Question about Aiwa NSX-DS55 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

No sound from stereo

I have an AIWA NSX-DS55. It has been in storage for almost 2 years. I hooked it up today in my house, and no music will come through the speakers. The unit is plugged in and all the speaker connections (sub, L/R front, Center, and L/R surround) are correct. The unit functions properly in all other aspects, (display, CD shuffle, tape, FM/AM etc.) I have reset the unit per the owners manual, and still nothing. I thought perhaps the speakers might be damaged due to excessive heat of storage unit (100+, but I can hear a very faint hiss coming through all speakers.

Re: No sound from stereo

If you can hear a hiss then the spkrs and amp are OK. It sounds like you're not on whichever source you're wanting to hear or it is on mute. Make sure ther is no function enabled that turns the sound off or over-rides it (like a tape monitor or AUX in...).

The standy light comes on put no power whats the problem please

Sounds like the power supply is shot. You can buy a new power supply, but that would require pro level re-wiring inside the stereo. I'd get a new one, aiwa doesn't make good stereo's anyways. Go with pioneer

Same model, same problem. (CX NA-50) I have one that worked great for two years (at best) and I haven't used it since then. I recently decided to look for a solution via the internet.
I read somewhere else that there was a class action settlement with aiwa (now expired) since many of these units had this problem.
