Question about Aiwa Z-R555 Shelf System

Open Question

I own an Aiwa Z-R555 stereo and I'm having trouble

I own an Aiwa Z-R555 stereo - trouble with the left audio cassette drive

My problem is that the 'play' and 'record' button next to it are bent and no longer mechanically able to engage that drive. Thus, I cannot make copies of cassettes, CD's, records or from the radio.

Does anyone have instructions for dissasembling/repairing the cassette player, and where I might find replacement parts?

Very grateful for any help!

SOURCE: aiwa cassette deck won't eject

I had this problem on an AD-S40. Turned out to be the drive belts, which had stretched, resulting in the fact that the motors couldn't drive the mechanism through it's various load cycles of opening/closing the captain roller, etc. as required to operate the mechanism. Stuck in mid-cycle, the doors would not open.

After removing the case cover, you can turn the belt driven wheels by hand to complete the cycle, so that you can eject. Then get new belts (several outfits sell belts based on length, on line). You don't need to do much to replace the belts -- after unlocking and getting the tape out, it was only a couple of screws to remove the mechanism, as a unit, and there is no need to fuse with the circuit boards and such. Easier than I expected.

SOURCE: I have a Aiwa stereo system that has a turn table,

fullmoon5220,

You need to replace the belts and clean all the moving parts. If you look at the rear of the unit you should see about 6 to 9 recessed holes. They have screws that you need to take out to take the unit apart. Remember to unplug the unit first. There could be more screws and even a couple on the front under the cassette doors. Every unit is different and you will just need to be careful and not force anything.

Once the unit is in two halves you should see the belts. Measure the belts with a ruler for length, and go on the short side because they will be streched. Go to http://www.mcmelectronicsinc.com where you should be able to match up the belts. Also order some contact cleaner to clean the capstan, rollers and heads. In addition get some lint free Q-tips to clean all the parts.

Use the cleaner on the capstan, pinch roller and the load mechanism. Install the new belts and reassemble the unit. If this was the only problem you should have a working unit.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Can music be transferred to computer and then be burned to cd


(Yes) What do you mean by transferred to computer? A stream (music play like a radio) a Download (a file saved to your computer) to record a stream to a audio cd recorder is easy. You need a cable with a 3.5m plug one end and 2 RCA plugs on the other end (red and white plug) Use the plug that looks like a headphone plug, plug that into the computer headphone or speakers and the others into your stereo red into the red hole and white into the white hole choose (AUX) now play the music from your pc you should hear it playing out from your stereo. Your all set. (have fun)

A download: A music file is stored on your computer. When you choose to download a file always remember what folder it is in! for a mp3 file you can use windows media player to burn cd. (must have a CD or DVD Burner installed in your computer to do this) if not don't fret just see above it will also work on downloaded music.

Have Aiwa NSX-V9090 Stereo with jammed cassette. I removed the cassette; however the system still thinks it's in there? When I power up the system it tries to play the tape the stops. I am not able to load...


Check with a small torch, to ensure that there is no tape broken arround the pinch roller or head, if there was no tape broken away, between the pinch roller and the cassette head there is a white cassette bar, this may have become bent.
