Thanks!
Of course the cheapest way is Eric's approach. Nothing to order anymore as you have the fader; fixed in half an hour.
If you like the original part, the one on the site you mentioned looks original to me and is plug and play.
The part I mentioned is a naked pcb with only the fader soldered in place. The LED, trimpot and wires have to come off from the old pcb. I usually bye it at +/- 15 (And sell it double of course )
Only problem for you will be ordering the EVBxxxxx part.
So, finally, if I were you, I would do as Eric suggests.

did you try contact cleaner? it cleans and lubs. and on faders
i use a pair of needel nose pliers to tighten the steel cage around the fader to the pcb. should be like 4 or 6 little steel
fingers holding it together. thay loosen up over time. i got a few back from the dead doing this



but if it was used in a club there likelly used up

I bet that fader is already full of that spray...


Shame on you Karma, advising spray on Pro-gear.

To sucessfully service faders requires solvent/contact oil spray and high pressure compressed air to flush out any junk.
Often the carbon tracks are worn out and replacement may be the only option.

Ok, I'm slightly comfortable doing this. Does anybody know which pins on the 8-pin pitch fader match up with the pins on the 6-pin fader?

Default Laziness.... Huh...

If you have an ohm meter/multimeter you can work it out for yourself, or would you like one of us to come around and slap it into you !...

Eric.

Ok, so that was a bit lazy. Sorry, that's not really how I meant to come off.

I certainly appreciate all your help, and since at least one poster had mentioned doing this before, I thought somebody might have the answer on the tip of his tongue. I will try to figure it out on my own, but my "electronics skills" (in quotes because I don't really have any) don't go any farther than operating a soldering iron and solder sucker. I guess now is the time I'll learn some of this stuff!

Well, if you don't have a meter it will be a bit harder.
Buying a cheap one could be a solution.
Otherwise, try to follow the printed circuit board layout,
and try to find out what wires should go where.
Make a drawing.
Presumably only 3 wires will go to the fader.
The others will go to the LED and the preset.

Good luck
