Re: alpine cda9883

One of the circuits on the "board" may be loose, or poorly soldered. I had a similar issue with My Pioneer unit. I checked them all, added some solder to the loose ones, and it was as good as new. Best of Luck.

Installed Alpine CDE-121 in May, has worked great up until now. System works, but no sound comes out

Some models of some vehicles have a power amplifier that is separate from the head unit. You did not specify what you have your Alpine installed in but you may find the "no sound" issue involves a separate power amp.

I just replaced my subwoofer in my car and i need to turn up the gain on my new subwoofer. can i do this from my alpine cda9855 head unit

Yes on most alpine units this feature is available but the sub woofer has to be conected to the sub woofer input and if it's setup like this you can go to your audio menu on your alpine unit and turn it up or down I hope this helps.

Alpine cda-9811 is not accepting amp as external amplifier?

The signal should go from the head unit to the amp to the subs. Someone must not have wired the subs correctly through the amp, or amp to the cd player..

CDs and Ipod wont play with Alpine CDA-9885

The Alpine has two tigger wires when it turns on. One is an AMP TURN ON wire (blue/white) and a PWR ANT wire (blue) and that wire only comes on when using the radio or an optional HD radio unit ... When it was installed/connected . someone hooked your amp turn on wires for your "full range amps" to the PWR ANT wire. And the sub amp trigger is either hooked correctly to the AMP TURN ON WIRE or somewhere else, it probably shouldn't be... Check it. Amp triggers should all be to the blue/white wire from your alpine. Warning: Alpine trigger wires, are very easy to mess up they supply a very limited amount of power.

No sound from Subwoofers

Did you check the gain level on the amp? Sometimes a bad or loose ground can cause this also. Was it working previosly and it stopped or did it never work at all. Let me know. Hope this helps.

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.
