Question about Aiwa NSX-AJ20 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

I have an Aiwa nsx-aj20. The CD player skips like crazy. I've tried a couple of the CD based cleaners but it seems like if I put the cleaner in tray 1, the CD rotates to tray 2 or 3. When I move the cleaner around the same thing happens. How DOES one clean the laser lense or get the unit to stop skipping? Thanks

If that is the case that the cleaning disc skip, i will advice you clean your laser lens manually, follow this steps to clean your laser lens manually.

Remove the outer casing of the CD player. Remove the screws that mount the top casing onto the bottom of the CD player and slide the top casing off. This will expose the CD deck, which houses the laser pickup lens Find the lens. The lens will be glass and under the CD clamp. The lens will probably have a blue tint to it. If you are having trouble finding the lens, you could shine a light on the components and watch for the reflection Use a cotton swab and some spirit to gently wipe the lens. Just a quick scrub will do. Dry the laser pickup lens with the other end of the swab Give the lens a few seconds to dry and replace the covering of the CD player. Test the efficiency of the player. If necessary, repeat the process, if the problem still persist, replace the lens.

Take care.

Common Problem with AIWA 3 disc machines. I have 3 in my service shop right now. For tray not rolling in on it's own, the drive rollers have to be changed, along with the Drive Belt. Also, for CD not reading, try CD lens cleaner.
