HOW-TO: Exit Demo mode AIWA cdc-r227
As a service to my fellow Aiwa CDC-X227 owners, here are the directions for turning off “demo” mode. It involves three sets of controls: The “SRC” button, the volume control knob and the two up-down switches to the left of the volume control.
1. Press and hold the SRC button until “ILL” appears on the display.
2. Press either the up or down switch until “DE” appears on the display.
3. Rotate the volume control until “DE 0” appears on the display. Don’t touch the stereo for several seconds after that, so that it accepts the command and goes back to its normal display.
Took me 15 minutes searching the web for this solution! Now i’ve got it and no-one can take it from me!
