Another for the Concertone oddity department
The ZX600 in our Cardinal works great!
Once you get it turned on......here's the situation:
On our second weekend trip with the new rig, the radio would not come on. The red power indicator on the switch was lit, but nothing happened when I pushed it. So I pulled the 15A fuse in the main panel, waited for the light to go out, installed the fuse and it was fine for the balance of the weekend.
Next trip, same issue. Fuse out once, then in, and all is well.
I had to go by the storage lot today prior to a weekend out tomorrow, and thought I'd try it. Here's the odd part--even with the battery disconnect off and removed, the red power light was on. But it wouldn't power up. So I left the disconnect out, pulled and installed the fuse, but it wouldn't work until the battery disconnect was put in. Then pulling and reinstalling the battery disconnect would turn the radio off and on, but that power light never went out.
So why is that? Does it have two power supplies, like a car stereo to store stations and such? If it does, it doesn't work because it doesn't recall the last station.
My belief is that it may be wired in reverse--the switched and steady 'hots' are incorrect. I'll know more after Saturday when I get behind the Concertone and see just how they wired it......stay tuned.....(LOL, tuned)
