DJM 400 Keep going into over on the channel and the master volume

I tried everything to keep my levels from going over but it stays red even when its not turned up loud. Im using Serato with the 2 CDJ 400s and DJM 400 with a MACBOOK . Is it neccessary to use the control wires that connects the CDJ's to the mixer?

To keep your levels down keep the TRIM don which is the gray knob. Also keep the hi, mid, and low knobs at the medium level. The control cables are for using the fader start function.

I have a Fender 2x12 Hot Rod Deville. The clean channel seems to be working fine but the overdrive channel is not. I have to turn it up all the way in oder to get just a little bit of sound. So that...


For the Drive channel you need to use the Drive control AND the MASTER volume control. When the Drive channel is active, the Channel Indicator lamp should be RED indicating the Drive Channel is active. The Drive control knob is used to adjust the preamp volume and distortion level of the Drive Channel. This gives you a clue as to what to check if adjusting the controls doesn't work -- the preamp tubes. Having said that, ONLY try to check these tubes with the amp OFF! Never stick your hand up into the chassis of a live amp. It could be lethal. Your preamp tubes are the ones farthest from where the power cord enters the chassis. They have a rubber like stabilizer on them. They have a tendency to wiggle loose, which is part of the reason for the stabilizer. Again, if you're not familiar with the insides...stay out and get an amp tech to help you.

The Normal Channel only uses the Volume Control to adjust volume.

I have a djm 400 and it has started producing a buzzing sound through the speakers. I can take the same speaker cables from the djm 400 and hook them up to my backup mixer and the buzzing goes away. What...


Does it buzz through cans? (headphones). Try listening on headphones (turn off any amps and speakers) on cue to each channel you use and to the master output. is it stil there? if so it's an all round earthing fault. If it's all good through the cans (sorry...I mean headphones), try it with the amp/s on again. If the buzz is back it souds like the screen on the main audio output connecters has come off inside.
It's a quick fix, but if you have never used a solder iron, take to someone who has.

Hi, I have a DJM 400 Pioneer mixer, I'm having trouble with the output levels. It seems the left output is only putting out about half the sound of the right output.I have used different RCA cables,...


Please try a set of headphones. If it is balanced in the phones, then I suspect trouble might be in the muting circuits of the main output.

Next test is to verify the outputs using direct inputs to the CD input...

My DJM 400 power button does not stay on, when I hold in the power button it does have power, but does not switch to stay on. Any quick fixes for this? Thank you.


The only "fix" for this is to replace the power switch. The internal latch has broken. I have seen this a few times. You can get the part from Pioneer directly. Contact them and request the power switch for your specific model. They may also request the serial number as there were a few variants of this model.

High pitched squeal when the input jack is used.


Sounds like your master volume is turned up too much. The channel volume will make the squealing go away(caused by high gain and humbuckers). The best thing to do is dial in your favorite presets and change the channel volume to the correct level with the master volume where you usually keep it. I use my Spider Valve at master volume at about noon and the channel volume between nine o'clock and noon. Let me know if this does not solve the problem......

How to connect my qqualizer to my djm pioneer 400 mixer


Use the stereo master outs from the DJM into the A and B Inputs of the EQ (you'll need 2 phono to Jack or 2 phono to XLR cables) then from the A and B Outputs of the EQ to the power amp/ speakers, etc (you'll need jack or XLR cables depending on what is powereing your speakers)

One Output low on DJM 400


This may not be the correct solution, but have you checked the switches on the back of the DJM-400 to see if one output is set to "PHONO" mode?

Pioneer DJM-400 mixer turns on, but channels aren't working


could be a few things , what have you tried to trouble shoot the problem ?
My steps would be ;
check all leads (even if you KNOW u pluged them in)
check the gain is set corectly .
check the line phono slectors are set to what ever you have you leads pluged into on the back of the mixer ( there is 4 red and white RCA plugs , 2 for phono,2 for line CDJs shold be using line )
if you are using digital cables to conect your CDJs , on the back on the mixer there is a small switch marked "CD or digital" make sure that is sleceted "digital " . if ur not using digital cables make sure it is on "CD" .
the info iv put here is based on the DJM-800 so your mixer my not have some of these featers as iv never used a 400 . hope this helps dued . check out www.djtutor.com for more tricks and tips . Pratices'N'enjoy !
