Question about Alpine CDA-9857 CD Player

Open Question

Sound is lost until car is turned off then back on

Sometimes this Alpine stereo will lose all sound. Everything works just fine, but the sound is lost. If I turn the car off and then back on, the sound works fine. No certain amount of time for the sound to be lost. Sometimes right away, sometimes it will stay on for awhile. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I just purchased the Alpine CDA-9857 one year ago, and apparently, it is toast ALREADY! I have the exact same problems that another user is having. When I turn the car on, the radio will play for some time, then stop working. Sometimes the radio will play for five seconds, sometimes for fifteen minutes, and sometimes not at all. I've already spoken to two technicians about it, and they seem to think the radio is broke already...what do you think?

SOURCE: MDA779JB Car Stereo

The manual appears to only be available in Japanese. Sorry. http://www.alpine.co.jp/alpine/owners/oml_images/pdf/mda-w779jb_om02.pdf I have however been able to badly translate the japanese for the clock setting - check page 50 of the manual (page 17 of the pdf file). It reads: To set the Time: keep pushing "Disp 1" until you get the time set mode (possibly means 'hold down' not keep pressing) press "Clk Adj" for 2 seconds or more and the time blinks If you push "H" within 5 seconds you can adjust the time. push "M" to change the values, then if you leave it for 5 seconds it is set. The first footnote says this directly translated - sorry I have no idea what they mean on this one (i think carries means saves in this case)- "When liking to adjust to time signal, when ?the time? ?, CT? is pushed after the setting ?amount? indication becomes with ?00?. ?: When indicating which exceeds 30? when ?CT? is pushed, ?the time? it carries" Second footnote says this; You can do this procedure starting from any mode. Hopefully, with the pictures in the manual to show you which buttons they are talking about, this can get your clock set. If so, then if you want to try and translate other parts of the book, just copy and past it bit by bit into; http://translate.google.com/translate_t?langpair=ja|en seems quite good as these things go. Hope this helps, if not please ask again and tell me what you got trying the above procedure. :)

SOURCE: alpine 9881 cd will not play sound

If you had to connect the remote amp turn on lead from the headunit to the factory amp turn on lead you may find your problem there.

On many headunits there are 2 blue remote wires 1 for antenna and one for amp turn on. The antenna remote only supplies power when the radio is playing not when playing CD's. If you hooked the antenna wire to the amp trigger then the amps shut down when you play a cd. If that's not it let me know and I will research further.

SOURCE: i get power to the stereo but no sound comes out

Hello eklypss2000,

According to the manual for the Alpine CDE-102, the message "DC ERROR" is displayed if there is a short to ground in the speaker wiring. Check all of your speaker wires and make sure that no bare wire is shorting against the vehicle metal or against other wires. Repair or replace the wire as necessary. After correcting the problem, set POWER IC to "POW ON" according to the instructions in your manual.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: No sound from my 9855 alpine

There is an option in the unit itself to turn off the internal amplifier. If you push the 'menu' button, then go to the setup/settings menu, and then i believe it was under the 'general settings' tab. there's a option called INT IC or something. Make sure that is turned on.

Installed Alpine CDE-121 in May, has worked great up until now. System works, but no sound comes out


Some models of some vehicles have a power amplifier that is separate from the head unit. You did not specify what you have your Alpine installed in but you may find the "no sound" issue involves a separate power amp.

Sometimes when you jump off a truck the CD player fuse will blow because it was trying to turn on each time you turned over the engine. Check all the fuses.

The amp wires only go to the rear output (rca jacks on back of cd player)
It wont work right if it is connected to the front outputs on the back of cd player

Minimal sound output


Very well could be your amp setup. The only reason you would get lound sound from the stereo is if the mute is on or the audio outputs are fried. have you tried to hook up the stereo directly to a single speaker?

Older Alpine car stereo light problem


It's probably a solder in lamp. They can tend to be very tiny. About the size of the head of a paper match or smaller. If you're not good with soldering then I would suggest you go to a repair shop and let them do it. Good luck.
