No display on biolite screen

Hi all I have a problem with my HDA-5460 - all of the front panel lights work, the deck plays mp3s, all of the buttons and switches seem to work, but the biolite display is blank. Anyone seen this before, and know of any solutions? TIA

Re: No display on biolite screen

Yep I have a solution what has happened which is common with hard drives is your file table has forgotten where the image / video files for the menu are located. I had to dissassemble my hard drive and have the data recovered. Good thing the hard drive was still working. With it apart I've now backed up the information on the drive so if I have to replace it I know how to do it now.

KD-R826 BT. Push buttons, vol control on detachable panel do NOT work. Panel lights up, front mounted usb MP3 mmemory stick plays OK. Contacts clean. Need a new panel ??

You may has a bad switch. If you have a multimeter, you can check the switches for resistance. If the resistance is a few hundred k ohms or less on a switch, it is probably bad. The microprocessor in the deck can handle only one function at a time. If it is getting a signal from one of the switches, it will lock the radio up.

The deck opens buts doesnt play music and the screen doesnt show.

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.

HDA-5460 with no display

Unfortunately the OS was corrupt and wasn't able to get it working. I have contacted alpine they want 70$ to get it reflashed with an os. If I do it I'll be making an image of it just incase this happens again.

Unable to play MP3 CDs on JVC KD-G140

I had this same problem and realized after reading the manual that this model does not play mp3's. They use the same manual for the g140 and the g240 (the model which plays mp3s).

Display light burnt out

Solution #2 is incorrect. Alpine service charges a flat $95 for repairing a CDA-7998. How do I know? I sent mine in two weeks ago and got it back a few days ago. They

1) Replaced the burned-out biolite display
2) Replaced the fantomface cam gear
3) Replaced the main logic board
4) Cleaned the laser/pickup optical assembly

Charge: $95 including return shipping.

HDA-5460 needs software

There isn't a new one. And it doesn't work on Vista.

Alpine support for this model is useless

Lighting on deck

It could be the dimmer - Press and hold [MENU] (DIM) for more than 2 seconds to change dimmer level setting. I suppose you tried playing with the display button as well. Besides these, there's also a decent chance that either the display lamp is not getting power, or that it's out. That takes taking the thing apart, and you probably don't want to do that. Better take it to a repair shop in that case. Good luck
