The problem is the rotary encoder (volume knob) has a small internal insulator the breaks and allows contact. I repaired mine by replacing the component with one from Newark electronics, part # 02J2846, it is a Bourns rotary encoder part# PEC11-4215F-S0024. Simple solder skills and care are all that are needed and i think it is a slightly more durable component.
are you listing to cd or everything? do you have amplifiers? i found that when my pre outs were going bad my hole radio would cut out when i hit bumps. also some decks dont do well on bumps with their cd players. maybe try straping all of the wires in the back to a sable source on the car to reduce the stress on the plug ins when hitting bumps.
Hi there, If this model has a detachable faceplate, Remove the faceplate and clean down the contacts with metho and a cotton bud. Over time usually corrosion and dirt etc builds up on these terminals making them loose cotact when you touch the faceplate. This is the most commonly known problem alpine units. Other common problems is the power supply failing /amplifier. Hope this helps you out Cheers Steve
If song tracks jump or skip then it is problem of cd player like optical laser is dirty / clogged, and if track doesn't jump or restarts in middle of playing back then cd player is just fine, Please check cd creator software settings.
Does it cut out when you are listening to the tuner as well as the cd player? If so, you have a bad connection somewhere. Sometimes the solder joints inside the radio can be cracked and will cut out when you hit bumps. May be a wire that is a little loose. Check all the wiring.
If it only cuts out when you are listening to the CD player, you may need the lens cleaned or the laser replaced. Sometimes the cd player cuts out because the unit has too much wiggle room and it bounces a little when you hit a bump causing the cd to skip or cut out. and there is always the dirty CD. Try cleaning the CD's with windex and a soft cloth like a bath towel. It works great for me and is cheap. Fingerprints can and will cause a cd player to skip.
Is this a new installation or did it just start happening without anyone changing any wiring? If it is a new installiation make sure you have the remote turn on connected to the remote turn on wire from the radio(blue and white) and not the power antenna wire (blue). The blue wire will turn off when you switch to cd while the blue and white will not.
