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

I have hk3385 receiver and Ipod Touch 4G. I have the cable to connect them. Where do I hook the cable on the receiver (or do I?) and which buttons will play the Ipod music. No video, just music


The manual suggests that you use "A / V 3" (audio / video input 3) for your iPad / iPod audio input. These are the RED and WHITE jacks on the front lower right hand side of the receiver. The YELLOW jack is for composite VIDEO, and need not be connected for "audio only" programs.

Turn the volume on the iPod / iPad to MINIMUM (assuming the receiver volume is at a "normal" setting for the radio, CD, etc.). Connect the cable between the iPod / iPad and the A / V 3 RED and WHITE audio jacks. Select A / V Input 3 on the receiver. Find a song you want to listen to and select PLAY in the iPod / iPad. Slowly adjust the volume on the iPod / iPad up to a comfortable level. If there is distorted sound, adjust he receiver and iPod / iPad volumes up and down as needed. Generally, neither should be set very low or very high.

You can download the owners manual here.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Ipod turns on and works - cant hear song playing


Check the volume using the buttons on it and also in your settings/volume limit. If that doesn't work, resync it with iTunes and see if there is a parental control in place preventing music to be played.

Power problem?


???

1. Is the head unit powering the speakers directly or through an amp?
2. What ohm load (4,8,) per channel and how many speakers?
3. Does it do it with the bass set all the way down?

If you have access to a voltmeter see what the voltage is on the yellow and black wires when it is diming. It should be stable ~ 13.5v with car on. if its < 10v when dimming either there is:

1. Shorted speaker lead.
2. Bad ground to radio.
3. loose power feed to radio.
4. Ohm load below 4 ohms, causing the eccess current draw.

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.
