Need help with Concertone TV

I am totally ignorant when it comes to electronics. I know nothing and understand nothing about stereos, TV,sound systems, etc.

I have '08 Flagstaff 831BHSS. Concertone XZ500 stereo (starting to give trouble) and Concertone TV. The TV will work without having stereo on. Usually just turn TV on without the stereo. TV will not come on now. Checked fuse in converter, not burned. When I pulled the fuse a little red light came on and when I put fuse back in the light went off. Other fuses worked the same. Pulled fuse again and red light did NOT come on??? There seems to be no power at the TV and I have no idea how or tools to check for power at wall outlet. Supposed to be 12volt I guess, because that is printed on the TV.

Anyone able to help me?

Also, if this TV is dead, is it digital? Instructions say nothing. Where do I get a digital TV that will work in this trailer?

Do a search on concertone in this forum Tons of info just by reading all the posts. Least frustrating solution. Buy any brand flat screen LCD tv and use it's tuner to get stations. Hook antena lead directly to your new TV. Any brand will do but only on 120 volts.

TV did not power on. I noticed when I plugged my tailer into the truck that my tail lites & running lites did not come on. I wonder if there is a relating problem? I am home now and plan to take a 120v TV and plug it in. I have DirecTV and also have a converter box for digital so maybe I can figure this out. I wonder if there is a fuse somewhere besides in the converter box that might be blown?

An Idea for you.

My TV has a accessory panel behind it on the wall. I removed it to get at a troubling cable issue and if I remember right, the 12V connector pugs into the back of this panel and then goes through the acessory panel and out to the TV.

What I'm trying to say is that there are connectors on both sides of the panel. One from the 12V source and one that connects to your tv.

You might check there to see if it has come unplugged. Either way, it really a cheezy design.

Hope this was somewhat helpful.
