RE: Jensen AWM975 - why does DVD not work?

It doesn't work BECAUSE it is a JENSEN.. You took the words right out of my mouth! Maybe you could sell it for a few bucks on eBay or CL with a disclaimer.

RE: Jensen AWM975 - why does DVD not work?

Mine did that and I removed the unit, removed the top cover and used canned air to blow off the laser. Reinstalled and working great. Sometimes blowing off the laser will work, we used to do that with computers in the old cd-rom days. Worth a try. If not, replace the Jensen bottom-feeder with a quality name brand unit.

RE: Need Help w an Entertainment & WiFi System Setup

Blu-Ray in place of the DVD, plays both media, and in doing so, you won't need a Smart TV unless you have other needs beyond streaming. Make sure to get a TV with a functioning USB connection (not just a service port). by doing so, you can connect your camera, Ipod, & other devices with the right adapter cables to the TV & view your photo's on screen. Don't go cheap on the TV, get a mid to high end Sony or Samsung. Already had the Blue Ray technology in mind thanks to someone else suggesting it. Great, best way to go. We will want our tablet and/or laptop to connect to the TV to use as a monitor. Would that be considered "streaming"? No, streaming means using Hulu, Amazon, Netflix etc. For your tablet, laptop, just be sure the TV has the connections for those devices. Many do. I don't understand what you mean by a "functioning USB port vs. just a service port"? What's the difference? I know a 3.0 is preferred for speed. Some TV's have a USB port for service only, meaning software updates. Many sets have a USB that can connect to a Camera, Ipod, etc. View your photo's on screen as mentioned. Any brand names for modules that people have used that are RV friendly? I've come across the Jenson brand and it seems to be well regarded. Get any TV you want with the connections as indicated above, Sony, Samsung, Vizio etc. Jensen's are expensive & not needed. Use an inverter if you want to connect to the 12 volt system or plug to coach outlet when on shore power.

RE: Jensen AWM975 - why does DVD not work?

It doesn't work BECAUSE it is a JENSEN.. Cheapest import junk you can get, rip it out, throw it down on concrete as hard as you can, then take a 20lb sledge and beat it into a pulp, then stomp on the remains then sweep it up and place into the nearest trash receptacle and don't look back. Jensen name simply gets stuck on any cheaply built stuff with no real regard for quality. Buy a QUALITY name brand of a car stereo like Pioneer, JVC, Clarion with a DVD player. You will also need to buy a composite to HDMI scaler if you insist on using the TVs HDMI input. Alternately buy a car stereo with CD and a separate home DVD or BluRay player for the TV work.

Jensen AWM975 - why does DVD not work?

Hello all, newbie here: We purchased a Jensen AWM975 a few months back and finally got around to install it a couple of months ago. What do they say about Murphy's law? Oh yes, wait around until the return policy expires and what do you think happened? You got it, we have a problem with it. I hope one of you specialists may have come across this issue: we installed it as per the manual and the DVD player does not run at all. The screen flashes "loading", but nothing happens. We tried troubleshooting with HDMI and regular video/audio cables, and tried to search online for an answer, but no dice. We even checked for extra packaging screws that may be blocking the player, but we seemed to have removed them all. Everything else seems to run as it should. Help?

RE: Non-subscription DVR?

About the only option for recording Dish satellite will be the Magnavox DVR and record the composite video (yellow RCA connector) out from the sat receiver. You will not be able to record the HDMI output because that will be copy protected. The Dish ViP211Z receiver only has HDMI and composite outputs and your TV has no HDMI input so you will only be able to watch standard def satellite on the TV. The Jensen JE1907 and the Magnavox DVR have ATSC tuners so you don't need a separate OTA converter box. Your best option would be to upgrade to a Dish DVR with local TV channels.

RE: Non-subscription DVR?

No DVR yet as that's what I'm considering. TV is Jensen JE1907 OTA tuner is Venturer STB7766G1 Dish Rcvr is ViP211Z

TV / DVD Player Question

So, the new RV has a 39" Furrion LED HDTV ... and below that is a Jensen JRV212T player that looks like it does about everything. We put a DVD into the Jensen, and it started playing, with the movie audio coming out of the speakers ... but, it would not play on the TV. I pushed the 'source' button and it has the following choices: TV AV Component HDMI 1 HDMI 2 HDMI 3 USB No matter which one I selected, it said no signal. I can see on the side of the TV that there are no HDMI cables plugged into any of those. I can barely see the back of the TV (it comes up from the kitchen counter) but I can see that there are various video cables hooked in back there. I pushed on all of them, and they are in tight. I did not see any USB cable connected. The setup: the TV comes up out of the counter. The stereo/DVD player is mounted right below the counter, and the fireplace is below that. There is no access door outside of the RV behind all of this. So, I am guessing we might have to pull out the fireplace to access the cords for the TV and stereo? Any ideas or thoughts? Thanks!

