Just bought the cd player. i installed it myself. The radio works fine. I turn on the cd player and i get no sound but the deeck is playing the cd. I called the place i bougth it and they said it was install error. i don't understand this. If anyone can give me any advise i would appreciate it.
What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go. The same goes if your have an aftermarket amp driving your speakers.

Do you have the radio hooked up to an amplifier? If so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) to turn the amp on. The antenna remote wire turns off when leaving tuner mode.
did you check to make sure your vehicle didnt come with a factory amp, if it has one is it turning on? or did you remember to disconnect the negative battery cable while installing your radio, i know thats a dumb question, once i was installing a pioneer a barely crossed a couple wires and fried the radio, the radio itself worked fine and all the features etc, but it never did play sound again. i always disconnect the power now!!
If you are getting sound from the radio as far as listening to the radio station. It might mean that the CD player is bad. Have you tried cleaning the player to see if that works. It could be that the lens is not reading the discs. Does any codes come up or does it say error.
I would check these things out. I think that the sound system is fine. If you can hear on the radio then it is on the radio itself more or likely.
the blue line from the radio harness does not have power when the cd or aux are being used and the amp is not turning on-wire the remote line from the amp to the red line and your amp will stay on and you will get sound
