According to the manual for the Alpine CDE-102, the message "DC ERROR" is displayed if there is a short to ground in the speaker wiring. Check all of your speaker wires and make sure that no bare wire is shorting against the vehicle metal or against other wires. Repair or replace the wire as necessary. After correcting the problem, set POWER IC to "POW ON" according to the instructions in your manual.
