Good luck buddy, we have been through 8 concertone ZX600's and without fail they all break within a couple months or a couple times camping, we gave up, we are tired of the merry-go-round, there should be a recall on these units or our money should be refunded, it would only be right.

Yeah, I agree, but we all know that's NOT gonna happen! I have the ZX 600, and when I got my camper home the first day, I was out there playing around with the Concertcrap, and blew the amp, I think. The dealer sent the tech guy out to the house to verify that it was actually bad, I might have pushed the wrong buttons, they said, so after that they ordered me a new one, and came out and installed it for me. It's been 3 years now, and it still works great! I must have gotten the only good one they had! Knock on wood!! Randy

No complaints on my ZX-700's designed performance either.

I would really have preferred a COMPONENT or HDMI output so the DVDs would play in 720p HD. Seems silly to me to have a surround sound DVD player that is limited to composite output. Since the TV in my unit is AC only, I need to run the inverter when dry camping, so adding a small up-converting 1080p DVD player and HDMI cable to the TV was no problem. I have several MP3 custom mix music CDs that I play in the Concertone when we have parties or just want to listen to music.

I threw mine in the garbage last spring and never looked back.

I can't remember for sure, but look on the face by the CD opening.
Look for a hole that is about the diameter of a paper clip.
If there is one, you can straighten out a paper clip and push it into that hole to eject the CD/DVD.
It manually trips the mechanism to eject the disk.
It will look just like the one on your computers CD Drive.
Dont be afraid to push hard.

Concertone is pure garbage.
Forest River should be ashamed of them selves for using this poor quality equipment.

aaaaahhhh - the more we talk the more we find people that actually have Concertones that work, I love it! It may be an uphill battle, but it is one we will continue to wage.


For the rest or you, we will endeavor work with you to find the problem and get ya going!

For any of you out of warranty with the RV manufacturer please contact me directly to discuss our new service/repair program that we are getting ready to launch. I will GLADLY offer to you for WAY LESS than retail AND less than changing brands. This new program will also warranty the new unit for another year.

All the best,
Bob Fields
