Question about Aiwa NSX-AJ20 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Eternal Standby mode

A little while back, the system went into standby mode & now it won't return to "pwer up" mode. CDs are getting stuck. I have to unplug the system from the wall outlet & wait a while - as if to give the system a chance to reset itself. The "reset" lasts long enough for me to retrieve my CDs. Please help me . . . I bought this as a gift (paid good money for it) & it only lasted a year. How embarrassing!

My MHC-GX450 worked fine for several years. I just went on vacation for two weeks and before I left, I unplugged it so lightning would not cause power surge damage. When I came home and powered up, it...

After calling SONY support, they wanted me to send the entire system - speakers, cables... Please! That's is dumb, and the rep had to be reading it from a script.

So I managed to get the covers off and figured it out on my own. The drive belt for the CD tray had come off the pulleys. I simply put it back on and... Voila! Saved myself hundreds of dollars for a $2 belt. I called SONY and ordered two spares. Sometimes, if you have some mechanical and basic electrical skills you can save yourself a lot of money and aggravation.

My system is on standby mode how i can fix this problem


Your unit being stuck in stand by mode is an indication that its having a power problem. Remove its plug from the wall and fix it back into the wall, then turn it on again. If its still stuck in standby mode, then the power supply board in the unit is the cause of the problem.

The power supply board might be defective and maybe that's why the unit won't power up. Its receiving power but it cannot transfer the current to the necessary part of the unit because a capacitor, diode, etc may have been faulty. Until these bad components are replaced, the unit might not come on.

If you know about electronics repairers, I would suggest that you disassemble the unit and read the power board/panel with a meter, detect the bad component and replace it.

If you don't know about electronic repairs, take the unit to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you.

I wish you good luck.

Stuck minidisc

Turn the power off and back on at the mains. With the machine now in standby, press and hold the "Play Mode" and "Minidisc Play/Pause" buttons together. The machine will enter test mode and the disc should eject. Switch the power on and off again at the mains and the machine should be back to normal.

CD not reading CDs

Sounds like a dirty lens or laser failure.

Seek professional help.
The lasers are not as expensive as they used to be, get an estimate.
