Question about Vestax Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Static sound Hi, I own a Vestax PCV-180 mixer, and some of the pots are starting to develop a "crackle" when I rotate them. This occurs primarily with the EQ knobs (mostly the bass). Is there any way I can clean / replace the pots? I have looked in my owners manual, but can not find any service info for this (only cross fader replacement). Any help would be grand Ta, Matt

Please bring an lubricant contact cleaner from radio shack near you and apply it in pots while you are moving it forward and back.

I had major static sounds from my yamaha stagepas 500. I plugged in an acoustic guitar into the mixer while running a keyboard and 2 vocal mics. I started getting crackling sounds. I changed the patch...


Chances are there is nothing wrong with the mixer. IF you accidentally turned on Phantom power, that would cause the problem. Phantom is ONLY used with condenser mics and a few DI boxes. Turning it on can create noise unless balanced lines are used everywhere.

White noise in left channel on my Vestax PMC 06 pro-a DJ mixer


try it with nothing plugged in to the inputs, if there is no noise. most likely its the turntable, cd player, or whatever the input is is the problem. or try plugging the mixer into a different area of the house/room. its like if you were to put your cell phone by a mixer, or speakers.

Turntable Crackling


sounds to me like your fader has popped! lube contact spray will not solve the problem, it will only clear it up for a few passes if any! PCV faders have covers inside which stop any lube getting right on the contacts! but in my experience as a scratch dj for 11 years is that contact spray only make the problem worse over time! best shot from here is to replace the fader, or get a mixer with optical/contactless fader i suggest a mixer with the 'eternal' fader i.e. ecler 360/80hak. hope this helps

My Stereo integrated hi fi amp is giving a crackle when output from certain devices - like a build up of static at intervals. It is quite old NAD amp - is this a sign of transistor failure, is it worth...


This sounds like you may have a lot of solder connections on the amp board and the power supply board to be resoldered. After a few years of using the unit they can get heat stressed and develop cracks in them. The sooner you get this fixed the better. NAD is a very good brand of stereo and in most cases they are well worth getting fixed. If the stereo is used for too long it can develope some component break downs that would cost much more money to repair.

Sometimes the static or crackle sound is just the volume control or other controls like the balance or teble or bass controls that just need to be cleaned with the proper type of electronic contact cleaner.

I hope this helps, have a nice holiday season,

Dave

Vestax CDX12, skipping


I have one, I bought as a open-box item. Once I suddenly noticed the entire conducting surface for a CD output was missing. I never repaired it but perhaps the solder is weak on these. They are also exposed to rough handling often. When you solder go light if you aren't experienced
