I have the same deck and a very similar problem. Mine was stuck in the out position and would beep and move a little but there was no lights or music. I called Alpine and they told me that sometimes the inner sleeve around the deck will pinch the unit a little. I took my unit out of the dash and sure enough the plastic face plate came loose and moved about 1/32 of an inch when I slide it back in place and turned the power back on it worked perfectly. Hope this helps.

I have a Kenwood KDC-MP442U Deck and protect will not come off


check speakers for a short protect means one of the speakers are shorting so check all the connections on speakers or if you have a multimeter put the black to ground and put it on contanuity and check from the plug at the unit and it will beep if one is shorting then you know which one to check instead of pulling your whole car apart:)

Location of reset on unit


when you disconnect it from cables, it resets. But i believe that is not the problem. Check speaker cables. I think you have problem with internal power amps. They have thermal and current protection. look for short circuits on speakers or speaker cables.

Losing power


mine does this too, I have the deck on my boat and on land the deck cuts out when a bass line hits or loud music comes in, cuts out at about 20 on the volume level, however, when on the water and the motor is running, my voltage is up to 14 vdc or so.. At this point, I can crank the deck up to 30-37, and it will scream , doesnt cut out or lose power just rocks. I have heard that kenwood decks are competition stereos and require 14-16vdc, but I have never found any proof of this. One thing you can do is order a battery from summitracing.com that runs higher than 12vdc. But then again im just speculating

My alpine deck used to play burned cd's and mp3's as well but now for some reason it will only play store bought ones i was wondering if maybe i pressed a programming button on the face or maybe on my...


The Alpine cda-7842 was not intended to play burned cd's and Mp3's. I don't recemmend you play anything but store bought cd's. I belive that the laser can be damaged by playing Mp3's and they sometimes make weird noises because of the laser seeking erratically, due to the year that cda-7842 was manufactered.
