Numark CDX Search (for fast forward and rewind) not working.
One of my CDX turntables will not search properly. All other functions of the wheel are fine, but when I activate the search function and rotate the wheel to fast forward or rewind, nothing happens and the song continues to play at the same rate instead of fast forwarding or rewinding (searching) properly. If anyone can shed light on this occurrence, it will be of great help. Thanks in advance.

I don't have a technical manual for this unit, but I have worked on these before. They are fairly easy to dismantle, take care to apply even pressure when removing the jog wheel, use something like a butter knife (2 off) to slide under opposing sides of the wheel and gently prise up. Spare parts for this unit are available directly from Numark, however you can source them from elsewhere. you'll probably need to replace the transducer.
Have you tried downloading the most recent rom update for the CDN-90?
All you need to do is download it from here http://www.numark.com/contentmgr/showdetails.php/id/1493/tt/5 , then burn the download to disc. Once that's done, put the disc into the player, switch the player off and wait 10 seconds, then switch it back on again. the player will read the disc and flash the ROM. this should reset the player for you. Before you ask, you can out the disc into either side of the player. Full instructions are given with the download.
HERE YA GO!! GOOD OLD FASHIONED BEATING FIXED MINE... I PROMISE THIS. When you turn on your CDX... HIT THE SQUARE AREA where the play button and the cue buttons are located. It will jump to CDX on the screen and work fine. Mine did this and i messed around with bumping it and stuff and figured this out
hello, there should 4 little black screws on the top of the cd tray when it is removed from the deck. two of them are on the rear top in black plastic. the other two are holding the silver plate down as well. remove those four screws. the top should slide off. after that is off, you should be able to see how the disc is being secured. careful not to pry any thing it should all come apart. good luck.
There are many users with the same problem.
I have it also with one of my cdx.
Dr see d'EX at youtube; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnAGKnzQaJs
shows a modification to solve this problem.
He makes a kind of cushion with a ducktape and
tries to fix a cable at the back of the player.
Anyway, i've tried it and it worked ... for a while.
Know the problem consists, and I will take my
Unit to a service point.
It is a shame that there is no sufficient information on the net
regarding this problem. Many cdx owners have this problem.
Numark says the lens needs to be replaced.
