Cdj-500ll cue button repair

I recently purchased 2 x cdj500 11 second hand on ebay 1 works perfectly the other doesnot. This is how they were sold and I got a good price.

I have cleanded the lazer lens and did at one point mange to get a track to play, but it started skipping and the CDJ would not play the entire cd.

upon further investigation I found that all the buttons on the player appeared to function, except the cue button and the cue mode button. however when comparing the cdj to the one that is working the cue mode button depresses and clicks in the same manner as the functional players button. But the cue button itself doesnote depress or click or move.

Does anyone know how to repair or replace this button and would this be the cause of the cd playing problems (which seems logocal to me).

The faulty button will not stop it from playing well... replacing them is not hard so long as you have some experience with a soldering iron.
Clean the laser lens with a cotton bud wet with windex... then use a dry one to be sure no residue is left. If it still mistracks... new optics required!. You willl need a pioneer service agent to do this for you. A little complex for the first timer :)

How much should I pay for a second hand 3230 Elna bought in 2012? It is in very good condition.

This really isn't an appraisal service. You can search online (eBay, Etsy, etc.) sites that have recently sold similar machines. Price also depends on its physical and working condition, the accessories that are included, where it is located, etc. In essence, an item's value is only worth what a seller is willing to pay.

Second hand movement stopped working

Morning Mike Harris,

Tired battery will do that.

Some watches will cause the second hand to jump a few seconds as the battery get low... I have seen that a few times... typically a NEW battery WILL restore full operation...

After experiencing the PROFESSIONALS... prices & careless handling I purchased a decent set of tools and have NEVER
regretted it.

I would like to purchase 2 puffalumps but dont know where to buy them.

I've found that with toys that aren't sold "on the shelf" any more that the best prices can be found on Ebay. A quick check for "puffalump" shows multiple options available on Ebay selling between $10 - $30 "buy it now", meaning you just purchase it and don't worry about the auction bidding side of Ebay.

Just recently, with no warning, 1/2 of my screen is 1/2 black and 1/2 wierd, colored digital lines. It's has been suggested by the repair people that HDTV's are not worth repairing and to just write this...

This is most likely a problem with your LCD Controller Circuit Board (or TCon Board for short).

It is a common failure point with LCD TV's. You can often get a second hand replacement part on ebay for less than $100 if you are handy with a screwdriver and want to replace it yourself. However those ebay parts don't come with much of a guarantee and you probably won't get much more life out it than you did the first one.

Good luck.

Need user manual and list of included parts for the Singer 7436

A phone call to a Singer dealer to say you are interested to know which accessories are included with this model will solve the second issue, as to the manual, is the time spent not having one plus the savings you made on original purchase really not worth $15 ?

Sew4Less, or SewUSA may have one, but they will charge....if it is a recent model, the chances of finding a second hand one are remote, and eBay will have machine with manual.

Try the place where you bought it to be certain they don't have the old one kicking around in a dusty corner, or would photocopy one for you ...........a new machine ought to be sold with a manual.
