Question about Sony CDX-FW700 CD Player

1 Answer

No display I have a Sony CDX-F7000 and a Sony CDX-FW700 that both worked great. I installed both in my new car and now neither one's display lights up. They both light up red around the volume knob and the buttons light up, just not the display part. I have switched the face plates around (a perfect match) and tried the ribbon inside the face plate. I can't believe that both suffered the same problem at the same time. I must be missing something.

Display dosnt work at all. it plays music fine i just dont see anything on the screen.

look and see if the yellow illumination wire behind the stereo is connected to the power wire, you may not have its lights wired up, this could cause you not to be able to see a display, to test this for sure shine a bright flash light into the face while its playing, if you see some display, this is the problem
