Question about Aiwa CDC-X504MP CD Player
Was driving today, and switching radio stations and somehow it switched me to demo mode. And I have tried everything to get it to work. No buttons work, and I have tried holding down push-menu as stated in the manual. Reset doesn't work either, any help at all would be appreciated

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!

All this week long my Aiwa CDC-X504MP won't work at all, same situation than you all. Tried to make up some button combos with no avail. An hour ago i made it work again. How? 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. Not a good "solution" that is, but it's working again.
errr hope it helps. bye

I've had the same thing happen to me twice. Unfortunately I don't remember what button(s) I pressed to fix the problem. However, I know that I was holding down the "source" button as I pressed another. It seemed like I held it down for a little while then it turned on. There must be something wrong or a weird button combo in order to turn it into demo mode. I'll post again if I can figure out what I did before to fix it.

I just fixed mine. I think it's something with a security lock. My default code seems to be with 6 and 5, so by hitting 665 or 655 I got my radio back to fully function. When this whole mess started I had gone from my radio station set at 6 to 5 and must have hit the buttons in such a way it activated a security lock that only allowed me to change the time or view the demo. Hope this helps....

My solution was similar to this, and I think it may be a security thing. I read a lot of tips, tried everything and then just started pressing the 1-6 numbers a hoard of times, randomly, then pressed the far right double button source/mode and all the sudden I heard the antenna raise up and it worked.
1. While in Demo mode push and hold the "PUSH-MENU" button until "set" appears on the screen.
2. push "Seek" + or - to select Demo
3. turn "PUSH-MENU" to select "demo off" (turn the volume knob)

Same problem, stuck in demo mode. User guide instructions don't work for my case. (Press-and-hold "push-menu" never results in an option to turn off demo mode.)
Anyone have any other ideas?
I also had this just happen. If anyone has any other ideas please let me know!
I am having the same problem. Anyone have an update on what to do?
I've had my AIWA CDC-X504MP for 4.5 years and it was under a 4 year best buy warranty. I was in the middle of changing stations and this happened. Tried Reset and several other things - only button that works is holding down "display" will let me reset the clock - otherwise nothing else works. Does anyone know - is this a fuse issue? I haven't seen anything else online on what to do. I'm planning to get a new car within the next year so I'm not looking to spend 200 on a new cd player if I don't have to. Any ideas?
I also have exactly the same problem with the player stuck in demo mode. I can only get into setting mode of the clock. Otherwise none of the buttons work. Can any one help?
My daughter has the same problem with the CDC-X504MP - display is stuck - i've tried the solutions posted but no luck. please help.
