If you are experiencing any issues with the CDJs, then a hard reset will most likely resolve the issue. Here's how to reset both a CDJ-2000NXS2 and a CDJ-3000

To reset any CDJ-2000NXS2 back to its factory settings, removing any glitches or presets, please perform the following:

  • Remove your USB device/CD/USB cables
  • Switch the CDJ off using the power button at the back of the unit
  • Hold down the USB Stop button, the Disc Eject button, and the power button, until you get a message on the screen stating that the settings have been restored to factory defaults
  • Let go of all 3 buttons, then switch the unit off and on again

NOTE: Once the CDJ is reset, you will need to re-enable 'Auto Cue' by pressing the TIME MODE - AUTO CUE button for two seconds, until it is displayed on the left-hand side of the display (button as shown in the image below).
