You need to visit Alpines' site to download the owner's manual for your unit. In the mean time here is some info from the troubleshooting guide for your error code.
• Mechanism error. 1. Press the "eject" button and eject the CD. If not ejecting, consult your Alpine dealer. 2. When the error indication remains after ejecting, press the "eject" button again. If the error indication still does not turn off after pressing the "eject" button for a few times, consult your Alpine dealer. Note When the "- - - E" is displayed: In case that the disc cannot be ejected by pressing the "eject" button, press the RESET switch (refer to page 4) and press the "eject" button again. If not ejecting, consult your Alpine dealer.
◊ Figure out what fuse controls the CD player and pull the fuse out for a minute (or more), then replace it (theory being that the fuse acts as a reset button). If you cannot find the fuse, you can disconnect the negative battery cable, but you'll lose your radio and other settings. This trick seems to have the greatest chance of success overall. ◊ Turn your ignition on to the accessory position. Hold the eject button down for 2 or 3 minutes. Depending on your make/model, the eject button may flash. When the button stops flashing (or when a few minutes has passed), release the button and immediately press it again (theory being that the two minutes of "work" followed by a quick break will fool the player into releasing the disc when you press the eject button again). ◊ Try using some tweezers, needle nose pliers or hemostats (every tool kit needs a hemostat or two!) to pull the CD out while pressing the eject button with power going to the player (theory being that the disc is so slick the player can't eject it without help). Some people report success just by pulling the disc out with the tweezers without power to the player and without pressing the eject button. ◊ If your player has a small hole in the front of it, like most personal computer CD players do, straighten a paperclip and push the clip straight into the hole to manually release the catch. Some players have a groove under the CD door instead of a hole. Look for a hole about the size of the paperclip and don't mistake an emergency release hole for an earphone jack.
lol i had that happen to me once i had to take out the stereo plug it bk in but turn it upside down and then eject it after i did that i never had a problem with it again but then again i only kept it for another month then got a new 1, good luck hope this helps
I have the same prob with mine right now and thats why I came here was to find the manual.
In the manual it states that that when something like this happens you need to hold two buttons for a few seconds and what it does is it resets the cpu in the deck.
I had to do it before and yes I was kind of leary of the solution also but IT WORKED!!
Now I'll have to dig before posting this otherwise I didnt just create a common solution I talked about it.
Ok while holding power/ATT press eject for more than two seconds,
and it says careful not to drop the cd~~~DAAA
Or to reset the unit: While holding SEL (select) press power/ATT
for more than two seconds and that will reset the unit to factory
And this was actually from my owners manual of which I found...
