Car stereo light out

Everything still works with my car stereo/cd player, but recently the light went out and i cannot see/read any of the display at night. Does anyone know how to fix the problem? Fuse or bulb? Thank you. (Pioneer DEH 42 car stereo.)

The cd player in my car is A56820, JBL, it will load and eject cf's but not read. any fixes?

Did you get all of the CDs out of the player or are any still
stuck inside the stereo? Its the part about everything working
OK until a disc changed that makes me ask.
If a disc is jammed because it didn't load properly, you won't
be able to get all your discs out.

1998 Honda Accord EX stereo/CD player has Code E on the screen... What is the cause of this and what can I do to fix it?

Unfortunately 90% of the time when you get error codes from the CD player/changer it means that there is a mechanical failure in the CD player/changer unit itself and it usually requires CD player/changer rebuild or replacement...
First make sure you have entered the correct anti-theft code. If battery power has been disconnected recently than the stereo display will read CODE if the incorrect anti-theft code is entered the display will read ERR1 thru ERR3. If this is the case you'll have to get the correct anti-theft code. Note; If you enter the incorrect code three times the stereo locks up. Disconnect the battery for more than 30 seconds and then retry.
FYI;Never use adhesive labels or protective disc covers on recordable CD's. Recordable CD's are actually thicker than pre-recorded CD's. Automotive players and changers use rollers to draw the disc into the unit. The added thickness of an adhesive label or protective disc cover may cause the disc to jam. Also CD players and changers are exposed to high temperatures inside the vehicle. High temp will cause the labels adhesive to soften which may cause the labels edges to curl or cause it to bubble. Either one may cause the disc to jam and cause the player to display error codes E-01 thru E-07. If the player can not be disassembled and have the discs removed successfully than it will have to be replaced. -hope this helps.

My car stereo stopped working. No light display. The display light went out first. The following year the radio, CD and cassette player stopped working.

Check radio fuse at the fuse block. OR if possible determine if you have
12 volts going to the radio. If so i would say the unit is toast.
These days it's hard to fix something for cheaper than it is to buy new.

All the dash display lights suddenly went out

Modern CAN-bus electronics can do some very strange things when the battery voltage is very low and your description of events matches almost exactly with those experienced by a friend shortly before he needed to replace his car battery.

My own experience tells me some stereos should not be fitted to some cars or a discharged battery will result (unless the wiring is suitably modified). It is important to read the instructions - carefully!

I strongly suggest you have your battery and charging system tested and the stereo removed until it is discovered to be compatible...

Siemans VDO CDR500 Audio player for Vauxhall Astra 1999

Switch off the stereo so that the date and time show on dash. Press and hold the volume button and the AS button together for about 5 seconds. It should now ask you to input the code. Do this by using the numbers 1 2 3 & 4 on the stereo. When the code is entered, press and hold the AS button on its own and wallah, your cd player is up and running
