    hey guys,

    ive got a Behringer DJX 700 mixer and the bass knobs on the 2 channles i use for my turntabels are getting abit wobbley. I know this is my own fault for doing the typical jumpin about while im mixing and getting rough with it, but... is there anything i can do, to get them tight agen, that dosnt require too much technical knowlage?

    cheers ibby!

    probly just need to tighten the nuts, pull the plastic bit off, shuld come off very easy, and you should see the nut underneath clamping it to the mixers panel, fingers will keep it tightened for a little while, but a spanner or sumthing will tighten in better...carefull you dont over do it and break the connection underneath

    dose that meen your knob is always stiff... and your nuts are always some what tight?

    and Nice one miszt! cant belive i didnt think of that, use to do that with the volume and tone knobs on my guitar back in my metal head days!!

    EDIT: just realised the reason i didnt think of that is coz ive alredy tryed it and theres just a peg sticking out! cheers anyway though! Anyone else know of a way to remedy my knob problems?
