Before you ask: Yes, I called Denon but they don't sell the part separately.


I bought these D2000's for 40$. They're in excellent shape for playback, and sound amazing, only issue is that the "joint" that connects the D2000's from the headband slide to the drive cup, is broken. Now, does anyone know where I can get this part? I'm pretty sure I need to replace the entire cup center, meaning where the Driver/backing connect to the headphone band.

It goes like this

Pad|White plastic holding pad| Plastic where joint is located| driver, screwed onto that plastic| Cup back screwed onto the driver

If I can't find the part, I guess I'll just have to jimmy rig my own joint.
Sigh, denon wants 55$ JUST to look at them, even though I know what's wrong. I just want the part :[ They said after they look at the, if the repair cente can't fix em [lord knows why they couldn't] I could trade for a new pair, but who knows how much that is ON TOP of the 55$.

Heres pics, click to pop, they're big 56k warning!

the images pop, so click for much bigger images!


What the joint connected should look like



Thanks!

From what I can see from your pictures, you may be over-assessing what you might need to replace . I wish I had the time to brainstorm this w/ you a bit more right now, but I'm out the door to go to work. I will think on it while I'm at work (Hey, it's Friday, they shouldn't expect me to concentrate on work by now !). I will offer one suggestion for now though. You don't have to replace"like" for "like". This is not a critical requirment here. Later.

I recall reading a topic or two here in which someone described fixing your issue with some small nuts and bolts.

You received a heck of a deal for those phones.

If it is just that screw that is the problem & it needs to be replaced you might want to check out a website called ThinkGeek & check out the Flexable Shaft Ratcheting Screwdriver. It looks like it could work if you can find the right screw & minature bit.

Correct. I had the same issue with my D2000.
At first glance, it looked like it was broken (almost got a heartattack), but then I found the screw on my chair. I put the screw and washer back in place.
