Question about Gemini Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Gemini BPM250 3 channel mixer that I am havin problems with the cue/pgm slide, basically when I've only got one cued I still hear both decks unless I press down real ******* the slider. I guess it's a loose connection, as the rest of the mixer is sound can I just replace this part?

I would take the front panel off and repair the bad connection.

Issue is either your tonearm or your RCA cables. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to determine which is the problem. I would suggest replacing the RCA cables first, as it is the least expensive. If it does not solve your problem, then the issue is with the tonearm.

You can also do this for now:
Remove your headshell/cartridge from the tonearm. Look inside the tonearm tube, you'll see 4 gold prongs. Make sure all 4 prongs are protruding, and are 'shiny'. If they are not, then the issue is with your tonearm. If they look good, then more than likely, the issue is with your RCA cables. Taking it to a qualified repair center will help in determining what is the issue, but they will need to open your unit to test, so be prepared to pay for the estimate right off the bat.

If your in the NY Metro area, look us up. We also offer nationwide service, if you cannot find anyone local:

Could be one of 3 issues:

1) Tonearm
2) RCA Cables
3) Cartridge/Styli

I generally tell people to try different cartridges first. If that doesn't work, then you know it's either your tonearm or your RCA cables. 80% of the time, it's the RCA cables. It's very hard to determine which one it is at this point without opening her up and putting on some new RCA cables to test. If it works, then your good. If not, then you know it's your tonearm, and will need to be replaced.

Well, number #1 - it's a Gemini. So, you can rest assured that the craftsmanship is not the greatest. It's hit or miss with this company.

#2, if the issue you are having is a ground issue, then perhaps the internal ground wire might have come loose, or there is some sort of interference somewhere. Do you have your turntables next to anything that draws alot of power? Such as air conditioner, or a microwave, fridge, etc? Also, connecting to the same power outlet with something that draws alot of electricity might have the same effect. Try a different power outlet. One that is not being used if possible. If you use a power strip or extension cord, try a new one.

There could be many issues which cause feedback.. the main thing is to determine what is NOT causing the problem. So, you know it's NOT your mixer. Great. Now, move on to the next step. Check your cartridges also. Try swapping them out, see if the problem follows. Many times the tonearms aren't grounded properly. There are 5 wires coming out from the tonearm - L+, L-, R+, R- and GROUND. If the ground came off during transport, or movement, this might be your problem.

Good luck!

SOURCE: error on the vinyl mode will let me cue but not play

More than likely you have a bad switch, although this is not something that you could service yourself. I would suggest taking it to a service center in your area. Make sure they are Pioneer authorized, and know what a CDJ800 unit is!

SOURCE: 1 X 1200Mk2deck higher volume / causing spkr not to work..

Problem If you swapped the two TT's would the problem stay with the connection on your mixer? At least then you/we would know wherein lies the problem. I'm betting thge low volume is because you have the phono jacked into a line level input like AUX instead of PHONO.

Typically, what you're describing is a phone source plugged into a NON-phono connection. (Tinny, low volume - classic lack of a phono preamplifier with RIAA equaliztion). A standard old-school tuntable requires a phono preamp that is labeled "PHONO". Nothing else will give it the boost and freq response correction LP's and phono cartridges produce.

Your problem #2 alludes to a channel problem with a turntable running through your mixer. This isn't rocket science. Swapping the two turntable channels around would probably change the apparent failing channel, right? Yes - Problem out at the turntable. No - problem in the mixer. You've already hinted at the source by monkeying with the tonearm wiring. You're on the right track. The tiny multi-colored wires in the cartridge shell are very thin and delicate. Their brass fittings sometimes oxidize and reseating them as you have done usually gives some relief. Kinks in the wires could cause your intermittent symptom. At the RCA end of the tonearm cables, make sure they're seated on with a twist to wipe off oxide.

Problem #3. Is it just bothering you or is there a functional problem, too?

You need to take it to the shop and get the switch replaced. It shouldn't cost more than an hour's labor/bench charge and the cost of the switch. Depending on your market probably $75-100.

typically (unless your useing other gear besides mixer and amp) you'd come out of the L/R outs. ( Main outs ) to the Main inputs of the power amp then out to your speakers (outs of power amp). Now the amp could be in bridge mono or other factors but typically, like i said, just
Mixer Out- Amp In- Amp Out- Speakers.

If you have fader capabilities...and there is still signal "leaking" through...you may try reducing your input gain on each channel of your mixer...as well as make sure you have a good ground connection between your components.

Get yourself a manual. It will help you. You can DOWNLOAD A FREE COPY of the PIONEER DJM600 INSTRUCTION MANUAL from HERE.

Now, you have to use the CUE button function on each channel to select what you want to hear when you cue things in the headphones. Last, you control the volume of the master cue in the headphones using the CUE volume of the headphone CUE section.

What do you mean you put the master to cue to hear something from the master? You should be ableto hear the master at all times then choose wha channel you are cuing up. Sounds like a pot. problem on the switch or board.
