Question about Alpine Car Audio & Video
I'm having trouble with my Alpine CDE7826E cd player ( it is a few years old now but worked perfectly in the past but won't now in my new car ) where I can put in a brand new never played CD and it either ejects it immediately or it keeps it loaded but takes F O R E V E R to actually start the cd and then when you try to skip from one song to another particular track it just seems to not be able to find the start of that track so it just spins and spins and spins forever.....
How can I fix this please ???? because I'm ready to take to it with a very large hard hammer !!!

It is possible that your cd plyer is not reading the data from the disc. this could be possible if the optical head is faulty. First of all open the head unit, open the top and use a good swab to carefully clean the lens of the optical head, you will need to look carefully, do not give any pressure but just a soft wipe, if the lens had been dirty , this would clear the fault. Loaad and check if tafter loading the tracks are read. if not, look for the spindle for any dirt,if the spindle height had been changed or reduced , correct if you are careful, if all these seems right, then I ma afraid you have a deffective/weak head. It is possible to take a trimming but will require great care. Change tthe optical if you think the cost is acceptable., only with an original!! hope this helps. Good day
