There is no customer support for the ZX75, only a email to contect them. Thanks

Richard,

fre tech hasn't been active on the forums in a while. While I don't have a concertone I can welcome you to FRF. You may try doing a search on the concertone using our search feature. You might find something.

Again.... WELCOME To FRF!!

I have the concertone zx75 all I have to do is put in the DVD, switch on the TV and change the mode setting to DVD. There is a video out plate below my DVD unit with a RCA connector going to the television. I assume that on the back of the concertone unit there is a video out going to the plate and of course the speaker connections wired speakers. If your unit already wired to a television set?

I have a couple of problems with the Concertone myself. Mainly that the sound quality is poor, this may be more a factor of the speakers than the head unit. I've been on their website and seeing that they have a somewhat for available as an add-on and have considered adding that to my unit. But with all the problems I've heard regarding Concertone I am reluctant to buy any add-ons. I have also looked at the Jensen unit as a replacement but that is $300 and currently my Concertone is functioning. Another problem that I have which may also be solved by purchasing the iPod connector from Concertone is that when I plug my iPod into the sea unit using the standard USB two iPod cable is unable to play or charge the iPod. And play my iPod using the front headphone jack connected directly to the iPod. I currently have a serious Sirius unit connected which plays through the earphone connector.

Thanks to everyone for there reply about the zx75. I didn't know that Forest River owned Concertone, that does explain a lot. The Fifthwheel I purchased in 2009 ( a 30' Wildwood) has given me nothing but problems, I bought it from Lazy Days, and after the sale it was thank you! good bye, Not even a walk thru, I had to learn every thing from trial and error. The latest problem was the bathroom faucett leaked, by the time I found out about the leak, it had soaked the cabinet and the storage area below, I called warranty, and was told I had to tear down and take it back to Lazy Days, 50 miles away, or else I could pay for a moble repair, the warranty would pay for labor and parts. I send them the paid bill and was sent a check for half of the cost of repair, my cabinet is warped and I had to throw away most of the items in storage.

There is a procedure on this thread earlier somewhere.
It has to do with removing power from the unit completely for several minutes. You need to disconnect the battery and shore power to do that. Oh, and never again use the alarm again.

Concertone ZX600 hissing

We have a concertone zx600 in our travel trailer and it has a hissing when playing a cd or dvd. I don't know if it does it with the tv because we have never had a signal (just bought this unit). The radio (even the weather band) does not have the hiss. Any thoughts?

Hum in Sound Sytem

I just purchased a 2010 8314BSS and also notice a noticable hum at low volume settings. We just picked up the unit 4 days ago. Do you have any recomendations as to where to look for a bad ground? Should I start at the unit and trace the gound and check all connections along the way? Hope I can get in behind the unit and the flat screen that is under it.

and as for speakers problems this also pints to a bad Ground
and I do Know this Forestriver do not have refurbished as they don't have any body that can repair the stereo's
so there policy is to replace the stereo system.
I hope you will find this useful

I removed the flat screen Tv and then removed the 4 screws holding the little white accessory box. This left an opening that I could reach through and check the connections.

Between doing this and removing the Concercrap unit I was able to reach all of the connections.
Everyone one of the cable connections were lose and two of them had connectors that were not crimped properly.

While I had this all a part, I replaced every inch of cable I could including the splitter for the bedroom TV.

This cured the Humming & TV static issue we had.

I don't mean to sound so negative but when you pay this much for something it ought to at least work right for a few years.

I went through all of this and finally gave up and replaced the junk with a home DVD/Theatre system.

I will not buy another trailer that has this junk in it.
