STR8-30 Pitch control problem

I've heard this from one other person so I know it is an issue because it is weird on how it would ever happen. On both of my Stanton STR8-30's the pitch control does not have the range from 0 to -2.

when you have the slider at 0, the red lights are still... as you move the slider up (slower) the light remains still and then in an instant ( i mean nano ) the red lights jump was slower and now you are at -2 on the pitch when you've barely moved it. This has happened on both of my tables. WTF?

SOURCE: Stanton ST150 turntable won't spin

Hello DeKay,

I just had a spindle lock issue this past Sunday at my gig. I had the turntables out in my car and brought them in. I let then warm up for 2hrs before plugging them in.

Everything was good. Then mid set my right side turntable started spinning really fast and then DEAD STOP.

I was pushing the platter and it really hard to turn. I took off the platter and tried to turn it with my hand. It was dead locked, WTF?!!

So I limped through with one turntables since I use Traktor Scratch Pro and made it through the whole night successfully.

I searched the net and it was suggested to lubricate the 1200 spindle with 15W40 motor oil. Since the motor design is indentical, I picked up some 10W40 motor oil since I couldn't find 15W40.

I oiled both turntables to be on the safe since. I tapped the spindle on the locked turntable to help loosen it.

I drove back home which is pretty much an hour drive and let the tables sit for another 2 hrs.

I decided to grab a thick towel and vice grips to work on the locked spindle.

Clamping down on the towel with the vice grips on the brass fitting for the platter I was able to free the spindle quite easily.

I was then able to turn it by hands so I did in both forward and reverse directions to work the oil down into the spindle bearings.

I put the platter back on and spun it manually to check for resistance, it was spinning nicely!

Plugged in the turntable, set the pitch at 0 and watched the stobe dots. There was no waver in the strobe dots. YAAAAAAAY!

My turntable is back to new and since I only use them on the road they stay stored most of the time.

So I would suggest just oiling the spindles every so often to keep them tip top.

Hope this helps you!

Peace,
DJ Quartz

I've heard that there are some screen issues with the iPhone 5, have anyone experienced any of them?


I personally didn't have any screen issues with my iPhone 5 although a friend of mine told me that he have experienced a bubble effect. When he presses the phone, no matter where, there were a certain spot on the bottom of the phone that glowed in a bubble shape, you can watch the attach video to see is you got the same problem http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4kYbiygU6A&feature=player_embedded

You seem to have some feedback hum from somewhere. I would think it might be caused by a faulty connection somewhere.

My volume up on the Harmony 880 won't work. I've heard that one person did take it apart to clean the contacts, but that didn't solve the issue. Any suggestions? I don't even care if I...


If the buttons used to work then yeah it sounds like a hardware issue. You can go ahead and take the remote apart, but I don't think you will be able to fix it, unless you are good at soldering. Cleaning the contacts alone won't help. This same thing happened to the most used buttons on my Harmony One, and I just assigned the commands to the screen, so I could continue using the remote without those buttons.
If you want to try assigning the buttons to the screen, the steps in this article by Logitech will help:

I hope this helps.

Phone freezed


www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMWwcizC144
I've had that happen a few times with my v620. Moto's software is notoriously buggy but it shouldn't be a huge problem. Sometimes my phone will restart, sometimes I have to remove the battery to restart it but it doesn't happen often.

I've heard that if you turn your phone off for a few minutes every day, it can lessen the times it freezes. I don't know if that's true or not but I do it every night before I put my phone on its charger. I haven't. I did a fair bit of research before I purchased my v620 and I knew it had somewhat buggy software. I also purchased it used, so I don't think I had a warranty.

If your phone is still under warranty, I would suggest having it sent it to see if they have firmware fixes for some of the issues. It couldn't hurt.

I love my v620 (I had wanted a v6XX since I first saw the v600 in September of 2003) so I'm okay with sometimes having to restart but if I could get that fixed, I totally would. Call and report the issue to SAMSUNG and if they tell you to call Motorola, call and report it to them, too. By reporting it, you'll help them (I hope) build a firmware fix for the issue. Or, it could just be an issue with your phone and they'll tell you to send it in. I have had this happen 3 times with my i530, and it required me to remove the battery to get it working again.
I have to say with all of my other Moto's this has never happened and am suprised this one does it. It has cost me 2 times missing pages for Investigations which luckily others called me on my other cell to let me know about it.

I would do what MOTOhooligan suggested & call Nextel and Motorola about this, see if they know of a problem with the software & maybe can give you a solution for the problem.

I know next month at our meeting I am going to see the person in charge of our Nextel's to see if he knows anything or will give me a new unit.
