Zen 


HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS. 


Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage to 
the product. Return it to your authorized Alpine dealer or 
the nearest Alpine Service Center for repairing. 


/N PRECAUTIONS 


Temperature 

Be sure the temperature inside the vehicle is between 
+60°C (+140°F) and -10?C (+14°F) before turning your 
unit on. 





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. 


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 

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. 








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 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. 


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.

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. 





Installation Location 
Make sure the CDM-7871 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. 


Correct Handling 

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 





CORRECT 


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. 





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. 


A 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. 


Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due 
to electrical shorts. 


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 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. 


KEEP SM ALL 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.

A 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. 


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 CRIM PED 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 wires 
insulation from being cut by the metal edge of the hole. 


DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH 
MOISTURE OR DUST. 


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. 


Precautions 


e Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (—) battery post 
before installing your CDM-7871. This will reduce any 
chance of damage to the unit in case of a short-circuit. 

e 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 CDM- 
7871 to the fuse box, make sure the fuse for the intended 
circuit of the CDM-7871 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-7871 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. 

e 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.
