I have a 7X75 POS and it won't play DVD's. When I load the DVD in the machine, it makes a loud and prolonged whirrrrring sound. Sounds like a motor is turning a gear to drive the head into the beginning position. OK, I can live with that. Then the DVD plays... for about a minute and then the picture gets herky-jerky and then freezes and then I get a Pre-Stop message (whatever the heck that means) on my monitor. SO, what other brand of multi-media entertainment systems will fit in the same hole? Jensen's AWM970 will NOT fit as it is too wide. Even with some creative cutting, the widest I could get my opening is 8-1/2". Also the current opening is 7" tall and I would like to cover that. Of course if someone knows why my 7X75 is doing what it is doing and how to fix it... maybe I won't subject it to the same fate as the copier in Office Space.

I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was going to blame you.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
The things that come to those that wait will be the scraggly crappy junk left by those that got there first.

Good luck! when you find it let everyone know, concertone is the biggest piece of crap, I have bypassed mine with a small bluray I still use the concertone for my surround sound most of my buttons on the front don't work so we always have to use the remote. why does forest river continue to use them! (concertone)

Popeye

Are they original DVDs or "backups"?
I hate to ask but it does make a difference.
I use an cheap upconverting DVD player and just use the Concertone for the Surround Sound.

It plays my DVD-R backups just fine. To be fair, so does the Concertone but the resolution is composite (pretty bad). With the DVD player I get true HD through an HDMI cable to the TV. The output audio of the TV goes to the Concertone.

Every DVD I own is an original. Also I have no place to put a DVD player that would be convenient to get to, unless I connect it every time I want to watch a DVD and them put the player on my stove. That would kinda suk if we were cooking at the same time. Also, I don't have surround sound. I have 2 speakers inside the trailer, one above the kitchen sink (channel A), and one behind the TV (channel B). Channel C is the two speakers outside.

I have had my Concertone zx600 for about a year. I've had a few wiring issues and I'm completely comfortable working on it. The latest problem I have is that after it's been running for a while the sound with cut in and out and the led screen flashes on and off. Sometimes it is fixed by just turning it off. Sometimes I have to take it out of the cabinet and disconnect the power cord. It's warm out. Do you think it's overheating? Is there a fuse I can check?
Thanks!

There are MANY threads about the overheat problem with these units.
A muffin fan or two is clearly needed to cool this beast. Some very quiet 12 volt models are available form Cyberguys and others.

HEY, GOOD NEWS! I messed up in my measuring and the Jensen AWM970 WILL fit, if I do some enlarging of the hole. Bad news is because the hole will be too big for the Concertone unit to go back in, I'll end up selling the trailer with the Jensen in it and if I get another Rockwood product, I'll have to get another Jensen. Now it's off to find the best deal on a Jensen AWM970.

Maybe I've been lucky but I have had no problems with my concertone. Sounds great and DVD looks great..
