Question about Aiwa CSD-TD69 Cassette/CD Boombox

8 Answers

Player won't turn on...period!

This came on in a blink of an eye. Unplugged it when I moved, (was working just fine) brought it to the new house (no damage/dropping or anything like that) and it simply does not turn on now. I tried a different same size cord--same thing--will not work. The house outlet works fine. What can I do? Is there a fuse that might have blown? Anything you relay will be gratefully accepted. Thanks!

    My boombox will work with the batteries, but not with the power cord. I ordered a new power cord from Sony but it did not work either. Sony Customer service was not any help. Got any ideas?

    Was working just fine and in the middle of playing the stereo suddenly turned off. I tried other cords of the same size, and it still will not work. What can be done to fix it?

    My wife (who is blind) was listening to a book CD. She pressed pause to pause the CD for about 15 minutes. When she pressed again to resume playing, the entire boombox was dead.

  • Twillla May 20, 2008

    BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. It just died. Something this much should hold for longer than this time period. 

  • FixYaYo Jun 03, 2008

    Mine is about 3 years old. One day while listening it just shut off. I pressed the power button a couple times and it came back to life. The next day, it did it again, only now it won't come back on. I tried batteries and AC power - it's completely dead. I'm in the process of disassembling it. Let's hope I can find something...

  • Joberle Jun 09, 2008

    Same thing. Brother in law was screwing around with power buttons etc while waiting for me in the truck. Unit powered off and won't go on. He doesn't know what he did but didn't drop it etc. Unit won't work now, faceplate/receiver works on another dock, so it's got to be the boombox.

    I have the same problem - I am looking for a fuse - something. I tried batteries and still no power.

  • fam54child Oct 31, 2008

    i had it plugged into a power supply in my car and it came on then went off. It has not worked since. I've tried a new power cord and nothing. I tested the power supply in the car and it works fine. I tried to plug it in inside and nothing. No matter what I try it ain't working...

  • rlf002 Nov 13, 2008

    I basically have the same problem using the AC cord as the power input. I put in batteries and it works.....unless the AC power cord is plugged into the back of the boombox. Removing the power cord and the unit works fine on batteries.

  • spampelotera Dec 06, 2008

    Has anyone gotten this problem fix? Im sure that batteries will come expensive after awhile.

My friend gave me his GPX K1007 CD/CD+G Karaoke Player to fix. Here is what I found. Firstly, its a typical piece of consumer electronic crap! There is an el-cheapo little bridge rectifier coming off the lower voltage outputs of the main transformer: 4 diodes and an electrolytic capacitor. This tiny little circuit board I see (after I managed to get the thing opened) appeared to have suffered some kind of electrical upset (black smuges) and yet I finally concluded that that is NOT the problem. The transformer (E190246 HF-41217L2TN) for some damn reason is not accepting any current in its primary winding. It is just an open circuit, which I cannot for the life of me understand. I think perhaps if I can just get replacement for this (apparently pretty shoddy) transformer it might start working again. I just have one problem. I know that we ultimately want 12 VDC onto the main board of this thing. What kind of volts AC do I want to come off of this transformer so the bridge rectifier circuit will convert it into 12VDC. Do I want 12.6 VAC on the secondary, since this is typical of the transformers I see advertised? Also, what kind of amperage will I need? I would have to know that so I know which type transformer to buy to replace the one in the unit.

I have a RCA RCD152 boombox. Sometimes it helps to take out all the batteries, especially the 3 AA batteries. Also unplug the power cord. Try waiting a minute before putting the batteries back in. It might help. It worked for me last night. From previous experience, I think it will happen again, so I will take out all the batteries again, put them back in again, and hopefully it will work again.

We have had same problem. Seems to be something to do with timer setting. Will be working fine and then stop all of a sudden, often mid-song. The LCD stops lighting up and nothing works. Unplug it for a day or two, plug it back in, and then it starts working again! Has happened to us twice. Can't find our manual for this product, so don't know how to fix it.

Posted on Mar 28, 2007

I have the same problem. Works with batteries but not AC power. Seems like power supply or micro switch which detects AC power cord to enable/disable batteries. The last 3 SONY products I purchased had problems. Sony is living on their past reputation. No quality any more. Never again for me.

Mine did the same thing. I maybe used 5 times. I took apart and it appears that the primary side of the transformer is open. I will confirm this with batteries. If the batteries work I will probably find a power supply and solder the wires to the contacts where the batteries connect.

Did you try with batteries? If that works, the internal power supply fails. A handy person with basic knowledge of electricity measurement, some good screw-drivers, a multi-meter and a soldering iron may solve most probably the problem.( You find persons with such disease at most unexpected places) Getting spare parts in case of need maybe a little more difficult.

I moved my TV from my old house to my new house. Before it worked just fine at my old house, brought it to my new house and it just doesn't turn on! Tried different outlets, wires, etc.

Check the power at the plug point. Check the plug of the TV. If there is no life, then you will need to open the TV panel and check for a blown fuse, a circuit break while transporting, a loose connector within the set or a possible damaged SMPS>

TV won't work. Green light blinks continuously on front panel

Your particular bigscreen has a digital module located on the left rear of the unit, and is mounted vertically. This module can be removed and the shielding taken off. On the component side of the DM module is a small power supply circuit board which needs to have all five electrolytic filters replaced. The filters are typically 1000 micro farad at 25 volts and are easily obtained by you local electronics supplier or repair shop.

The reason your unit does not stop blinking is due to these out of tolerance electrolytic filters. They became out of tolerance when the unit was left unplugged during the move. Once the filters are replaced, and the module re-installed, the green blinking light will extinguish after about one minute, at which point the unit will turn on.
