SOURCE: wiring color code for xr-c5100
I am about to sell one on eBay - here are the connections from the installation paperwork and connector that I have:
Top row, left to right:
White - Front Left (+)
Green - Rear Left (+)
Purple - Rear Right (+)
Gray - Front Right (+)
Blue/White strip - AMP REMOTE (Max 0.3A)
Blue - ANT REM (Power Antennta Remote) (12V, Max 0.1A)
Red - Power (Accessory)
Black - Ground
Bottom Row, left ot right
White/Black - Front Left (-)
Green - Rear Left (-)
Purple - Rear Right (-)
Gray - Front Right (-)
Yellow - Power (Battery)
One of the BLANKs is for the "Light Blue - ATT (attenuation for car phone)", but it is unclear which one. This wire is not on my connection block...
The circular BUS line to the right of the terminal block is apparently for linking to a CD/MD unit (cable supplied with unit)
The Blue 3.5mm socket is for the RM-X45 Rotary Commander (which attaches to the indicator lever)
If there is no ACC power line in the car, do not connect the red lead.
Ensure the power select switch on the bottom of the unit is in the B position, then press the RESET button (behind the faceplate).
This means that the display will be off when the unit is not in use - avoiding a flat battery risk.
(Posn A is for normal use, with red line on ACC)
The RESET buttom should be pressed after installation, before initial use.
Hope this helps.

It is possible that the mechanism is jammed and so there is no loading of the carriage to the system. when the tracks are selected please try and hear if there is noise of the loading of the CD. If not there is a failure of the drive, failure of the loading section both of which needs a mechanical check within.
Please also have the optical head cleaned.

You haven't mentioned nothing about its other functions. Does it loads CD, plays it and so one. Only mentioned about its back face plate backlights only. If this is the only trouble, that is, the backlight only not lights up, it can be repaired. Not even back light, most of the faults can be repaired. Backlight is produced by lighting up LED [Light Emitting Diode]. It may fail as if a bulb fails. It can be replaced. If problem is not this much, and more, inform me by Fixya. OK.
