A while back I started recieving a message stating "error" when inserting a CD into my alpine head unit? It seemed to start showing these symptoms sporadically and then all of a sudden it was constant and I haven't been able to play a CD once. I've tried cleaning it and reconnecting the harness to ensure the wires were connected firmly. Any other ideas?

If you have already tried resetting the Alpine INE-S920HD head unit by pressing the reset button and the CD player is still not functioning, here are a few additional steps you can take:
Check the CD: Ensure that the CD you are trying to play is in good condition and free from scratches or damage. Try playing a different CD to see if the issue persists. If the problem occurs with multiple CDs, it indicates a potential issue with the CD player itself.
Clean the CD player: Dust or dirt on the lens of the CD player can cause playback issues. Try using a CD lens cleaner to clean the lens of the CD player. Follow the instructions provided with the CD lens cleaner carefully.
Verify the disc format: Make sure the CD you are trying to play is in a compatible format supported by the Alpine INE-S920HD head unit. Refer to the user manual for the supported disc formats.
Update firmware: Check if there is a firmware update available for your Alpine head unit. Visit the Alpine website or contact their customer support for information on how to update the firmware. Updating the firmware may resolve any software-related issues that could be causing the CD player malfunction.
Seek professional assistance: If the above steps do not resolve the issue, it's recommended to seek assistance from a professional car audio technician or contact Alpine customer support directly. They have the expertise to diagnose and resolve any complex issues with the CD player or head unit.
Remember to handle CDs with care, avoid using CDs with scratches or damage, and ensure the head unit is compatible with the disc format you are using.
Sounds like it's overheating. Does this unit have a small fan in the back? If so, does it work, or is the airflow blocked? Also, you can get 'steam' on the disc when coming in or out of the cold with it.
