Damaged Disc
Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged
discs. Playing a bad disc could severely damage the
playback mechanism.
Maintenance
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.
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-7874/CDE-7872/CDE-7870 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 (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.
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 center 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.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please
read the following and pages 2 and 3 of this
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.
(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do
so may result in fire, etc.
BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM
THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL.
USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL
THEM SECURELY.
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.
ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR
PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE.
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.
Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due
to electrical shorts.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH
MOISTURE OR DUST.
DO NOT ALLOW CABLES TO BECOME ENTANGLED
IN SURROUNDING OBJECTS.
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.
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 SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.
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.
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.
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.
18-EN
Precautions
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post
before installing your CDM-7874/CDE-7872/CDE7870. 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 CDM7874/CDE-7872/CDE-7870 to the fuse box, make sure
the fuse for the intended circuit of the CDM-7874/CDE7872/CDE-7870 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-7874/CDE-7872/CDE-7870 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.
