"error" message when playing cds

A while back I started recieving a message stating "error" when inserting a CD into my alpine head unit? It seemed to start showing these symptoms sporadically and then all of a sudden it was constant and I haven't been able to play a CD once. I've tried cleaning it and reconnecting the harness to ensure the wires were connected firmly. Any other ideas?

Alpine CDE 9870 Won't Eject Scratched 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.

Not sure what the problem is

Check the changer and see if cds are inserted correctly or if 2 cds are in one slot.

Comes up with disc error

cd cleaners usually cause more damage than good by scratching the eye that reads the cd. my recommendation is to try and find where your local alpine repair place is and bring it there.

Alpine Ipod/Stereo Error 1 message

my alpine cda 9856 only displays that message when my ipod dies. so your ipod pobably dies then the head unit recharges it enough in the time your resetting it that it can play again. :)
