I got the Alpine CDA9853 headunit, and I can't seem to store any radio stations. I've followed the instructions, not that I would need to because it's self-explanatory.
I chose my station and held a preset channel for more than two seconds, theoretically it should store it (a beep or a flash should confirm this), but nothing happens, even after holding onto a channel for around 10secs.
By the way, I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with the wiring because the unit remembers what station I was listening to after I switch off the car. But I'm not the most technical person in the world, so maybe I'm wrong.
Also, is there a way of turning up/down bass and treble like the other Alpine models i.e. CDA9857, 9850, etc. rather than going into Menu and finding what I want (it takes loads of time!).
It's just that I've played around with the 9857 and 9850 models and I find the quick selection of bass and treble very convinient and easy to use.
I believe the 9853 has a built in EQ, meaning that there isn't just a bass and treble setting but a frequency setting. I'm not sure about this but the 9855 has a built-in EQ. To set the EQ, hold down the "Menu" button for a few seconds and the parameter menus will come up. Here you can set cross-over points, time adjustments, and Equalizer settings.
Hope this helps!
