Flaky play/pause or cue buttons on a Denon CD player?


Solution :
A) disassemble the player and resolder these cracked solder joints below the affected buttons
B) instruct DJ(s) to not pound the buttons
C) if B is ineffective, pound on DJ until it is

Shown here : dn-s1000, play button is in the far corner. I’ve seen the same problem on most Denons and a couple of Stantons.


When I originally posted this, my phone autocorrected “Denon” to “Demon”. Boy, when these solder joints go bad… you’ll think there IS a demon in your CD player, bent on ruining your DJ sets… 😀
