    Leave the batteries out for apprex 15mins, this should return the camera back to the default settings.

Suandmarc is correct in that impact shock can cause this problem. My own 990 suffered this fate, and Nikon tech staff told me I would need the lens unit replaced, a part they still had in stock a/o 7/09. However, they were unable to repair my camera because it also required another part that has long been discontinued. In any case, it's cheaper to buy a functional replacement on eBay (thereby saving repair costs); I recently bought one for less than half of Nikon's quoted repair charge.

A common cause of continuous clicking is a malfunctioning auto-focus system. Typically, the focusing mechanism is trying to obtain image focus, but is unable to because the positioner cannot move the lenses into proper position. A camera which has been dropped or subjected to physical shock may exhibit this symptom, or the auto-positioner may just need repair or replacement.
If the positioner is actually physically ok, you should be able to switch to the manual focus mode to overide the auto system, and then follow manual focusing procedures to allow capture of an acceptable picture. If not, the positioner system will probably need attention.

Turn key just a clicking noise. Lights come on. Check engine light on


A weak battery will make the lights come on & energize the solenoid for the starter, but the battery is too weak to make the starter motor turn. Checking the battery would be first, the solenoid second.

My Aiwa NSX 990 wont come on. Only timer icon come in display and volumew LED keeps coming on and going off at regular intervals


Unplug the power cable completely to turn off and then turn back on again. Check whether there are no lose parts with missing contact.
Most probably it looks like a deeply digital problem with no do it yourself solutions - bring it to the repairman, but I even doubt he would fix it.
You can also download the Aiwa NSX-990 service manual and analyze more specifically your case. Download it from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?jc0ynzoiama or from here: http://www.4shared.com/document/rQ67hcpG/Aiwa_XG-990-NSX-990-NSX-992.html (click "Download Now", not any other button).

How to turn light on the python 990 remote?


If you just want the LCD backlit turned on, press and hold the program button on the back of the remote until the remote gives a long tone, that indicates that you've entered programming mode. Then within 5 seconds of entering programming mode press the the unlock button. The remote will beep once for backlight on and twice for backlight off. In the "on" setting your backlight will turn on each time a button on the remote is pressed. It will run down your battery faster though. It's the same for both the 990 and the 950 remotes.

Motor turns feebly, not enough to make the platter


Sounds like the motor is bad if you say it turns feebly. See if you can turn the drive shaft with your fingers easily. If you find it hard, it's possible that something might have worn out. You could try oil in that case.

The battery is good but there is no click or any noise when start


First, establish that there is 12v at the battery (with a volt meter) then remove terminal ends and clean contact surfaces. Check that there is 12v at the main starter terminal and 12v at the starter trigger wire with the key turned to the start positon. If not, check starter relay, neutral safety switch and ignition switch. Make sure battery ground wire on engine is also clean and secure.
