problem with ZX600

I have a Concertone ZX600 in my 2009 Rockwood 8313ss. Up until now my only issues with the unit have been minor and not enough to get worked up about. However, on Saturday I went to my rig at the storage lot to do something. I installed the battery, put out the main slide, and attempted to turn on the radio, the "standby" light was on, but the unit would not turn on. I have used the radio like this many times before with no problem. I verified I had 13.1 volts at the battery, the slide and all of the ceiling lights inside worked fine, there was no blown fuse at the breaker, I cycled the breaker for the radio as well as the main breaker. After all of this, still no radio.

I plan to get into this repair this weekend while camping. Before I get started, does anyone have any advice? I don't know how to get the head unit out, but I assume you start bny removing the trim around the perimeter. Help!

Ctrl-alt-delete

Maybe it was still rebooting.

I have no idea how long the reboot process takes. When you go from complete powerdown to "on" maybe it takes a while.

Could have "locked up" too. Try pulling the fuse (or killing the battery) and resetting it.

Mine did the same thing once. After trying everything I could think of, twice, I was ready to pull what hair I have left out. For some reason I thought of taking the batteries out of the remote. I did and the unit starting working normally.
(Am I allowed to use the word normal when referring to the concertone?)
I then placed the same batteries back in the remote and everything was normal.
(Oops, I used the word normal again!)
A couple of months later and it did it again. I tried the same fix but it didn't work this time. My dealer replaced the unit and so far everything is back to normal.
(#%&$^! Sorry, I just can't seem to break the habit of using the word normal in reference to the concertone!!!)

Been there and done that.
I went through this with three different units. All covered under warranty.
I'm afraid that if yours is like mine, it's dead!
To remove the unit, you first have to remove the trim.
There are two slots on the bottom that a flat blade screwdriver will fit into.
Just gently pry the trim off.
Mine had 4 screws that held the unit in place.
Beware, there are 500 Million wires coming off the back of this unit.
(Ok maybe only twenty).

If under warranty then the dealer should handle this for you.
In warranty has expired then I recommend a different unit.

I replaced mine with a "Home Theatre" unit.
(See more about that in Concertone threads)

I can no longer run it on 12V but that is not an issue for us.
Several of the guys here have used the Jensen units and have been very happy with them.

Concertone is pure junk!

Good luck.

Bill

I think I have read that the warranty is one year on these. I am right at 2 years on mine so I may be out of luck.

Yep!
I have seen a few of these on e-bay real cheap but you are only pro-longing the enevitable. Sorry man!

Same story here. I went out to storage last evening, and now it works. Didn't even have to use any "choice words" either. We'll see how it works this weekend.

Jeez! I didn't know the magic words!
You mean I did all this for nothing!
