Pitch/Tempo control/fader problem

I have 2 off CDJ-500ii decks and both are now starting to fluctuate on the pitch/tempo control/fader to degree of shifting +/- .2 without touching it. Can a repair be done? If so, at a shop or can i repair myself? Or , Do i need to replace? Can i get replacements as they are now discontinued models? etc etc etc. Thanks

You can buy a contact cleaner spray and spray inside the fader while moving the fader from -10 to +10. If the problem is dust or dirt this will fix it. If the problem presists, then go ahead and get a fader replacement.It's easy to replace ;-) Regards. DiMiS Greece.

My CDJ 1000 mk2 pitch control doesn't work and it doesn't regeister on the display, can you help??


The pitch faders do fail but usually they just become erratic rather than give up completely.
I think the most likley problem is a crack on the pitch circuit board or problems caused but liquid spilt into the pitch fader.

A drunk guy throwed a little bit of beer on the cdj (it was REALY just a little bit) and it's having many problems now: FIRST: i can't eject or insert any cd's. I think it is Error 9101. Not sure because I...


If this was brought to me for repair the first thing I would do is completly strip the player to clean out any beer residue. This would involve washing all the plastic parts (top chassis, knobs, jog wheel parts etc etc) in warm soapy water. Any residue on the circuit boards is best cleaned off with a toothbrush and an alcohol based spray / liquid such as Isopropyl alcohol (if nothing else available metholated spirit will do but it tends to leave a purple residue itself).
Some spare parts may well be needed if, for instance the beer has got into the tack switches or pitch fader etc.
Error 9101 is stated as :-
Mechanical time out - Abnormality of disc loading mechanism
so the beer may well have got in the deck aswell but it could also be the electronics are confused causing the deck to do stange things thus generating the fault code - hard to say for sure without having the player on the workbence.
I hope this information helps.

Good source of spare parts :-

Pioneer cdj pitch control


You have to properly calibrate your unit after any repairs. If you purchase the Service Manual for this unit, it will instruct you on how to accomplish this.

Technics 1210 Mk 2 Pitch Fade Problems


You have to understand any sort of calibration meter will only tell you if the pitch control is faulty - or excessively too fast/too slow. If your units are just 'off' then that is a matter of a simple calibration of your pitch controls back to original factory specs. Also, just so you know, the pitch controls on the 1200s are not really calibrated when they leave the factory. They are basically installed, set a default setting, then shipped off. So, you'll often times have 2 turntables with sequential serial numbers, but they are both off.

Here is a tutorial on calibrating your unit back to original factory settings: TECHNICS SL1200MK2 / SL1210MK2 TURNTABLE PITCH CALIBRATION

You can also print this out and give it to the technician who serviced your units. Also ask him what kind of calibration meter, or unit did he use to test? Just curios.
