Question about Aiwa AV-D57 Receiver

Another fix for not powering up

This may, in fact, be the cause of many problems. Tried the relay trick, didn't work even as a band-aid. THought perhaps by doing that for a while it was allowing a leaky electrolytic capacitor reform so I used freeze spray on a few with no help. Out with the VOM, all the outputs ohmed out OK but if I held the power relay on I found one channel where the center bias was way above -0- V Touched up several cold solder connections, all of the type where you can see the hole in the PC board showing through the solder. No help. Decided to look under the small orange disc caps that were glued to the board and upon moving one I found that the glue was brittle. Oh no, not the old conductive glue problem. I used to see this all the time on old Mitsubishi TV sets. Cleaned all the glue off from under the three caps you can get to and she's fine now. *** BEFORE DOING THIS make sure to discharge BOTH large filter caps through a 100 or so ohm resistor for several minutes - there's power all over the board for some time after it's turned off. *** It takes a very steady hand under a lot of light. You'll need a small probe with a fine (but not needle-like) point on it to carefully chip away the old hardened black glue tiny bits at a time, making sure not to break a PC board trail. While I'm unsure what type of glue this is the glue that caused all the problems in Mitsubishi products was made from some sort of fish emulsion. Over time it apparently carbonizes become somewhat conductive. The stuff is only there to hold off-board components in place during assembly, it serves no other purpoise so it need not be replaced.

I have a 07 hayabusa, it starts up perfectly but when I put it in first gear it barely takes off or won't move at all in any gear!!

Shift solenoids in your transmission is my first thought here. It is probably too late for the band aid fix but you can try a total transmission flush and put in a quart of stop leak for transmissions along with your ****** fluid. Like I said this is a band aid if it works but has been known to work for quite a few miles.

Normally windows autodects drives. Are you sure that you have all pieces to it. Ususally the part is powered by the USB port. But it depends on the manufacturer some have power supplies that have to be plugged in. If your unit is powered by a power supply it should light up.

One of the ends will small and the other will have a USB plug. It could be you have a bad wire. Try taking the wire to a computer shop or store and see if you can get a replacement.

My Zune HD won`t turn on, what do i do ? =]

Hold the power button for 10 seconds. this should cause reset. if it does not hold it again for 15 seconds this should cause it to power into repair mode where you will then need to plug it into your computer and update the firmware with the included software. hope this helps!

Wipers do not work in intermittent position. They do work in low and high speeds but do not automatically return to the park position. They stop wherever you turn the switch off.

i belive that your wiper switch has gone out on the intermittent side. this is a very common problem.
I hope this helps you

1 Other User Has The Same Problem Posted by camberggren on Nov 26, 2008 I just encountered the same problem on my 96 Subaru after I had the alternator replaced. One user tried the band aid fix of removing the hazard warning flasher 15 amp fuse in position #27 in the engine compartment fuse panel. It could also be a bad lighting relay. I am still troubleshooting the problem. Solution #1 posted on Aug 12, 2008 0%20stars_w.png

The first thing you need to do is figure out if the car has a factory or aftermarket security system them replace the clicking relay accordingly
