How to service the buttons & LCD in a Becker CDR-220


The CD player on my Becker CDR-220 quit working, so I picked a used one up for $100. The used one worked great, but the detachable face had a couple wonkey buttons. The face on my broken unit worked perfectly, but the lamination was coming off on the buttons. I decided to take the two faces apart and put the pretty buttons into the good detachable face. The process is pretty simple. All you need are a couple tiny flathead screwdrivers for prying the various clips apart. While exploring the proc

Never seen the face plate taken apart.

I remember when the Becker 220 came out. It had a problem with peeling buttons and sticky knobs. From the plastic. Dealerships replaced a lot of radios under warranty back then. Now you have second and third owners of these cars and they wonder why the radio code card does not work - because the car does not have the original radio.

Becker sold/sells replacement buttons and knobs. I do not see them listed on their site anymore, but it might be worth a call.

I was successful in replacing the buttons on the face plate, but the last two buttons I'd like some direction: 1. Power On/off button 2. CD eject button

Any suggestions how to replace these? The aren't mounted on the faceplate. Thanks.

I had a similar situation recently. I had an old CR220 radio with peeling buttons. I also had another CR220 with a bad LCD display. I dissassembled both, took the good parts, and built one good working faceplate.

Interesting note: The bad LCD display in the CR220 was caused by the circuit board inside the faceplate housing. By swapping LCD's, zebra connectors, and circuit boards, I was able to deduce that only the circuit board was bad. (I cleaned all connections, so it wasn't from dirty connectors)

Note that I repaired my climate control display at the same time using this DIY.

Wow, great work. Congrats. I've been inside both of those units before and it is certainly no cake walk.

I know this is an ancient thread, but...

 

I tried to revive the pixels, but this didn't work. I took the faceplate all apart, cleaned all th connections with Deoxit, and reassembled as tightly as possible. There was no improvement, although it was neat seeing how everything goes together. 

 

Thanks anyway,

Brad
