Accidently removed the tiny screws behind faceplate

Did I just ruin this stereo? I removed the 4 tiny phillips head screws on the front of the stereo (behind the detachable faceplate).

I can tell that something came loose behind the front plate. Any way to fix?

Thanks.

    Thanks for posting your feedback scrapin_96. I was able to fix the problem myself shortly after posting my question. What I had done with removing the screws was releasing the 4 black clips that stick out of the faceplate that hold on the face of the stereo. I fixed it by working on it upside down so that gravity was on my side. I think that there are some magnets that help put the clips back in place. When the clips were back in position I was able to put the screws back in and they luckily grabbed the clips back into place. All of this was done upside down with only one person. It would have been easier with a second pair of hands, but got it fixed! Thanks.

It could just be a plastic clip that broke.Most of the car stereo's ive taken apart only have a thin ribbon of wires that run into the contacts that your face plate connects to.If you actually took screws out of the faceplate then id put them back in and put it back into your stereo and see if it illuminates properly,if it does not then id search on E-BAY or contact pioneer and buy a replacement but most the time it would be cheaper to just buy new stereo.You might want to be more specific with the area you took screws out of,the way im reading it sounds like you unscrewed the screws in the face dock, not the faceplate.Hope this helps.

I have a cd stuck and can not eject it . Dealership is telling me $1000.00 and I want to get the stereo out of the dash and see what the problem is myself first


To remove the radio, start with removing the faceplate for the stereo by removing the two phillips screws on the bottom of the faceplate, then there are two tabs on the top that will come loose once you swing the bottom of the radio faceplate out. Then there are 4 phillips screws holding the radio in place, two on the sides and two on the bottom.

    Replace broked water actuator


    You will need the new actuator, regular Phillips head screwdriver, putty knife, and jeweler's screwdrivers.
    1. Go to this link to view the parts diagram.
    2. Carefully peel part #14 using putty knife.
    3. Remove 3 screws part #43
    4. Carefully remove part # 4. Note, there are fragile plastic arms that snap into place to hold the top of part #4 in place. I used a flat jeweler's screwdriver to apply pressure to the arms so they did not snap off.
    5. Once you have removed #4, you will be able to see the top side of the actuator. There are three Phillips head screws which hold it in place. Just remove those screws, install the new actuator, and replace the screws. Note you may need to remove three Phillips head screws holding #8 in place to get to the screws holding top of actuator. Do this carefully or the wiring harness which attached #8 to #38c will pull out which adds extra steps (If this happens, see below).
    6. Replace all parts following the above steps in reverse.
    7. I used a small amount of contact cement to restick #14 but it was probably not necessary.

    If you accidentally pull the wiring harness from step #5 above out, you will need to remove the circuit board cover to replug it. There are 4 tiny Phillips head screws which hold the cover in place. Remove them using a jeweler's screwdriver, replug the harness, and carefully replace the cover.

    2 discs stuck in console


    WOW!!! I am so sorry that this happened. Nintendo products are really hard to open. If you cant wedge the game out with a small screwdriver, dont worry about the game, here are the directions on opening it. Just copy and paste to word so you can see the whole thing easily.

    How to open your Wii Console Step by Step Instructions

    To disassemble:
    1. Flip the device upside down and remove the small silver Phillips screw. Once out, remove the battery tray from the console.
    2. Next remove the rubber foot directly above this battery tray. Also remove the three square white stickers from the bottom of the Wii. The rubber foot and the sticker are covering hidden screws. Figure 3 provides a shot of where these screws are located. NOTE
      Hiding screws under stickers and rubber pads is a common method used by electronics manufactures to help increase the aesthetics of their devices, as well as prevent people from easily locating screws and taking apart their products.
    3. Unscrew the two Triwing screws and three Phillips screws from the bottom of the Wii.
    wiifig03.jpg
    Figure 3 - Bottom Screws


