Question about Alpine CDA-9885 CD Player
If you're pressing on the "rotary encoder", then it's you. But if you're not and instead you're just turning it without pressing, you may have a defective unit. Try literally pulling on the thing while turning it. If that avoids triggering the other functions then either you'll have to get used to being gentle, or you need to take it back or send it to Alpine (again, probably just the front faceplate unit needs work...not the whole radio).
