Alpine CDA-9805 head unit - frequency hops

When head unit is turned on...everything works fine for a bit, then the frequency hops around. Example (Tuned to 106.5 FM, then all of sudden frequency hops around, but still displays 106.5) After a short bit the original signal comes back on. I've check the antenna and its good.

Sure could use some advise.

Intermittent power to head unit

no inline fuse? I usually just slip the wire inside the battery connector, remove connector lay wire across battery with stripped end running up the side of the battery terminal place connector down on terminal and wire, tighten connector back up.

My display stays on for about 3 seconds then it turns off until

Hi there,
If this model has a detachable faceplate,
Remove the faceplate and clean down the contacts with metho and a cotton bud. 
Over time usually corrosion and dirt etc builds up on these terminals making them loose cotact when you touch the faceplate.
This is the most commonly known problem alpine units.
Other common problems is the power supply failing /amplifier.
Hope this helps you out

No sound from my 9855 alpine

There is an option in the unit itself to turn off the internal amplifier. If you push the 'menu' button, then go to the setup/settings menu, and then i believe it was under the 'general settings' tab. there's a option called INT IC or something. Make sure that is turned on.
