My Alpine CDE-W235BT bluetooth has stopped working after a failed update. How do I fix it?

I tried to update Alpine w235bt. The update froze and I waited for some time but then I stopped the update by switching off the car. I did not think anything will happen but now everything works except the bluetooth. The bluetooth is as if it is disabled. If I go to the bluetooth menu I can scroll through the menu but not select anything.

Sounds to me like the firmware is damaged, try flashing it with another firmware, or maybe updating it with the same update but successfully if possible.

SOURCE: i am getting a DC error on my alpine cde-102 head

Hello christo12385,

The DC error is most likely caused by a shorted or grounded speaker wire. Check all speaker wires, correct the problem, and then go into the sound setup settings and reset the POWER IC to ON.

Hope this helps.

Why I have no sound on Alpine CDE-111R. After six years appeared an option which it never appeared before, "BT AUDIO".After that is no sound anymore

Seems that you activated Bluetooth audio for playing music from a Bluetooth device. If you google alpine cde111 manual you will get a link to the owners manual which gives step by step instructions on how to disable Bluetooth audio

My car stereo speakers shut down every 2-3 minutes forapproximately 3-10 seconds

The "installer" should suspect that you are driving the Bose amplifier too hard and it is going into thermal shutdown periodically.

I have a alpine CDE 134EBT bluetooth unit and unfortunately i changed da radio from one car to another and now i cant connect the bluetooth with anything...i have tried it on a different number of phones...

If you have a knowledgeable Alpine dealer in you area, stop by and ask them for help. I will assume you have connected ALL the wiring and have done it according to the wiring diagram supplied by Alpine. If not, get a wiring diagram and double check your connections...I used to install these, and problems like this were usually my fault!

Does not power on

Check the fuse in the fuse box of your car and if that doesn't help there is a fuse on the back of the alpine unit. And if this doesn't fix the problem then most likely you have a bad unit.

Alpine cde-126bt bluetooth connection issues, only connects with 1 phone, second device fails at connecting when using pin.(0000). software ver is 3.80

Hi, same problem (v3.80), but finally conected. I would say that is related with bluetooth name length of the phone.
Try setting the phon's name to something smaller.
Conected with an android device, Motorola MB200 (DEXT)
