Display stopped working on my Hitachi AX-M68D CD Player

Nothing appears to have damaged the ribbon cable but yesterday the display in the CD Player section of the unit (the main display) stopped working. Nothing is displayed. Can't see if the display appears to be powered up because of the mirrored front.

Display stopped working mid-way through use. Other CD player functions appear ok - all buttons work.

Unit has been in storage for 1 year and was transported 200 miles but not on excessively bumpy roads.

I think the display in the Tuner section may also be a bit dimmer - it also appears to be flickering very slightly. Dunno if it helps to know that.

It definitely sounds like it took a surge. yhe Power Amop IC in those things are pretty sensitive. Any decent repair shop should be able to repair it for under $125.

Hi MadLad,

There are several things to consider re this fault.....

Normally on small systems there is a selector switch to allow you to select what you need to listen to...for example if you want to play a CD then you select the CD mode, insert the CD push play and away it goes....

In your case you need to select Radio, or maybe select AM or maybe select FM, one of these should be accessed from a digital read out menu where you select your requirements.

Please have a good look at the operating manual to see if you can work out how to select the required listening mode, and you will be sweet...

Cheers From YUBEUT

SOURCE: CD player and everything works fine but there is no display .....

Well, my display went out earlier this week. Took it apart and found out that the LCD on the 501dpx was burnt out. I also found out all we have to do is replace the whole faceplate instead of the system

SOURCE: clock display board

Replacing capacitor C3 on the clock board will correct the dimming problem. I will cost you about $2 for the part. Replacing the board does the same thing just with a higher price tag. Unfortunately, tt sounds like you may have a bad "new" board if this problem happened as soon as you put it in.

When I had the dim display problem with mine, the oven still heated up, chimed at temp, etc -- you just couldn't see the numbers. My wife didn't like it, so I fixed it. If your old board works like mine did even though the display is dark, you could try replacing the noted capacitor and see what happens.

I hope this helps.

CD will start and then stops playing - cannot use laser cleaner


The laser pickup head that has the ribbon cable attached has become defective and is intermittent. Unfortuneately the cable is hard wired making service out of the question, far cheaper to replace CD player.

Display doesn't work on TEAC PD H300mkIII


I had the same issue today. I found that opening the unit you can see that there is a white ribbon cable connecting the head unit to the main board. removing this cable and re-inserting it the connector fixed the problem. The display now works again...hope this helps

An area on the display it's not working. PowerBook G4


I'm sorry to say that you will have to replace the screen soon. That vertical black and white lines that appear is the early warning signs that your screen will soon go blurry, or have a partial screen, or have it just stop working. This happens from the many times the screen was lifted open and closed and the ribbon cables just need to be replaced. And since the ribbon cables can't be simply unplugged and then replaced, you will just need to get a new replacement screen.

I have a CDX-M8815X unit only works with remote commander


The problem is the ribbon cable,the one connects the face to the main board,if you live in USA you can order it from pacparts.com or sony.com.
For replace it you will need to open the unit and open the face by moving manually the gears,then remove the side screws of the face and remove face,then remove the cd mech. you will see the ribbon connector.Just replaced and put everthing back togheter.
Good luck

Possibly a ribbon cable problem to the front display from the main circuit board.

You probably have a break in the flexible ribbon cable that goes between the flip face and the mother board. Try partstore.com for a replacement cable.
