    thanks for responding. my first time here. the crossfader on the mixer is replacable and it has no adjustment ( none that i can see anyway). all of the sound activation is on the extreme left and right 10mm which means that there's a huge mid section that does nothing. what i want is either a fader that responds from the centre position (gradual curve ) or maybe there is a modification to found for mixers of this nature ( with no curve adjust). what do you think? regards, ray.

    thanks for your input on that, its a new mixer, crossfader should be o.k, i suspect that this model is just that way . i'll keep diggin' though .

Hi Ray

Sounds like the fader has reached the end of its life. It should fade smoothly from one side to the other with equal audio from both lines in the middle. . You can get adjustable rate faders, but not for this model. if you do a search for a replacement (click here) there are plenty of places around the world to source one from. They are easy enough to change, overpriced in my opinion, but they dont miss you when it comes to replacements. Changing the fader will fix your problem I am sure. Thanks for using fixya. Good luck

    you need to go for a pro type mixer to get the setup you seek. Sorry, you never said it was new, or I would have assumed otherwise. Just when you said there is section in the middle that did nothing, I thought you meant no audio! It is a little clearer now. the type of fader you need is this but it wont fit the model you have, only the pro range type mixers. I was going to suggest this tpo you, but I misunderstood your problem...

HOW CAN I CONNECT A MIXER TO A TECHNICS SA-DX940 AV


I used the manual downloaded from http://www.manuals365.com/technics/sadx940.html

Try using the final stereo output of the mixer as the input to the CD or Tape or VCR inputs.and use the switches on the fromt of the DX940 as necessary.
The specificatios state input sensitivity is 27 mY so your mixer needs a low output..
No reason it shouldn't work.

Not powering on


To troubleshoot amplifiers when it's not starting up

check the base to base voltage of driver transistors might be too high.

Make sure that the amplifier's ground wire is tightly attached. If it doesn't look too good then take it out and clean it. Use a metal brush to clean that area.

Low power may cause your amplifier not to turn on. Make use of voltmeters to check if your amplifier is getting the right amount of power for it to work. Amplifiers need 110 volts or less to function if the power coming in does not reach that it means you have la defective power cable. If the power is alright and it reaches a minimum of 110 volts, and your amplifier still doesn't turn on that means that there is a problem with its power supply. Checking an inline fuse helps you to determine the appropriate amp ratings when you troubleshoot amplifiers. This is the best way to troubleshoot amplifiers with power problems.

To troubleshoot amplifiers that seems to be on standby mode

Look into your input sensitivity. An input control allows you to match output voltage that is coming from the main unit going to the amplifier then to the stereo speaker. The amplifier shuts down if the gains are
adjusted too high. This is simply because it overheats when it is set too high thus it automatically shuts off. When you troubleshoot amplifiers and this happens you will notice that the volume gets lower even if the setting is too high. Be aware of the optimal levels of the components when you troubleshoot amplifiers.

Your speaker's electrical impedance may also contribute as to why your amplifier may be turned on but doesn't seem to work. Impedance is the amount of current which flows with a specific voltage throughout the transistors, capacitors, etc. Just see to it that your amplifier and speakers equal in impedance range when you troubleshoot amplifiers. Use the voltmeter to check the impedance range when you troubleshoot amplifiers.


Take care..

I have a new set up and i need a step by step instruction on how to set up the mixer to the amp and the decks to the mixer/amp


if this is a dj type set up, the mixer should have a main output (RCA or XLR), that is what you connect to the input on the amp, each deck should have RCA outputs, depending on if they are turntables or cd players, plug the turntables into the phono channel inputs on the mixer and if they are cd players, plug them into the line inputs on the mixer

How to connect microphone to Yamaha RX-V365 as a PA system.


Home-theatre receivers don't have microphone inputs. If you want to use the receiver as an amplifier in PA system, you need to use some kind of mic pre-amp or a mixer with mic inputs.
For PA mixer is needed anyway almost every time and all mixers have at least one mic input (with a pre-amp). Mixers have line-level output(s), which you can connect to the analog input of receiver.
Using receiver as an amp in PA has advantage that you have 5 channel amp. When using high sensitive PA speakers (as oposed to less sensitive Hi-fi home speakers), you can get good performance with the power rating of receiver. You could even use 2 separate channels for subwoofers and 2 channels for satelite speakers - but for that you would need a receiver with 5.1 analog inputs and special device called crossover which would divide the output from mixer into low-frequency signal and high-frequency signal which you would then connect to the front and rear analog inputs. But with RX-V365 you can use only 2 channels with analog input

How do I replace the crossfader on my Numark 5000FX mixer


Hi Dannyyoung

Remove the face plate of the mixer (7 Philips screws) and remove all the knobs and any pot retaining nuts. The you will then be able to get access to the fader to replace it. Any dramas, fell free to ask away

Hooking up a turn table


You should get a turntable adapter. They adjust the impedance so they can be plugged into a typical auxiliary input. Or you get a DJ mixer; most can do the same thing. I have an old Realistic Stereo mixer that does the job, and it has two phono inputs, as well as a Tape input. Very handy for this purpose. Go to Radio Shack if your budget is tight, but a pro DJ mixer would probably be the best solution for an audiophile.
