Vestax cdx-05s The scratch function and the brake on one of my cdx-05s does not work when playing a cd but works when the cd is not playing

    Have the same problem for the scratching; haven't noticed a problem with brake though.

    It seems that the mechanism that detects pressure on the platter is not working anymore. It is probably a switch problem: either the switch is broken, or its solder broke on the board.

The problem is with the tiny grey switch that tells the CDX that the platter is engaged. Take the face of the unit off by unscrewing the screws of on the circumference of the bottom of the unit, then locate the copper T shaped piece touching the spindle of the platter. Unscrew the little circuit board (this houses the on/off soft switch for the scratch mechanism) covering the bottom of the T and the T itself. Try powering the unit up and play a CD with the scratch mode activated. Push the grey soft switch to see if the music stops and move the platter back in forth to see if it scratches. If so, all you have to do is bend the copper T trigger to a position where it hits the soft switch just right; off when you don't have the platter pushed down, and on when you do. If the scratching doesn't work when you push the grey switch down, you have a problem I don't know how to fix. Hope this helps!

One of the motor's on the unit might be bad. This is not an easy fix, and I would suggest taking it to a service center for diagnosis and repair.

My vestax turntable doesn't spinning


Well since i read it often and have such a table myself, it,probably like with technics turntables. A lack of maintenance and since you s ratch with it it , only never replacing the powersupply capacitors, which are really good , but it depends all on the pressure you use .
Open the unit , check the capacitors, which is 10sec work , offcourse check the fuses and thermistor , but do you see a light if you put it on and do you hear crackles when you spin the platter and have you ever ipend the motor and clean and lubricated the motor?
A lot of peoples with the 2000 blame the motor and transformer for the thing do stop, without never have opened the unit in 14 years. It's a perfect motor and powersupply, but first open the supereasy tt
checking the obvious things. But you have to agree, it's a nice scratch unit, als the 3000 mix, which has way better abs plastic and feet, scratches better then my mk-5. And replace the plastic in the feet for mettal. I see a lot of guys with broken feet and a whole deck with scratches, but though i agree that the height adjustment, piece of far to hard plastic toyshit, most peoples use the pitch far too high,
But in 14 years stuff breaks

Vestax Handy Trax Turntable skips toward the end of very LP played. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?


Generally caused by a worn stylus, or incorrect pressure. Increase the weight - pressure, by adjusting the weight on the end of the arm.

My CDX05 kept skipping last night, it happened on 7 different CDs. The CDX was tilted up though, would this cause the problem?


If it was kept in a dusty place yes!
I would thus try cleaning the lens with a good CD lens cleaner product, that should get rid of any dust problem.

Laser


The laser is probably dirty... Lasers last forever, or 100,000 hours of play, whichever comes first.

Use a CD laser Cleaner ... Radio Shack ($14)

It is a Audio CD with small imbedded brushes. No chemicals involved.
read the instructions carefully and turn on the volume when cleaning. The CD is an AUDIO CD and it will also give audio instructions.

Hope this helps! ... Don't take the unit apart...

Vestax PMC 05 PRO MIXER master output is not working


More than likely the output PCB might be faulty, or the signal amp might be damaged. In either case, not an easy fix. As for service in the UK, try HARD TO FIND RECORDS - they have a pretty good service dept.

Disc Jumping


I used to have the same problem: the rubber feet of the players are too stiff. It is indeed vibration that causes the problem. Btw: after a couple hours in a club, you are usually playing much louder than at home, with more low-end punch.

I haven't had a single problem AFTER systematically setting the players on foam. This is similar to the tennis balls trick for regular turntables, except that here you need something a softer suspension as the players are very light. Shipping foam is good; camping foam mattress works also.

Pitch control center moved


Hello, Mr. Dixon.
I had the same problem and i decided it whit this procedure:

1. Restoring Factory Default Settings



2. Set the PITCH Slider to the center ( 0 ) position.

3. With the CDX-05 in the start mode displaying “no Disk” hold down EJECT and TIME/ENTER and press FILTER. The TEMP display in the LCD reads 0.0 and the procedure is complete.

Good luck!
