This model of cd changer doesn't have the fm modual built into it. So I am wonder how this setup worked before. Most of these units had an FM tansmitter in them and you would just turn on your factory radio and set the fm tuner to a certain frequency like 89.5 or 91.3, not excatly sure on the right number, but somewhere low in the range. Turn on the stero and try tuning into differnet stations.
But like I said this model is desgined to be used with a aftermarket head unit with the proper wired connection going from the cd changer to the head unit.
Well your changer has seen better days, but not dead yet. It can be repaired, but it's gonna cost ya. There are pro's, and con's in the debate between repairing, and buying new, but that's for you to decide.
Alpine makes some of the best, and longest lasting product's in the car audio industry, so getting it repaired isn't a bad idea, but the cost of changers has come down ALOT in the last 6 years so it may not be any cheaper to get it fixed. If you like the Alpine brand, then fix the one ya have, because Alpine no longer manufactures CD changers.
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.
