Hi, i droped the face for the head unit on the floor, it didnt seem to be broken until i put it in, it plays music but the face does not work, none of the lights work, cant change the volume, track and it wont eject the CD, but it still plays music, my head unit always turns on when i plug it into the dash. can this problem be repaired, can i buy another face form alpine or do i have to buy the whole new system.

Yes, I'm sure Alpine will sell you another face but there is still the option of repairing the broken face at a good repair shop. Of course getting a new face is the easiest (read most expensive) way to get you going again.
Hi, paul, ive had no luck in repairing the problem, if it still plays DONT RESET IT!!! this will turn the unit off totally,
ive brought a whole new face plate from alpine for £135, should be cheaper now, the head unit is worth it, i didnt want another unit as my whole car set up around this one,
If you press down on the middle of the glide touch and hold it for 3 seconds that should get the faceplate to reset. and if that doesn't work their is a reset button on the faceplace just above the volume control

Remove the face, and trimring plastic. There are slots on either side that you put the Alpine unlocking keys into (came with your headunit new) then slide the chassis out. If you don't have keys - you can use a small allen wrench - or buy them at best buy etc. A local alpine dealer will probably let you borrow his keys as a good business practice.

ok when you look at the front of your system there is a button that has a (F) on it press and hold tell stuff comes on the screen then just keep pressing it tell you get to AUX off you should get it from there hope this helps
i have that same problem. when i turn the volume up, it shuts off but comes back on right away. the only thing i can think of is i'm not running the constant power directly from the positive terminal on the battery (which is what is recommended). not sure if thats the solution but im gonna try and wire it right anyway...
