Question about Alpine iDA-X200 Car CD/ MP3 Player

Open Question

Ipod suddenly not recognized by my car stereo (Alpine iDA-X200)

My Ipod nano (2nd gen) worked just fine when I first had the stereo installed and was fine for 3 weeks. All of a sudden, when I plug in the same Ipod nano, it shows as no USB device. Thus, I cannot use my Ipod in the car anymore, pretty much rendering my stereo useless. I live in a poor radio reception area. I don't know what happened. I don't see how any cords or wires could have come loose, but I can think of no other explination for this. Please help!

    Same thing happened to me. I've had the stereo for about 2 months, than all of a sudden the ipod wouldn't recognize the x200 as a compatible accessory. Defeats the purpose of having the deck if I can't use my ipod with it.

    Same thing happened here only it lasted 1 day, well a day in a half. FUnny thing is if I use my friends ipod which is a shuffle, it works fine, go figure.

SOURCE: installing the Alpine IDA-X200

So it is powering up? On your actual deck will be a picture of the schematics of the wiring. With the system powered up, assuming you taped up the power wires, strip the front left wires coming from the deck and use them as your tester. You now know forsure they are for the front left so as you go through your cars audio wires you will find which wires are for which speakers around your car. Label them as you test them. Hope that helps.

You could get a stereo installation kit for your year, make & model, that comes with a pigtail plug that would plug right into the existing harness plug and prevent you from having to hack up your original wiring harness.

If not....

Car Radio memory Constant 12v+ Wire: Orange
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: The radio harness does not provide a switched power source. Run a wire to the fusebox for switched power.
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black/White
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Gray
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Pink
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: N/A
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Dark Green
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Blue
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Light Blue

Good luck

SOURCE: Need to know what wires are for what to change out

Hello,
The best thing you can do for your situation is to get a vehicle wiring diagram for your particular vehicle. This can be done at the dealer or by buying a vehicle manual at the autoparts store that has the wiring diagrams in it. You can then see the wiring color coding. They also make a factory plug pigtail that you can plug into your existing radio harness and then wire it correctly to the new radio. The new radio should have the wiring layout included with its documentation, and some radios also have small marking tabs on the wire ends to tell you what they are for. Good Luck, RAC

SOURCE: my alpine ida x200 keeps skipping during songs

All you can really do is use a CD Player cleaner *one that uses fluid* run it thru a couple times and try a disc again. Clean your CD's with liquid car polish an a microfibre towel, it works wonders for new and old CD's. If it still skips, It needs to be pulled for repair. They just replace the transport, usually runs between 100-150 depending on the service center. Hope this helps.

IPOD is hanging but can't be reset.


i would try reformatting your ipod to factory specs (can be easily done with itunes following the information provided at mac.com)

to reset the ipod, turn it off, then on -- then hold down the 'menu' key while pressing the center 'click' key until you get the apple logo. this just may solve the problem.

Alpine ida-x001 volume is low even if stereo is turned all the way up only when ipod is plugged in on ipod setting.Radio (AM/FM) is normal volume (louder)..How can I fix this?


Most newer car receivers have a feature named something like "level balancing" in which you can adjust the relative loudness of each input (Tuner, CD, AUX, IPOD). Check you owner's manual for a similar function.

Also, are you or can you turn the level of the ipod itself up a bit?
