Pioneer cdx fm653 6 disk changer won't power up

The changer was working fine a few days ago. Could it possibly be a faulty remote/display. I do not a a wireless remote and there is power to the cd changer itself. The motor runs when I hook power up to it. The display is blank and no music. Please help.

    I got this in 99 as well and it has worked great the majority of that time. I had to push the wire/cable into the remote at just the right angle to get it to work for the last year but now I can see the wires and the remote just will not work. I haven't been able to find a replacement remote for this model. Does anyone know a comparable one that works with this model?

I have the same problem, I just e-mailed pioneer. I am sure I will not find any help there. After I reset the changer and turn the display unit on it works fine. When I insert the cd's the changer just makes a redundant noise and does nothing. There is nothing stuck in it. Any ideas. Thanks

First try to get another display, maybe it's broken (could be the cable cutted), the changer with a motor noise in the moment you plug it, tell me that its ok (95%).

My radio works but when i put on the cd changer it plays but no sound

Are you using an amplifier? If you are, it sounds like you are using the power antenna remote turn on (usually blue) instead of the amplifier remote turn on (usually blue/white). Leaving tuner mode when using the power antenna remote turn on turns the amplifier off.

My car battery died.when i put in a new my cd player stop working

If your radio is still working, then your power is OK. The Sony CD changer gets its power from the Sony Unilink cable. It is possible that it passed a power spike down to your CD player while hooking up your battery cables.

I just had a CDX-757MX just die a few days ago myself. My radio, amps, and other changers are still working. Could be an unfortunate coincidence.
