Hi, my alpine 7998r has just decided to give up. It's the phantom facia one, where it's supposed to slide out and up, or back in when the ignition is off. What's annoying is that it has stopped sliding out, just grrrs a bit then turns on to classic fm (which although would be good for mafia style drive-bys, is rather tiring after 3 whole days, after listening to the cd that I can't remove) due to the facia not coming out, I can't actually turn it off, turn the volume up or down, or more importantly stop feeling like I'm 70 (no offence to the more mature readers on here :) ), as I can't change the station.
Now, two questions:
1. would anyone know how to fix this, or;
2. would anyone be able to offer any advice of a different make of HU? I've had a look at the becker, but the price range is a bit out of reach
Sorry to go on, but further to this, how can i get the front speakers working, as, since I put the alpine in, they have given up the ghost?
Many thanks for trawling through this
