Hi

The deck may have faulty speed control pots. pitch bend will blend one decks speed to the other. The distortion problems may relate to overdriving the rig. Always give yourself plenty of headroom. NO red level lights up.

    you could try and clean the fader for pitch control, use a good quality
    contact cleaner/lubricant spray, but the one that does not respond at
    all may need to be replaced.



    Cleaning the faders can make them stiff and hard to use. Replace is the
    go. It will probably need to be done from the inside, or at least the
    whole front panel removed. It would be a good idea to clean all the
    switches and buttons. A decent service is what is required.



    This is not unusual on DJ gear. it gets a hammering. :)

I think there may be some manufacturing fault ,or you need to adjust the device according to you.So better give for service in the service center nearby...

Well the cd speed problem is about the components been under alot of use, they get worse with time. I'm not sure I think you should be able to lock the speeds somehow.

  • Ekse Jul 07, 2008

    distortion can also be from alot of use you know, how old is the unit how much use has it had?

  • Ekse Jul 07, 2008

    Also check your cables they can cause distortion if loose or low quality.

I expected that the RCA leads from my turntable would just plug into the back of the RCD-W500C, but the manual indicates a somewhat complex cabling arrangement through the amplifier. I have not been able...


Your new cd player/recorder is a "component piece" as is your turntable,cassette player, reel to reel or CD player. Connect it as you would any other component piece of stereo equipment. Set up your recorder to "record" in real time(not high speed or synch record). Your tape recorder records anything that is playing through your reciever to your speakers. So, treat your "CD" recorder as you would a "CASSETTE TAPE" recorder. Play your vinyl record on your turntable and record to CD on your CD recorder ! Pay special attention to the dubbing speed, you will not use "synch or high speed !! Good Luck

Rcd159a boom box PLL digital radio- plays all the old mp3 cd's with a write speed 16x & under but any newly burnt one with the high speed disks fail


That's not unusual. Slower burning speed results in a deeper burn which is easier for some players to read. Unlike commercial discs which are highly reflective, burned CDs don't bounce as much light back to the laser in the pickup. Too fast a writing speed when burning can make some discs unreadable. This is why some older players can't read burned CDs at all; they were never sensitive enough to begin with. It's always a good idea to keep the write speed low (16x or so) when making CDs that will be played back in a regular CD player or boom box.

This problem is more likely to occur as the CD pickup ages and the laser weakens. If higher-speed burned discs used to play and now are having problems, it's probably time to replace the boombox (or the pickup assembly if you're ambitious). If the higher-speed discs never played, the player just can't deal with them and you'll need to keep the write speed down when burning CDs.

I have a stanton-vestax cd-11 dual cd player, and was wondering how to get a cd to play on it. I put one in, turned the player on, pushed all the buttons and nothing happened. how does it work?


I have had one of these for many years: Switch it on, you must make sure the two transit screws at the back of each deck are fully unscrewed and loose, let the machine displays settle down, then insert a CD, then press the 'reset' button. There is a built-in delay of about 11 seconds before the deck begins to read. After this the machine should then display the first track number, and pressing the big red button will start play.

Pressing the 'reset' button again stops playback and the CD spins down, but if you leave the CD in there it will eventually re-index and cue up again. This feature is to enable fast, one-button CD changing and it works very well in practice, as the 11 second delay is enough time to take one CD out and get another in there before it tries to read it again.

To stop playback just press the 'reset' button (this is the most used button!) and take out the CD. After the delay, the machine will try to read a CD as normal, but display 'no CD' on the display. There is no stop button, as this unit was designed for continuous use in a club or disco.

Hope this helps. :)

I have a Stanton T.80 and Vestax VMC-185XL mixer. I recently bought Rane Serato Scratch Live which requires the turntables to be grounded through the mixer...however, the turntable doesnt have a ground...


Hi gium

Sounds like we have reached that point where progressive crossover in technologies means that the usual cautions of earth continuity for the tone arm when using a phono preamp has gone the same way as phono preamps on home theatre.

Have you tried switching to the line level and set the mixer up for that level also. That may reduce any gain induced hum. However it sounds like an earth loop problem, where both decks will need to be earthed in the mixer. Check also that all the gear is running of the same power point. Different mains phases are sometimes available near each other, having any gear (power amps also) on a different phase will cause an earth loop problem.

Is the hum all the time independent of the volume levels, or change with levels adjustments and not at all when turned right down. Let me if changing to line levels helps. We can try some more things, like connecting a temp hookup wire earth to the RCA earth to mixer chassis. Cheers

I have a SA-203 receiver. I am trying to hook it up to my computer to record my LPs. I have run a stereo cord from the headphone jack to my "line in" on the PC. When I play anything (stereo,...


I did hook up my PC to my SA-203 successfully. I noticed the amplification was weakest when I hooked up through the "phono" connection but in all cases both speakers worked. Be certain you have plugged in the cables completely and the contact points are clean. If you open your Technics SA-203 you will see it is apparently not very complicated so if the connections are the problem you can probably even fix it yourself. Go to Radio Shack online as it is unlikely the sales help knows s**t about there electronics part bins and probably neither will the manager. But once again, I really believe you just need to fiddle with the plug at the "phones" connection on your receiver. Good Luck and sorry I took so long.
