Question about Sony CDX-M8800 CD Player
Whenever the front panel is opened, there is no illumination and no functions can be operated. When the front panel is closed using the remote the display does not work. You can get the display to work if you press the reset button but it fails again once you open and close the front panel. In addition the CD will not eject the CD, however this may not be related.
U need 2 replace the ribbon that goes to the panel to the unit.i had the same problem with mine then i went on to ebay and found the ribbon there (cdx-m8800 repair kit)hope this helps

I am having exactly thee same problem!! None of the buttons on the base unit light up/work and when the cd player is closed it's just a dark screen. I cannot eject the cd that's in the cd player either. The remote seems to work fine. I have tried just about everything including changing the fuses and nothing seems to have worked at all.
