Question about Aiwa CDC-MA01 CD Player

1 Answer

Aiwa CDC-MA01 can't change station

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.

Hi Folks, I have an Aiwa CDC x204 car stereo that seems to be stuck in demo mode. I replaced the battery, so my guess is that this is the default. Upon reading the instructions, it indicates to...

This is what worked for me:
  1. Power the radio off (hold the power button in top left corner in for several seconds)
  2. Remove face plate
  3. Hold in reset 10 seconds
  4. Press push-menu dial/button 3 or 4 times
  5. Insert cd and hit source to switch to tuner before cd starts
Not all of these steps may be necessary.
I suspect having the power off before the reset button was the important part.

The panel will no longer recognize some of the buttons. for example, the source button doesn't work nor the push-menu. the power and eject button still works. How do i fix this?

it is possible ;you may have a bad switch. if you have a multimeter, try checking all the switches. if one or more is less than a few megaohms, it may be bad.

Stuck in demo

I had the same issue and was about to give up.
cleaning, key combos and such didn't work out.

Solved the dirty way, as described some comments above:

"Just took the faceplate from the "push-menu" button and hit it against a hard surface [not too hard but not too soft hits] and thats it, it worked again."

ah, the good manners!

Buy a new radio, you'll never find just the faceplate... trust me on this one it's not worth the headache.

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.

Won't reset/no input on bottom bar

Yes, the ribbon cable has gone bad on you. It's about 15$ itself and replacing it is easy.
