Re: buttons are jammed or frozen

See if you can do a hard reset, look for reset button in corner or kill power for more than 15min.

Alpine cdm 7861 stuck in pause mode

Check for a "jammed" button. They use a little rubber membrane behind buttons and over time they do wear out. It is possible to push a button on the corner, make it shift enough to jam behind the faceplate & hard to see. Just push the button and see if it pops back like the rest of the buttons on the unit. If it still has a problem, post a comment and I will help you some more. Hope this helps

Display doesnt work

Had the same problem for literally years... finally looked it up and found some simple things to try...
1. Rubbing alcohol and q-tips: Clean the sensors on the base unit AND the face.
2. Thumb tack and the reset button: Remove the face and push the reset button with the tack. I heald it down for about 15 seconds. Here's the manual if you need help finding the reset button.

Turned the car on and it worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Buttons do not work on face plate but CD and volume dial do

the problem your having is from the buttons wearing out over time and the only way to fix the problem is to replace the face plate or the whole radio.

I have the MP-283 Model and the directions are poor not doubt,
I too was also having trouble with the DEMO mode and clock adjustment.

I put the stereo in standby mode, then press and hold the control knob for 2 seconds, then release and press the bass boost/ menu button, this shold open up all the options of the setero by using the control knob up/down to scroll through the various adjustments.

CD stuck in tray for DXZ648RMP player

Figure out what fuse controls the CD player and pull the fuse out for a minute (or more), then replace it (theory being that the fuse acts as a reset button). If you cannot find the fuse, you can disconnect the negative battery cable, but you'll lose your radio and other settings. This trick seems to have the greatest chance of success overall.
Turn your ignition on to the accessory position. Hold the eject button down for 2 or 3 minutes. Depending on your make/model, the eject button may flash. When the button stops flashing (or when a few minutes has passed), release the button and immediately press it again (theory being that the two minutes of "work" followed by a quick break will fool the player into releasing the disc when you press the eject button again).
Try using some tweezers, needle nose pliers or hemostats (every tool kit needs a hemostat or two!) to pull the CD out while pressing the eject button with power going to the player (theory being that the disc is so slick the player can't eject it without help). Some people report success just by pulling the disc out with the tweezers without power to the player and without pressing the eject button.
If your player has a small hole in the front of it, like most personal computer CD players do, straighten a paperclip and push the clip straight into the hole to manually release the catch. Some players have a groove under the CD door instead of a hole. Look for a hole about the size of the paperclip and don't mistake an emergency release hole for an earphone jack.

NO Power

Hi. You need to check a few things. make sure you have power on both the red and yellow wire with the key one. If only one has power the radio will not work. also make sure that you have a good ground connection on the black wire.. if nothing works yes you probhably have a bad radio. the dual brand radios are notorious for poor solder connections on the mainboard due to the way they build thier cheap circuit boards..
