Question about Pioneer CDJ-800 Turntable
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.
