Alpine CDA-9851 (turning off and back on)

Hi there, My Alpine 9851 keeps switching off while playing, then either comes back within a few seconds to the same track or stays off for a few mins and completely resets itself. I have checked that none of the wires are loose. The only thing which i can think of is the case has become slightly bent due to somebody trying to steal it from my car. Could the fact that the stereo is not mounted perfectly straight be the cause of this? I would appreciate it if anybody who may know what could be causing this could let me know. Many thanks Shaf

Re: Alpine CDA-9851 (turning off and back on)

If someone tried to steal it maybe they Jolted some of the wires behind the harness or the connection into the harness and when you are driving it loses its connectivity. Check all of the connections in the harness and make sure noone of them feel loose. Just as a test try putting it in another car(if applicable) or bench test it, I.e leave it hooked up directly to the battery for a while playing a cd with a small speaker hooked up to a channel( make sure wires dont cross...!!!!!!) and see if you can replicate the issue. Just some thoughts.

Cd player won't open

Try disconnecting the car battery for a few minutes, the unit may reset when you re-connect the battery. Worth a try.

Playing external sources

you have to switch your decks source to AUX and it should work fine. If not you may have a bum player with a bad input.

Peripheral's Connex2Car adapter to an Alpine CDA-9851

the alpine should recognize it as a "changer" when you select the source; ie: radio, CD, changer. Sounds simple, but have you turned up the volume on the iPod?
The Alpine adapter is $100, but works great, you can totally control all your iPods functions, and it displays all song info on the Alpine decks display.
