    Default Removing that ultra-stubborn "BROWSE" knob from a Mixtrack Pro

    Hau deaux?

    I feel like if I pull any harder, I'll break something... and if I can't get it off to put this fatty Chroma Cap on, I'll definitely break something (more than likely a window, along with the Mixtrack itself).

    Any tips, tricks, hidden secrets, Easter eggs, or magical spells that might help?

    Seriously? Not one person has successfully removed one... or even heard of one being removed? Wow. I had no idea that this was one of those great DJ mysteries/dark secrets that "we just don't talk about"!

    Methinks I can remove it from the bottom, but that's purpose defeating as the fatty knobs more than likely won't fit. Sucks too, because out of all the knobs that's the one I really want to feel rubbery. Pupe.

    There is nothing much to know about an encoder like those. They all look the same (i guess).

    When I get a stubborn knob that doesn't want to come out I get something like a knife or something below and I try gently lift it up.

    Then open it, get the cap off and get the knob off. Or where you talking about resoldering a new one?

    You are a tremendous help, don't let anyone else tell you differently.

    Does that mean you take the lid off and it's easy to remove? Its the only one I wont be able to replace with alu lower profile ones.

    Make sure to place something in between knob and top plate (12 o'clock) then use two flat screwdrivers, stick it under (4 and 8 0'clock) and use power. If this doesn't work I'd cut it open

    Hm might just spray paint it, not sure I'd be able to find one that big to replace it. I had tried pliers to get it off.

    Combine pliers and what I said. Don't lose faith, use your third hand if needed
