Question about Sony CDX-M8805X CD Player

2 Answers

Dead Buttons The Reciever works Fine with the Remote, but when you hit the Open Button on it, and the Display on the Reciever Flips down, all the Interior Buttons and the Interior Display is Dead. You can perform almost all the Needed Functions on the Remote, EXCEPT Ejecting CD's the only way to do that is one of the Dead Buttons on the Reciever. The outer Display works Fine, with the Racing Cars and Graphics. It is only the Controls that are Dead. How do I fix this?

Re: Dead Buttons

Most likely a problem with the thin cable connecting the faceplate to the head unit. Had the same problem with mine. Eventually the display died. The part # for the cable is: Item - ( PWB, FLEXIBLE ), 186181112, $19.87 ea. I just received mine, now I can't figure out how to get the faceplate apart to install it.

Volume went extremely loud..had to hit reset will still flip but face wont lite up & buttons dont work

sounds like you may have a bad flexible cable. the cables generally last about a year or so on those decks, depending on how often the face flips around.

Time set Alpine Reciever

Push on the clock display button until time starts flashing. Let off of the button. The numbers 5&6 button have a small h and m on them for hour and minutes. Push these buttons one at a time until you get the minutes and hour you desire. Don't hold the button down constantly. You have to punch them until you get the right time.

Buttons are jammed or frozen

See if you can do a hard reset, look for reset button in corner or kill power for more than 15min.

Cd player locked

It has a defective ribbon cable between the face and the motherboard. This is a common repair, but must be done by a repair shop. My shop charges around $60-70 for parts and labor for that repair, to give you a ballpark of what to expect.

Remote works, but not the reciever

This one is tough one. It soundslike you have lost the connection between the flip face and the main head unit. I suggest you pull the head unit and get it to a bench for closer investigation. Look for and tears in the connecting wire harness between the Flip control, and the main Unit.
