Can i simply connect my ipod to the brain of my Alpine cva-1005?? Do i have to get the Alpine KCA-121B which will allow me to play my i pod but not my cd changer. I actually already connected the ipod straight into the brain but i don't think it sounded the same???

You can bench test it by hooking up powers and ground to a battery (12 volt) and use a speaker to one set of speaker wires at a time. Even a 12 volt cordless drill battery will work. Should only take a few minutes. You just won't get reception to radio stations without an antennae.
For a dvd player, you would simply need to connect the A/V Cables (red, white, yellow A/V connects) from dvd player to your alpine.Simply press PWR/SRC until you see AUX and you can now listen and watch from your dvd player. About the ipod, i am not sure.
Look like the surface mount Capactors on the monitors circuit board have dried up. Open the monitors main housing ( not the screen side ) and pull out the circuit board that connects up to power and main brain cable. Look at the silver capacitors solder legs and if you see any that have corrosion then they have leaked out their acid and are faulty. Replace all if you want the job done right.
Get a TR-7 device from ebay. for 20 bucks it will bypass the parking break by issuing the correct sequence allowing you to view video while driving. However, remember many states outlaw this type of operation. They are specifically designed for the CVA1005 though.
I've got an Alpine CVA1004 and use my ipod on the aux input of the headunit. The alpine-ipod interface was too confusing for me, with the ipod connected to the aux input, I just control the music from the Ipod, I find it easier that way.
