speaker wires
and label them.

How can I do that? you ask--- easy. Take an AA battery and touch a speaker
wire to the ends. Tap or scratch the wire on the battery. The speaker
in question will make a popping or scratching sound. Put masking tape
on the wire and label it as to which speaker is doing the popping.
Mark them all this way. You might need a helper to listen at each speaker
so you know which is which.
Once you've got all the wires marked, you just gotta hook them up to
the ZX700.

Use wire nuts of the correct size and make secure connections so they
won't vibrate loose some day.

Good luck. I did this to my unit and it was pretty much a 1 beer job

YMMV.

Thanks for all the replies, When I have time I will take out the DVD player and check all the wiring.

Here is the manual and wiring diagram for your unit.

You will need to find and connect the line level L/R output (not used in our installation) in the morass of wires behind the unit and using a stereo (L/R - white - red) male to male RCA plug cable (not supplied) connect that line level RCA output to the composite audio inputs on your TV.

If not already connected, you will need a single male RCA to male RCA plug (yellow) cable to connect the composite video output from the ZX-700 to the composite video input on your TV.
Hope this helps.
