Question about Alpine CDA-9857 CD Player
Sometimes this Alpine stereo will lose all sound. Everything works just fine, but the sound is lost. If I turn the car off and then back on, the sound works fine. No certain amount of time for the sound to be lost. Sometimes right away, sometimes it will stay on for awhile. Any suggestions? Thanks.

The manual appears to only be available in Japanese. Sorry. http://www.alpine.co.jp/alpine/owners/oml_images/pdf/mda-w779jb_om02.pdf I have however been able to badly translate the japanese for the clock setting - check page 50 of the manual (page 17 of the pdf file). It reads: To set the Time: keep pushing "Disp 1" until you get the time set mode (possibly means 'hold down' not keep pressing) press "Clk Adj" for 2 seconds or more and the time blinks If you push "H" within 5 seconds you can adjust the time. push "M" to change the values, then if you leave it for 5 seconds it is set. The first footnote says this directly translated - sorry I have no idea what they mean on this one (i think carries means saves in this case)- "When liking to adjust to time signal, when ?the time? ?, CT? is pushed after the setting ?amount? indication becomes with ?00?. ?: When indicating which exceeds 30? when ?CT? is pushed, ?the time? it carries" Second footnote says this; You can do this procedure starting from any mode. Hopefully, with the pictures in the manual to show you which buttons they are talking about, this can get your clock set. If so, then if you want to try and translate other parts of the book, just copy and past it bit by bit into; http://translate.google.com/translate_t?langpair=ja|en seems quite good as these things go. Hope this helps, if not please ask again and tell me what you got trying the above procedure. :)

If you had to connect the remote amp turn on lead from the headunit to the factory amp turn on lead you may find your problem there.
On many headunits there are 2 blue remote wires 1 for antenna and one for amp turn on. The antenna remote only supplies power when the radio is playing not when playing CD's. If you hooked the antenna wire to the amp trigger then the amps shut down when you play a cd. If that's not it let me know and I will research further.

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.
Hope this helps.

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.

The display can be blacked out on the 9857r. To toggle between display on and display off hold the function button until it beeps.
