Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

Volume nob wont work


The contacts on the volume encoder are dirty. The only fix for it is to take it off of the board, open it up and clean the contacts. You need to be pretty handy with electronics in order to pull this off. I don't think you can find a replacement encoder any more. Sony bought Aiwa years ago, but doesn't really support the product with parts anymore.

You can try contact cleaner. Spray some in (with unit turned OFF) and move the knob up and down several times stop to stop. then try to see if it helped.

Hi Your Problem need an expert Technician, this Aiwa stereo has the digital type volume control that gives pulses to the cpu to make volume up / Down. Solution to be fixed by a technician: - Remove the volume from the front board, disassemble it and clean the conductive parts inside it then reassemble back and check. Good Luck Toufic G. Malek
