Question about Alpine IVA-D310 Car DVD Player

Open Question

Head Unit Locks up

I have the D310 setup and worked great. after 4 months, it now takes between 2 and 90 seconds to come on with the ignition, and then after 5 minutes to 2 hours, it "locks" up and no buttons work, volume, etc. I have an ipod connection and that works fine, but freezes along with the head unit. I cannot tell if it is power, or programming, but I plan to connect the Blackbird GPS and Bluetooth. That will mean more devices crashing.

lol i had the exact problem that you are having with my alpine. The solution is taking the blue cord that was inside the vehicle (forgot what cord it was) and actually connecting it with the other blue cord thats different makes the factory amp read the cd player and ta-da it works. crazy isn't it

SOURCE: how can i test my alpine cva-1005 head unit

You can bench test it by hooking up powers and ground to a battery (12 volt) and use a speaker to one set of speaker wires at a time. Even a 12 volt cordless drill battery will work. Should only take a few minutes. You just won't get reception to radio stations without an antennae.

SOURCE: Cannot access bluetooth menu in the Alpine iva-d106

To connect the iva-d106 with the kce-400bt you need another cable

(KWE-460V), and to connect the ipod you'll need the KCE-435IV, first you connect KCE-400bt to the IVA-D106 using the KWE-460V cable, then conect the ipod to the KCE-400bt using the KCE-435IV

Alpine IVA-D310 will not eject CD. If you push eject button you hear the machine trying to eject CD, but nothing happens. The display says eject malfunction.

If you are comfortable with taking the unit out and taking the back off of it, you can access the CD that is stuck. If you are not comfortable in doing this, then I would recommend taking it to an electronics shop where they can work on it.

How do you run the satillie radio and hookup an ipod to this radio (alpine IVA-d310) at the same time?

you can buy either a cable for the i pod or depending on the model of alpine you may need a part to go with it to operate this can be picked up at any car audio place there are also either multiple auxs for your unit for sat radio. some newer units allow you to buy the alpine part to adapt to a sirius or xm part that wires in behind the stereo to give you the operation on your head unit.

Alpine IVA-D310-navigation option?

The nav feature is purchased separatly with the deck, the previous owner did not purchase it because at the time alpine was charging an extra $1000 on top of the price of the deck to add nav. This is due to the fact that alpine decided to use there own reasearch and development team to design a nav system where as kenwood baught the rights to use garmin's technology and put there name on it which they only charge $400 on top of the price of head unit to add nav.

I ran across the exact same thing as both of you guys and did a lot of research. I was told by someone very knowledgeable that you have to also change the small DC to DC power supply to match the D300. Its the small 3 inch by aroudn 2.5 inch silver box that is plugged into the back of the unit. Apparently after that it should work. I haven't got one to test with but if you do please post if it works. THanks
