View Full Version : Alpine CD player problem
10-05-2008, 02:06 PM
I have had this unit for several years and have put it in two different vehicles with zero problems. Well I took it from a car and it sat on a shelf for a few months and now I am putting it in my Ranger. Its an Alpine CDE-7859. The thing simply doesn't come on. Power is there as is ground. I have evn tried running it directly to the battery and no dice. I have to trash the thing, but unless somebody has some suggestions I guess it's the trash or eBay as the faceplate is good with a few scratches. I have opened the case and it doesn't look like there is a fuse in there, but I didn't do any dis-assembly.

check the back of the radio for a fuse, or if the power lead is still connected there should be a fuse there also.

Nope. No fuse. I am thinking it's toast.

according to the manual theres a pinhole sized reset switch. remove the face and you should see it. it should be red. press it and post your results.
the manual also says to check the fuse on the battery lead of the unit. i have no idea where that is.
you can download the manual here:

I'll be damn, there is a tiny red button. I will see if that fixes it.
EDIT: DING DING DING!!! We have a winner! Thanks for the tip.

ahh good old trusty alpine you can never go wrong with them they never break.
my guess is it could be some safety feature cause i know i had the same problem when i changed my alpine from car to car.
