Unit works fine but LCD display does not illuminate. Can be seen in a low ligfht room but it does not light up like it did for years. Do these LCD displays just die???

The older LCD's have backlights hidden behind the display that burn out over a period of time, this is a tricky repair because the unit needs to be stripped down and the covering removed. Soldering skills for most jobs will be required.

The LCD screen is losing pixels - help, can the screen be replaced or similar?

yes, a lcd screen can be replaced. but it may not be the lcd, but the driver ic -usually the microprocessor IC itself. making it uneconomical to pursue. using a voltmeter to measure the polarizing voltage at the pin of lcd associated with the missing segment will determine whether it is lcd or micro.

The Audio System does not respond to the remote control.

1. To reset their connection, turn on the remote control and switch the Audio System to Standby mode.
2. In Standby mode, press and hold both INFO and SOURCE on the front panel of the Audio System. It is reset to default when"RF ID clear" displays.
3. Press and hold both PROGRAM and SELECT on the remote control. When “ID claer” displays on the LCD of the remote control, the connection is reset.
4. By now the remote control and the Audio System should be connected to each other. Press and hold PROGRAM and SELECT on the remote control again. When
“ID Locked” displays on the LCD of the remote control, the connection between the remote control and the Audio System is locked.

Setting alarm

Alarm can only be set or disabled when the power in "Standby" mode. The manual refers to it as power "off" mode, but the LCD display will still be readable only darker. To set the alarm push the Standby button until the sound stops and the LCD is dark. Then push the AL SET button (which doubles as the volume down button when the power is "on"). The hour should start flashing. Adjust the hour by using the two buttons at the bottom on the right side just above the IR sensor. Once you've set the hour, push the AL SET button again and similarly adjust the minutes until you have the right time that you want the alarm to go off. Now push the AL SOURCE button (which also doubles as the function button when the power is "on") to toggle between Radio, CD, iPod or buzzer for your alarm. After you're satisfied that the time is right and the source is right push the AL SET button again. The LCD should still be dark, but should also show the word "ALARM" in the upper left hand corner.
To set the unit so the alarm doesn't go off push the "Standby" button until the sound stops and the LCD is dark. Push the AL SET button until the hour is flashing. Don't bother to adjust the time, just push the AL SOURCE button until none of the following appear: CD, iPod, Radio, Buzzer. As you push the AL SOURCE button it will toggle between these options. Once you're sure none of them appear on the left of the display, click the AL SET button again. The LCD should still be dark, and you should not see the word "ALARM" in the upper left hand corner.

Two issues with this system

Hi eshort

When you press the buttons to operate the Cd drawers, do you still feel a click under your fingertip the same as the rest of the buttons. If not, the plastic piece may have broken away from behind the front panel assembly preventing the switches from operating be from the front panel. It may as you have already diagnosed be a part broken off the transport also.Only further investigation will determine this:) Can you still operate the unit from remote control?

The LCD display will use an incandescent lamp to back light it. this lamp will have failed. These are replaceable, the degree of difficulty varies from model to model. Pop the lip off and check if it is easily access. The worst cases need to have the LCD display removed to replace the lamp. Good Luck, thanks for checking with FixYa

Power and lcd

If you are comfortable with opening up your system you could order the LCD from the manu. and install the new one. As far as the power goes. you may have knocked a connector loose (easy fix) or you either cracked the circuit board or broke a solder connection. You can do a visual once you have the unit open to see which it is. Again, if you are comfortable with a solder iron then reflow the broken solder connection or take a small piece of wire and repair the broken circuit board connection. (using the wire and solder to create a new "bridge") If you are not comfortable with this and it is not a loose connection you will probably need to take it to a reputable repair shop. The manu should have a list of authorized repair shops.

Can't do anything - LCD screen says "PROTECT"

It may be that there is a problem with a fuse inside the stereo. It may say protect because the fuse has broken a connection that allows it to turn on. If the protect goe sup it is trying to help save the stereo from cooking its self, and give you a chance to get it fixed. If that is not the problem then it may be easier to just buy a new one, because a fix may be expensive if you don't have any warranties.
