Question about Alpine CDA-9855 CD Player

Music Won't Play

I have an alpine 9855 and today I was listening to music and it just stops in the middle of a song. Everything else works on the player..all the lights and beeps when i press buttons and tilt, etc work fine. But cd's and the radio won't work. When I turn on a cd or the radio the LCD screen says the song or radio is playing but then the screen goes black within a couple of seconds and no sound. Please help I cannot get the sound to come back on..what is happening?

I have a CDA-9855 Alpine head unit. It worked just fine when removed from my prior vehicle (05 VW Golf). I just installed it in an 01 Land Rover Discovery II using a wiring harness adapter so no cutting or...

it sounds like you have the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) turning on an external amplifier in your rover. the antenna remote wire turns off when you leave tuner mode.

Why wont cds i make with my computer play on my alpine cde 7856????

OFTEN the CD's haven't been "finalized" by the computer which is needed for many of the players. If the program offers up the option to add further songs to the CD, it is NOT finalized.

You MIGHT also try using the "music" type CD's to record on... They are more expensive but Staples sells them.

I have pluged a kca420i & ipod into my alpine-9855r but i'm only getting music in the left speekers

Let's do some inexpensive troubleshooting. At the amp switch the rca jacks and see if you still get sound. If you get sound out of the left speaker then the right side output needs to be repaired. But if you get sound out out of the right speaker only then you have a problem with the preout of the stereo and the stereo will need to be repaired. Hope this helps.

No sound with USB and IPOD Apline IDA-X100

You connected your blue alpine wire (power antenna) to your blue wire (amplifier remote on) on the BMW harness adapter. You need to undo this, amputate your blue alpine wire (because your E36 has no power antenna) and connect the alpine blue wire with white stripe (remote power) to your blue wire on the harness adapter.

When you switch source from the radio, alpine is shutting off your amplifier through the connected power antenna wire. Since you're not listening to the radio anymore, it sees no reason why it should give it power.

No sound from my 9855 alpine

There is an option in the unit itself to turn off the internal amplifier. If you push the 'menu' button, then go to the setup/settings menu, and then i believe it was under the 'general settings' tab. there's a option called INT IC or something. Make sure that is turned on.

Alpine head unit CDA-9855R

Yes, I'm sure Alpine will sell you another face but there is still the option of repairing the broken face at a good repair shop. Of course getting a new face is the easiest (read most expensive) way to get you going again.
