Question about Aiwa XR-M55 Shelf System

1 Answer

Noisy transformer after about 10 mins use, my XR-m55 has a terrible buzzing noise coming from the main(big) transformer/powersupply, it would appear I'm not the only one with this problem. Is there an easy fix without replacing the transformer? If not what are the specs for the transformer so i can buy a new one.

Being 120 v0lt was pluged into a 220 volts does it have a fuse or braker? it does not work

if you plugged it in without putting a step-down transformer in between the two, you have likely killed your 120 system.

I want to know where the wires from the speakers go into the main system. I don't have a manual

First connect the right speaker. The wire with the plug goes into the terminal labeled SPEAKERS HIGH FREQ R. The speaker cord with the white stripe goes into the SPEAKERS LOW FREQ R + terminal and the black cord goes into the - terminal. Connect the left speaker in the same manner but to the terminals labeled L. These are at the bottom of the connector block (Jacks labeled R on the left as you look at the back of the unit).

I hope this helps.

Sound quality bad i can hear bass but really no treble or mids

Could be that those speaker components (mid-range spkr., tweeter) are blown. Try hooking up a similar type speaker and see what happens.

Buzzing noise

I had the same problem with mine and the fix for it was to replace the Q401 transistor on the main board. I used a NTE382
replacement and has worked fine ever since.
Hope this helps

Buzzing noise

Of course it will stop buzzing when you mute the speakers. From the limited description, it could be anything from a power supply to loose wires in the system between the speaker leads and the motherboard. Best bet is to take it in to a technician and get a pro's answer. If he wants to charge more than what it's worth to you, get a new one.

Try using a cleaning disk to clean the lens on the lazer. If that doesn't work, then it may be you have a weak lazer and in that case it's time to replace the lazer assembly (a trip to the shop). Good luck.

Strange buzzing noise

Sounds like a bad filter cap in the power supply.when you change dimmer switch the buzz changes slightly because of a different power sraw on the power supply. If you are not versed in electronic repair. Get an Estimate. Or if unit is old get yourself a new one. Good Luck
