Pitch control center now 3.2% off center

I have 2 Vestax CDX-05 's CD Turntables - During a DJing session one unit during play decided that the center (normally 0 % pitch) would now be -3.2% (in the 10% pitch range setting) This seems to have been acheived with some combination of the jog wheel & +/- Pitch buttons but we've had no luck repeating this to even make the off center worse or better. Vestax seem difficult to contact and there support forum offers no solutions. I found one other poor user describing a similar problem.

In short any suggestions are welcome

Many Thanks

John Dixon,

Turn on CDX, hold down Time/Enter and Spin the jog wheel at the same time. This will bring up a selection. Select Clear All then Enter when it says Sure! This resets all programmable settings back to factory default.

Power failed in middle of a recording session when the machine was in Pause mode. How can I recover the recorded file?

You can try computer software like Nero or Roxio and finalize the disc as it is. This is exactly why I had advised Churches that went from reliable cassette tapes to CDR to put UPS units on the CD recorders as they do not react too well to power outages. If you were using an Open Reel there would be very little loss of the recorded signal.

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 :(

Vestax cdx-12 , left hand cddrive doesn't recognise discs imediately , sonetime not at all

In that case, the lens is weak. You need to change the lens entirely.

I wish you the best of luck.
