Question about Aiwa NSX-DS55 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Power Problem? My DS55 red standby light blinks at me and won't turn on.

What I have noticed is that my system has PMS or something. Sometimes I can walk up to it and push Aux or CD and it will turn right on play great play loud and not shut off. Other times it does that red light blink thing everytime you push on, or cd, aux, tape, ect... it just plain refuses to give in. I've tried unplugging it and have also tried pulling all the speaker jacks. Neither of those has helped. What I think may be happening is a while back the output for the left rear speaker stopped working. I wonder if that has just gotten worse and is now sending a shorted signal to the amp when it trys to turn on. Or could be a power problem. Any idea where to find shematics for this? Or I might just take it to the local repair place... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, MB

I agree with your diagnosis. If one channel quit and the unit now ocassionally won't output at all then the amp is going into protect. Have it serviced.

Check the back of the unit for speaker wire shorts, if everything looks fine suspect the output ic's in the stereo.

Sony HCD LX20i audio shelf sysyem won't turn on. Standby light flashing. Disc stuck in it.

Check the speaker wires for shorts, if okay! suspect the audio output ic's, the protection circuit won't come out of standby because there is a short.

Aiwa nex-d555 i can not get the cassette to come on....i dont have the remote got the system out of a deal so is there a way to turn on the cassette player

Wanna run that model by us again? "NEX-D555"? Can't play fast and loose with alpha-numeric info. I don't suppose you have the manual either.

Whatever it is try a search engine for "(exact model) manual".

Pressing the POWER/STANDBY/ON control would be one way to turn it on.

So I connected 8 speakers to this system and I might have blown it out. when i connect it the red standby light comes on. then when i press the power button the screen goes blank as if turning on but...

Audio output shorted out or blown fuses in power supply check all fuses if fuses are good your Audio out put transitors or I.C has been shorted out as a result of impedence over load in future dont connect speakers in parallel in those small Audio units.

Why do my speakers pop and the system turns off?

sounds like it is going into protection mode, but you have supplied very little info as to why it does this, does it do this staight after turning the unit on?, was the unit driven to loud for a long period? or the power supply may be faulty which is probably the best solution, what sort of system is it?

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

System cuts off 4 seconds after power on

hi, be careful, check ur speaker connection , its getting short somewhere, remove all the speaker cables and then check if the problem is still there, sometimes the speaker voice coil also gets shorted inside let me know
