I have alpine stereo's in all my vehicles and i have had this problem. if you run a 10-14 gauge constant wire from the stereo directly to the battery the stereo will not shut down in protection mode. it is not the cd it is the stereo going into protection mode because of lack of current not voltage. i hope this helps after i did this i could play the stereo as loud as it can go until my battery died

Re: i love loud music
SORRY TO TELL YOU THIS BUT; There is a safety feature in all cd players that while playing a cd at extreme levels, it shuts off so you don't burn out the player, altenator, or speakers. It sucks and it's weir that it only works with cd's, but that's what it is. You'll have to get an amp

Nothing you can here this was about the time when they introduced producting coding to stop people from making their own CDs ,copyright thing so buy one of them cheap radio transmitter things that plugs into the ciggy lighter and plays a SD card so put your music on this and play through a preset radio station tuned into the sender transmitter
To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs,
MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs,
make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs
The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability
is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was
recorded in and the actual disc used for recording. Note: iTunes
defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make
CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the
format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options
Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which
may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning
your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs
If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints
or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still
won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc
Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in
Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of their units. If you check their web site, www.bose.com, you'll find that they will repair your unit for $100 or possibly give you $200 credit towards a new model. Before you take them up on either offer, you might want to check out the new lines of HD radios. Better souind quality, MUCH lower prices than a Bose.
I really like these radios, by the way, and have 1 of the radios w/out CD, 2 with the CD and one of the HD radio's. I'm one of those people that needs multiple alarms to get up so I set several of them to turn on at different times in the morning and it works great!
I have had this problem twice and I've unplugged the unit then after I plug it back in I hold down the CD eject button while I turn it back on. The display then says something like "CD Reset" and it resets the CD mechanism to the beginning of the cycle. This moves the CD holder to the correct position. (I assume the problem is due to the CD positioning device stopping in the wrong place after it ejects a CD, for whatever reason)
I hope this helps. Mine did the same thing with no CD inside.
I listen to the radio a lot, and by having these in several rooms, I can listen to radio without having to have it turned up super loud when I am walking around the house. I also use this at the High School where I am a science teacher. It produces enough quality audio to fill the classrooms with music or playing podcasts of "Science Friday."
I hav an 03 and it exhibited the same problems; on off on off nothing works. I discovered this repair 2 days ago and it works perfectly and I am one happy camper.
1. Start by pulling the main fuse for the radio (if you already haven't)
2. Re insert the fuse and turn the radio on (nevermind the on off sequence). Insert a music CD, it will take one.
3. Pull the fuse again, count to five and re insert fuse.
4. When the CD starts to play, use the menus to get down to the factory default settings and ask it to reset to factory.
5. And you are now working again. Or you should be. It basically is a processor and it operates just like your home PC whn it needs a reload. It searchs to the default drive which is the CD player.
