I'm having the same problem. This is my second MPC 1000 and my first one didn't have this problem. I bought one of the first one-thousand MPC 1000's sold in the US. I loved it. I sold it for rent, boo hoo. I'm glad to have another one back in my life. But sad to see it having issues already. I've only had it for a week. I have emailed Akai regarding this issue. I'll post pack here if they give me a good fix.

If your turntables use ceramic cartridges, you'll need to use a passive interface box that converts the unbalanced ( RCA ) plugs from the turntable to balanced ( 1/4" T-R-S ) plugs to connect to your MPC1000's stereo line inputs. If your turntables have magnetic cartridges, you will need an active phone preamp, check the music retailers catalogs or on-line there are many makes and models.
If you want to mix the two turntables ( sequeing from one to the other and back continuously as in a DJ setup ), you'll need a small DJ mixer.
Hope this helps.

The power switch will need to be replaced. This will need to be done by a tech rather than the end user unless you are experienced in electronic repair. Take it to the shop.

You would come out of the S1100 l/r output jacks into your mixer line input jacks on 2 channels, one panned left, one panned right. Be sure to adjust the input pad on each channel to where you're getting a hot enough signal and that the channels you're inputing to are routed to the mixer's main outputs.

That's probably the drive belt inside the player, hope this helps.

If it's on ONE particular record, it may have a deep groove that the needle cannot move past. It could also be that you don't have enough pressure on the needle which you can adjust on the arm with a turn of the counter-weight (should be a knob on the other end from the needle)

normally a buzzing sound means a grounding problem, or a component has failed, unless you have the proper equipment to check these items,, your going to have to take it to a shop that does, sorry I know thats not what you wanted to hear,, but heres a hint, Ive found that a shop that deals in instruments and sound devices charges a lot, I have found a TV repair shop in my town, that can check my band equipment,, and its much cheaper, and I usually get the stuff back much quicker too

Grab the tape out leads or other mains jacks using TRS cables (balanced).

Here is a diagram of how the equipment should be connected:

The mixer is the device that interconnects your keyboard and drum machine. The receiver is just your sound output, and doesn't combine inputs, e.x. drum machine, keyboard, mic, etc.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

Try downloading the manual for the 2KXL. It should have instructions. Here's the link to download:

You'll have to scroll down the page to find your manual, but it might help.
