Question about Dual XDM6830 CD Player

2 Answers

Stored settings and auto eject

The last few days when I turn my Dual player on it automatically ejects whatever CD is loaded. The unit also keeps losing all the stored power on settings (volume, bass, treble etc) along with losing all stored radio stations. The auto's digital clock hasn't reset, so it isn't a simple disconnect of the car battery. No other electrical problems with the car itself that I'm aware of. I've tried reseating the removeable faceplate, but it shouldn't lose the above settings even when that's removed. It plays fine, but of course I have to manually find radio stations and set manually the bass, treble etc each time I turn it on. Help?

Re: Stored settings and auto eject

Hi Factus, Ampman is right about the two power sources. I wish to add that the you should check to see that the yellow wire is powered. You may want to run another yellow wire from the 12V always on terminal on your fuse block to the radio. This will eliminate any possiblilty of a problem in the wire between the radio and power source. The Red wire is powered only when the key is turned on.

Re: Stored settings and auto eject

Hi. SOunds like another case of power problems. Your deck has 2 power wires. One is yellow th eother is red. One is constant 12 volt battery power, the other is a switched 12 volt power, only has power with the ignition key on or on accesory. Get yourself a test light. I almost bet you do not have the constant 12 volt power to the deck, therefore your deck cannot hold its presets...

Car cd player will not work

It sounds like it's not loading the disc propperly, it ejects immediatly yes? A mechanical loading fault.Try banging it as the disc loads..... not a cure but the knocking might dislodge something, it may have to come out and be fixed.

You need to visit Alpines' site to download the owner's manual for your unit. In the mean time here is some info from the troubleshooting guide for your error code.

• Mechanism error.
1. Press the "eject" button and eject the CD.
If not ejecting, consult your Alpine dealer.
2. When the error indication remains after ejecting,
press the "eject" button again.
If the error indication still does not turn off after
pressing the "eject" button for a few times, consult your
Alpine dealer.
When the "- - - E" is displayed:
In case that the disc cannot be ejected by pressing the "eject"
button, press the RESET switch (refer to page 4) and
press the "eject" button again.
If not ejecting, consult your Alpine dealer.

Good luck.

Cd ejection

Look for a tiny, recessed Reset button on the front of the unit with the face removed. Press this button with a pen tip; it should spit out the CD and work correctly afterwards. This will also erase your station presets and audio settings.

Cd ejects

New CDs may have some rough spots around the inner and outer edges. If such a CD is used, this unit may reject the CD. To remove these rough spots, rub the edges with a pencil or ball-point pen, etc.
