Question about Pioneer CDJ-800 Turntable

Pitch control adjustment for Pioneer CDJs??

I am now starting to fix CDJ players along with Technics 1200 series turntables. I got the 1200's locked down, but i need to know how to adjust the pitch control on CDJs.Hopefully a technician will read this: i cannot mess up by experimenting with a costumers player. My guarantee: If i broke it, they get my personal 1210s or CDJ MK2s. A mistake or "oops" is no option for me -

Your best option is to get a hold of the service manual for this model. Which is available HERE. It tells you how to align, calibrate, disassemble, and clean the unit. As well as assorted schematics and diagrams you'll need in order to troubleshoot issues with the unit.

Now, just because you've master the 1200s, doesn't mean that this beast is just as easy. It's not. This is COMPLETELY different than an analog turntable like the 1200s. You have to be cautious with ESD, the Laser, and an assortment of other fragile components on this unit.

So, I say, experiment on your own gear, this way you won't mess up a customer's unit. Or buy yourself a used, damaged unit, and work on re-building that one. It's the only way your going to learn.

Hope this helps some.

Technic 1200mk2 pitch problems


Check for bad solderings on Q201 and surrounding areas.
Resolder IC101 and IC201. If that doesn't help, Q2 and Q3, both 2SD637R, could be broken. If that doesn't fix it replace the electrolytic capacitors. Cheers john. Styluscity

Does the pioneer cdj-800 play mp3?


Yes it does. Pionner's CDJs are compatible with mp3s since CDJ200.

Pitch Control Problems


More than likely the pitch needs to be calibrated. Although not very hard, I would suggest getting this done by a professional, as it does require opening up your turntable.

Here are instructions - TECHNICS PITCH CALIBRATION

If you cannot perform this, then find yourself a good technician who knows what they are doing.

If this does not work, more than likely either your pitch control, the pitch gain, or one of the IC's need to be replaced - at this stage, only a qualified service tech can help you.

Good luck!

One of my technics' 1200 turntable's tone gets too high


You can try adjusting the pitch's gain, which is located on the pitch control circuit board. Only problem is that you'll have to take apart your turntable in order to get to that section (its on the bottom).

If that does not work, your pitch might be bad, or one of the main circuit drive IC's might be bad.

Hope this helps some.

One cdj and one turntable


This is possible, by connecting your turntable to the Line Input on the serato box. Then just connect both to your LINE INPUT on your mixer, and set the controls on your Serato Software to LINE INPUT - NOT Phono.
