I know this is a little late but I have one and the hookup is very easy, On the right side of the amp there is a six pin plug. Above it it says BATT REMOTE GND. The two pins below BATT are the battery (V+). The pin below REMOTE is the (V+) switched turn on. The two pins below GND are the ground. The rest is simple. Two RCA inputs. The switch to select MONO(R), STEREO, or MONO(L) works as explained. If you want stereo, put the switch in the middle and supply two inputs and two speakers. The MONO(R) and MONO(L) are to select a single input that will supply a single (bridged) output. Connect two speakers and they will supply the same source or connect one speaker to the outer speaker terminals for higher power output. The variable or fixed switch just bypasses the GAIN CONTROL knobs(used for Alpine's 8 pin DIN plug on unit, for older EQ's and head units.

You definitely need a harness just to get the radio to play. Call alpine and see what kind of harness you need, then find one on ebay. You might be able to find a manual on their website in a PDF and download it.

Cannot clear error code 3523 for Kodak ESP 9200 Series all in one printer. Have followed all instructions per Kodak online

Had the same problem error 3523 that would not clear. Tried Kodak support with no results so took matters into my own hands.

Noticed the top tray seemed jammed into the printer. Tried pulling it out but it seemed locked. Flipped the printer over, removed 8 screws, 4 metal plates.

Removed bottom tray, set aside. Remove 3 screws for plastic bracket that holds top tray. Move bracket over, be careful not to damage wires. Remove top tray and reinstall so that it is in extended position. There is two notched in the side of the top tray. Extend so that catch is in back notch.

Reassemble everything in reverse order. Take care that the top tray does not slide into the printer when you turn the printer over. It did for me the first time that the tray jammed again.

Replug everything and startup the printer with top tray extended past bottom tray. The printer will tell you that top tray is jammed, push top tray flush with bottom tray.

Printer now works. Don't know why tray jams in the first place but this solution can keep you from scrapping printer or paying for service.

Very disappointed with Kodak printer. Obviously printers were not their core business and they paid a sub-contractor to build these products for them. My next printer will be an HP.

Hi i have brought a second hand car, which was fitted with an Alpine cda9830r stereo, but no user manual, i have found one for a cda9830 stereo, is there a lot of difference in the two, as i have amps,...

Hi stephen my names Josh. Its great you could find a second hand manual for the cda9830 and theres not any difference your manual will tell you need to know about the cda9830r as well. Your amp hook up will be very standard speakers and sub will match very well with the that alpine in your car.

Alpine IXA-W404 how do i can't get video to play. I didn't connect the hand brake wire and the footbrake wire, would that be the cause and if so how do I get past it??

You need to connect the yellow/black wire to the brake switch and the yellow/blue wire to the ground wire on the hand brake. After that you have to go through the task of holding down the foot brake, pull the hand brake, release the hand brake, pull the hand brand then release the foot brake.

after all that then you can watch your video. You will want to connect those wires so you can setup your system.
