Press the source button to select fm, press and hold BTM button until Btm flashes. This will automatically store stations for you. Page 8 in this users guide covers same as well as manually setting stations. You do have the antena connected? http://www.docs.sony.com/release/CDXGT20W_200.pdf
It sounds like the stereo does not have the "ACC" voltage. It could have blown a fuse. The "ACC" voltage goes to the red wire on the harness and you get that voltage turned on only when the ignition is turned on in the car.
The symptom of the disc ejecting and nothing else works is an indication that only the constant voltage for the yellow wire is connected. Check the voltage on the red wire with the car turned on, if you have that 12 volts at the red wire, then you need the radio serviced.
It is not very likely that the faceplate has gone bad. Just because the radio will not turn on is not an indication that the faceplate is bad. It could be a voltage regulator in the radio or a circuit trace is blown, or almost anything else. There are many reasons that the radio would have the problems you describe and it can only be found out for certain by troubleshooting the radio on a test bench with the proper tools. If you have a multimeter and a power supply I can guide you thru troubleshooting the radio and even email you the service manual in PDF format if you would like to take a crack at it yourself.
My only idea is that there could be a factory amplifier that isn't getting juice. Go to installdr.com and they have the harness pinouts under "quick radio wiring info" in pdf format. Best of luck.
Sounds like your head unit is on it's way out, you could try cleaning the contacts of the face plate plate with rubbing alchol and a q-tip. Make sure you get both sets of contacts, the face and radio.Because the display is working it's definatly not a power problem, clean those contacts and if still doesn't work invest in a new radio, sorry to bear bad news if it's not the contacts.
