Question about Aiwa Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

I have an old Aiwa DX-666 cd player. It has developed a fault. When I insert a cd into the player, press play I get an "ERR" error message. It seems that the laser tries to start but can't. I suppose the laser is dead ?

G'day
If it is not reading the disc Table of Contents, you will most likely have a lazy spindle motor or laser problem. Parts are still readily available for this unit. They use an RF310 spindle motor, and the laser is a sony KSS210.
If you are inclined, you could have a go at repairing it. I suggest cleaning the laser lens with a cotton wool bud(Qtip) moistened slightly with windex, then polished with a dry one to remove any smears. Lens cleaning discs are not worth spending money on, as they seldom work.
Happy to answer any questions that you may have. Cheers
regards robotek

If the unit spins the disk but you still get this error, Then the optical laser unit would be the issue.

since this unit is discontinued I would doubt you find a part for it to fix the player.

You could try a cleaning kit, its a cd that has little brushes on it that you put inside that will clean the lens.

Error message (protect) cd plays then goes silent then plays again. have cleaned laser several times with cd cleaner disk.


Dirty lasers don't cause "protection" problems. Are you sure thay message is displayed on the CD player? That word is nowhere in its manual.

I have an Aiwa stereo cd player that only plays certain cd's but not the new ones, it is model cs-na222


Some Aiwa players will not play burned, non-closed or expanded limit cds (CD of 700MB or overburned to 750MB).

When you say new cds do you mean purchased pressed cds or ones you created?

Cd player comes up with err message


Oh, i had this problem several times... look, the best answer that i can give you is to buy a new one, there's sony's cd-players that are great, me and my father have. now, if you want to stay with this cd player just insert the cd several times until it will play. but again, you better buy a different one.

Denon udcm m7 cd player often reads ERR on play and eject


Try cleaning the laser first. Take care, because it is delicate.

Some instructions of how to clean a CD laser:
http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-a-CD-Player

If the cleaning does not fix the fault, it is possible that the laser is weak, or there are some problems in the electronics in the CD player. This is not something you will be able to service yourself, unless you are properly trained, have experience, and have the proper setup to perform CD player servicing.

In most cases these CD players are not cost effective to service. You can contact the orignal manufacture for details or any recomendations.
