WARNING
WARNING
The exclamation point within an equilateral
triangle and "WARNING" are intended to alert
the user to the presence of important operating
instructions.
Failure to heed the instructions will result in
severe injury or death.
CAUTION
The exclamation point within an equilateral
triangle and "CAUTION" are intended to alert the
user to the presence of important operating
instructions.
Failure to heed the instructions can result in
injury or material damage.
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.
DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS.
Doing so may lead to accident, fire or electric shock.
Blocking them may cause heat to build up inside and may
result in fire.
KEEP SMALL ARTICLES OUT OF THE REACH OF
CHILDREN.
If swallowed, consult a physician immediately.
USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN
REPLACING FUSES.
STOP THE VEHICLE IF UNIT OPERATION MIGHT
INTERFERE WITH DRIVING.
PRECAUTIONS
Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.
Temperature
HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS.
Be sure the temperature inside the vehicle is between
+60°C (+140°F) and –10°C (+14°F) before turning your
unit on.
When problems occur such as a lack of sound or video,
foreign objects inside the unit, smoke coming out, or
noxious odors, stop use immediately and contact the
dealer where you bought the equipment. Failure to do so
may result in an accident or injury.
DO NOT OPERATE THE EQUIPMENT OR LOOK AT
THE SCREEN WHILE DRIVING THE VEHICLE.
Moisture Condensation
You may notice the CD playback sound wavering due to
condensation. If this happens, remove the disc from the
player and wait about an hour for the moisture to
evaporate.
Operating the equipment may distract the driver from
looking ahead of the vehicle and cause accident. Always
stop the vehicle in a safe location before operating this
equipment.
Damaged Disc
DO NOT RAISE THE VOLUME EXCESSIVELY.
Maintenance
Keep the volume at a level where you can still hear
outside noises while driving. Driving while unable to hear
outside noises could be the cause of accident.
If you have problems, do not attempt to repair the unit
yourself. Return it to your Alpine dealer or the nearest
Alpine Service Station for servicing.
Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged
discs. Playing a bad disc could severely damage the
playback mechanism.
DO NOT USE THIS EQUIPMENT FOR PURPOSES
OTHER THAN STATED FOR THE VEHICLE.
Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury.
DO NOT PLACE FOREIGN OBJECTS IN INSERTION
SLOTS OR GAPS.
Do not insert hands, fingers or foreign objects in the disc
or cassette insertion slots, or in gaps during monitor
startup/storage. Doing so may result in personal injury or
damage to the equipment.

Never Attempt the Following
Installation Location
Do not grip or pull out the disc while it is being pulled
back into the player by the automatic reloading
mechanism.
Do not attempt to insert a disc into the unit when the unit
power is off.
Make sure the CDM-7857RB/CDE-7855RB/CDE7854RM/CDE-7854R will not be installed in a location
subjected to:
•
•
•
•
Direct sun and heat
High humidity and water
Excessive dust
Excessive vibrations
Handling the Detachable Front Panel
• Do not expose to rain or water.
• Do not drop or apply shock.
Inserting Discs
Your player accepts only one disc at a time for playback.
Do not attempt to load more than one disc.
Make sure the label side is facing up when you insert the
disc. Your player will automatically eject any disc that is
inserted incorrectly. If the player continues to eject a
correctly inserted disc, push the Reset switch (located
behind the detachable front panel) with a pointed object
such as a ball-point pen.
Playing a disc while driving on a very bumpy road may
result in skips, but this will not scratch the disc or damage
the player.
Correct Handling
Do not drop the disc while handling. Hold the disc by its
edge so that no fingerprints are left on the surface. Do not
affix tape, paper, or gummed labels to the disc. Do not
write on the disc.
FR
CORRECT
ES
INCORRECT
CORRECT
New Discs
As a protective measure to prevent the CD from jamming,
the CD player will automatically eject discs with irregular
surfaces or inserted incorrectly. When a new disc is
inserted into the player and ejected after initial loading,
using your finger, feel around the inside of the centre hole
and outside edge of the disc. If you feel any small bumps
or irregularities, this could inhibit proper loading of the
disc. To remove the bumps, rub the inside edge of the hole
and outside edge of the disc with a ball-point pen or other
such instrument, then insert the disc again.

Disc Cleaning
Fingerprints, dust, or soil on the surface of the disc could
cause the CD player to skip. For routine cleaning, wipe
the playing surface with a clean, soft cloth from the centre
of the disc to the outer edge. If the surface is heavily
soiled, dampen a clean, soft cloth in a solution of mild
neutral detergent before cleaning the disc.

Irregular Shaped Discs
Be sure to use round shape discs only for this unit and
never use any special shape discs.
Use of special shape discs may cause damage to the
mechanism.
Disc Accessories
There are various accessories available on the market for
protecting the disc surface and improving sound quality.
However, most of them will influence the thickness and/or
diameter of the disc. Using such accessories can cause the
disc to be out of standard specifications and may create
operational problems. We recommend not using these
accessories on discs played in Alpine CD players.

• When a traffic information broadcast starts,
the unit automatically mutes the CD player/
changer or the regular FM broadcast.
• When the traffic information broadcast
finishes, the unit automatically returns to the
original source play before the traffic
information broadcast began.
When traffic information stations cannot be
received:
In the tuner mode:
When the TP signal can no longer be received
for over 1 minute, the "T.INFO" indicator blinks.
In the CD mode:
When the TP signal can no longer be received,
the traffic information station of another
frequency will be selected automatically.
NOTE
The receiver is equipped with the EON (Enhanced
Other Networks) function in order to keep track of
additional alternate frequencies to the AF list. The EON
indicator appears while an RDS EON station is being
received. If the station being received does not
broadcast the traffic information, the receiver
automatically tunes in the related station that
broadcasts the traffic information when it occurs.
PTY (Programme Type) Tuning

displayed for 2 seconds.
When the traffic information broadcast is over, the
unit will automatically set in the standby mode.
NOTES
• If the traffic information broadcast signal falls below a
certain level, the unit remains in the receiving mode
for 1 minute. If the signal remains below a certain
level for over 1 minute, the "T.INFO" indicator blinks.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit,
please read pages 2 and 3 of this manual
thoroughly for proper use.
Precautions
• Be sure to disconnect the negative cable from the
(–) pole of the battery before connecting your
CDM-7857RB/CDE-7855RB/CDE-7854RM/CDE7854R to avoid short circuits.
• Use the correct ampere rating when replacing fuses.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.
• Be sure to connect the leads correctly according to
the diagram. Otherwise malfunctioning of the unit
and/or damage to the vehicle may occur.
• Be sure to connect the speaker (–) leads to the
speaker (–) terminal. Never connect left and right
channel speaker cables to each other or to the
vehicle body.
• Use only vehicles with a 12 volt negative (–)
ground. Check with your dealer if you are not sure.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.
• You must be very careful when connecting wires to
the vehicle’s electrical system. Be sure you do not
use leads of factory installed components (like an onboard computer). When connecting CDM-7857RB/
CDE-7855RB/CDE-7854RM/CDE-7854R to the fuse
box, make sure the fuse for the intended circuit of
the CDM-7857RB/CDE-7855RB/CDE-7854RM/
CDE-7854R has the appropriate amperage. Failure
to do so may result in damage to the unit and/or the
vehicle. When in doubt, consult your ALPINE dealer.
• The CDM-7857RB/CDE-7855RB/CDE-7854RM/
CDE-7854R uses female RCA-type jacks for
connection to other units (e.g. amplifier) having
RCA connections. You may need an adaptor to
connect other units. If so, please contact your
authorized ALPINE dealer for assistance.
