Aiwa trp 950 needs pressed Play button to operate the radio
Posted 10 July 2012 - 04:12 AM
i got an Aiwa trp 950 that i totally like but it has a problem with the standy-function..
the box only plays radio when i press the tapedeck Play or fastforward button, and its actually on standby an not turned on..
well i actually wouldnt give a s. but the tapedeck makes a lil noise while its running..
i actually havent opened the box before, ill still have to to clean the switches, soooooo does this sound like a typical problem with a simple solution to anyone ? :)
thanks in advance for any tips and hints, daniel

That should be put to off to make it completely working .
If not...probably clean the power switch with a little contact cleaner

im using kontakt-spray the tuner 700 and gold 2000.. thats an amazing combination i found out after reading lots of hifi threads about the right sprays..
well im really curious if i find this hidden switch ;))

That switch can get stuck in the stand-by positon sometimes. If you do it holding down the swtich and letting back up gently, it will not be enough "shock" to allow it to pop free.
Be careful not to bang down on the switch to break it...just tap down on it real fast, kind of like hitting the same key on a keyboard repeatedly... that should be enough...
Good luck! Aiwa TPR-950 is a great boombox! One of my all time favorites.

sorry i just saw your reply just now.. i tried it with the on/standby switch but its no use... i guess ill open the box , give it a good cleaning and may that solves the problem.. but as u said its an amazing boombox! it looks amazing, very good build quailty and absolutly amazing highs.. even better than my aiwa 660... both together sound jus perfect ;)
