I have the same thing that happens to my 9813. It is about 5 years old and has gotten heavy use.

The only thing that I have noticed is it will play music only after it has been sitting for a while (like 4-6 hours) without being on. On my way into work it plays, but then at lunch it will not, and normally will be fine on the drive home. Its annoying though, as whenever you turn off the car you will be without music for 6 hours.

I also notice that sometimes it will play and if i go to adjust the volume knob or change songs it will cut out and not come back on and get the "error" message. This just started with the onset of summer and the heat, maybe that has something to do with over-heating?

Take it out of the dash and hit it with some canned air to get the dust out of it? Might be getting hot. Mine ran really hot.

I will give that a try and see what happens....

It also will not let me eject the CD when it goes into the mode of not playing music and displaying "error". My best guess is something is over-heating and causing that error.

If this is in fact the problem, would it be worth the 100 bucks Alpine charges to look at things, or just say thanks for 5 good years and grab a 9887?

As an update, I took out my 9813 and took the top off and hit the inside with some canned air to hopefully knock some dust out like suggested. I placed the 9813 back into the car after re-securing all the connections and have not had any problems with the unit not playing sound now. It has only been 3 days, but so far looks good. Thanks for the help!
