Question about Stanton C501 Dual DJ MP3 CD Player
Use at home no problem, test prior gig, no problem, moment start using it "live" hops, skips and jumps on channel 2 only all formats not just MP3. Using various CD's so not the cd, various cd's play ok in other devices so not cd's.
It's as though there is a ghost in the place!
Try CLEANING THE LASER FOCAL LENS with a cotton bus and windex. use a dry fresh one to remove any film after cleaning. IF problem persists, run machine on its end when mistracking occurs(may be hard if yo doing a gig). If the mistracking stops(because the top bearing in the motor is worn) then it may require a new spindle motor. A double check for worn bearings is a drop of 3 in 1 oil to the top bearing of the motor. If the mistracking stops, REPLACE MOTOR. Oiling it is just a short term solution and it will fail again.
If its not the spindle motor, you may need to REPLACE LASER ASSEMBLY I would do both for a commercial unit that does gigs. Where possible i also check the price of a COMPLETE NEW TRANSPORT. This way you get fresh load belts and tracking drive assly too. At any time replacing the laser, remember to check for(and remove) a solder short circuit across the laser diode to protect it from damage by electrostatic discharge. Do this after you have installed the loom if possible. And of course work electrostatic safe, at least GET A WRIST BAND while you are getting the spares.
