    hey gang! i'm usually over in the HT forums, but this one fits here:

    a friend of mine gave me some old alpine gear a year ago: a head unit, 3 amps, an eq. the eq and amps are going in my jeep, but the HU is going in the boat.

    heres the prob: the HU comes on and says "HOT", the cd is inop, and the tuner is at a very low volume. i am assuming the HU thinks it's stolen, 'cause it aint hot here [​IMG]. i know this guy, it's not stolen. he bought all the stuff new.

    the HU is a model 7802, btw. anybody know how to reset the thing? or should i just go get another 50 dollar cheapy HU.

    mmmm....Alpines i didn't know had a ESN security like Eclipse. I don't think it means its stolen. its probably hot, check the space behind it to make sure it doesn't heat up the rear of the HU. If anything just ask a dealer.

    its not hot in either sense. its sitting on the deck of the boat, open to the world! and it comes on like that.

    i have done several searches on the web, but nada.

    anybody else? i really would like to throw this in the dash, rather than spending 50-100 bux for a cheapy cd player.

    Sounds like its faulty then :[

    "hot" is an alpine error message,from the manual it states:

    "protective circuit is activated due to high temperature,the amplifier becomes to output restriction state".

    I think you'll need to have an alpine dealer look at this unit unfortunately [​IMG]
