Re: CDJ bought from USA to use in the Uk

I understand you are only trying to fix only the converter. Is this for going from 220/50 to 120/60? If so there are a lot of non-servicable parts inside that converter. It'll be cheaper to replace it than repair it unless you have an electronics background and the test equipment. There is one other possibility. Check for fuses inside the converter. !. Unplug the unit let sit for a few minutes to let any possible electrical current drain off. (some have "storage capicators" that will knock you on your butt and I'm not sure about this one) 2. You may have to open the case and look for fuses inside. You have to take the fuses out of the holders to check unless you have an "ohm meter" and know how to use one. 3. If they are clear galss look for the filament inside to be intact. If ceramic (usually white color instead of glass) you need an "ohm meter". The fuses are replaceable if they are "not "soldered in". If they are soldered in you might not be able to buy the correct fuse and that means buy you need a new converter. Hope that solves your problem.

I've got an Audio Technica LP-1240 turntable with a Shure M97xE cartridge. I've had it for several days now, and it's been playing fine. I just got a record cleaning kit (Tonar cleaning brush with a bottle...

A damaged or worn stylus will effect all records not just one. I don't know what D4 fluid is, but if there was some still present on the record it could have got inside the cartridge and done some damage to it.

No power to my 1210 MK2s


Open the turntable. It sounds like the on/off switch is bad. Remove the platter and screws with a phillips screw driver and just make sure the connections are in place. make sure you disconnect the power first.

Power problem, CDJ wont turn on propperly as it is from the US and i live in Birmingham UK

The step down adapter should work fine as long it supplies the voltage and any other ratings shown on the turntable power supply indication pannel. However the problem might already have happened. If the fuses were before the power entered the mains transformer of the unit, then if they were set to blow above the USA voltage then things could be OK. However if the the fuses were in the secondary output from the transformer then the mains will have caused possible damage to the transformer. Maybe even elsewhere.

Hello i need some help,i have pioneer 800 mk2 cdj i buy from usa but im live in london so difirent pawer supply here i bought the converter but try connect and its not showing nothing maybe the problem...

You can have a fuse problem only in you plug it diectly to 240V, the UK voltage. Check that the converter is a step down transformer, 240 to 110 volts. The system should work with 110Volts. If everything is ok, then you blew the system´s powersupply with the 240Volts. that is difficult to solve.

u could have bloo the trancformer,but check the fuse inside the unit first, & the plug coz u never know unless u test it.
if it still doesnt work then the trancformers probobly gone.

EZ Audio Converter does not export files to iTunes

I've had exactly the same problem, and so far no resolution from Ion. A small bit of good news: the .wav files are on the hard drive, although without any track info. At least on Vista, they are in username/AppData/Local/Temp. The files are name Temp0, Temp1, Temp 2, ...

You can use iTunes to add these files (File/add file) and then convert them to .mp3s, or whatever format you prefer. Or you could convert them first using the tool of your choice, such as Audiograbber.

This is inconvenient, but a lot better than re-ripping the vinyl after EZVinyl hangs.
