The buttons below the main display in my Aiwa CDC-MA01 no longer work. They don't do anything. Since these buttons are in a moveable pannel that moves every time the radio is turned on or off, I figure that the movement (the radio is about 4 years old, so it's been through thousands of cycles) has finally broken some of the connecting wires between this moveable pannel and the main chassis.
Question: Anyone know if this is likely to be repairable by a technically savy end user? [I'm more than technically savy, I'm a degreed EE and have FCC radio licenses ... both amateur and commercial. But flex cables, etc., can't really be fixed and must be replaced. Wire cables, however, I can probably fix. Soldering is not a problem. I have not yet removed the unit or taken it apart.]
Same thing, some of the buttons on the bottom flip panel work, the important ones do not. select is the most important one that does not function. I opened the unit up and checked all the connections, the ribbon cable seemed to be connecting, i can only conclude it is chip thing, as the switches under buttons rang the bell on my continuity tester.
it is very easy to open up and put back to together.

Check BOTH of your power connections and your ground too. Make sure you actually have 12v at each connection and don't have a blown fuse etc. If you are lucky then you will solve the problem. Good luck.
