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.

I recently bought this laptop and thought that it was able to play blu-ray movies. When I put a blu-ray in and push play, it say that there is no disk in player. Also, if all I have is a dvd player, can...


No disk means that the BR disk is not recognized as present . Don't push play, open Computer instead and see what the disk is labeled: if it appears as a DVD-RAM, you have to install a new BR player unit - the optical unit itself. If the disk appears with its name then the software player you were trying to use works only for dvd's, you need a BR one and the correct codec. You can get both from here

The system or DVD recorder turns off itself


It could be because your unit is overheating. Shutting itself off is your player's way of protecting itself. Causes can be form anything to direct exposure to sunlight, Something heavy is on top of the player, to disk speed being to fast.

Volume turned up, kenwood shuts off briefly...


I had this same exact problem when my last older Kenwood Marine stereo cooked itself while I had it up loud for a few weekends on the lake. (smelled like it had burned inside). I went out and bought a new Kenwood KMR-550u stereo deck. (I do not have an additional amp). I hooked it up to the exact connections where my older Kenwood stereo unit had been hooked up, as I never had a problem with this for the past three years until it failed after smelling of burning elelectrical. I had chalked the problem up to heavy rain we had one day. Every time I turned up the volume, sometimes up to 27 out of 35 possible, or 29, or 32, the stereo would suddenly shut off as if I had turned it off. After a few seconds the stereo would come back on, but unless I was quick enough to turn down the volume it would do it again right away. Of course on a boat, we were beached in a cove and the engine was not running when I encountered this. I searched the internet finding hundreds of similar complaints and several dozen theories of all types, but only a couple that pointed me towards the power (voltage) idea as the problem. I put a volt meter on the positive & negative wires powering the stereo. I watched as I gradually turned up the volume, the voltage on the power wire gradually decreased from 12.5 volts, down into the 11 range, and as it hit 10.9 or 10.8 volts it shut off typically around a volume of 32. The red power wire in my boat that never seemed to have an issue with my old stereo until it fried was determined to actually be inadequate for the power flow for the new Kenwood, and probably was the culprit of my failed older unit. I offer this sound advice: Run a new pair of positive & negative wires directly from the battery (with an appropriate fuse of course (the deck has a 10 amp fuse in it's back so I would use that at the battery) to the stereo. Check the voltage as you turn the volume up into the high 20's and low 30's to ensure you are still getting voltage in the mid to high 11-12 volt range. The stereo is designed to require a minimum of 10.8 volts to operate, and when it drops below that it protects itself and shuts down.

Dehumidifier keeps shutting itself off.


For some reason it is overheating and shutting itself off. There is a law that all electronics are supposed to have a point to where it automatically shuts off if it gets too hot from a malfunction or loose connection in the circuit board. It is to protect the consumer. You either need to take it to a tech or get rid of it. Get a new one.
