Customer Question

Hello, I use a Numark CD Mix 2 twin cassette deck player at the club to play music for our weekly dance. There is an annoying problem. Wondered if you could help? I never have a problem with deck B. But sometimes when deck A is playing, sound output is lost. The problem can be solved by fiddling with the speaker output leads. But by then the mood has passed!

Hello my name is***** do not rate until we are finished. I look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem. I want to warn you that it is possible you will need to replace a part in order to fix this. If you need a part you are still required to pay. There are a few different things that can cause this and a couple different parts so we would need to troubleshoot to find out for sure. Have you tried cleaning the ends of the leads as well as the connection? Any type of corrosion can cause issues like this.

Thanks for reply Freddy I don't have access to this equipment

until later in the week I have not tried cleaning what should I use to clean them

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.
A cotton swab and isopropyl alcohol should work.

Both decks should be the same. I apologize but I need to opt out and open this to all experts. If this does not work please let the next person know what happened when you tried it.
