Aiwa CDC-X504Mp stuck in demo mode

I also have exactly the same problem with the player stuck in demo mode. I can only get into setting mode of the clock. Otherwise none of the buttons work. I have tried putting the player in DEMO OFF mode by holding PUSH/MENU, but I can't access the set mode. Can any one help?

This recently happened to my Sony, maybe it will help u

If this cd player has a removal fascia then try..

Carefully inspect the the electrical contacts on the fasica and the cd player. If it has got dirt on them then CAREFULLY CAREFULLY clean with cotton swab dabbed in cleaning Alcohol.

I have seen this many times on my 2 stereos. Sometimes it can be fixed by these methods

1) Just keep punching buttons at ramdom on the faceplate and eventually it may unlock. This is about all you can do if you are driving at the time.

2) Take off the faceplate and hit the stereo reset button with a toothpick or paperclip. This button is under a small hole on the front of the stereo behind the faceplate. Hold the reset down several seconds. This will lose all your station presets etc, but sometimes will unfreeze the faceplate when you put it back on.

3) Totally remove power to the stereo by pulling the fuse, or taking the terminal off the car battery. This is very inconvienient, but does a fuller reset than just pressing the reset button.

4) If all else fails (and it has for me once), go on Ebay, and search for "CDC-X504MP" and buy a replacement faceplate.

Here's how I fixed this problem with the receiver locking in Demo Mode.

With the face on the radio and power on, I quickly pressed the "Push - Menu" knob repeatedly and firmly for a few seconds. This worked for me after trying everything else I've seen in the forums.

Good Luck!

Stuck on demo and cild lock

My Samsung did this as well. Unplug for at least two minutes and plug back in. Press the clock button twice. Set the time and press clock button once more. Doesn't have to be correct time, any time will do as you can go back and set correct time later. After pressing clock it should be out of demo mode. Try 1 second on high cooking. This should take care of the problem.

How do you set the clock on a jvc kd-g230 car radio

There is a misprint on manual concerning setting the clock. This is the case for similar JVC mobile head units.

The proper way to set the clock for this unit is:

1.)Hold down 'SEL' button count to 3 seconds
2.)Immediately after release of 'SEL' button hit the '>>|' button

This will allow you to enter 'PSM' menu. Every time you press '>>|' it will cycle between, 'CLOCK HOUR','CLOCK MINUTE', and 'Demo' Mode.

3.)Adjust settings by using the 'turn knob' and make sure 'Demo' mode is set to 'Demo Off' for the clock to stay set.

Stuck in demo mode

When you are in STANDBY mode hold the menu button for a few seconds and a special menu should pop up. In this menu you should be able to set the clock, turn off or on the beep, and take your unit out of demo mode. Good luck.
