Question about Sony CDX-M8815X CD Player
I notice that my illumination is not on when the faceplate is open but the unit still works. I also closed the face plate and same result. this is while driving. Got home and turned off the car and turn the key back on to ACC position and noticed the faceplace briefly light up then turn off when fully opened. I closed and the illumination stayed off but the unit was still playing. I cannot see display status. So, I tried another approach. This time I set the unit so the face would stay closed. I turned on the car key to the ACC position and the system turned on with illumination. I was then able to see the display. Using the remote, I openned the face plate again to change the cd and the unit illumination turn off again. I inserted another cd and it played.
Wire braid out to the faceplate has got a parcially broken wire on it. Sony referes to it as a flexible circuit board. Part can be purchased from sony directly, an on a one to 10 scale to replace about a five.But it does involve taking your radio apart. So if you are handy at electronics. you can look it over. If you have doubts let a professional do it.
