Question about Alpine CDA-7842

1 Answer

Display stopped working

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

    I replaced the faceplate with a known good unit and the problem is still present.

I have a Alpine cda 105.The display is blackout


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

Sounds like you lost the power on your memory wire (yellow) some how. Check power on both the red ad yellow and make sure that you have 12v going to both.

My alpine deck used to play burned cd's and mp3's as well but now for some reason it will only play store bought ones i was wondering if maybe i pressed a programming button on the face or maybe on my...


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.

Screen says searching when iPod connected to Alpine CDA-9847


Check your ipod to see if it is shuffle mode. Alpine doesn't document this but they have a bug that causes the problem that you describe. If the ipod is in shuffle mode the Alpine gets confused.

Peripheral's Connex2Car adapter to an Alpine CDA-9851


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.

CDA-9885 Alpine No audio from Ipod - CD Playback not working


Disconnect whatever is attached to the BLUE wire at the back of the Alpine deck. Re-connect it to the BLUE/WHITE wire instead. This should solve your problem.
