Question about Sony CDX-F7700 CD Player

1 Answer

Main lcd not working.

My player can do everything it should,but there is no display at all. Are there any internal fuses, or does anyone have a circuit diagram. Any help would be great.Have taken the back off the display to see if there are any loose or dry joints but it looks ok.

Re: main lcd not working.

If the unit is a flip face then suspect the ribbon cable to the main circuit board from the front display. If it isn't a flip face then suspect that the back light lamps are out. If you can see a very very very dim image of the display when it is running then for sure it is a back light problem.

the message you are getting is "amp guard". This is the mesage it will display when a short in a speaker wire or speaker with low impedence is hooked to the internal amp and sends it into protect mode, shutting down the amplifier section while the rest of the unit continues to work.
Check your Factory speaker locations for blown speakers or bare wires to metal.

CD player and everything works fine but there is no display .....

Well, my display went out earlier this week. Took it apart and found out that the LCD on the 501dpx was burnt out. I also found out all we have to do is replace the whole faceplate instead of the system

Display comes on then cuts completely out

Hello. here is the solution...if you still need it..

Open up the face plate... by unscrewing the 4 screws at the back corner of the faceplate

Expose the PCB with the LCD display mounted on it...
towards the right is black tape... remove the tape.
this exposes 2 White LED ( 3 mm) tapering inside the cavity of the LCD display..

If the symptoms are what u say... then the LED's are dead...

Unsolder the bad LED's with new ones.... and then fix everything back

hopefully everything works.. Cheers.

Alpine cda7969r display problem

Hi trinder,
I fixed my Alpine TDA-7563 with the same problem. My display was completely blank everything else worked. After checking that the LCD display is getting power and everything else in the face that I can think of, I thought maybe the rubber LCD contacts were squeezed down or something and not making proper contact, so I just pushed it back onto the board and pressed.
This was at night, so I had an external lamp and noticed to my delight that the display was in fact working, nothing is wrong with it.
I am embarrased to say that as a technician I forgot that an LCD display needs a backlight, duh.
So a simple connectivity test on the 2 lamps shows that they are both blown.
I have to source them at my local electronics store, I measured the power supply to them as 12Volts, so it is just a matter of getting ones with the right dimensions and bright enough.
Hope you have the same problem, then it will be an easy fix for you.
Good luck,

You probably have a break in the flexible ribbon cable that goes between the flip face and the mother board. Try for a replacement cable.

Face Plate

If this is a "flip face" type of display then you may have a broken lead in the ribbon cable that connects to the main board from the flip face. This is a very common problem. You'll need to replace that ribbon cable.

Main Display Window

Hello Gully, the flat cable between the front panel and the radio. If you want I can give you the part number but the replacement of this cable is not simple. Best regards, Arpi
