Perhaps something is not installed correctly physically. Sometimes if something is a little twisted the way the unit is installed it will keep it from opening properly. Try moving the unit slightly and see if that helps.

Need the radio code for my Sony CDX-M8800 CD/Car radio to turn it on, I do not have the remote.


There is no code for this radio. Chances are it probably has a bad flexible cable that goes from the face to the main motherboard.

My face plate was stolen out of my truck. Thr operateing instructions say cdx-gt200 and cdx-gt20w. How do i determine the proper model without the face plate and can I order a replacement?


remove the stereo from your truck. underneath the head unit itself WILL have a model number along with serial number, wiring instructions, etc............. but be warned that Sony WILL charge top dollar for the faceplate, which in turn will have them sayin somethin like "We recommend buying a new unit as the faceplate will cost nearly the same price as a new unit". In saying that, ALL Sony car stereo wiring looms fit each other, so no need for reinstalling the wires. so if u can get a cheap one without loom, then you'll be fine

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

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