CDR 220 faceplate

Hi All,

The lights on the faceplate of my original-to-the-car CDR 220 have gone dark. The radio and CD player still work fine. If I get just a new faceplate and pop it in will I be good to go?

Thanks,
Stephen

I would be concerned about the radio code. Is it stored in the face plate or the main body? Have you pulled it all out and checked all of the connections? Try unplugging and reconnect?

I bought a CDR-210 faceplate, brand new from becker for my old head unit. I just popped it in and it worked fine. I doubt that the CDR-220 would be any different.

My CDR-220 faceplate lights up, but I don't have any letters/numbers on the LCD anymore. I still have sounds, (CD, AUX, radio etc.).

Yeah, the code is what I'm concerned about. The faceplate lost a few of its lights months ago. Then went dark.

You’ll be good. If not just ask for a new code on here or renntech. I replaced a screen recently from an old unit but can’t remember if I used the same code or a new one. Either way asking for your code on renntech will get you what you need, there is a huge thread and you get feedback in about 24hours.

Send it to me and I’ll replace the LEDs.
I have a bunch of OEM orange/amber.

If the other suggestions don't pan out, let me know, I have a CDR220 with radio code sitting in storage that I can part with.

Thanks to all. Right now I'm thinking it would be smarter to upgrade to a Continental head unit. Then I get Bluetooth also.
