Alpine CHM-S620 Tape/CD button inoperative

I have just bought a new 6-CD magazine asĀ it was missing when I bought the car. Having loaded it with CD's and installed it in the multichanger, when I press the Tape/CD selector button nothing happens. Radio continues working but I cannot get it to change function to tape or CD.

If you can advise, please send to

Re: Alpine CHM-S620 Tape/CD button inoperative

Dont know Steve, i am no fundi with electronics but could it be that your system is set up for the steering remote, or perhaps not activating because of a wiring or button contact issue ?
Hope you get it sorted out.

sounds like the changer was plugged into the antenna jack of the radio. this means that you can run it through any radio simply by sending a signal to a preset station on the radio and listening to it through tuner. the control unit ran the changer itself. you may be able to obtain replacement cables from

The 6 disc magazine will not eject -

Ok..just happened to me. I'm a tinkerer so it's assumed that everything is out of warranty. The low down and skinny is this. The last disc holder is stuck on the metal changer tab, preventing the magazine to eject. 1. Remove the six screws on the left and right sides. 2. Use a small flathead screwdriver to GENTLY pry off the front Alpine CHM-S620 plastic facia.\ 3. On both left and right sides, collapse and push in the rubber suspension mounts. 4. Carefully remove the vertical/horizontal mount springs. 5. Gently pull off the data cable ribbon. 6. Flip over the changer unit. Use a coathanger to gently push the cartridge back into magazine. **You may damage the cd and last holder. Small price to pay to get things back to working order though. You may also have to wiggle the last cd holder to get it over the metal lip. 7. Reassemble in reverse order. 8. Change out that last cd cartridge so it doesn't jam again. Good luck.

if you open the cage on the unit, you can pop the tray back out of the mechanism by VERY GENTLY turning the load gear on the carriage, be sure to not slip any gears on the drive or the changer will be out of sync and will be garbage unless you have it serviced by an Alpine service center. you are best to turn the 1st. gear beyond the carriage motor, or you can apply power to the motor (which I don't advise) to let the motor eject the tray. if you do choose the power method, be 100% sure of the polarity first otherwise you will damage the carriage and drive gears. the motor has a brass gear and the rest are nylon gears, the brass gear will very easily shred a nylon gear. want to be extra careful? manually turn the load motor gear itself, it will take alot longer to do, but will be the safest. I've been inside these machines quite a bit, hope I was able to help.
