Motorola T9500XLR, need to change faceplate

Recently bought the T9500XLR radios that come with two other color faceplates. I would like to change them but I can't find a screwdriver (as it is screwed in and not a snap on) that is star shaped, big enough or small enough. You would think the website would sell them or they would come with it!

The screws for the faceplate are superficial. It pops off with your finger nail. You only need a torque wrench to gain access to the guts of the radio.

This is a common size metric torque screwdriver. Visit your local auto parts store, Radio Shack, or 2-way shop to borrow or purchase the torque.

I replaced the S meter light bulb with no problem. Now I have no Nightwatch. Did I short out the Nightwatch Feature?


Hello,
The Nightwatch feature is actually AC feed. The wire harness runs from the faceplate to a box. That box is a DC to AC converter. Replacing the bulb in the meter should have no bearing on the NW feature. They do frequently go bad and in such a case the entire faceplate has to be replaced. Often times the faceplate will have a peeling or a bit of black color on the backside of it when the NW feature goes bad. If you have a watt meter you can diagnose some of the parts around the NW unit to see if that be the case. If you do find you need a new NW faceplate a piece of advice, try to find someone who has a junk/parts radio for sale that the NW still works in. Often time $30-$40 will get you the radio because the NW faceplate itself cost around &80 and are hard to find.

Code for car radio - new faceplate purchased


oh well, if im not mistaken that is a tape player correct? and well since the unit is already in the faceplate shouldn't need a security code, although if you replaced the whole thing, even then it shouldn't be a problem. Hope i could help Deneenie.

Motorola RAZR V3 faceplate lens cracked


It is not hard to change the faceplates on cell phones but you will need a special screwdriver to take the faceplate off, It looks like an octogon. I am not sure if it will fix the lens but when you look at the new plate you will be able to tell. Anymore question just giveme a shout bud.

Wont change channels


First, try resetting the faceplate CPU by shorting the proper pins on the faceplate to radio connector on the back of the faceplate with a piece of wire... They are marked on the connector, if this fixes it for you, enjoy!

If that doesn't work, then remove the back cover of the faceplate and check the faceplate connector itself for bad solder joints. As a matter of fact, check the entire radio for bad solder joints before looking any further.

I bought one of these radios a short time ago; Everything worked except for LSB.

I was told by the radio shop I bought it from that I'd have to wait until June to get it fixed, so I opened it up myself to see if it was something easy to find/fix, since I felt that if it was anything major it wouldn't be able to get AM or USB either.



In my case, I found bad solder joints on the faceplate connectors and a bad solder joint on one of transistors attached to the heatsink.

Once I fixed those two things, it's been a great little radio.

Be sure to reset the faeplate after resoldering and assembling, to clear any errors from the CPU.
