I have just repaired this same fault, check voltage with test meter on the main board from the power supply it is labeled with 0v -12 +12 and 5v (two of these) if the voltages are either low or rather high (usually within 5%) replace all the electrolytic capacitors on the power supply PCB ,( it's the small one in the corner next to mains inlet.) This should fix it for about £10.00. Hope this helps

Why does the light in the front panel dims and lightens constantly


Possible there is a fault in the feed voltage to the display as the power supply can be pulsating. Please check the voltage on the display panel using a analogue multimeter and if it will shows a drifting signal the power supply unit must be checked . test voltage on the board to confirm if any capacitor has gone weak. If there is no voltage shift then the display driver IC is faulty.

The unit will not boot-up. Static message on screen reads: ViaDJ Starting ... I suspect, based upon research that the hard drive has failed. I can hear the hard drive spinning, but nothing...


Ok, my Elan Via!dj unit was doing the exact same thing. This is how you fix it. Take an aluminum baseball bat and in an over-the-head, ax swinging, motion, strike the unit from the top 4 to 6 times. Dispose of unit in dumpster. Fixed. - John Wilcox of San Diego California

I can't eject a CD using the eject button. I've powered off the unit & restarted, with no luck.


Power off the unit. Under the right corner of the drive tray is a small hole (see pic). Find a paper clip that fits the hole. Straighten the paper clip and slowly push it in the hole. The drive tray gears will begin turning forcing the tray open. Gently pull tray all the way out. Power unit back up and see if it starts to respond again.

I don't know if it will completely fix the issue for sure but it is worth a try. I have had good results using this method if the drive is not truly broken.

RE: Elan Via-DJ power supply


Hello, If you look on the connector on the main board (not the power supply) it is indicated, it is quite small writing, you may need a magnifying glass.

Sounds like it may be the index in your Music Library. Try going into Recovery Mode; remove battery, hold power switch to ON, replace battery, release power switch when the Recovery Mode screen appears on the screen. Run Option 1 CleanUP, after it completes run Option 4 Restart. You will get a Rebuilding Library screen when it reboots, that's normal, then it should go back to your startup screen. Good luck and let us know what happened
