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.

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...

Scratch works only on pause


The problem is with the tiny button 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.

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!