RE: 12v TV/monitor.. What your using please.. No inverters

My 2012 Timber Ridge came with a 32inch Jensen 12vdc television that has RCA input, HDMI, and VGA. It's connected to a Jensen surround sound system with DVD player that again runs off the batteries and seems to be fairly power efficient. As others have mentioned, you can walk through sams club, Costco, best buy or whatever and look to see if the tv is powered by a wall wart. If it is, the power input is more than likely capable of being run directly off the battery, you just need to make up a power cable with the right connector on the end.

RE: 12v TV/monitor.. What your using please.. No inverters

Its not that I don't have a inverter.. I do in the camper. But I don't, in my Cummins E350 and need entertainment for my passengers. Why didn't you say that in the first post Like I already said there are a bazillion automotive car entertainment LCD displays out there in multiple sizes and prices, the have a/v inputs so they work with game machines and portable DVD players No pc or TV I use a 7" flip down display as my backup rearview monitor Look at Amazon or frys electronics I didn't say that because I don't want to use my inverter. And like I said. I'm looking for a monitor which takes input from a PC not just dvd's. multi media monitor? Just bought this 32" Insignia from Best Buy for 169. It has the brick transformer. I had a 12 volt cig lighter plug and it works perfectly on 12 v and 110 when I have it. Has all the plugs on the back for anything you want to hook up. It plugs into my Jensen system also to play DVDs. Perfect hd picture ota. Thanks! that's great to know the brand your happy with at least.. Have you tried it hdmi to hdmi on a PC?

Jensen MP5000 DVD Player

We purchased a travel trailer with a Jensen MP5000 DVD/CD/Radio unit. This week-end we tried to play our first DVD in the camper and we could hear the DVD, but could not get the picture. We printed the manual and tried to follow the instructions. Can someone tell me what channel my TV should be on? We tried several different ones trying to get it to work. Thanks!

RE: CEC capability of Jensen components

I have a Jensen AWM975 audio/DVD and a Jensen JE1911 TV in my Arctic Fox. Both manuals allude to the possibility of connecting them by CEC and using one remote to control them both. Of course, there are no instructions. Can anyone tell me how to do this? CEC will be need to be turned on for both devices, so go into the menus and find the option to enable. The devices will need to be connected by an HDMI cable, with a spec level of 1.3 or better. (Look for cables claiming to support 3D) After all of this, CEC will let you use the play / stop / pause (etc) buttons on your TV remote to control the DVD player. It should also turn your TV on and select the correct input automatically when you turn on your DVD player, and turn off the DVD player when you turn off the TV.

RE: Jensen JWM990 Theater-Style Wallmount Stereo

Buy a REAL brand name.. in car stereos names like Pioneer, Kenwood, JVC, Clarion, Sony come to mind.. You had me until you mentioned Sony... Point was EVEN a Sony would be better than a Jensen.. :B

RE: Jensen JWM990 Theater-Style Wallmount Stereo

Anyone add this into their rig or have a newer rig with this system installed? I was thinking about adding (replacing our existing radio) this to our rig, but at ~$500 it is an update that needs to be sure we want and know that it is a good system. Our current radio is a piece of turd and doesn't work well at all. I have done some reading the trade rags and it seems to get some decent reviews. Thanks Specs Sales Page Replace a junk with another junker :h Jensen brand name anything is garbage (albeit EXPENSIVE garbage). Buy a REAL brand name.. in car stereos names like Pioneer, Kenwood, JVC, Clarion, Sony come to mind.. You can get any of those brands in car stereos with DVD player built in.. YES, I realize car stereos do not offer SURROUND sound.. But really, you are in a RV not a home theater.. A lot of the "surround" noise will be placed too close to you since speaker placement for CORRECT timing is less than optimal in a RV. However pretty much any car stereo of any of those brands WILL offer SUBWOOFER OUTPUTS which you simply add an amplifier and subwoofer.. The subwoofer is what most folks are looking for and is easy to hook up with a car stereo now days. If you really must have surround sound then buy a NAME BRAND HOME Theater system which has built in DVD plus amps and runs from 120V AC. To use with no shore power you simply use an inverter...

RE: Jensen JWM990 Theater-Style Wallmount Stereo

Personally I would go with a head unit designed for a car. Much better quality and far less expensive. I put a Blaupunkt head unit in my old trailer and I loved it, but that was back before MP3s, etc. When my current Jensen dies it's getting replaced with a "real" head unit that has DVD and MP3 capability.

RE: Looking for suggestions on new DVD AM/FM stereo

I just went through what you are due to a mis wired pedestal. When I went to replace the Home theater in a box system I found out Best Buy and 3 outher electronic stores did not have one that fit in my cabinet. I settled on a Jensen DV2011 that I found on Amazon. Since then Jensen has come out with a JWM990 that would have fit. I priced it out through Forest River. They wanted over $900.00 Priced it direct with ASA Electronics. They wanted over $450.00. C.B.
