That is a great tip, I dont really think that ours is a moisture problem because it will play the cd for the first time perfectly fine, then if you would want to replay the same cd, it wont do anything..I appreciate your help,,I was also reading that the Jensen that we were looking at doesnt have the surround sound,,now I am stuck on that issue, I would take it that if the replacement unit does not have surround sound then we would not be able to use the existing speakers that we currently have?

Concertone ZX800 DVD receiver at Crutchfield.com

Is a great radio and there is one in my future, for sure.
It has the 5.1 surround sound on channel A and full stereo on B and C.
Weather band and 4 aux input plus blue tooth.
A learning remote control.
Many more features including HDMI High Definition.
$700.00 is a bargain for this 12VDC receiver.

Contact Tech Support for help and let them know you are interested in an upgrade if the price is right.

Have to disagree that 700$ is a bargain for this receiver. If you can live with a 120 volt system any brand name mini home theatre system receiver blows it away hands down and for less than 1/2 the cost. Many options out there if one can handle simple wiring hookups.

I did mention 12 volt receiver in there somewhere. Very small fishing hole and the ZX-800 is the Bubba of the pond.

I would have to agree with Herk. For $700 you get a receiver with 3 speaker sets (nice for larger RV's with distant bedrooms and outside speakers), DVD player, a stereo, weather radio, alarm clock, USB connection for iPod and other MP3 media use, Bluetooth connectivity for media and calling, external AV inputs, and SD card reader. All that would be a lot of peripherals to a standard home theater reciever. You would be hard pressed to find that in many large recievers, let alone a small RCA or the likes home theater systems. If you don't have the need for all of this, then sure, the small home recievers are fine, but you pay to play with all the extra features and conveniences.

That's the same as the Genesis GT 3.0 I have in my 2012 Flagstaff.

It's a pretty nice unit.

The USB connection is useless on Apple products. That's my only complaint with this unit, otherwise it's a real gem!

Not sure what you mean. The USB port will charge iPhone, iPod, MP3 players, and Cameras and GPS (equipped with USB cables).

It will play files including MP3 and photos. It will not play an iPod using this port (though it will charge it). Use the AU1 port 3.5mm to connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to play your stored music.

The ZX-800 has a "stick size" limit of 8GB (also applies to SD Cards) and the format MUST be FAT or FAT32. NOTE to Windows users NTFS is not supported, so do not format your sticks or SD Cards to NTFS.

Prior Concertones were limited to 4GB and some even 1GB SD memory cards and sitcks in some early units. All were limited to FAT as well.

If your stick or Card is not working try a smaller capacity one.

The REASON is NTFS does not support "hot swaps" and you need to "eject" the USB stick with the "Eject Media Software" in Windows) rather than just yank it out. Yanking out an NTFS stick can corrupt your data.
FAT and FAT32 does not have that limitation.

I'm hoping I get nearly as many features from my $298 Jensen AWM975 that I'm installing next week.
