    Hey guys,

    Fresh new member from the Netherlands here.
    I'm considering a DM-4800 on offer, but it seems to have a few minor faults, such as some knobs missing. Worst thing is a broken fader.
    I have tried to search the forums, but the search function seems to be kaput so sorry if this has been covered elsewhere. In short: is it easy to get a hold of spare parts for the DM-3200/4800?

    Cheers!
    Marcel

    Hi Marcel,
    Welkom hier!
    You could contact Hanex Service in Leimuiden. I purchased Tascam parts there in the past.
    BTW: get the DM4800!!

    Yeah.. Search on this site is like impossible.
    I got a back up mixer for parts and ended up using it to cascade 2 mixers together.

    I thought the search on the forum broke too but then I realized it defaults to GOOGLE results. Click on the SITE RESULTS tab and you will see it will search the site just fine.

    Hey guys, many thanks. Already feels like a warm bath here. :)
    You know what, I just made a deal. Going to pick it up tonight. *happy dance*.

    Thanks, @Peter Batah, It's still there. A bit steep price, I'll wait and see which of the faders is broken. I didn't realise I have to switch out a whole fader board for that. Coming from a Mackie controller this seems quite odd, since you can switch out any fader individually.

    EDIT: actually the price is not so bad, however paying half of the price for shipping feels like overkill to me.

    Just called the guys at Hanex here in the Netherlands and they actually have the fader I can use to replace the faulty one. Just to let any Dutch member here know there are spare parts indeed and you don't have to order for ridiculous prices from the US on Ebay. :)

    Ok, I have a question regarding the fader replacement. Does this mean I have to solder on the fader board PCB? To be honest, I have never done this on a PCB. Is it something a layman could do, or do I have to turn the console in for repair?

    Related question: the button for layer one is flaky and has to be pressed real hard. Is this something that can be replaced? I can get the bracket and the plastic button, but is this also a problem on the sub board?

    And lastly, one of the encoder has been broken off. I can get a new one, but I could also glue the top back on. Again: is replacing a doable job, or does it involve soldering as well?

    When these three things are solved, the mixer is in mint condition, apart from some missing knobs (8 to be exact, all light grey ones. Anyone having a couple of spare ones? :).

    Thanks again guys.

    @Marvel I can't speak for anything other than the "flaky button" DeoxIT did the trick for me. Haven't had an issue since. Good luck!
