Question about Car Audio & Video

Open Question

I cannot get the face plate to illuminate on my cdx-5070 cd player. there is current going to the unit as the cd player will take a cd. A friend said it may have something to do with an additional ground connected directly to the chassis. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

SOURCE: cd player

First of all, you aren't going to like this solution because it's the truth. If you rate me poorly, it's because you don't understand the truth. The optical pickup is bad and needs to be replaced. Anything made by Xtreme sound is poorly built. Yes, you're lucky to have even gotten four months use out of it. I've seen some that only last for two months and they die. Fortunately, that's why you didn't pay that much for it. I would suggest getting a Pioneer in the future.

SOURCE: sony CDX-M8800 face plate is non responsive

There is a ribbon cable that tells the face what to do. You will have to take it in to get serviced as it is very hard to change. There are alot of pieces / parts inside.
hope this helps

SOURCE: CDX-S2000 Volume, Source, and Mode buttons not working????

Hey jshaff, try taking off the detachable front, and you will see a reset button, press and hold in for 10 secs, this should solve your problem. if it doesn't work first time keep trying. you must have power to the head unit for this to work. you will hear the cd make a noise and that should be that, try and let me know.

SOURCE: Face plate/controller won't light up

As far as i can remember, since the release of the detachable face - pioneer has used the same locking mechanism - basucally a spring loaded hook.
The release keys have not changed, so im pretty sure they use the same design.
Any DIN sized radio will fit in any sleeve.... regardless of manufacture - it is an industry standard. Only the locking mechanisms vary (and even that can be modified to work with the right tools.

I may suggest cleaning the contacts on the faceplate (if its removeable) with an eraser to remove varnishing that may have ocurred over the years.

If you decide to have it repaired, you're looking at about $45.00. May be wise to invest that in a new radio instead with better featured and a warranty.

CD RESET


to fix this problem you have to take the face plate off. There should be a small button on the middle-left side that sais "reset" on it. Get a ballpoint pen and press this button. Pop the face plate back on and play your CD and it should work no problem.

Daewoo Cd player


The car security is not connected to a head unit. It probably has a small blinking red light on it which blinks when you remove the faceplate and switch the ignition off. This is just an indicator which lets people see that the face plate is removed.

You can replace the headunit with any brand/model you want. It would be cheaper than buying a replacement faceplate.

Cdx-mp40


You are correct, the unit powers entirely from the red and yellow leads. Your symptoms sound like a unit that isn't getting power on the red (switched) lead. The most likely cause is a blown fuse in your vehicle's fuse box.

Illumination not working when faceplate is open.


Wire braid out to the faceplate has got a parcially broken wire on it. Sony referes to it as a flexible circuit board. Part can be purchased from sony directly, an on a one to 10 scale to replace about a five.But it does involve taking your radio apart. So if you are handy at electronics. you can look it over. If you have doubts let a professional do it.
