When mine did this I opened the face up and figured out that the volume down button switch had a broken contact which made the volume and the first 3 station presets freak out. It took me about a half hour - 45 min. to fix it (since I had to diagnose it first) Won't cost a dime if you fix it this way...

First figure out if one of your volume buttons doesn't feel right when you press it (it doesn't 'click' or act like the rest of the buttons do)

When you open the face you 'll see all of the white switches (small boxes with silver surrounding the button on the top) take a tiny flathead electronics or eyeglass screwdriver (or something like that) use it to "pry" up the silver piece that surrounds the button (The edges on each end have a 'lip' that holds this metal piece down & you might need a magnifying glass depending on your eyesight.)
It will bend but you can flatten it back out.
Once it's off - the button will come out and if you look down into the 'box' of the switch you'll see a small piece of metal (the contact)
Use your small flathead screwdriver to lift it out. (or turn the circuit board over and tap it out)
it is a small rectangle piece of metal that has a 'bump' in the middle.
Check to see if the "bump" is split/broken in the middle. (mine was)

I then did this same process to the switch for the AM radio button (since I don't use it) then I took that 'contact' out since the 'bump' wasn't split and put it in the volume down switch, then I put it back together (using) the tip of the screwdriver to press the metal that was a little bent back down under the 'lips' on the edge and over the button.

Now you can put the 'face' back together and "viola"!!
It works properly, the volume doesn't freak out anymore, and you can enjoy a properly working car stereo again!

The volume is too loud......#1 is too loud to hold a conversation in the car. How can I adjust the level???


Hi there,

Typically the left or right knob should adjust the volume by turning it counter-clockwise. However, some companies need to make this a bit more advanced or difficult. If this is the case, you can try pressing the audio button on the device. If it provides you with any options on the screen, search for anything which indicates changing the volume control. (It may also be under Menu)
Once you do that you should be able to turn the sound down with either the knob on the left or the arrows on the right.

Alpine ida-x001 volume is low even if stereo is turned all the way up only when ipod is plugged in on ipod setting.Radio (AM/FM) is normal volume (louder)..How can I fix this?


Most newer car receivers have a feature named something like "level balancing" in which you can adjust the relative loudness of each input (Tuner, CD, AUX, IPOD). Check you owner's manual for a similar function.

Also, are you or can you turn the level of the ipod itself up a bit?

PCD120U volume issue


i think I know what your problem is ... if you hold down the menu/select button ( the button between the volume buttons) there will be a volume option it'll say P --- volume. I think that sets a default volume that the cd player will always reset to once the cd player is turned off then on again.

Maybe the owners manual would help. It says you can adjust the sensitivity of the AUX input through a menu. It sounds like the AUX sensitivity is just set to max. Look for the 'to change other settings' chapter, instructions are in there.
If you don't have the manual, find it on the official website.
