Sony CDX-M8800 face plate is non responsive

There is a ribbon cable that tells the face what to do. You will have to take it in to get serviced as it is very hard to change. There are alot of pieces / parts inside.
hope this helps

Faceplate will not open

Perhaps something is not installed correctly physically. Sometimes if something is a little twisted the way the unit is installed it will keep it from opening properly. Try moving the unit slightly and see if that helps.

No display on sony cdx-m8800

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

Remove the radio, disconnect the blue wire, and connect the blue/white wire in its place. This should fix your problem.
