Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have an Aiwa Surround Sound Theatre system Model #cx-nmt720. Has a 3 disc player, am/fm, and 2 cassette decks (one on right allows recording/dubbing) Everything works great except cassette player/recorder. The door is stuck open on the right (recording) side and each time I turn the unit on it clicks loudly for 20 seconds. I cannot play any cassettes. Is it hopeless? I've tried closing the door but it won't catch. Someone put cassette in wrong way then pulled door open to get it out.

The unit may be damaged or may just need adjustment- only a tape deck technician will be able to answer the question after seeing the unit. To answer it remotely like this, is really an impossible task.

SOURCE: Left Deck Door Stuck Shut on Cassette Deck

The cassette mechanism has a large gear that rotates to different positions for the different modes. On time around is a play - stop cycle. It is stuck in one position and won't come around to the stop spot. Need to take the cover off and help it to turn to get the cassette out. Then figure out if something is wrong preventing it from turning or if the wheel driving it is the problem. They are all a little different so this is where your mechanical apptitude comes in.
By the way, you'll figure out right away they don't intend these things to be fixed.
Hope Ya Fix It.

SOURCE: Door won't open

It might be a model that has a special IC that allows the door to open and close.

You'll need to take the case off.

try hifiengine.com...that site may have the service manual.

SOURCE: Cassette door won't open

IF it is a deck with " soft touch " controls, that is, you arent using the old press hard down " piano key" style, but NOT a pure touch switch activation, then chances are either the drive belt has slipped, the belt broke, or the motor died. If this is the case ( soft touch = yes ), then unplug the unit, pop the cover off. You should be able to see the mechanism. When you view the mechanism from the front ( the side you normally see when using the deck ), the shiny little silver post that pulls the tape through during normal play will turn counter colckwise ( the shiny post runs against a rubber wheel ( the pinch roller )). What you should try is , with the unit unplugged and the cover off, if you can get your fingers to the deck in question, find the flywheel, should be a larger disk with a belt around it. Carefully spin the flywheel with your finger so that it turns counter clockwise, if you were looking from the front of the unit. This should cycle the deck through its cycle until you hear a click. Try to open the door. If the door doesnt open, press the stop button WHILE turning the flywheel again. This should drop the head assy and disengage the door lock mechanism. Remember, make sure the deck is unplugged, and BE GENTLE. you may feel a little resistance as you turn the flywheel. A little is OK, just be careful. If the flywheel comes to a hard stop when you are turning it, then something is jammed and you need to take it to a repair shop. Good luck...Rob. In the future, please specify a make and model so we can better help you . Thanks !!!

SOURCE: Cassette Recorder play problem

Left(Playback) deck of cassette player turns off within about 2 sec's after inserting a cassette to play. Rewind and Fast Forward stop also after about 1 to 2 seconds. When pushing button to play it turns back off right away. I suspect the end of tape/tension sensor is the culprit but do not know where it is. Have not taken any steps except finding this site first off!

Can my AIWA/CD5 record from the cassette deck to the dvd player


If the DVD player is also a recorder it should record the sound from any source once it is selected. But a "player" by it's definition cannot record anything.

I am tryin to hook up my sharp cd-c622 to a new vizio 42 tv....not getting any sound thru the stereo though...any help would be appreciated


If this is the correct model number CD-C622 there doesn't appear to be an input. You would need an input to connect this to a television and get sound out of it. I am copying and pasting the specs "It's a stereo mini-system with 40 watts per channel, and it incorporates a three-disc CD changer, a dual-well cassette deck, and an AM/FM tuner. The CD-C622 is equipped with surround sound decoding and surround speakers that add an extra ambiance to music. CD functions include 32-track programmability and repeat/random playback. The radio offers 40 station presets. The cassette deck has full-logic controls. There's a front panel clock/timer and a multi-color fluorescent display. A five-program equalizer gives you presets to suit different types of music, and there's a bass boost function, too. This system also comes with a Toslink digital audio output for recording CDs onto CD-R or MiniDisc."

Unless the input was omitted from this listing of the specs there wouldn't be a way to connect this to a television. I recommend purchasing a sound bar.

I have a NSX-V70 stereo. Tapes and CD do not work, FM/AM is fine


Your unit needs a little TLC. Let me address the likely problems/solutions:

1) Tape deck stuck - The most common problem here is that the belt has gotten slippery. This has prevented the mechanism from resetting to a known position and that is what prevents the door from opening. Hopefully when you pried it open, nothing bot broken.

2) Both tape drives run from the same motor and use different belts. The same applies to the second deck as the first. The belts are sliping and need to be replaced.

3) The CD lens is probably dirty and needs to be cleaned. The fact that the CD stops and an attempt is made to play it suggests that the optics are working enough to detect the disc. Clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol and that should resoplve the CD problem.

If you have not opened up these before, I would not suggest you start without someone around who has. There are 3 belts that need to be chagned for the cassette section to work. Plan on $15-$20 for the belts.

What is wrong with my theatre system?


have you tried all the sound settings from your dvd player? i have a 'sound' button to change from raw to surround etc. Press buttons and try it.

Some dvd's dont have the channel outputs, so try it listening to classic fm or radio 1.

Good day,i have an aiwa HX-A1000 stereo system with a 3 cd changer,casette player/recorder,and 5.1 surround sound.After having it in storage for several years,i have lost the owner's manual and cannot seem...


there is a problem with the stereo firmware. It is not anything you are doing wrong. It is a common problem with all Aiwa's. If you are handy with electronical repair, you can test and replace the bad resistors. Otherwise, it will have to be taken in for diagnostic testing.

Cassette door stuck closed


Firstly: do not think about forcing the cassette door! Look inside the unit. You need to hand rotate the capstan flywheel a bit,( a large-ish metal disc attached to the motor via a rubber drive belt.)That should release the powered deck mechanism and allow ejection. Then buy a new drive belt , so that problem does not recurr. Good Luck
