DVD will not play on new Forest River
We bought a Forest River Cedar Creek 2016 5th wheel and have never been able to get the DVD to play. The dealer here in town had not been able to get it to play either and even tried unit on a different TV. The DVD player was returned twice saying it is not the DVD player.

As we bought our rig at a location 1200 miles from here, our local dealer is less than willing to help very much and is VERY slow to respond and schedule maintenance.

Any ideas that we can try ourselves?:crying:

I can't help but others might.
You say it's a 2016 Forest River 5th wheel. It might be helpful to electronics experts here if you told them which line of Forest River - Wildcat, Sabre, Cardinal, Cedar Creek.

DVD issue
It is a 2016 Cedar Creek 5th Wheel and the DVD player is a Jensen, but I have forgotten the documentation at the RV so I am not sure of the exact model.

(thanks for comments)

Is the DVD player accepting the DVD?

Is the DVD running?

Are the video and sound cables hooked up to the player and TV correctly?

Is the TV set to the correct source by the remote? Try them all.

Good Luck, 17Racer

Have you checked the fuse?
Sorry if it seems like dumb question, but same happened to me. They have a fuse on the back of player.

Had the same problem. Just lay the tv on a towel and hook it up correctly

Pull the unit out and run a new set of cables/hdmi to tv and see if it will play then. If it does, it's in your rig's cables. They may not be connected behind wall at tv. Have you tried different DVDs (I suspect you have, but just in case)?

This may sound dumb but in our Georgetown the DVD goes into the dash unit labor down. Completely different that anything we've ever used in the past
