Re: Review: Yamaha YDP2006 Digital Parametric Equalizer

Can’t say I’ve ever seen an XLR with a connection to the ground, but I’d certainly suggest cutting it. If that doesn’t work, then try disconnecting Pin 3 from Pin 1.

Wayne,

Thanks for the review. Based on your review, I bought one of ebay for use in a 2.0 system for the low end frequencies.

I have rca to xlr cables and have a hum in the speakers. It's not overpowering, but I notice it.
You suggested snipping the connection between pin 1 and pin 3. In my xlr, pin 3 is connected to pin 1, and then pin 1 is connected to ground. Should I snip both connections from pin 1 or do I need to re-solder pin 3 to ground and then snip both pin 1 connections?

Re: Review: Yamaha YDP2006 Digital Parametric Equalizer


Wade, upon further thought I think I have an idea of what could be the problem with your original issue, with the low frequency noise. It’s probably a dirty back-panel level switch, most likely the output switch. Anytime I’ve had weird output level issues, this has always been the problem (a recurring one for me, since I run a fan to keep them cool). Try taking the top panel off and squirting some tuner cleaner into the switches and working them back and forth a few times. I’ll be surprised if this doesn’t fix the problem.

Regards,
Wayne

Can’t say I’ve ever come across the problem the OP is describing, Tony - assuming it is indeed the YDP (we’ll know for sure once he hooks up his “new” one). Doesn’t sound like any problem with a pot that I’ve ever had. The only actual potentiometer the YDP has is the input knob anyway.

I do not doubt it would cost more than I would want it to BUT they are not coming up that often for sale!

Just got the second one and I think it is working correctly.

For a moment it was acting a little funny but now all seems to be fine.

Is the problem caused by a dirty pot or is it more than that Wayne?

I’m confident that the cost of a repair would be more than the price of a replacement.

Have another one of these on the way.

Should take care of my problem.

Do you know of anyone who works on these things? I would like to be able to get the first one fixed.

Re: Review: Yamaha YDP2006 Digital Parametric Equalizer

Thanks for your advice.

I should have complained about my nervous controls long before now. I have had this one for over six months and thought it was just a downside of used gear.

I will certainly not keep another one with the same problem.

I am an LP only fellow at the moment so no other source to switch to. This does leave me in the dark, I know.

I have a feeling (hope?) that the controls strangeness might be part of the problem, just took some time to manifest itself? Will know soon enough.

THANKS, again,

Hey Wade,

Can’t say that I’ve ever seen or heard of that problem. I’d suggest, next time it happens switch immediately to a different signal source – CD, steaming music, etc. If the problem goes away, then it’s not the equalizer. Alternately, if you’re using it as a stereo equalizer you could bypass one channel – i.e. wire directly to whatever you have downstream after the equalizer. If you still get the problem in both channels, then it’s not being caused by the equalizer.

BTW, if you do get another one on ebay, they are good about arranging for returns of defective purchases. I wouldn’t accept another one with encoder knob issues, especially if the seller doesn’t disclose this problem.

Regards,
Wayne
