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,

I have a CDE-9872 and it wont pick up my ipod touch


Add Alpine's optional "Full Speed" connection cable and you'll be able to use the CDE-9872 to control your iPod. -Crutchfields website

This is compatible with first and second generation iPods touch.
fyi- if you have a mini-stereo aux in jack on the deck you can connect a ipod touch compatible mini stereo cable to the earphone jack of your ipod.

How do I turn on the "external aux" for my pioneer DEH-p7000r


You'll need an adapter cable such as this one:
http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Product/Item/Main.aspx?search=ip+bus&i=469PIOPRCA

The adapter cable will convert the changer port on your head unit into an AUX input with dual RCA jacks. Once connected, the head unit will detect the cable and allow it to be another source (i.e. radio, cd, aux).

To connect your iPod to the adapter cable, use any iPod cable or dock that outputs to male RCA plugs.

Ipod wire


I had the same problem with my 4600mp series. I had to go thru my function key button and enable the aux. By default even if you plug in something the aux is off.

Ipod hookup


I believe that you are lucky since the "P" in the model number of the deck indicates and extra input source on the rear of your deck. This is used right now by your changer. You need to replace the changer with the Ipod and you are done. Stereo mini to dual rca's and you are done.
