Have you tried to clean it with a cleaning kit yet? They make kits that have a special disk that has brushed on it and some use a cleaning solution to remove the dust and dirt build up from the laser pick up. If this doesn't solve it then there is internal problems with the mechanism itself. Either misalignment of the lens or malfunction of mechanical pieces due to wear, it could just need lubrication of the moving parts also. An Alpine unit is worth the money to have professionally repaired, if it was any other brand I would just say buy a new one. If you have no luck with a cleaner and you are not comfortable taking it apart to lubricate it I would have it fixed. If you find repairs to be too expensive I would sell it and buy another, keep in mind that costs have come down now on Head units now but choosing a brand that is very cheap could be hard to get used to using after owning an Alpine.
Please check carefully the format the CD you burn.
Your player should has at least same format or better to make it read the CDs.
For example standard dvd player will not able to read mpeg 4 CDs.
Sounds like it's overheating. Does this unit have a small fan in the back? If so, does it work, or is the airflow blocked? Also, you can get 'steam' on the disc when coming in or out of the cold with it.
DVD region number (playable region number)
This DVD head unit will play back any disc
whose region number is 2 (or All). DVDs
with a region number other than those listed
below, cannot be played on this DVD player.
The Alpine has two tigger wires when it turns on. One is an AMP TURN ON wire (blue/white) and a PWR ANT wire (blue) and that wire only comes on when using the radio or an optional HD radio unit ... When it was installed/connected . someone hooked your amp turn on wires for your "full range amps" to the PWR ANT wire. And the sub amp trigger is either hooked correctly to the AMP TURN ON WIRE or somewhere else, it probably shouldn't be... Check it. Amp triggers should all be to the blue/white wire from your alpine. Warning: Alpine trigger wires, are very easy to mess up they supply a very limited amount of power.
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
