Pioneer cdx fm653 6 disk changer won't power up

The changer was working fine a few days ago. Could it possibly be a faulty remote/display. I do not a a wireless remote and there is power to the cd changer itself. The motor runs when I hook power up to it. The display is blank and no music. Please help.

    I got this in 99 as well and it has worked great the majority of that time. I had to push the wire/cable into the remote at just the right angle to get it to work for the last year but now I can see the wires and the remote just will not work. I haven't been able to find a replacement remote for this model. Does anyone know a comparable one that works with this model?

I have the same problem, I just e-mailed pioneer. I am sure I will not find any help there. After I reset the changer and turn the display unit on it works fine. When I insert the cd's the changer just makes a redundant noise and does nothing. There is nothing stuck in it. Any ideas. Thanks

First try to get another display, maybe it's broken (could be the cable cutted), the changer with a motor noise in the moment you plug it, tell me that its ok (95%).

My car battery died.when i put in a new my cd player stop working

If your radio is still working, then your power is OK. The Sony CD changer gets its power from the Sony Unilink cable. It is possible that it passed a power spike down to your CD player while hooking up your battery cables.

I just had a CDX-757MX just die a few days ago myself. My radio, amps, and other changers are still working. Could be an unfortunate coincidence.

I have just bought a car from my aunt not too long ago. And she has this CD changer with it. I have only got it to work once, and it stopped working for no reasons. My aunt taught me to switch the radio frequency to FM 88.1, and then turn on the CD changer. It worked once, and then the next day it stopped working.
