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.
Damaged Disc
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERY OUT OF
THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged
discs. Playing a bad disc could severely damage the
playback mechanism.
Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If

2-EN
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 CDA-7965/CDA-7864/CDA-7863/CDA7862 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
Correct Handling
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 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.
Do not drop the disc while handling. Hold the disc so you
will not leave fingerprints on the surface. Do not affix
tape, paper, or gummed labels to the disc. Do not write on
the disc.
CORRECT
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.
Bumps
Outside
(Bumps)
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.

manual thoroughly for proper use.
Warning
MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS.
Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire
or product damage.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE
GROUND.
Caution
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY
EXPERTS.
The wiring and installation of this unit requires special
technical skill and experience. To ensure safety, always
contact the dealer where you purchased this product to
have the work done.
USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL
THEM SECURELY.
(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do
so may result in fire, etc.
Be sure to use only the specified accessory parts. Use of
other than designated parts may damage this unit internally
or may not securely install the unit in place. This may cause
parts to become loose resulting in hazards or product failure.
BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM
THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL.
ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR
PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE.
Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due
to electrical shorts.
Route the cables and wiring away from moving parts (like
the seat rails) or sharp or pointed edges. This will prevent
crimping and damage to the wiring. If wiring passes through
a hole in metal, use a rubber grommet to prevent the wire's
insulation from being cut by the metal edge of the hole.
DO NOT ALLOW CABLES TO BECOME ENTANGLED
IN SURROUNDING OBJECTS.
Arrange wiring and cables in compliance with the manual
to prevent obstructions when driving. Cables or wiring
that obstruct or hang up on places such as the steering
wheel, gear lever, brake pedals, etc. can be extremely
hazardous.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH
MOISTURE OR DUST.
DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.
Precautions
Never cut away cable insulation to supply power to other
equipment. Doing so will exceed the current carrying
capacity of the wire and result in fire or electric shock.
DO NOT DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN
DRILLING HOLES.
When drilling holes in the chassis for installation, take
precautions so as not to contact, damage or obstruct pipes,
fuel lines, tanks or electrical wiring. Failure to take such
precautions may result in fire.
DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR
STEERING SYSTEMS TO MAKE GROUND
CONNECTIONS.
Bolts or nuts used for the brake or steering systems (or
any other safety-related system), or tanks should NEVER
be used for installations or ground connections. Using
such parts could disable control of the vehicle and cause
fire etc.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BOLTS OR
SCREWS OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If
swallowed, consult a physician immediately.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WHICH MIGHT
HINDER VEHICLE OPERATION, SUCH AS THE
STEERING WHEEL OR GEARSHIFT.
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper
movement etc. and results in serious accident.
22-EN
Avoid installing the unit in locations with high incidence
of moisture or dust. Moisture or dust that penetrates into
this unit may result in product failure.
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post
before installing your CDA-7965/CDA-7864/CDA-7863/
CDA-7862. This will reduce any chance of damage to the
unit in case of a short-circuit.
• Be sure to connect the color coded leads according to the
diagram. Incorrect connections may cause the unit to
malfunction or damage to the vehicle's electrical system.
• When making connections to the vehicle's electrical system,
be aware of the factory installed components (e.g. on-board
computer). Do not tap into these leads to provide power for
this unit. When connecting the CDA-7965/CDA-7864/
CDA-7863/CDA-7862 to the fuse box, make sure the fuse
for the intended circuit of the CDA-7965/CDA-7864/CDA7863/CDA-7862 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 CDA-7965/CDA-7864/CDA-7863/CDA-7862 uses
female RCA-type jacks for connection to other units (e.g.
amplifier) having RCA connectors. You may need an
adaptor to connect other units. If so, please contact your
authorized ALPINE dealer for assistance.
• 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.
IMPORTANT
Please record the serial number of your unit in the
space provided below and keep it as a permanent
record. The serial number plate is located on the

To prevent external noise from entering the audio system.
• Locate the unit and route the leads at least 10 cm away from the car harness.
• Keep the battery power leads as far away from other leads as possible.
• Connect the ground lead securely to a bare metal spot (remove the coating if necessary) of the car chassis.
• If you add an optional noise suppressor, connect it as far away from the unit as possible. Your Alpine dealer carries
various Alpine noise suppressors, contact them for further information.
• Your Alpine dealer knows best about noise prevention measures so consult your dealer for further information.
