You have to replace the slide pot.they are made to be replaced.remove the pitch cover,unplug the cable with white wires and blue connector (it just slides in,or out),remove the ground wire (the single wire with white connector (it just slides off too).now unscrew the blue metal houseing form the pitch fader.now you have a fader+motherboard soldered together.you will have to desolder the posts.once this is done discard the old slide pot.test fit the new slide pot gently into the motherboard.if fits correctly,and posts are lined up,solder into place.clean debris if necessary.let cool,reconnect,test pitch.good luck! i had to replace mine,and it was a bad slidepot.take my advice,order 2 slidepots,just in case the other goes out,because they are hard to get your hands on!

Even after callibrating my right deck, the pitch speed keeps jumping up and down... Any ideas how to fix this?


Hi,
you have to replace the Pitch fader, which is causing this .It requires taking apart the IDJ2 and desoldering it from its board. You have to be exprienced with a soldering iron. The spare part is not too pricy itself, so maybe swapping out 2 of these faders at a time and also replacing worn out switches as a maintenance step.

Pitch control


No. You have pitch control on this model, but only by altering playback speed by plus or minus 12.5%.

My stanton t50 turntable plays too fast even when the pitch fader is at the slowest speed


You need to calibrate your pitch control. This requires a small precision screwdriver (similar to something you would repair eye glasses with). If you look under the turntable where the pitch control is you will find 2 small holes, 1 marked 33 and 1 marked 45. Turn the turntable on and set the pitch control lever to zero pitch. While the turntable is spinning insert the screw driver into the pitch calibration hole under the turntable and twist the potentiometer back and forth until the turntable pitch is zero (I believe clockwise is faster, counterclockwise is slower as you look up from the bottom of the turntable). This is a fine tune adjustment and will not require much turning to adjust the speed (1 or 2 mm's) either way should start to bring you into zero pitch. The platter speed can be verified by the little dots on the rim of the platter. They should appear stationary in strobe light on the power switch when you are at zero pitch. When you are adjusting the speed you will observe the dots on the platter rim spinning clockwise and then counterclockwise as you adjust the fine tuning. Fine tune the speed until the dots appear stationary and you will be back to zero pitch. You have to adjust the turntable at both speeds 33 and 45 using the correct fine tuning hole under the turntable. My personal experience is it is easiest to do this with 2 people. 1 person to hold the turntable level and running, while the other adjusts the fine tuning. Hope this helps.

Sounds like it has a vibrato micro seiki dd 25


Hi, first thing you need to do is check your strobe lights , if you look near your power on/off you should notice a little guide with +6 0 -3.33 etc, set your pitch to 0 for instanceand watch the platter by the light on the on off switch, the big dots on the plater should stay stationary whilst the smaller dots above it and below it move around it, if the big dots don't stay still it may well be a problem with your pitch control,, these arent too hard to replace and arent that expensive

Is difficult for me to say without looking at them
But if it seems like your decks are holding pitch then it might be somthing more complicated and you might need to take it to your local technics repair centre, you can find this by typing in the name of your town / city and technics service/repair
Bare in mind that you can get a kind of warble when you leave the pitch fader really close to zero but not quite on zero and it wil flicker between 0 and +1
A useful resource is http://www.turntabletech.com/ have done a few services myself of info off this site
last thing dont get ripped off by the service centre, i.e paying £300 to repair a technics probs aint worth it when you could buy a refurb one for less.
Good luck

I've got to be honest...(in response to your question)


The need to be cleaned as much as you play them. If you play them on a daily basis, I would suggest cleaning the pitch faders at least once a month. Also, the studio environment is also a factor. Is it a dusty place, or relatively clean?

You can clean the faders out with an air can, and some Deoxit or other contact cleaner. DO NOT USE RUBBING ALCOHOL.

There are 2 was to clean, blow the air can inside the fader, removing any debris, then spraying your contact cleaner, then spray air again.

Or, you can take the turntable apart, take the pitch control apart, and clean the contact fader inside. Desoldering is required for this. But it's a more thorough cleaning.

Helpful tips can be found here: www.djproaudio.com/Help

Or, you can just buy a new fader, and install <-- easiest method!

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.
