My Alpine CDA-7842 works fine from a functional point of view but the display (readout) had stopped working. All the lights on the display work but the actual readout is blank. At first the readout would intermittently work now it's completely dead. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Hi,from your problem it seems you either have'nt gone through your manual or you don't have one,there is a particular button you can press that makes the display blackout,i think you have mistakenly hit this button that's why the display is blackout.if you do not have the manual you can download it for free at;www.manualsonline.com,www.manualnguide.com to enable you to know this particular button.
Thanks and take care
what year is your car?newer cars 1999 and up the radio wiring harness goes thru the ecm (electronic control module).if that head unit is not supported it wont work correctly.in a bad case senario the head unit could damage the ecm.
The Alpine cda-7842 was not intended to play burned cd's and Mp3's. I don't recemmend you play anything but store bought cd's. I belive that the laser can be damaged by playing Mp3's and they sometimes make weird noises because of the laser seeking erratically, due to the year that cda-7842 was manufactered.
the alpine should recognize it as a "changer" when you select the source; ie: radio, CD, changer. Sounds simple, but have you turned up the volume on the iPod?
The Alpine adapter is $100, but works great, you can totally control all your iPods functions, and it displays all song info on the Alpine decks display.
