Question about Alpine CDA-9885 CD Player

1 Answer

Interface Problems Had the CDA-9885 installed a few days ago, and I thought it just took getting used to, but it seems the 'rotary encoder' is extremely touchy. I go to change the volume, by turning the 'rotary encoder' or the nob, and it sometimes does it, or it will cycle through all the bass/treble/fade things. It's about 50/50 chance of working. Then 'loudness' toggles itself on/off more times than not when I try to change volume. All the while this thing beeps occasionally, and most times after a beep happens, none of the buttons work, like the deck goes into lock down mode. Only the 'rotary encoder' will work, usually cycling the audio settings, but I have no idea what makes all the buttons work or not. I do mean all the buttons, power/band/func./(>/=) etc. Is it me or is it the deck?

    I started taking out my face plate every night because it seems like every other car gets broken into around me. After about a month of this my stereo shuts down. It wont let me push any buttons (not even power) and the volume only works sometimes. If I do lightly or roughly change the volume it freaks out and switches from bass/volume/defeat/and other sound options while beeping. I know this problem has to do with the face plate connecting to the stereo itself. Please help I'm a broke college kid who can't aford an expensive fix and am road tripping in my truck across the country and would love my radio to work!

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).

How do i get my Alpine CDA 9885 head unit out to fit a sub???


Remove the face, and trimring plastic.
There are slots on either side that you put the Alpine unlocking keys into (came with your headunit new) then slide the chassis out.
If you don't have keys - you can use a small allen wrench - or buy them at best buy etc.
A local alpine dealer will probably let you borrow his keys as a good business practice.
