Numark iCDMIX2 repair

Lee put out an SOS on Facebook. The CD player he uses to teach disadvantaged individuals to DJ on had packed up. It just so happened I had a spare in the loft he could have ...

When he came to collect it, he dropped the broken one off...

"Care to have a look?"

Yeah, why not....


It's a Numark iCDMIX2 , and the left hand CD isn't reading discs... 

On testing it, I noticed the left CD wasn't engaging the disc, and you can hear the tray belt slipping. Lee seemed to think someone had been a bit heavy handed with it, and it's mis-aligned. I recon it's the tray belt slipping....

Three screws at the top of the front panel, two on the left, two on the right, and four countersunk ones underneath are removed to gain access to the CD transports...









and I can't *quite* get enough access.... off with the top.... four screws each side, and four across the back...












Gently lift the lid, careful not to unplug anything... and prop it up with a screwdriver!













With the tray in the eject position, pull the small lever to the left of the tray outwards, this will free up this side of the tray.... There's a similar lever on the other side, and you will now be able to extract the tray, to gain access to the belt. Lee was right, the belt was blameless in this case, and the unit just needed re-aligning. The large cam which engages the tray is moved round by hand unit the "gap" in the teeth is to the right hand side of the mechanism. Now the tray is inserted, and the unit tested...


Bingo. Another saved from landfill....
