Question about Aiwa NSX-A888 CD Shelf System

Open Question

NSX-A888. Two problems. 1. The tape deck drive belts need replacing. Two of the bands can be replaced easily. The third needs the unit to be dismantled. Is there a service manual for the NSX-A888 available? 2. The volume control only increases the volume. Turning the knob no longer decreases the volume. Is there a fix for this?

SOURCE: i have a nsx-9000 cassette deck will not play.

Make a note of how the belt fits, then remove it and measure the diameter. Then buy a replacement, belts do go bad from time to time, so a new one might cure the problem. Put the diameter size (to the nearest mm result, IE: 50 or 55mm, not 52mm! Into google and "cassette belt" and you should find one for the job.

How can I open AIWA NSX-A508's tape door?


When the deck is clicking when you first power it up, reach inside and turn the capstans by hand and this should disengage the tape head assembly. The problem is the drive belts are slipping and need to be replaced. The door will not open because the head is engaged.

I have a nsx-a508 unit,the 2nd tape deck got stuck i was able to open it but now neither deck plays and the cd player did work when this happened originally but does not work now ,the lights all come...


I think I can help you with the tape part, but as for the CD, that's a whole different story.

First, you should reset the unit by holding down the stop button (clear), and then pressing the power button. Everything stored in memory after purchase is cleared, including the radio stations, clock, etc.

Check if deck 1 is now playing.

I had a similar problem with my AIWA NSX-AJ310, and after some digging up, I realised that the belts were busted. They're not hard to replace though, unless you don't trust yourself to replace them. If you don't, let a qualified technician see about that for you.

The CD player in my system has retired also, so, we're in the same boat as with regard to that issue!!

Hope my solution was helpful!!

I have a sony TC-WR770 twin tape deck. The 1st deck is running with inconsistant speed causeing slurring of sound,also it will not fast forword.Can this be repaired and if so how? or is it now to old.


It could be either a worn roller, but more likely a belt problem. It's often a good idea to replace the belt(s) as the are rubber and wear out easily. They are not expensive either. Drive belts on tape decks are mostly universal. You only need to measure the diameter of each belt in mm and then enter the result in Google as "Cassette drive belt ??mm".
Make a note of how it fits before replacing them, that's if you can do it yourself of course!

It is possible that your Cd and teh tape section has a belt problem. The loading belts of the cd and the tape transport is worrn out and results in non action. Since there is no drive the cd mechanism nor your tape mechanism will work. If you have a help around ask them to open the top cover, remove the tray and look inside for the loading motor of the CD. replace and keep the Cd section out. by removing the connecting corrds very carrefully. ZThe tape deck mechanism is within and you will see the belt worn out. The front panel and the deck assembly can be taken out and the belts can be replaced. Attempt to do the job only if you are familiar with electronics other wise get help from a good reputed service shop to replace the motors. However this is not a expensive work but must involve great caution not to damage any parts with inexperience. I hope you understand and find this helpful. Pune is a great place and if you look around find a good sincere technician to help . Good day

I have a NSX-V70 stereo. Tapes and CD do not work, FM/AM is fine


Your unit needs a little TLC. Let me address the likely problems/solutions:

1) Tape deck stuck - The most common problem here is that the belt has gotten slippery. This has prevented the mechanism from resetting to a known position and that is what prevents the door from opening. Hopefully when you pried it open, nothing bot broken.

2) Both tape drives run from the same motor and use different belts. The same applies to the second deck as the first. The belts are sliping and need to be replaced.

3) The CD lens is probably dirty and needs to be cleaned. The fact that the CD stops and an attempt is made to play it suggests that the optics are working enough to detect the disc. Clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol and that should resoplve the CD problem.

If you have not opened up these before, I would not suggest you start without someone around who has. There are 3 belts that need to be chagned for the cassette section to work. Plan on $15-$20 for the belts.

Replacing bands


Since the belts control the timing of the mechanism, I would not recommend this as a home repair. While relatively simple compared to some, this still is a delicate repair that can easily go wrong. Please bring this unit to an audio repair shop. Expect a parts cost in the $15-$20 range. There are 3 belts inside.

Denon DRM 740 tape does not play


Just bought a unit from a thrift store. Found same problem; FF & RW OK, but play engages then stops. Also noticed buzzing noise when power turned on. Opened unit, found broken capstan drive belt. FF & RW driven from different motor. Buzz was drive motor running freely with no load - when power is on, capstan is driven all the time for fast play/record start. Replaced with rubber band, and it works --- now looking for replacement belt.
