This is a coincedence. The CDX-M800 had a HUGE problem with the ribbon cable on the face going bad, causing this exact problem.
$14.00 and some time will put it back into perfect condition.

Everything works great except after you touch a button or something there is like a 5 second delay and the screen turns black. but lights up everytime you do something to it....


Blackout Mode On and Off

When the Blackout mode is turned on, the display will

turn off to reduce power consumption.

This additional power enhances the sound quality.

1 Press and hold the B.OUT button for at least 3

seconds to start the blackout mode. By doing so the

display will turn off.

NOTE

If any button on the unit is pressed during the blackout mode, the

function will be displayed for 5 seconds to show the operation

before returning to Blackout mode.

To cancel the blackout mode, press and hold the
B.OUT button for at least 3 seconds.

I have a Alpine cda 105.The display is blackout


Hi,from your problem it seems you either have'nt gone through your manual or you don't have one,there is a particular button you can press that makes the display blackout,i think you have mistakenly hit this button that's why the display is blackout.if you do not have the manual you can download it for free at;www.manualsonline.com,www.manualnguide.com to enable you to know this particular button.
Thanks and take care

My Aux-in wont work


did you turned aux function?

turn off your player by pressing and holding volume controler.
press and hold longer (~5 sec) it again to turn it on (you should see 'tuner' in the lcd).
push up arrow to select aux and right/left to turn it on.

now you can connect your ipod and select aux (as ussual switching between tuner/cd player/aux)

cheers :)

Stuck in demo


I had the same issue and was about to give up.
cleaning, key combos and such didn't work out.

Solved the dirty way, as described some comments above:

"Just took the faceplate from the "push-menu" button and hit it against a hard surface [not too hard but not too soft hits] and thats it, it worked again."

ah, the good manners!
