If the display goes out then it is possible the flex cable is broken. Return it to Rockford for repairs.

I accidentally changed the command code from dvd3 to dvd1 and now my remote doesn't work, and I don't know how to access the systems menu to change it back.

Since unit has been set on DVD1 remote mode so you need to set remote control itself on dvd1 mode to communicate with unit.
Press and hold Enter and 1 numeric key on remote control for 5 seconds, this will change remote control to dvd1 mode, now unit will accept remote control signal and you can operate it normally.

My RCA big screen plays for about half a movie and picture dims then shuts off. Sound still works. I shut off for a few minutes picture comes back on and shuts off again after few minutes.

These units are famous for loose connections around the high voltage transformer and also bad capacitors in the power supply. The deflection PCB has to be removed to fix this problem. You probably would need to have a repair shop check it out for you. Thanks

The radio on my Coby 610 turns off after 3 minutes of play

I don't think I am actually solving this, but I think I may have a reason why it is happening. I am having the same problem with the radio turning off after about three minutes (I, too, had to reinstall the firmware).
I think the system sees the player as "inactive" when in radio mode and shuts down after a few minutes of "inactivity" -- even though you are, in reality, listening to the radio. The exact same thing happens when you pause an MP3 you are listening to; the system will see the player as inactive (because the music is paused) and shut down after a few minutes.
Maybe there isn't anything in the system (firmware?) that can differentiate the inactivity of just listening to music coming in through an antenna and the inactivity of paused digital music?
Feel free to send this to Coby tech support and see what comes back.

Make sure the vents on the back and the bottom are not clogged and make sure the fan in the back is coming on. If you're a smoker then the dust and smoke build up in the machine blocking air flow. It happens a lot. If this is not the case and the unit is under warrenty send it in.

Also, try and notice if this only happens with certain games. When you say it shuts off does the power completely fail or does the red or amber light come on?
