Aiwa XR-FD5 MD Stereo System - MD Player not working My XR-FD5 system works fine except for the Mini Disc player. Each MD placed into the MD slot is draw in, "MD Reading" appears in the screen, then after 30 seconds or less "Disk Error" appears and the MD is ejected. These MDs play fine on my car MD player (yes, I have an MD player in the car!) and on a Sony MD component player. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: CD player

All this cd systems have the same problem. If you're using burned cd's sometimes they don't work so you need to close the session after burning in your burning program. If you're using original cd's it means that the device needs to be cleaned up (especially the lens) because the structure of a 5 cd combo device gets very dusty after a while. Also from my experience after cleaning it put a cd in each deck (even if it's off) so they could prevent it getting dustier again. Hope it helps, good luck!!

First, you should never use commercial cleaners on CDs or cassette heads. They can create more problems than cures.
Unit may have bad disk motor or optical pick-up

SOURCE: doesn't accept md's

The manual says "C13/Disc Error: The system cannot read the disc information correctly. mEject the MD once, then insert it again."
It seems this error turns up when the system cannot read the disc properly, one reason for which is a dirty/dusty lens. Try a minidisc lens cleaner if you haven't already.

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.

I have an aiwa nsx 5200 mini system the cd player broke


Soooooooo many people have complained about this system not reading discs properly, yet the solution is incredibly simple. All you need to do is calibrate the lens, and you can do this without even opening the stereo! Here's how:

With the stereo all unplugged, turn it around so the back is facing you.

Now use a flashlight and, looking through the grating on the back, approximate where you think the cd lens mechanism would be. You should see 2 8-pin connector wires side by side (one red and one white) and to their right a small black circle screw type thing.

Using a screw driver, turn the screw thing about 1/10 of a revolution clockwise.

Plug in, and test with a clean cd. If nothing happened, repeat the procedure turning the screw thing in tiny increments (don't over do it.) Eventually, the cd player should recognise the cd. Keep fine tuning and testing until you've found the "sweet spot" where it recognizes and plays cds optimally.

Overall, you should NOT have to turn any more than a full revolution, and even half a revolution is pushing it. What you are really doing by turning this screw is fine tuning the "data reading point" of the laser. Too close and it will focus on the area between the cd and the lens, causing failure to recognize the disc. Too far and it will focus past the data perhaps recognizing the disc but not being able to read it. I believe the major problem with these players is that as they settle in, the area between the lens and cd changes. This would cause a gradual degrading in performance until the player finally failed to recognise any data at all (which is exactly how mine went personally.) There isnt a problem with the quality of the lens itself, therefore it is very fixable!

I have heard that all 3cd Aiwa Mini-systems share this problem so, as long as the calibration tuning screw is exposed through the grating on the back, this fix should work for any of the Aiwa mini-systems with this particular problem. If the screw isnt exposed, it is still possible to get at by opening and dismantling the player. (Unfortunately, i did not originally notice that the screw was accesible through the grating, so i went about pulling the entire system apart and wasting hours of my life. You can thank me later for saving you this tedious trouble as you're listening to cds on your newly fixed player ;-) )

If this doesn't work, or doesn't fix the problem completely, try cleaning the lens. You can do this by either by using a cd lens cleaner (looks like a cd with a brush built into it) or opening up the stereo and using a soft cloth on the lens. You may also want to try putting the screw back to its starting point and using the same procedure but turning the screw counter-clockwise. (I personally had to turn clockwise but who knows, maybe your player settled in differently.)

As for the mechanism itself, i have no idea. I did notice, however, that the lifting mechanism sometimes picks the cd up off-centered causing failure to play. You can semi-fix this by holding the stereo at an angle while it picks up the cd or placing it off-centered in the tray. Its annoying, but it works :)

Stereo problems


I would have to say that both of these sound as though they are probably beyond economical repair.

With the first unit you mention, either the panel with the switches on needs replacing or the logic (the brain inside) is on it's way out.

On the other system, either the lenses need cleaning or the lasers are on the way out for both MD & CD. You can try cleaning the lenses first, it might help.

What I would very much recommend in the future is to get a system made of seperates. Then, if one source goes down, you're not left with no music while it's being serviced. If you go to Richer Sounds they'll give you a part-exchange allowance for your old hi-fi(s) and if you buy the warranty & never use it they will give you 100% of your money back. Every one's a winner!

Aiwa xr-ms5 cd recognition problem


If your player won't recognize a disc, make sure the CD is properly loaded and not scratched, and that the lens is clean. Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully. Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function. good luck :-)
