Customer Question
Hello: I have a...

Hello: I have a 1989 Porsche CD-2 radio, made by Alpine. The radio works, but when I insert a CD, I can hear it spin, and then a few seconds later it spits the CD out. I have been told because of how old it is, and the fact that it was one of the first CD players, most do not work, and they are hard / impossible to fix. Is this a bad laser reader, can the CD part be replaced inside the car radio?

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

It is an Alpine CD-2 radio, 1989

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

As long as I have owned the car. I have tried using a CD cleaner disc

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Can't think of anything
