Question about Aiwa CDC-X144 CD Player
Being on a boat for 4 years may indicate that there could be some water damage on the main board. If you can take it out and remove the bottom panel to look at the circuit board you may be able to see if there is any water damage. You would be surprised at how water can get into places that seem water tight.
If you find any corroded area of the board, try using an old toothbrush or something like that to remove the corrosion. You can use rubbing alcohol to help remove it if you don't have anything made for electronics to use.
Also look inside the radio on the other side of the board if you can. You may see some water damage there as well. since it does turn on and play, cleaning it may fix your problem. But once it gets water damaged, the clock starts ticking on how long it will still play. Once the copper circuit traces have been exposed to the elements they continue to corrode over time.
If it is a power loss issue that has nothing to do with water damage, the first culprit is always the output ic. you would need to have it replaced. I don't know what IC this unit has, but most can be purchased and the number is usually on the IC.
