Question about Alpine CDM-7861 CD Player

1 Answer

How do I get the Apline CDM 7861 to show the AUX function for use w/ an iPod?

I've plugged the appropriate cable (M) to the CD changer outlet that converts from an RCA plug to a cable with a mini plug that I can use with an iPod. Unfortunately I can not get the AUX function to appear on the faceplate so that the unit can recognize and play my iPod. I've tried the key selection process outlined in the URL below but still can not get the unit to show the AUX function.

When I press the F button for 3 seconds all I get is the ability to change the frequency for a sub woofer (which I do not have installed).

What gives? Do I need to turn off the sub woofer in order to get the AUX function to appear? Or is there a different key selection process?

    Thanks but that was the first thing I tried.

    The SOURCE/MODE button only toggles between the radio and the in-dash CD player. I can not get it to give the me AUX or CD Changer option.

    That's the problem - how can I get the deck to read my iPod as an input source via the AUX or CD Changer outlet?

Does using an ipod/AUX adapter through the CD changer input stop a real CD from working?


you have to change it from the Aux setting to CD when you want to play cd, some cd players switch to aux. automatically when you plug inthe aux. cable. and may have to be unplugged when playing cd.

Does the Kenwood KDC MP5032 have an aux input? If so, where is it?


Hi there,

Kenwood utilize the CD Changer plug in the back (which acts as a secondary Aux input), to operate external iPod devices.

This is done with the aid of an Adapter Lead - it has the 13-pin DIN plug on one end (plugs into the rear of your unit), and an iPod plug on the other end (plugs into your iPod).

Depending on the "Generation" of your external iPod device, you will need to buy the appropriate Kenwood adapter cable. These are: KCA-IP102, KCA-IP202 or KCA-IP302.

There may be some aftermarket (3rd party) cables that may do the same job.

Just ensure you read your Kenwood manual, as the Kenwood unit may be limited to the types of files (i.e. formats) it can read & play.

Hope this explains....

Cheers,

How do i use my infared headphones and can i use them on my laptop


You should be able to use infrared headphones with your laptop. You don't give a brand or model, but they're all pretty much the same. The transmitter connects to an audio source (and to a power source as well, so you'll need an AC outlet nearby) with the appropriate cable, and you just put the headphone on and turn on the power. Some headphones take regular batteries, while others have a rechargeable battery like a cordless phone; those are recharged when you hang the headphones back on the transmitter.

The couple of infrared headphone systems I've used both had RCA input jacks. The headphone jack on a laptop takes a 1/8-inch mini-stereo plug, so you'll need an adapter with a regular stereo patch cord (RCA plugs at both ends) or a cable with the right plug on the computer end and RCA plugs at the other. Radio Shack sells both.

If you have questions about your headphones, you can usually find a downloadable manual at the manufacturer's website.

Preplace the charger by another device


Yes it is possible with any cd changer that have RCA jacks behind the radio,
that is your case, you are goin gto install a audio sensing device, when the ipod is on the cd changer will stop,
when the ipod is off the cd changer will play 10 seconds later
this interface is only rca jacks easy to plug behind the radio and you can use any audio source, ipod mp3 sat radio
you can also buy a ipod cable

audio sensing device, it is made for sony, but will work with any rca jacks source, also cd changer must be present all the time, don't remove it

I need the audio cable that hooks the dvd/vcr player to the subwoofer


your player output is RCA connection and your subwoofer since you didn't mention it i think its a mini jack connector or BB plug connector...so you have to costumize for that cable... or u will buy a RCA cable in the market then buy a coonector that will convert your BB plug in your subwoofer to RCA... i

what i mean is this... from your player put a RCA coonecotr it is 2 wires in your subwoofer its output is BB plug so you have to buy a connector that will make your BB plug become a RCA male...in your RCA cable from your player its output is RCA male so again convert it to RCA female connector to so that you can connect it
