    I`ve got a problem with my alpine cda-9855r,because the display doesn`t work and all the rest does work properly

  • Anonymous Nov 03, 2008

    The only fix is if you buy the biolite display from alpine...i rang them up and it cost about £110...including vat. To replace, it should be fairly straight forward, but you will need a soldering iron as the alpine display are soldered to the board, not the electric connectors but the mounts that hold it in place...the electric connection is done by a ribbon and this is just pull and push back in.
    The display is a fault on all biolite screens, ina-n333r, rr, rrs, 9855 etc etc. Considering how much the ina units are worth (about £1200 when they first came out), its still very cheap to replace the display yourself with a new one or get alpine to do it for £90...i have received feedback that the alpine techs do an amazing job!....on the 9855 and other mp3/cd units, it would be cheaper to write off the unit and learn from your mistake of buying one in the first place. As I said, the INA units are probably the best of both worlds in navigation, mp3/cd systems and it also have a brillant tuner with built in TMC,,,,so its worth every penny. Guys, dont try and look for other ways of fixing it as you might create more damage to your units. When you get if fixed, it should give you service for another 3 years depending on use, and if alpine has sorted the fault out with their replacement might be an idea to pass a constant 12V to the illumination circuit so that its always in dim/night mode ...hence preserving/burning at half rate.
    Hope this helps..

Most receivers are designed to play most audio codecs. They will play MP3/CDA/FLAC/WMA and others. Most are not capable of reading and playing the various video codecs out there.

I read the manual and found out that the reason the track title information does not display is because you need to set the text scroll setting to manual.

Alpine CDA-7865R won't play CD and won't eject it either.

On the face, where the buttons are that control the tilt of the face there is a small reset button (In between). I pressed this whilst the unit was off, and when I switched it on again, the CD started playing but I couldn't tilt the face and eject the CD, so I hit the reset button again and it all worked!

My ALPINE radio says that is i pod ready. how does that work

Your Alpine is Ipod ready meaning once you get the Ipod cable you can control an Ipod through your radio. It plugs into the back of your radio and then the other end you plug into your Ipod. You can probably buy an Ipod cable from where ever you bought your radio or any other Alpine dealer. I hope I could help.
