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

Re: Pitch/Tempo control/fader problem

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.

CDJ 1000MK2. CDJ pitch control is out of calibration. The pitch plays at zero when the slider is at what should be the slowest setting. How do i reset zero to the middle of the slider.

There is a fine adjust on the pitch control circuit board, however if it is staying at Zero at the extremes then it's time for a new pitch control :(

My pitch always fluctuating

Try putting a little CRC226 in the pitch control. You can get it at HomeDepot in the electrical dept. Make sure to use ONLY that product as there are other CRC products there as well. The pitch variation may be due to a worn or noisy pitch control... this may fix it by using the spout and putting a little into the slot of the control. Other than that, the unit will need servicing.

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.

Your pitch control is faulty or dry. Try spraying wd 40 into the pitch sliding hole form top to bottom. Dont over spray it. Just a bit from top to bottom will do. If issue still persists, then there's some capacitors are weak which controls this pitch.

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.
