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

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.

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.

Stereo....


There is no easy inexpensive way to hard wire an MP3 player into a factory stereo from 1994.

But there are 3 possible solutions and the first 2 should be less than $50.00

1. Use an FM transmitter that plugs into the headphone jack on the MP3 player, you tune the existing radio to the transmitter frequency.
2. If it is a cassette deck there are cassette adapters also, uses direct contact with the heads on the cassette deck to play the MP3 -- getting hard to find these.
3. Have a shop put an FM Modulator in the antenna line that has a plug that will fit the headphone jack of the MP3 player. Most expensive of the 3 solutions but will have the best sound of the 3.

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.
