Need help with Jensen stereo

I CANNOT figure out how to use the Jensen in our Silverback 5th wheel. If I put a music cd in, it will try to load as if a movie cd then comes up with 'reading error'. I see a panel in the left side that has all kinds of available programs to use, i.e. cd, dvr, and a bunch of others but the only one lit up is LD or LG?.... I can't figure out how to change that option to the CD option or DVD option. Can anyone help??
I'm ready to toss it out....LOL

Did you not get a Jensen manual with your trailer?
get the make and model of your Jensen, then do a google search for owners manual.
Even though you gave the model of your trailer, there could be a bunch of different models of sound systems installed.

The model number is JWM70A and I did a search for the manual. None found. The only info we got was a 'quick reference guide' which is literality no help. I'll try You Tube and hope for the best.

Jensen radio difficulties

I have a Jensen radio/gps in my 2016 Sunseeker MBS 2400W. I hate it! Way too complex with way too many features. Designed by a squirrely nerd engineer on Steriods? Iím going to rip it out and replace it as soon as I have the money. Forest River should be embarrassed to supply junk like this! Iím embarrassed to share my last name with Jensen Electronics. It ainít my fault!

Replacement

When my wife, umm, closed the slide with the door open, I just went to eBay and bought a simple unit that does everything you want it to do, and a lot cheaper.

The Jensen unit we had and I mean had is long gone. Retrofit a unit that is easier to use and has the same features. I'm not near our unit now so I can't remember the name - maybe Samsung??

I'm with those who replaced their Jensen. It is a piece of crap and I still have difficulty understanding why Forest River continues to install them.

Because many other RV manufacturers install Jensen units, not just FR. Until Furrion came along, Jensen was probably the most common entertainment unit in the RV Industry.

If you think Jensen is a piece of Crap, you are lucky you didn't get a Furion....More than a piece of crap..It is like whale **** and that is at the bottom of the ocean...

Thanks, everyone for the input. I finally sent an email to FR and surprisingly got a response the next day. She (Kathy) sent me a link to download the manual so I printed it out and will try to figure out what to do. Pray for me... LOL ... IF that doesn't work, I'll be getting another one with fewer buttons and dials... I just HAVE to have music and it's been driving me crazy without it!
