"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?

CDs and Ipod wont play with Alpine CDA-9885

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.

Not reading cds

Yes, more likely due to vibration on shipping that cause optical eye damaged or miss alignment. Best thing to do is sent for repair if the unit is high dollars value.

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. :)
