NDX400/800 - Dodgy Play button workaround?
Just a quicky for anyone with an NDX400 or 800 handy; did a bit of searching but couldn't find an answer - apologies if this has been done before!
Is there a way of starting a track *without* using the Play button? I've got the chance for a quick deal on a couple of 800s, but one has a broken play button and I urgently need to use them tomorrow... obviously, I'll be getting it fixed as soon as I can, but in the mean time I can't really get them unless I find some sort of workaround for the next 24 hours!
Any ideas? I don't suppose the Pause button doubles up as Play when the unit's stopped?
can't you use the plattern in vinyl mode. that's another way to start a track. on pioneer CDJs at least.

Of course, I'm still gonna get the play button replaced... but it's worth knowing just in case.
