Hi there,

first time i´m trying to fix an electronic device (music controller Numark Mixtrack Pro II)

the bass potentiometer was not working great so i removed the faulty one and a good one to measure it, since there is no reference on the potentiometer .

It has 4 pins and measuring 1 and 3 it gives me 9,3 k ohm, this potentiometer has the middle point where 1-2 has 4,85 k and 2-3 has 4,66

When we set to the middle we feel the place where it should be to be centered.

Looking on the internet I can´t find anything with this values.

Am I looking in the wrong direction?
thanks for any tips

Welcome to maker.pro.
From your measurements the pot is a 10k.
What does it meaure between pins 1 and 4, and between pins 3 and 4?

By " nothing" do you mean zero Ohms, or open circuit (infinite Ohms/OL)?
What is the purpose of pin 4? Does it connect to the metalwork of the pot?
