To set the time, make sure that the receiver is in Time mode (the clock is displayed). Press the Title/CLK button, if needed. Then press and hold the CLK button for at least 3 seconds or until the time starts to blink. If you want to set the time to the nearest hour to the current time on the display, press the 4/Mix/CT button. (Note: the clock control labels are in fine print above the key.) (9:38 AM will become 10 AM; 9:20 PM will become 9:00 PM). If you want to set the hour, press the 5/RPT/H button. Each press will advance the hour by one. To set the minutes, press 6/Scan/M until you reach the current minute. If you do not press a button for 5 seconds, the unit will leave the Set mode. You'll need to press and hold CLK to return to the Set mode. If you are done setting the clock and do not wish to wait, press and release the CLK button.

The manual is available here: .

I hope this helps.

How do I set the clock on my Alpine stereo, Model CDM 9801?

Hi there,

From Page 6 of the CDM-9801 manual from Alpine's site:

1. In the Clock priority mode, press and hold the
DISP button for at least 3 seconds while the
time is displayed. The time indication will blink

2. Turn the Rotary encoder to adjust the hours
while the time indication is blinking.

3. When the hour has been adjusted, press the
Rotary encoder.

4. Turn the Rotary encoder to adjust the minutes
while the time indication is blinking. The time is
automatically set 5 seconds after the minute
adjustment. The time can also be manually set by
pressing the Rotary encoder.


I hope that helps.

After installing the alpine CDE 9870 car stereo there was no sound... although the car speakers work.Maybe the audio in the stereo?Can thatbe fixed?

In this situation 8 times out of 10 the problem is not with the radio, it's that there are factory amplifiers. Many cars have them, and most require a little work, or an adapter to get going. Tell me the year, make, and model of the car, and perhaps I can give you more info.
