Question about Aiwa CDC-X144 CD Player

1 Answer

Aiwa cdc-x144 I have this player unit on my boat, it has been installed for four years. It has recently started shutting itself off from what appears to be a heavy draw of power when I turn it up past volume 25. No electrical changes have been made to the boat. Any advice?? Mike

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.

Aiwa CDC-X517M Car CD Receiver . . .


The part you are looking for is called the "wiring harness" or sometimes called the "dc cord"

The best way to buy this (and you do need it to use the radio) is to find a local repair center that repairs aiwa car stereos. Ask them if they can order the wiring harness for an Aiwa CDC-X517M. I don't know what Aiwa charges for them, but it should not cost more than about $30 or $40. Some are cheaper and some are a little more.

I did a search for it on google and could not find anything. Very unusual.

The four spots you refer to are the RCA jacks to connect to an external amplifier. 2 are red and 2 are white.

That thing that plugs in above the 15 amp fuse is for your wiring harness.

The circular thing is a din cable jack and that is used for an external CD changer.

Once you get the wiring harness you should take it and the radio to a place that does car stereo installations and they can do the rest for you.

I hope this helps you out, and if it does I would really appreciate a good rating. Most people we help here never rate your help :( and we do most of this for free hoping for a good rating as a thank you for the help :).

Hope you have a great day,
Dave
