By following the steps of this editorial you void your warranty. When your warranty. is still valid this may only be done by an official Pioneer Service Center.

Check to get in contact with the Pioneer Head Office in your country. They can give you detailed information who to call.

The DJM-600's faders and Cross Fader are very easy replaceable if you know what you need to do. The following is a guideline how to do a proper replacement. This should only be done when no warranty is valid and by people that have some kind of technical knowledgement.

The part number that you need to order the Cross Fader Assy is DWG 1519 this is the best option but not the only one.

There is another possibility : ordering the Fader itself (Variable Resistor : DCV 1006). But when you want to do that to save money: it will cost you extra time to desolder the old fader from the PCB and mounting the new one on it's place. So most cost effective is to replace the fader including the PCB.
