    Anyone else done this?

    Has happened to me twice now :mad: Both times the deck seemed fine, was not overly hot or anything and is still playing fine when mixing.

    Such a muppet

    I've heard that Pioneer CDJ 1000's have poor quality heat sinks in them and to avoid leaving them on for extended periods of time. However, that being said, I leave mine on all the time for hours and have never had any problem with overheating.

    oh yeah and her uneven boobs - but look at that position man, she's basically screaming for someone to plough her. May as well have a sign that says "In the butt! In the butt!"

    Biggest reason for overheating is normally the placing of your equipment. Can the air pass underneath, good thing. Built in equipment looks fucking sick, but watch out though. Improper installment easily leads to overheating...

    How long do the little bulbs last for though? On my mates decks one of them has gone out, this could be due to leaving them on!
