Numark CD MIX2 right deck skipping, sounding scratchy
Just purchased a brand new Numark CD MIX2 to replace my larger, bulkier set-up. I was really looking forward to the lighter rack. Unfortunately, the right deck continuously skips, gets stuck, or sounds scratchy when I play certain burned CD's. Those same CD's sound fine in the left deck. They also play fine on my home CD player. I've read this is a common problem with this particular model (a little too late, however). Any clues how I can get around this wothout having to pack it up and ship it back?

Hallo! This is caused by the laser fault. First unplug the cord, high voltage!!! Disassemble the device, look under the cd place you will see a little lense. Clean it VERY DELICATE with a piece of cottonwool with alcohol, can clean it twice with alcohol and then with a dry one. If doesn't help, then need to replace the laser reader system with a new one, it's that where the lense is placed, it must have on it an badge with the serial number, you can search it by that number/code.
you should be fine, you can get splitters, little adapters to split the input cables into 2, so that you can use one ouytput to run 2 channels. just hook up the output cables to the output on the numark, and use the splitter adapter to split the sound between the 2 amps.
Just wanted to tell you i have the same problem with my right deck! after about 2-3 hours of usage the right deck will start to skip while playing a cd...almost sounds like im fast forwarding then itll just stop playing, but only on the right deck! Ive noticed that it happens when the unit gets hot whether by usage or sunlight. Now as for youre issue about the crackling, i have two staements one is the cd youre playing scratched? ive had cds that have had minor path scratches that follow around the cd not straight across scratches..while playing this sounds like static or crackle then fades away! I would recommend playing the cd in a entirely different unit to see if this is the prob...if you know this is not the issue i would say that its a loose connection to a capicator or that a capacitor is on the way out...this happens when the capacitor is cold and doesnt let proper flow to go thru but as the capacitor heats up it it may heat the connection making a better contact.....just out of curiousity do you have the right rated fuse in the holder.. sometimes just having a fuse off by a couple of volts or milliamps can cause the same effect
