Put the pitch slider to +6 and adjust the internal preset until the top set of dots on the platter are stationary.
Check again with the pitch at +3.3 if the dots are stationary then job done!, if not then the pitch slider is worn and perfect calibration won't be possible until the pitch slider is replaced.

1, The regulator circuit has failed, usually transistors Q2, Q3 and zener diode D3.


2, The drive I.C (I.C101 / AN6675) has failed, this can be natural failure but also can happen if the deck is turned on and started with the platter removed.

Is the ground wire from the deck connected to the mixer?.

If everything is connected ok then the ground wire or phono cord could be faulty - look here for replacements :-

Could also be a "ground loop" - try a ground loop isolator.

sounds like the pitch needs replacing or tighting. Get them serviced. Ask your equipment supplier shop. Good way to check the decks are in sync is to place the pitch on each marked seting ie 0 / 2/ 4/etc making sure both decks are set to the same pitch adjustment speed. Look at the light from the on/off switch and check the 4x circles on the deck platter and make sure they are the same as each other. If you never used this before. set your eyes and pay attention, you will notice the pattern. I mix this way to get tunes roughly in time without listerning to the track - DJ EZ helped me with this years ago. peace DJ Nyce

You could be getting acoustic feedback from the speakers to the TT's. Lower the volume or somehow isolate them from room sounds and vibrations.

Have the buttons been swapped around?. 33 should be on the left.

The anti skate adjustment. And if you scratch @ all....move the weight all the way in and take off the little extra one that screws in on the back. Also a great tracking needle is a M44G.

Hi, please don't tamper with it so as to not loss your warranty on the product. I sounds to me as a factory fault problem. My advice to you is to take it back to the store you got it from and request for another one but make sure you test it in the store before you take it home and if you are not satisfied, you request back for your money..

Take care
