That is very odd

Is it hooked up to an Amp?

You may have the wrong -or a faulty- wiring harness.

Assuming you've tried multiple CD's right?

I'm sure the problem is your deck itself. It sends all sound from all sources (CD/Radio) through the same pins and wires for the speakers, so I wouldn't imagine it could be anything else besides the CD or the deck. I'd be almost 100% sure it's your deck.

i dont know if this works for alpine units but i know for some units there is like a "master reset" or somthing of the sort on the back of the head unit, that has been known to fix issues like that.

but if you would rather not deal with it... and its new... just take it back and say it was DOA.
