So after some googling, I found some archived threads regarding issues with the ethernet port. Took my cdj to the closest authorized repair center and they said that it is a known issue and that despite my deck being out of warranty, they were going to try to get authorization to do the repair for free instead of 200 dollars.
So despite how tacky it is, I bought a brand new cdj 2000 today to use for the weekend and I will be returning it once my deck is done being serviced. Luckily PSSL takes care of me and I was honest with them about my intentions of basically renting it from them, but it was the only solution I could come up with. I was shocked at how firmly the new decks ethernet port felt in contrast to the one that has failed. My unit had a ridiculous amount of play.
So despite the headache, I can still honestly say it is a small price to play for a piece of gear that 99.99% of the time does exactly what I need it to do. Considering all of the ranting I read on this forum, I still think their is NO OTHER PLAYER that even comes close to this level of perfection. Now I just need to get my fader replaced on my djm 800 and I will be a happy camper. 2nd fader to fly off while mixing in 6 months, but I think my intensity might have more to do with it.
