My problem is actually with a NSX-AJ22 Compact Disc Stereo System with 2 cassette tape decks. The tape deck on the right or "B" or "#2" deck is the problem. I have a tape in it that I can not get out. The deck will not open when I push on the door. When I turn on the stereo system the faulty deck starts making clicking noises then stops. I am unable to play the tape in that deck. I need professional help. Please advise me with your expertise. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter. Take care and have a most wonderful day and an even better weekend. Sincerely, Michael Norman [email protected]

All Aiwas are prone to this problem. The doors are a real pain and easily give up the ghost. I have 2, both probmatic in this direction.
I have spoken to others about this problem. Seems no easy fix.
Have you in your case, tried leaving and old tape in the tape part of your unit . The noise you hear, usually starts when tape unit area doors are about to pack a wobbly. Unless under warrenty, proberly,
not worth getting fixed. It seems something gets weak in the activation part and get a mind of its own. Very common after about 3 yrs of ownership. All the best: jamz
One or more of the output transistors has failed or you have a bad speaker. Try disconnecting both speakers and turning on the unit. If it still shuts down, then the transistors are likely to be defective. These can be replaced for about $15-$25 plus labor at any service shop that handles audio gear.
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.
Make a note of how the belt fits, then remove it and measure the diameter. Then buy a replacement, belts do go bad from time to time, so a new one might cure the problem. Put the diameter size (to the nearest mm result, IE: 50 or 55mm, not 52mm! Into google and "cassette belt" and you should find one for the job.
