Hi ya

Well Aiwa stereos are very hard to open and designs to break when opening, however some models can be opening without too much issue.

So before you try to open the item, try these if you have some switch cleaner or alcohol tape head cleaner - put a little drop onto the headphone jack and insert and move around the socket just incase there is dirt on the contacts inside, also clean the tape head too just incase of the same,

if not then its an open up, sometime the solders come loose, so with a soldering iron just warm the solders up a little this may fix it.

if this does not it may be a broken part inside the jack - they can be replaced but not easy - spares can be got from ebay from china, for about 1.00gbp

hope this helps

I need instructions on how to transfer cassette from a boombox without headphone jack to PC.


The problem is that there is no sound output you can use if it has no headphone jack. If the aux jack was an out, then you could use that. It is possible to make a jack socket, by breaking into the speaker connections. But you would need a soldering iron and a headphone jack socket to do that. You would also have to build the jack into the unit. As I don't know if you can do that, I would suggest finding a cassette player secondhand that does have headphone jack on it. There must be plenty around since cassettes are not that popular now. If it's a commercial music tape, it would probably be cheaper to buy the digital version of it. But if it is a personal recording, then the cheap cassette player is your best option.

In the headset sound is comming from only one side


There is a wire break on one side of the headphone and so you will need to check the continuity of the headphone.
The fault can be at the earpiece or the connecting jack from which it had come off.

Not even started yet how do i connect cassette


A double male connector, connecting from the headphones jack to the Line-in or microphone jack should do the trick. You can get these at Radioshack inexpensively.

Cannot hear out of both left and right headphones unless I twist the insert plug. Can this be fixed?


Plug another headphone in walkman to check wither headphone jack in walkman is damaged or its headphone plug.
If other headphone gives same problem then open walkman and re-solder headphone jack in circuit.
Hope this will solve your problem.

No sound coming out the headphones


Try the line out on the back of the unit and see if sound signal comes out there U must plug that into a preamp on your stereo the signal level is to low for the headphones to sound and if there is sound then u have a blown output amp in the headphones circuit!

Static


Of course, I have to start with the obvious. Try changing batteries and headset and see how that helps.

I would get some cleaning solution called deoxit, and clean the battery leads. Also coat the headphone jack with it and put the jack into the player. Recoat and try again. Twist the jack around, it should help distribute the solution.

If the static is caused by a poor connection, that should clear it up.
