No Display I have no display when the unit is open or closed and when the unit is open none of the buttons work.  The radio still plays fine but the remote doesn't always want to work either.

    I have had problems with some of the buttons not working, and then eventually everything on the system quit working. I was told it is a laser ribbon that has snapped in half. Sony will exchange the system for $162 with either a refurbished one or something comparable. I think I will just buy a brand new Kenwood or Pioneer instead.

    The front panel display is gone. The CD player and radio still works with the remote control, however, there is no display on the screen. I have tried switching off the unit and holding the off button for some time as suggested in the manual in troble shhoting section, however, it did not work.

    Also spoke to the Sony representative, but the issue is still there. Any one having a bright idea....?? Thanks

    Similar issue - things have turned off one by one - first i could not forward to the next track on the deck. A few days later i could not eject the cd and the faceplate would close each time i tried to switch between radio & cd.

    Now the unit will not play anything, cd still stuck, no time display now - i can get the "off" button to turn the deck light completely off then reopen unit and thats some override or something...anyone have any ideas?

No display

Did you install the unit with the correct wiring harness, or cut-and-splice the wires from the factory line to the stereo lines? This could be a problem.

Car radio not working

Sound like you need the manual to this radio, I would have said that there are components inside that go bad that will cause a radio not to light up in the display area. But if you radio is saying tuner, and maybe cd then it would be the selector button that has a problem. Or no antenna is hooked up or come apart.
