I have an aiwa AV-D67 and sometimes while watching tv or a dvd, static will start coming out of the subwoofer, center and right channels, the static is relative to the volume (if you turn up the volume it gets louder). I can still here the movie/tv when this occurrs as well as the static. I have checked all of the wires and connections and they are fine. Its starting to do it more often and it is driving me nuts. Sometimes if I slap the receiver it seems to make it stop for a little bit (this may be purely coincidental) any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Static comes from speakers
I think it's a grounding problem. Actually, it's a necessity for all audio-video equipments to get grounded properly. If you don't have a ground connection in your AC plug, your receiver will collect more and more static electricity. As a matter of fact, it decreases the sound quality that you can get from your equipment. I think that the effect of your reaction (slapping the receiver) isn't coincidental. When you touch any metal surface on your receiver (even while slapping) you condact the static electricity to the ground.
I've had a same sort of problem with my receiver. Especially when I connected my laptop computer to the receiver, I heard an annoying distorted sound from the speakers. I found out that it was ground loop, which occurs when the negative (common) signal of the source coincides with the one of the receiver's. As a solution, I grounded my amp, changed all wires with new and shielded ones, and purchased an AC filter. Then, I got rid of the noise. I have to say that the AC filter (Belkin Pure AV Surge Protector, it also includes an AC signal filter)benefited me the most.

Hi. By static, do you mean 'snow' image ? DVD players must be connected to AV inputs and selected as an AV signal, either by using the remote control, either using the local controls in the set itself. If you see, what you call static, means that your TV is on "a" channel without areal input. (antenna inputsignal).
You can use the local TV channel button (-), go all the way down below channel 1. There the AV inputs are located. Good luck.
Don't worry, it's more possible that you have the static electricity and through your stereo this electricity goes to the ground. Try touching another metalic surfasce (refrigirator, oven etc), try to change your shoes (especialy if your stereo is on a carpet floor and you walk on it) Sometimes when we are very nervous the static electricity on our body is higher. So keep calm.
You might have connected your TV/Stereo Receiver up to the wrong audio outputs of the DVD player. Make sure you are coming out of the FRONT left/right audio outputs and not the CENTER?REAR left/right audio outputs.
this could be due to some static
please get your electrical point checked up 1st
is your tv hooked to watch television thru RF or AV
please have the interlink cables
if this does not help get back with more details
Make sure the unit is not swiched to tape monitor. Check to see if all inputs and outputs are wired properly. Unplug unit and let it sit unpowered for a half hour to reset micro-processor which may have locked up. When you power it up again, listen for click of speaker relays. Make sure to turn volume down BEFORE you power up. If none of these work, take unit to pro tech for check up. It just might be a simple fix, cheaper than replacement. Good luck.
I had the same problem, lost the remote during a move. I ended up using a really cheap GE (general electric) universal remote. It's a blue and silver remote that cost $5 at bestbuy. Programming code for Aiwa is 839. Then, pressing the "enter" button on the universal remote brings up the subwoofer menu, and pressing it repeatedly will scroll through the individual volume controls for the other speakers.
As far as I know, there is no way of accessing this menu without a remote. Aiwa dropped the ball on that one.
