Get a E03 error on display when playing CDs

It is not reading the cd. The laser is dirty, out of alignment, or bad. If it is under warranty, contact Aiwa. If it is not, you should just replace it. Just to take the lid off, and find out what is wrong will cost you about $80 at most repair shops. For $120 you can buy a new am fm cd with Ipod control and USB port. Hope this helps.

The CD player isn't inserting

Follow these simple steps:
1. Turn off the Player.
2. Disconnect the Ac Cord (or could be Dc cord in some cases).
3. Keep the unit Off for few minutes.
4. Reconnect the power cable.
5. Power on the player and hit the cd-tray with a screwdriver as it boots.
6. If the Cd which is already on the Slot and is not placed correctly, use the screwdriver to align it with the tray so that it'll sit on the slot properly.
7. Now, press the eject/close button.
You'll be able to eject it and remove the cd or you can try closing the tray with the cd. If the problem persists, let me know.

I wish you good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I just got the aiwa cdc-x227 and the mute is

check for a logo that shows a speaker with a cross(X) across. just switch this back. this is also available on the remote. You could normally find this on the top side so as to mute easily when in a traffic junction. Check if this button is jammed. Also check if the display shows a mute , if not the sound reduction could be a different issue related to the audio output. check if any speaker connections are short, or speakers connections touching the body. Chek on the wiring once again with a multimeter , for any shorting, correct positve voltage and good ground. hope this helps. Good day

I dont know how to rewire the clip that goes into

do you have harness going to your system if so you can match the wire colors together if not you will have to hardwire but keep in mind you will need a 12v tester with a light on it to check your ground lead your acc or ignition and then your direct or constant 12v you will have to check these three wires with a volt meter if you dont have a harness for your vehicle

Car cd player skips on bumps

This can happen for several different reasons. 
1. The dampers (oil filled shock absorbers) are leaking and need to be replaced. You can check this by taking the unit out and opening it up and then remove the CD deck. In each corner of the CD deck you will see a small rubber looking device that the internal mech floats on when a disc is engaged. It is attached to the internal mech by only a small metal peg. Check each corner for these. Make sure they are not leaking anything. It is usually a white looking substance that feels like grease. Ant time even one of them go bad or get popped out of place, it will skip on every bump.
2. Try cleaning the lens. Sometimes a dirty lens will make the CD player skip much easier than it is supposed skip. You can buy a cleaning disc at most retail outlets that sell CD and DVD players. Run it as directed in the instructions. 
3. one or more springs are streched out a little. These mechs have many springs in them and if one is a little streched it will cause skipping. If you find a loose spring, it will need to be replaced.
4. Weak laser output. A weak laser will also cause a unit to skip. If this is the case the laser pick up will need to be replaced. There is no fix for a weak laser other than replacing it.
5. Spindle motor problems. A spindle motor with even a tiny bit of oxidation in the windings can cause skipping when you hit a bump. 
There are also a few other things that can cause this same issue. It is not an easy thing to fix without some training on this type of equipment. 
Is this an "Aiwa"  or is this a factory unit that cmae with the car when it was brand new. I don't think that Aiwa is an OEM radio, but I could be wrong. I fix aftermarket radios only.  So I am not real familiar with all the OEM models. 
If this is an aftermarket Aiwa radio, you should take it to a service center to get an estimate. If it is an OEM radio, it is most likely going to be very expensive to fix and a good aftermarket radio would really serve you better. 
I am sorry if this is not the answer you were hoping to get, but it is the truth so I hope you will not punish the messanger for bringing bad news.
Anything less than a "helpful" rating is a very bad rating meaning that you got no help or that the help was not related to the problem. I spent a lot of time putting this information out here for you for free, so I only ask that I get a decent rating for my trouble.
If you require any more help feel free to post another comment on this thread with any questions you may have. I will be happy to answer them for you.

Car cd player kipping

Is it anti-skip resistance? If not some players have hard problems playing when heavy bumps. Also is it installed correctly? Was all shipping plugs taken out?

Aiwa CDC-X227 - No power to unit

Keep in mind that there are always two fuses in any vehicle that provide power to the radio. One fuse is for switched power, one for constant power. Both fuses need to be good before the radio will work. Often one of the fuses, especially the constant power fuse, is shared with other electrical circuits and may not be labeled as a radio fuse. Check all the fuses in the vehicle, including any fuse box under the hood. See if any other electrical systems in the car aren't working, especially the dome light, cigarette lighter, door chime buzzer, or clock.

AIWA CDC-x227 CDPlayer

GO to WallMart, Kmart, Radio Shack, etc. and get a new connector adapter (plug)...they're reasonably priced, have them for all make/models of cars, and make installing a car stereo a breeze! When you get the one for your specific car, the wiring instructions are quite easy to follow! :-)
