Question about Pioneer DJM-500 Pro DJ Mixer - B-Stock

1 Answer

No sound on DJM500

Recently was working on my djm500 since there was serious static on one of my channels while checking to see if the static was still present my screwdriver slipped and tapped one of the PCB's and all the meter lights illuminated and went out. I turned of the mixer and then back on, all the lights were off with the exception of the first led on each meter, not only that but there is no audio detectable on any channel and no audio coming out of the mixer.

So what were you doing in there ???
Probably blew the internal Power Supply or the regulators.
Usually you have three, +15, -15, and +5.
I bet you blew one of the 15s.
The +5 lights up the lights.....
Now you need some savvy and a Multimeter to see if your +/- 15 rails are ok and if not, change the regulators. They should be screwed onto a heat sink.
Good luck !!! Preferably take it to a Tech....

Hi guys, I have a DJM500 mixer which has been a trusted friend over the years but unfortunately channel1 ( CDline/ line) only produces a level on one side only, the other is totally dead. Would appreciate...

It sounds like you have a broken slide switch, the switch that changes the signal between CDline/line. Is is quite a common failure for these Pioneer mixers after a few years of use.

The spare part is this:
If you decide to fix it yourself, be advised that it requires a fair amount of disassembly work and some desoldering/soldering skills.

Good luck!

I replaced the fader in my DJM500 twice. It corrected the problem for a little while and then It start cutiing in and out again. Sometimes if i discount it and reconnect it the problem is fixed for a while...

Look for a cracked trace on the pc board close to the connection points of the fader. It is possible that the fader itself is fine. The easiest way to spot these is to remove the fader and measuer for continuity from the pad to another connection further away while trying to flex the board a bit.

Pioneer DJM500 Mixer - Bass EQ Control on Channel 2

You might want to clean the exisiting potentiometer with dielectric solvent. This might work without having to replace the Pot. But if you have to replace it, make sure you have the correct tools. This is a fine soldering job, but it appears you have the correct part.

take your headphone jack converters and use large converter and plug into the channel 4 submic. take cord off of basic technic stereo dh1200. detach cord and plug into ipod, then into converter and push PLAY wohooo. Music will come out of whichever assign A or assign B knob channel you set it too. If you don't know where that is. It is close to the crossfaider.This is for a DJM-500.

Bravo to ZOE,

I always use either one of the Master Output's (you have two, ones a jack the other a phono so use the one you've not got pklugged into your amp), or the monitor output...assuming you're not already using these for instance in a club environment.

Personally I've been using a phono to headphones jack cable from the monitor putput into my laptop (using Soundforge to record), the advantage being you can change the level of the recording volume using the monitor vol, without affecting your Master Volume whilst you're having a mix!

Hope that helps...
