Does the ribbon also affect the buttons on the front display. My faceplate does not go down. Should I try to change the ribbon?

Its not too hard to change. I have done this once before. Open main unit. Remove cd mech to get to the other end of the ribbon. Remove this end first. Manually rotate the motor worm gear until screws on head unit are visible. Install ribbon in head unit then main unit. Make sure the ribbon contacts and ribbon are positioned/routed the same way. Rotate that motor (end to end) again to see if the ribbon hangs up anywhere.

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

The Unit is getting Power, but the Head Unit, which flips forward is not. I think that the connection between the two needs to be cleaned, so does anyone know how to disconnect the head unit from the base...


there are two screws on left and right of display on the arms that it flips . take them out and you can slip it off now the ribbon is probably bad so dont be suprised if it tears when you try to remove it . they are such a tight fit i doubt if the connection is dirty they break from the constant bending ..

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

Possibly a ribbon cable problem to the front display from the main circuit board.
