Question about Aiwa XR-C303RW Shelf System

Open Question

Fix it - how?

My system was disconnected from power while I was gone for a couple of weeks. When I hooked it up to power, I get the "set up" across the screen on stereo system - which locks up the CD-RW "record" and so there's no more recording ability to a CD from tapes and/or cd, etc. The system is only 5 years old and had I known that this was going to cause a problem and require major $$ for repair, I would have never purchased it. Warranty is history! Any suggestions other than incinerator?? Thanks! I've tried the on/off/ like owners manual says but to no avail. I've called AIWA "customer no service" and that's no help!

SOURCE: I have a NSX-V70 stereo. Tapes and CD do not work, FM/AM is fine

Your unit needs a little TLC. Let me address the likely problems/solutions:

1) Tape deck stuck - The most common problem here is that the belt has gotten slippery. This has prevented the mechanism from resetting to a known position and that is what prevents the door from opening. Hopefully when you pried it open, nothing bot broken.

2) Both tape drives run from the same motor and use different belts. The same applies to the second deck as the first. The belts are sliping and need to be replaced.

3) The CD lens is probably dirty and needs to be cleaned. The fact that the CD stops and an attempt is made to play it suggests that the optics are working enough to detect the disc. Clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol and that should resoplve the CD problem.

If you have not opened up these before, I would not suggest you start without someone around who has. There are 3 belts that need to be chagned for the cassette section to work. Plan on $15-$20 for the belts.

Countax c600h mower won't start! New battery last week today tho turn key and nothing. Lights all on, brake and seat switches good and even tried taking 12v from battery direct to starter

If you put a new battery in last week and it won't turn over now then you either have a short across the battery or the generator on the tractor has gone bad. A lot of times dead or low batteries will have enough power to turn on the lights but not turn over the motor. Disconnect the battery leads and put an ohm meter across them with the ignition switch turned off. You should see a very very high resistance.

Magents prints in thin, almost non-existent threadlike lines

I'm sorry you got that advice to reset your counter, your joy will be gone again when the ink starts leaking out of your printer and the more you clean the more ink will go to the already full absorber. Your paper advance will stop first when ink covers the encoder wheel for the main roller drive. The best you should do now is to have the ink absorber replaced, and get a new printhead to resolve your printing problems. If you really like this printer you should spend a few bucks to fix it right and keep it working much longer...

I sounds like you have blown the woofer. open the unit and check. first disconnect the leads on the woffer, then use an ohm meeter. If you don't have an ohm meeter use a 9v battery across the speaker terminals. If you hear a thunk when the battery touches the terminals the speaker is okay. If tyou don't it's gone. If the ohm meeter reads some number like 4 to 9 the speaker would be okay. If it reads nothing or 000 then it's gone. If you need a speaker you can order it from Pro Line Music 215-736-8055

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Probably a new problem given the age of the TV. If you already haven't done so, try unplugging the power for about 10 minutes, plug back in and try again.

2002 Ford ZX2 electrical problem

Go to your nearest autozone and have your charging/staring system checked. If they find a problem with the alternator, that may explain your battery problems. If your think that one of your electrical systems may be pulling a "parasitic draw" or constant load, that is more complicated to diagnose. To diagnose a constant draw of your battery , you would need a ammeter connected inline with each circuit. Disconnect each fuse and connect a amp meter where the fuse would go, and record your resutls with the car off. The circuit with the most amperage is where I would start looking.

Normsbackup again,

Hi norms,

I've been away for a couple of weeks, and just returned.

If you've already tried repeating the previous fix to no avail, it sounds like the player might have a physical hardware fault of some kind. If it's out of warranty, that would unfortunately condemn it to the trash bin.

Pioneer xv-dv424 power problem?

Try disconnecting all the speakers and turn it on. If it stays on, then a speaker (most likely sub) is gone and shorted, causing the system to shut down to prevent it from being damaged. Hooking up one at a time and powering on should help you find the bad one. If it still shuts down with all speakers disconnected, then you've got internal problems with the system itself. Time to visit a repair man.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!
