Feedback noise from mixer

I have a pioneer djm-600 and I'm getting feedback noise from it when Iattempt to record. I've tried both stereo and phono outputs and thesame noise occurs. I have a aluminum plated copper wire i'm trying toground it with, but I dont have anything/know what to ground it to? andI dont know if that will solve the problem but I've asked some of myfriends and they seem to think that's it

    I'm recording onto a laptop, and i figured out that when i unplug the power cord to the computer, the buzz/humm noise totally goes away. But my battery is shot and I only get like 15 or so minutes of use out of it on a full charge... so besides getting a new battery, and thoughts on what i can do? thanks!

Your mixer is already grounded, and does not need any additional grounding. It is grounded through the Power Cord.

Now, the feedback might be coming from one of the units you have connected to the mixer. The issue could also be the cable you are connecting to your recorder. Are you recording to a computer, or to some other external recorder (CDR / DVR / MDR, etc?) - try a different cable. Also try the different outputs on the mixer - you have 2 balanced line outputs you can record directly from. Don't use the RECORD OUT line, it's an unbalanced line, and if you want a good quality signal to record, your best bet is to use the XLR outputs. However, that might be connected to your amp or something.

What do you have going to the unit? Disconnect everything, and try by connecting each item 1 by 1, to eliminate where this feedback is coming from. Also, check for any ground loops that you might have, if you have a lot of equipment hooked up in your set up. (Educate yourself on Ground Loops)

If all else fails, get yourself a HUM ELIMINATOR.

    Power cords are always a source of ground issues when they have alot of current running through it, are not properly shielded (like generic power cords), or if your running your power cords right next to your audio lines. Try and keep them separated, or shielded from each other.

    I would suggest replacing your power supply, with an original developed for your computer. If it is no longer made, then I would suggest getting a high quality power supply.

    FYI, the transformer on laptop power supplies (the big black box on the line), emits some powerful signals, because this is where the power is transformed from your laptop and converted to be connected to the wall. Otherwise, it would damage your laptop. This transformer, is usually inside on regular PC's, but because of it's size, it would require a large housing on the laptop... not making it as portable or compact as one would like.

    A HUM ELIMINATOR will also help with minimizing any ground issues on the line. Hope this helps.

I repair DJM 600 for many years. :) The reason for the burning of IC 557 (+8V H 600mA ) is invalid amplifier for headphones!!!
Replace IC 310 and IC 312 (in big mainboard), and replace
IC 557with original fuse 600mA
!!!!!CHECK YOUR HEADPHONES!!!!!! This is the cause burning amps.!!!!!

There is no output from the right side of rec out.The left side works fine


Most likley a simple fault on the phono connector and the board it's soldered to. Check for dry joints and cracks where the sockets are mounted.

Pioneer DJM-600 Bad feedback when i turn up the master volume


It's not your ground wire with the issue, but your RCA cables. Try disconnecting both turntables, and connect 1 at a time, and do the same test, this way you can isolate the problem. Once you've isolated the problem, then you'll need to have the RCA cables replaced on your turntable.

You might also want to check the Cartridges as well. Sometimes a bad cartridge or headshell connection will cause this issue. Worst case scenario, its your tonearm, but that should be test last.

Also, on the rear of your mixer, there is a gain volume pot, make sure this is not maxed out. Keep it about 3/4 of they up. Again, this is on the rear of your mixer where you connect everything.

There is a master gain volume control on the rear of the mixer, where you connect everything. Make sure it's not down.

If it's fine, then maybe them being outside caused an issue. How cold is cold? If your talking freezing, then maybe there is some issues with the solder on the pc boards. You'll have to take it to a service center at this point.

I would say, try connecting a CD player to all the channels, and try from there. If it's still the same, then you need professional help.
