Question about Aiwa CDC-X204 CD Player

1 Answer

Hi Folks, I have an Aiwa CDC x204 car stereo that seems to be stuck in demo mode. I replaced the battery, so my guess is that this is the default. Upon reading the instructions, it indicates to remove the faceplate and hit the reset button, then hold the volume button until "set" appears on the display. Well, I did and I still can't get it out of demo mode. Any ideas?

This is what worked for me:

  1. Power the radio off (hold the power button in top left corner in for several seconds)
  2. Remove face plate
  3. Hold in reset 10 seconds
  4. Press push-menu dial/button 3 or 4 times
  5. Insert cd and hit source to switch to tuner before cd starts
Not all of these steps may be necessary.
I suspect having the power off before the reset button was the important part.

Buy a new radio, you'll never find just the faceplate... trust me on this one it's not worth the headache.

SOURCE: unresponsive face plate/ buttons

check wiring to make sure all wires r properly connected, sounds like a power problem . if it is an expensive radio and it is broken then its probably worth fixing.if its a cheepie than chunk it and get a new one

Just had aiwa cdc x204 stolen from car but they left wiring harness intack. Cannot find this stereo anywhere. Is there another Aiwa or make that uses same wiring harness?


Most modern car stereos all use a standard plug (the name escapes me at present) so virtually any stereo should just plug in...

If your not sure, pop in to a motor parts place such as halfords and ask them to take a quick look at the wiring in your car... they will tell you weather it is standard or not...
