I have the same deck and a very similar problem. Mine was stuck in the out position and would beep and move a little but there was no lights or music. I called Alpine and they told me that sometimes the inner sleeve around the deck will pinch the unit a little. I took my unit out of the dash and sure enough the plastic face plate came loose and moved about 1/32 of an inch when I slide it back in place and turned the power back on it worked perfectly. Hope this helps.

Instructions
    • 1Remove the faceplate around your stereo. Slip a flat object under the edge and gently pry it up. A flat-head screwdriver works well. There will be clips holding the faceplate in place, so feel for them. You may need to move your faceplate up or down to slide it out of position.
    • 2 Find and remove any screws holding the stereo in place.
    • 3 Slide the stereo component out far enough to see the label on top of the stereo. Write down the model and serial numbers of your car stereo component.
    • 4 Locate your VIN number at the base of the front window, driver side. If you can't read your VIN off the window, you will have it on your proof of insurance and title as well. Write it down.
    • 5 Locate your car manufacturer's toll-free Customer Service number and call them. Click on the link in the Resource section of this article and find your car manufacturer's toll-free number.
    • 6 Call the number and let customer service know you need your stereo code and have the vehicle's VIN number, as well as the model and serial numbers off the stereo. They will provide you with the code. If you are unsure how to input the code, be sure to ask for support at this time.

Unable to remove faceplate or eject cd on kenwood


remove the to of the unit, then the two in the actual cd player, pull out cd player, there will be two more screws,these hold the faceplate assembly in place, remove them. This will allow you to pull a small plastic hook down to let the face plate slide out. then remove the face plate from it's holder, slide it out. Remove the four screws on the back of the faceplate inside the there is a very small piece of plastic that has a hole at one end and squared at the other. This is the problem causing piece. I suggest super gluing this piece where it attaches to the inside of the faceplate. This should fix the problem.

I don't have the manual to show how to uninstall the unit


Here's a link to the manual, but there's nothing in it about the installation process. It's a standard DIN sleeve mounting though, so any car parts store can sell you an inexpensive install/deinstall kit.

Once you remove the face place and the bezel around the faceplate, you insert the long narrow keys from the kit on each side to release the unit from it's sleeve. When they're in place, the unit will slide forward and right out.

Face wont open


if you have already tried hitting the reset button you should first remove the faceplate and check the contacts on the main unit and the back of the faceplate. if they are dirty clean them (with power off) with contact cleaner or a small eraser. if your lucky that will fix the problem but most likely you have a bad ribbon cable. this cable attaches the faceplate contacts to the main unit and flexes as the face tilts. after time these cables get small cracks that may not be visible. you can usualy buy the part from a place like pacparts.com and replace it to solve your problem.

Keeps losing power


The faceplate may have a bent pin, or is not fully clicking into place.

Before getting all worked up, try pressing the release button to remove the face plate and carefully inspecting the areas where they click into the main unit, small pieces of debris may be stuck in the clips, if this is not the case, carefully re-insert the face plate, making sure to have aligned the guides before pressing the face plate back into place. You should hear a nice confirming click when the face plate is in place.

Bent pin or contact, can easily be spotted by grabbing a magnifying glass and looking at the allignment of each pin, take extra care when straightening the pin if this is the case.

**Tip**
Most solutions can come from closer inspection ...
ie: with a magnifying glass.

Display is OUT but everything functions....... what to do?


The problem is not the faceplate for any of you, it is inside the main unit. If you know how to solder, you can fix is very easy. First take the top off the unit, there is 1 screw in the back middle. Then take the CD player out. It has 2 screws holding it in at the front corners at the bottom of the CD deck. Use a number 2 phillips and take out the gold screws holding the CD deck in place. Then you can pull out the CD deck, and be careful not to damage the ribbon cable connected from the CD deck to the main board. The deck can just sit up and over to the left to get it out of the way for what needs to be soldered.
Look inside the main unit on the board and you will see in the front right corner a series of surface mount resistors all connected in series. Just reflow that solder on them with a small amount of new solder added and the display will once again work perfectly. That solder is very heat stressed, that is the problem. I have fixed dozens of these over the last few years. Make sure you put it back together the same as it came apart, and you are done.

Tried it and couldn't get it out.

Head Unit going goofy


If the unit has a removable face take a pencil eraser and try shining up the little contacts on the back of the face and the radio. See if that cleaning helps.

Flip Down faceplate is stuck.


I have the same problem, and all my problem was is that one of the wheels were out of place. You can see these white gears at the bottom left and right. Just stick something in there and push it back in place. It should just snap back in.
