No sound output from my Alpine cda-d852 in dash receiver

I just installed an Alpine CDA-D852 into my 92 toyota camry (hard wired not factory plug in connectors). after connections were made according to the diagram on the back of the receiver it has no sound. The equalizer on the face plate of the unit is bouncing just like it should while playing but no output. The receiver worked fine in my old toyota truck. Are the speaker connections special or different than just + and -? Your help is appreciated. Could there be a connection I have missed that would let the stereo appear to work but have no output?

Just a guess, I’d say who ever installed it didn’t hook up the connector behind it. But lets say they did. In most cases, the radio’s connector bundle will have a fuse. It’s a good idea to check your car’s fusebox first to see if any fuses are blown there. In either case, if you replace a blown fuse with "the right value", and it blows again, have a tech check it out. Note that if you try to get to the rear of the unit, do a little research into how the radio is accessed through the dashboard. Most car radios aren’t quickies to get at and some folks can do damage trying to get at it, but if you methodically take logical steps, you should be able to pull the radio, check the connectors, locate the fuse if it has one. Of course, there may be a wiring incompatibility, meaning, the OEM radio had it’s own specific wiring harness, the Alpine was installed, but someone didn’t get the adapter harness to fit the car. Who knows. Good luck. TekTrax

SOURCE: Screen says searching when iPod connected to Alpine CDA-9847

Check your ipod to see if it is shuffle mode. Alpine doesn't document this but they have a bug that causes the problem that you describe. If the ipod is in shuffle mode the Alpine gets confused.

SOURCE: No sound from my 9855 alpine

There is an option in the unit itself to turn off the internal amplifier. If you push the 'menu' button, then go to the setup/settings menu, and then i believe it was under the 'general settings' tab. there's a option called INT IC or something. Make sure that is turned on.

SOURCE: alpine cda 9884 has no sound in cd or ipod mode

actually, chrysler/dodge has factory Infinity sound systems installed. The nice part about these systems is that you dont have to bypass the amplifiers in order to put a new radio in, but simply power up the amp by hooking up the amp turn on wire at the harness. The alpine should have 2 blue wires coming off of the back, one that is solid, the other with a white stripe. The one that is solid only has 12v when the fm/am radio is on (used for power antenna) but cuts off when other sources are used (cd,aux,ipod). My guesses are, you have the amp wire on the vehicle harness (blue) tied into this wire, instead of the BLUE/WHITE wire on the alpine which has 12v as long as the radio is on. i hope this solves your problem, 9 times out of 10 on a chrysler this is it.

Did you make sure you have no shorted or grounded speakers or speaker wires? Make sure you don't have a bad speaker also. If everything checks out, you may have a bad internal output ic.

Car stereo switch out


Ok, first off, NEVER CUT WIRES!!!! what you need to do is go to your local audio store ie. best buy etc. buy a wire harness. It makes everything so simple, just match colors. If your wires are already cut, then you need a haynes manual about $15.

Instaling alpine car/cd stereo cda 9807


Its probably your wiring harness that came with the stereo. Which can cause many more problems. alpine changed their wiring harness around that time. But they used the same plug, just wired different. So now there are crossed wires, but the plug fits, causing the amp chip to fry. maybe even further than the amp chip. an amp chip replacement runs about 80$ at a repair shop. if its just that.

No sound to the in car speakers from my alpine cda-9827 cd player


What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go.

Alpine CDA-7840


Some 4-Runners have a factory system that uses a separate amplifier to power the rear speakers. In this case you need to activate the amplifier using the blue/white remote output from your Alpine deck. It sounds like the wire that activates the amplifier is currently attached to the deck's blue "power antenna" output, so that the amplifier is only on when the tuner is selected. Disconnect whatever is attached to the blue wire behind the deck, and attach it to the blue/white wire instead. That should solve the problem.

Alpine cda-7892 Head unit overheating


Certainly, the output IC might need to be replaced, also check to see if there is a factory amp somewhere in the car. Additionally, double-checking the wiring is a must. How long does it take for the unit to heat up?