    1. Flip the Wii over onto its right side. Locate and remove the two rear rubber feet and the two rectangle stickers near the faceplate.
    2. Remove the two silver Triwing screws in the holes and remove the two black Triwing screws on the faceplate (Figure 4).
    wiifig04.jpg
    Figure 4 - Left side screw locations


    1. Flip the Wii upright and carefully remove the two socket covers. They come right out with a little wiggling.
    2. Remove the three black Phillips screws from the black plate (Figure 5). Note the one closest to the faceplate is the longest and will need to go back into that hole when putting the Wii back together.


    wiifig05.jpg
    Figure 5 - Top black plate screw locations


    1. With the screws removed, carefully pull off the faceplate of the front of the Wii. You will need to disconnect the red/black wire plug from the Wii to remove the faceplate completely. Figure 6 shows what is hiding under the faceplate.

    wiifig06.jpg Figure 6 - Under the Wii faceplate
    1. Remove black plate from memory/controller socket area.
    Remove two silver Phillips and two silver Triwing screws from memory/controller socket area (Figure 7). wiifig07.jpg Figure 7 - Topside screw locations
    Lay the Wii on left side (with the ATI and Nintendo logo facing you) and slowly work the right side cover of the console off the device.
    This will take a little bit of force. If something appears to be stuck, double check to ensure you removed all the screws.
    Locate and remove four screws holding DVD reader in place. Two are located in plain site in the middle of the unit. Two are located near the front of the Wii inside the DVD unit (Figure 8). wiifig08.jpg Figure 8 - The insides of the Wii
    Slowly tilt the DVD player upward toward top of Wii. There are two wires that need to be disconnected before you can safely remove the DVD unit. One is a plug type of connector that only requires a little tug. The other is a circuit strip connector that requires you to lift the brown catch, which will release the pressure holding the strip in place (Figure 9). Do not break this!

    Display issues with Aiwa CDC X207


    I had the same problem. There are two small light bulbs that illuminate the digital display, and they are burned out.

    You can easily replace them. The Aiwa part number for them is 8Z-KT1-641-010. The bulb is made by Sony, and the Sony part number is U0087654U.

    I purchased them from Union Electronic Distributors:

    https://www.ued.net/ued/addItems.do?itemCode=SNYU0087654U

    Note that the product is not an item they keep in stock, so it may take 1-2 weeks or more before you receive them. Be patient.

    Here are the steps to replace the bulbs. You will need a small (#1) Phillips screwdriver and a soldering iron (low heat). A very small flat blade screwdriver (1/8") will also be helpful.

    1) Remove the faceplate from the radio and bring it to a well-lit work table.

    2) Remove the four Phillips screws on the back on the faceplate.

    3) Carefully separate the back half of the faceplate cover from the front half. There are three locking tabs along the top, and three locking tabs along the bottom. I used the small flat blade screwdriver to separate the two halves.

    4) Once the back half of the faceplate has been removed, re-install two of the Phillips screws to hold the circuit board in place (one screw on each end). You don't need to screw them down tightly; just screw them in until you begin to feel them stop. These screws will keep the circuit board from separating from the front faceplate and causing the buttons to fall out!

    5) Locate the two bulbs. They are labeled PL 901 and PL 902 (may also be labeled PL 1 and PL 2). Carefully unsolder the bulbs and remove them from the circuit board. You may want to do one at a time.

    6) Each bulb has a colored cover to change the color of the light (I jokingly refer to them as 'bulb condoms'). Remove the covers and carefully slide them in place on the new bulbs. You may want to slightly dampen the bulbs to aid in sliding the covers on. Be sure to slide them all the way down.

    7) Solder the new bulbs in place. They are not polarity sensitive.

    8) Trim off the excess wires.

    9) If you installed the two screws in Step 4, remove them.

    10) Carefully re-attach the rear faceplate cover to the front faceplate cover, making sure that all six locking tabs snap in place.

    11) Put the four Phillips screws in the rear faceplate and carefully tighten them.

    That's it! Now, put the faceplate back on the radio, turn it on, and enjoy your lighted display!

    Hope this helps.
