Inside display panel not working

Hi all, I was driving earlier today and all was well with my M8800 however after nipping in my house to get changed, I come out and the inside display is no longer working! The outside display is fine and all buttons still work, just when the panel is down I cannot see what track is on etc... I do not have a remote so using the outside display is proving difficult. Any ideas as to what could be causing this and how to fix it? Thanks in advance!

Yes probably the ribbon it may not look broken the copper circuits are thin and the ribbon coating hides it so you may not see the break could wait and see if problem spreads to the outside display if so then definatly the ribbon ....

Sony cdx-M8800 car stereo buttons wont work

There is a ribbon cable that runs all the flip panels electrics, these are prone to breakage.
I have seen some of the cables on e-bay for a few quid, and also if you google "sony x-pod ribbon cable" you will get a big choice of places to order, and get instructions on fitting.

No display on sony cdx-m8800

if the remote makes it work and it plays ....if all functions work other than display check for bad solder joints on the display pay  attention to the ones on the corners if the unit is or was a tight fit in the dash its possible that the unit got a little stress and broke loose from the board .... if there is a white powder look in the display it probably bad... the silvery black in the corners is normal

Remove the radio, disconnect the blue wire, and connect the blue/white wire in its place. This should fix your problem.

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
