Alpine/Toyota factory stereo - contols not functioning

Toyota Custom Radio Cassette
Alpine # 7190ETC-2a
Toyota # 86120-00028

Ok, it's an old unit, but it was given to me and I was hoping a easy swap for an even older vintage Kenwood unit that died. I threw it on the bench to check it and stuck volts on, entered the security code, and that's about as far as things go. None of the push buttons seem to do anything - tune up down etc. The code appears to work as the display turns on, so at least the buttons work initially. What am I missing?

Oh, and I am competent in terms of part replacement etc if it comes to that, but it might not be worth it…

    Every switch has spring to it - I will measure them shortly though. $11.00 each? - I can source them for a lot less than that.

    Ok, I have one shorted switch - will update when I have time to repair.

  • zergrush May 04, 2008

    Ok, fixed and all good, thanks for your advice. BTW - the text in caps at the end of your response I find offensive. It's like I'm being blamed for a problem that you have and not a good introduction to this site. I'm sure it's not meant like that, but maybe you could change the wording for the future?

  • zergrush May 05, 2008

    www.merle840@aol.com - is that an email address or a web page? Anyway I can get the switches for just under $0.60 retail, and also get a good trade discount on top of that. Thanks for the offer at $11 though.

Any one of the switches could bad or any number of the switchescould be bad -----the switches i'm talking about are in back of the face plate----- this is one of the most common repairs that i have done on that model- if you want to replace the bad switch/switches they cost about $11.00 each- if you want to get them i have them in stock www.merle840@aol.com ----if you take the face off the radio check to see if the switches have any spring to them( they probably won't ) the ones that do are good the rest are bad

I bought a '96 Mustang with an Alpine CHM 5620 CD player already installed. The unit appears in great shape and looks as if it were installed by a pro. It seems to load up the CD cartridge and change CDs...


This model of cd changer doesn't have the fm modual built into it. So I am wonder how this setup worked before. Most of these units had an FM tansmitter in them and you would just turn on your factory radio and set the fm tuner to a certain frequency like 89.5 or 91.3, not excatly sure on the right number, but somewhere low in the range. Turn on the stero and try tuning into differnet stations.

But like I said this model is desgined to be used with a aftermarket head unit with the proper wired connection going from the cd changer to the head unit.

When you say tried different radio and it didn't work, does this mean the tuner acts like it is functioning, but you hear nothing out of the speakers?

If so, this stinks of a bad ANTENNA...
