Question about Car Audio & Video
I've never used a resource like this before it's amazing!
My very-little used (meaning not worn-out!) Sony car CD stereo stopped working last night making a whirring noise when trying to load a new CD (it is a single-CD manual-change model). It accepts the CD and pulls it in as usual, holds it for a couple of seconds, then spits it back out with "1 LOAD" on the display, followed within 10 seconds by "RESET" then switches off. Hope someone can help!

SOURCE: Speakers have died?
Probaby the stereo decoder IC went bad or a supply voltage to it is too low or noisy. If it has audio output jacks on the back of the TV, connect it to an external amplifier and see what that sounds like. If it is ok in stereo or mono mode then the amplifier in the TV is bad. This will prove that the stereo decoder is ok.

SOURCE: CD Stuck inside player
Depending on the make of the stereo it will have a 2 piece casing which will allow you to take one part off , normally the lid by removing a couple of small screws or the lid maybe even clipped onto the lower case. Once the lid is off you should be able to get the cd out. If the stereo is security coded do not disconnet it from the electric supply unless you have the code!

Sorry but the ipod should never "die" when it's plugged in. I own this system and have encountered the same problem. The ipod should be continuously charging if plugged in, therefore it should never run out of juice.
Things I've been told to do f rom Alpine themselves:
-Get latest version of ipod software from itunes
-Plug ipod back into unit (via cord) with car turned off
-hold the center button and play button until ipod resets itself
-take off alpine face
-press the little button behind face to reset unit
I have done this with some success. The problem returned once in a while, however, for some reason after doing the process listed again a few months back, I've not had the error.

This is not a fuse problem, it may be a dirty laser lens or a broken loading mechanism, buy a CD player cleaner disk, if that won't work you will have to pull the unit out and send it in for repair at an authorized GM electronics repair station.

i was playing around with one of those code generators just the other day and after some messing around it turned out the code to enter was the last four digits of the number below the barcode; if there are 2 barcodes, use the bottom one
