I have this problem all the time. you have to take the back of the stereo off, then clean the lens on the CD with a soft cloth. i've tried cd cleaners that have a brush on an actual CD - doesn't work. you can only fix this problem by opening it & cleaning it with a cloth.

I have an old Aiwa stereo with a 5-CD changer. The remote control has RC-7AS05 on it. How can I program the CD player to play the CDs continuously?


Press the RANDOM/REPEAT button and watch the unit's display. There will be a graphic changing to show the different functions: Disc repeat....All Repeat.

Try out the different modes unit you find the one that plays all the discs in the carousel.

Tape players do not operate


Sounds like the belt is slipping or broken. You should first listen with your ear near the cassette door to see if the motor trys to work. Many units use the main belt to work the lift mech. for the heads, If that doesnt have enough grip the motor will spin(Which you can hear lightly) and the unit does nothing.

Good day,i have an aiwa HX-A1000 stereo system with a 3 cd changer,casette player/recorder,and 5.1 surround sound.After having it in storage for several years,i have lost the owner's manual and cannot seem...


there is a problem with the stereo firmware. It is not anything you are doing wrong. It is a common problem with all Aiwa's. If you are handy with electronical repair, you can test and replace the bad resistors. Otherwise, it will have to be taken in for diagnostic testing.

Aiwa Stereo


Same model, same problem. (CX NA-50) I have one that worked great for two years (at best) and I haven't used it since then. I recently decided to look for a solution via the internet.
I read somewhere else that there was a class action settlement with aiwa (now expired) since many of these units had this problem.

Vol problem


Here is the entire troubleshooting section from the manual.

Your problem is presumed to be a shorted speaker wire. I assume you're not getting the failure ONLY at extremely high volume levels.

Care and maintenance
Occasional care and maintenance of the unit and the software
are needed to optimize the performance of your unit.
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft and dry cloth. If the unit surfaces are extremely
dirty, use a soft cloth lightly moistened with mild detergent
solution. Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine
or thinner.
To clean the tape heads
Dirty tape heads cause sound deterioration. After every 10
hours of use, clean the tape heads with a head cleaning
cassette. Refer to the instructions of the cleaning cassette.
To demagnetize the tape heads
Use a demagnetizing cassette after every 20 to 30 hours of
use. Refer to the instructions of the demagnetizing cassette.
Care of CDs
When a CD becomes dirty, wipe it from the center out with a
cleaning cloth. After playing a CD, store it in its case. Do
not keep it in hot or humid places.
Care of tapes
Store tapes in their cases after use. Do not leave tapes near
magnets, motors, television sets, or any source of
magnetism. Do not expose tapes to direct sunlight, or leave
them in a car parked in direct sunlight.

REFERENCE
Troubleshooting
If your unit fails to perform properly, check the following guide
and the relevant sections of the Operating Instructions.
There is no sound.
•Are the speakers and AC power cord connected properly?
The unit shut off suddenly.
•Possibly a short circuit in the speaker terminals.
Disconnect the AC power cord from the AC power outlet
and re-connect the speaker cords correctly.
The unit blacks out when the unit is turned off.
•Is ECO mode set to on?
Erroneous display.
•Reset the unit.
Poor radio reception.
•Check antenna connection. Adjust the antenna to find the
best reception.
•Move unit and antenna away from other electric appliances
and cords.
The tape does not run.
•Is the deck in pause?
Poor tape sound.
•Check for dirty heads. Clean them if needed.
•Use type I (normal) tapes.
Cannot record.
•Is the erasure prevention tab of the tape broken off? If so,
cover the detection slot with adhesive tape.
The CD player works poorly.
•Is the disc correctly loaded?
•Is the disc dirty?
•Is the lens affected by condensation? If so, wait
approximately one hour and try again.
Resetting the unit
If an unusual condition occurs in the display window or the
cassette deck, reset the unit as follows:
1 Press POWER to turn off the power.
If the power cannot be turned off, disconnect the AC power
cord, then plug it in again.
2 Hold down s and press POWER.
Everything stored in memory after purchase is cleared.

Surround Sound using the video feature


You will not get 'surround sound' from this set only stereo sound. The Video/Aux jack at the back of the unit is an input terminal. You can connect the audio part of your TV(if it has a Line Out jack), dvd player or video game console to this input to get the sound through the stereo system. Use a male-to-male RCA cable to make the connection, they are color coded (Red and White). Press the "Video/Aux"  button to select the input terminal.

Tape deck does nothing when play is pressed


Maybe a problem of no power to motor. I own 2 identical Aiwa units, both have tape deck problems. This brand is prone to them They also have nasty habit of tape cassette doors jamming.
1st off you never said how old the unit is. Awia have huge amount of models. Mine are the NX series that came out in black plastic. Most of the others are silver/grey. Honestly, unless you pop side screws and lift the cover off to eyeball anything loose. and none is? And if out of warrenty, the value of fix, mat exceed value of unit.
Sorry, but I see many of these,  of 4-5 yr old units Aiwa brand,
get the heave ho! 
The most stupid thing about this is: for units size, has the best sound of any other brand it's size.. Brilliant for hooking to ones TV sets, for  surround sound!
What I did was get an older getto blaster  that plays tapes to play my tapes on. some of these units are around and in good order, dirt cheap. And most electronic equipment problems cost at least $35  just to have a quick look at your unit.. cost of repair on top?  I brought my 1st one new @ well over a grond. 3 yrs later, 2ns one, exactly the same $15.00 in a charity shop. The  laser unit was dusty. All go in half an hr. Perhaps if it is an older model , look for another mate to it,   It all comes down to costs.
Which is better option... you are the one who has to made the choice. Good luck. Jamz

No sound from stereo


If you can hear a hiss then the spkrs and amp are OK. It sounds like you're not on whichever source you're wanting to hear or it is on mute. Make sure ther is no function enabled that turns the sound off or over-rides it (like a tape monitor or AUX in...).

Clicking sound in tape deck


All Aiwas  are prone to this problem.  The doors are a real pain and easily give up the ghost.  I have 2, both probmatic in this direction.
I have spoken to others about this problem. Seems no easy fix.
Have you in your case, tried leaving and old tape in the tape part of your  unit . The noise you hear, usually starts when tape unit area doors are about to pack a wobbly. Unless under warrenty, proberly,
not worth getting fixed.    It seems something gets weak in the activation part and get a mind of its own.  Very common after about 3 yrs of ownership.  All the best: jamz
