It's common for the voltage source at the radio to be weak. Thin wiring and corroded connections create resistance in the power wiring, which results in a voltage drop when the deck's amplifier requires more current.

The easiest fix is to run a new power and ground wire directly to the battery from your radio. Depending on the length, some 14-gauge or 16-gauge speaker wire should do nicely. Connect the deck's black wire to your battery's negative terminal, and the yellow wire to the positive terminal. Put a 10-amp fuse on the wire near the positive terminal.

If your deck is wired to turn on and off through a key switch or accessory switch, then leave the deck's red wire connected as it is now; it doesn't require any significant current. Otherwise you can combine the red wire with the yellow wire and connect both to the positive terminal.

Let me know if you have any further questions

good luck

My alpine keeps shutting down when the volume is turned up past 20. Plus I have no sound coming out of my subs. I tried switching rca cables. And I sent my amp off thinking it was my amp. Their is a little...


so it turns off suddenly and then the next second it turns back on and starts playing

from that and personal expericance i belive that the radio system (radio and amp) is not reciving enough power

is this radio inside a car
if so what car

what i would do is attach bigger thicker wires to the positive and negative of the amplifier
direct from battery

positive of battery>>>> positive of amp
metal grounding point on car>>>>>> negative of amp
(do not use negative of battery use the metal of the car)

Need a alpine dvd IVA-D900R detachable face


If you cant buy one from Alpine (usually costs half the cost of head) then you might be out of luck. For the price of faceplate, youre half into a whole new unit just about!

What amplifier(s) are you using. How many, what size subwoofers and what type of enclosure are they in? What is the crossover frequency and slope? Active or passive x-over?

Volume goes away after being on for a few mins


It seems like your problem is what in the Army Signal Corp. we called "internal breakdown of components", the problem is in the audio output transistors, heat related , it works okay for a few then as soon as it starts to warm up it shuts down, the unit stays on but has little or no audio output. You will have to pull it and bring to a tech for repair or replace it,sorry.Please don't forget to rate, Thanks

Hello to you i currently own the alpine iva-D105 in my vehicle , my problem is the touch screen doesn't display anything although al of the functions work . my question to you is can i fix this...


Not a very likely scenario unless you have some good electronic troubleshooting skills. Sometimes it is the touchscreen itself, but it can also be the circuitry that drives the touchscreen. Taking them apart can also be a very tricky job. One mistake can cost you lots of extra money at the repair center. It is not a wise thing to try and fix electronics without some knowledge of how the circuits work and without the proper test equipment. I have been repairing car audio systems for nearly 18 years and have seen many people bring in things they thought they could fix themselves and it almost always would have been cheaper for them if they just brought it in to begin with.

Let me know if you need any help.

I have a Alpine CDA-9851R CD player and I cant turn the volume above 17.I have a amplifier and subwofer fitted in the boot.The problem started after one of my friends was playing with it.


this probably isnt it but my stereo got messed up like that because i think i turned it up and down way to much. maybe try pulling the volume button out and putting it back in.
