$150? I'm very surprised to hear that...especially when it's not the actual switches that are the problem.

My DAC 3 buttons were becoming sticky and non responsive so i bought a can of electrical contact cleaner, took the unit apart and sprayed all the buttons on the main boards with it. After putting everything back together, it's working perfectly again.

The cleaner cost me about £4 gbp and time to dismantle, clean and reassemble was about an hour all in.

Certainly alot cheaper than $150!!!

Did you ever figure this out? My Cue/Play buttons have gotten to where they don't react half the time, which is very annoying. I took the screws out of the top plate, hoping it would just come off and then I could clean under the soft-touch buttons, but it didn't. I took the screws out of the side and was able to remove the enclosure, but didn't see an easy way to get to the buttons. (It looks like you have to remove the little "C" clips from the end of the axle which the jog wheels attach to in order to remove them). I just put it back together until I can find more instruction.

    I ended up taking it to a repair shop here in Dallas. It cost about $150 for them to replace the two PLAY switches.

Laser probably needs to be cleaned. If you can get to the laser eye, check for scratches. With a foam cue tip or lint free cloth, not a cotton swab, with very very light denatured alcohol wipe the eye clean of debris. Clean eye once again with a dry lint free cloth. Check again for scratches, if no scratches the eye should be clean. If this doesn't work, try flipping the player upside down and secure where player is steady. Push the play button and see if it will play. If the player works in this position, that means the mechanics that move the eye up and down are weak. The entire eye assembly needs replacing.

What is the cue/f play/erase button on the top


When in RECORD, pressing the 'Cue' button will put a tone on the tape. This is used on the transcriber's machine to identify different jobs and such.

When in PLAY, pressing the 'F Play' button will change the playback speed to 1.5.

If you hold the 'ERASE' button and hold the portable in REWIND, it'll erase the tape while it's rewinding.

Hope this helps...

Cdj-500ll cue button repair


the faulty button will not stop it from playing well... replacing them is not hard so long as you have some experience with a soldering iron.
Clean the laser lens with a cotton bud wet with windex... then use a dry one to be sure no residue is left. If it still mistracks... new optics required!. You willl need a pioneer service agent to do this for you. A little complex for the first timer :)

Never a good idea to clean with any spray cleaner. The cleaner does get down in the button bar and cause corrosion and shorting along ribbon cable. Use screen wipes for computer monitors only on TV's and any type of monitors. You can remove the back of the case. And remove the button board and clean with a cue tip and alcohol along ribbon cable.
