I have a CDX-M8815X unit only works with remote commander
Buttons do nothing and there is no display on the operation side of the unit. Tried resetting everything....nothing. Tried actions in troubleshooting guide "The display disappears from/does not appear in the display window.......nothing. Also cannot eject my CD. Main display side buttons work...ie. can open unit to the operation side but from there....nothing
Any info would be appreciated....Thanks

Re: I have a CDX-M8815X unit only works with remote...
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.

go to ebay and type in the model number of the unit and it will bring up some part that can fix the problem. i had the same problem and i just ordered the part. its actually a ribbon connector. im sure you just open up the radio and take the old one out and connect the new one up. this seems to be a common problem with this unit. the ribbon just starts to tear, and as it tears, you will start to lose functions on the stereo. i happen to like this stereo, so i decided to repair it. good luck with yours.
if the remote makes it work and it plays ....if all functions work other than display check for bad solder joints on the display pay attention to the ones on the corners if the unit is or was a tight fit in the dash its possible that the unit got a little stress and broke loose from the board .... if there is a white powder look in the display it probably bad... the silvery black in the corners is normal
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.
Hi, can't find man for m8815x, but got for m8805x.
First I'll gamble that your close button is within 3/4 of an inch of the voldn, it's possible that when you press the close button you're also making
the voldn button. could be due to impact
Check that the close and voldn buttons 'feel' right.
If the unit is very new, it could be a manufacturing fault. Bit of cruft inside, or a bad silkscreen on buttons, causing a bridge in the button matrix.
Try rolling your finger left-right or up-down over the close button to see if it doesn't do the voldn every time.
