Thank you in advance for any suggestions! Some guys would just toss this 1993 unit but it was my Dads and oh if I could simply get it to turn on!! It is a smaller home stereo with AM/FM, Dual Cassette and 5-disc CD player. Question: if turned off after last use, (with the remote now missing), does it require a remote to unlock to start up? Again, many thanks!

I can’t find a FW27.
But if it’s similar to the FW25, then yes it will work fine without the remote.
There is also a system reset button on the back.
Can you share some photos of the front and back of yours?.

I will check again for a reset button and post pics. I swear I did not see any reset button.... Also pulled cover off in case something was disconnected, circuit fried, etc...all looks great...just not responding to "on button" when compressed. Thanks Martaine2005!

I am frustrated Martin! One; I must apologize: my father passed away and it has been a tough time here.

I am unable to post the pics I took as it says “The uploaded image is too large”…..let me work on that!

My unit has NO reset button on back!

When I opened it up (removed the covers), nothing looked bad inside…but I am no serious electronics guy!

I will try and resize the pics to help you help me. MANY THANKS SIR!

Soo frustrated as I cannot reduce image size that will allow me to send.

Maybe it is this forum? Or the foremat they use?

I can send them via email (which may allow this size of pic?)

I do believe 300KB works well.
There are also plenty of online sites that re-size free.
