sup everyone, i've noticed that when my car is not warmed up there is a point at which my volume knob sticks. like it doesn't want to turn and you have to twist with extra pressure to get past that point.

should i return it? does the knob pop off so that i can maybe see whats causing it to stick?

I have noticed mine is sluggish as well, when it is cold, I just use the remote.

I would rather use the remote, than force it when its cold..

Every things expands and contracts with temp. changes... Keep that in mind.

yes, you're right, its just that the shop i bought it from is trying to say bring it by and they will look at it. well unless i drive there without the heat on the whole way it will be fine by the time i get there.

so i'm not sure how they are going to duplicate the issue...

thanks,

try turning it with just the tip of one finger, i know, i'm really obsessive compulsive. however its easiest to notice a sticking point, if there is one by doing it this way.

do you think using something like wd-40 would be a bad idea?

hmm. weird. i thought if you would of understood my screen name by now you would of actually done it instead of trying to take half *** stabs at me...

but nice try on trying to help the guy in a worthless thread. the knob sticks? go back to where you got it and get it replaced. end of story. no need to get mad because my "did you jizz on it?" post is just as worthless as your "yea mine doesnt do that at all" post.

lol...common sense would tell you that when something does it when its cold but doesnt when its "warmed up" there is something wrong with your unit ;)

At least he knows it is a problem with his unit and not a general problem with the 9887.

im not gonna bs around anymore because that is a valid point.

im just saying i would of been in a local car audio shop messing around with the other 9887's and seeing how mine works compared to them, if it was me.

i got a little OCD too...if a unit did that to me i would be in the shop until they replaced it or gave me a refund so i could buy another deck.

Excellent news, are they including somethign to send them yours back in?

nah, once my local shop gets the new one in i will drop off my current one and swap them out. my local shop does a ton of business wtih alpine and i guess that pays off in situations like this.

at first they wanted me to drive there and let the radio get cold enough so they could duplicate the issues themselves and i said that wasn't going to work for me. so they were able to just get alpine to send a new one instead.
