Re: no backlight on a cdm-7834

The only possible installation problem could be the illumination wire on the head unit. If this is hooked to a 12 lead it would dim the backlight. Try disconnecting the orange wire if it has one(I'm not sure if the 7834 had a dimmer lead). If that doesn't fix it the head unit will have to be serviced.

,answered many questions like this with this make of radio and sometimes when the battery goes flat slowly over time it damages one of the micro processors within the set and its easier to replace rather than try to unsolder the chip on the radio mother board .

I Just Purchased a Cavalier with an Alpine CDM 7861 stereo. no owner manual or slides to remove the slide out head. how do I remove without damaging the stereo?

If you go to an car audio install shop they have tons of leftover slide removal tools. Just ask them for a pair. The nice shops will just give them to you without charging.

How do i set the time?

Not sure if you have tried this yet or not but try turning the radio off and then holding down one of the buttons for a couple secs to set the time. I have to set mine with the radio off and thought maybe you hadn't tried that...
