Question about Alpine CDA-9830 CD Player

1 Answer

Alpine CDA-9830 off-n-on mode

Recently my Alpine CDA-9830 has started powering off and on and off again in a never ending cycle. When it stays on it works fine; then suddenly it will switch off and on, staying on for about 1 second, then powers off by itself and back on again. It will do this continuously. My only recourse is to power it off. I cannot determine what triggers it. It does it while moving, while stopped, warm or cold.

    I checked the connections on both the red and yellow wires and all looked fine (wire nuts). I did however trim them back, stripped the insulation and reconnected them. I have not had any problems with it for the past week. I appreciate your feedback on this issue.

Check all the power connections it could be that the remote wire is hooked up to somthing falty, try hooking it up with the positive power to see if that fixes the problem, useing this method will require you to have to turn off your stereo manually. the power wire is yellow and is usually thicker and the remote or (ignition) wire is red, just wire them both together. the remote wire is usually connected to the positive end of somthing that turns on when the ignition is on like the cigarette lighter. if thats not the problem it could be that its not getting enough power ether because the power wires going to it are to thin or there isn't a good connection. check the voltage at your battery and at your stereo.

Hook up an ipod to this stereo

Get the Alpine KCA 420i adapter. I've had it for about 3 years and no problems. You can install the module anywhere and run the wire for the ipod just about anywhere. You can go through all of your ipod folders on the headunit. However, you will find out quickly that it can be a pain using the Alpine headunit interface tiresome on the CDA 9830 model and others similar from a few years back. I don't know if other head units have solved this issue.
