Question about Pioneer CDJ-800 Turntable

1 Answer

CDJ 800 not working due to Voltage Selector?

I was having trouble recording a set on my computer - too much feedback and distortion which seemed to happen with no real reason. So I though I would change the voltage to see if the input to my computer would make a difference. Well, I unplugged to cord as it says to do, switched the voltage over and tried turning it back on once I had plugged it in again. Now it doesn't work on either of the voltages?! Can someone please help me?

What do you mean you changed the voltage? Why would you think this would work? What were the voltage settings originally, and what did you change them to?

If you had too much feedback or distortion, your gain was probably too high, or you had the recording volume on your PC set too high. This has NOTHING to do with voltage. The voltage setting on these units is strictly for 120V or 220V use. Meaning, it can be uses just about anywhere. If your unit is not working, it's because you probably fried the power on it. Are you in Europe, and you tried to set it down to 110/120V? If so, you surely fried it.

CDJ-800 Mk1 No sound output!!!


Not true! CD channels don't require a pre-amp and the cartridge for a turntable does. I suspect that when the power went off the mixer was still on, so that when power was restored it came back on. However this resulted in a surge inside the unit. Magnetic cartridge pre-amps are often very sensitive to this kind of thing and will sometimes fail, while everything else works fine. This would result in no sound from the record decks, but sound from CD players etc.

Power problem, CDJ wont turn on propperly as it is from the US and i live in Birmingham UK


The step down adapter should work fine as long it supplies the voltage and any other ratings shown on the turntable power supply indication pannel. However the problem might already have happened. If the fuses were before the power entered the mains transformer of the unit, then if they were set to blow above the USA voltage then things could be OK. However if the the fuses were in the secondary output from the transformer then the mains will have caused possible damage to the transformer. Maybe even elsewhere.

My touch release is turned to the fastest setting yet when I release the cd to start it drags for the first second then plays normal


I believe you are trying to play a record rather than a CD. It is slipping on the mat when you start playing. Your other CDJ hasa better "grip"

Not reading cd's


First clean the laser head with a Qtip and alcohol. It gotta be perfectly clean, so wipe with fresh brand name qtip and make sure there is not a single dust particle on it. You gotta remove the cabinet with star screwdriver. Your beam might be tired. First try with the clean up! You can get a replacement unit, here http://1200s.com/Store/PARTS-PIONEER-CDJ-800/c271_461_491/p320015/Pioneer_-_CDJ800_CD_Mechanism_w/Pick-up_Assembly/product_info.html
You might want to bring this to a pro sound shop for repair. I'd order the part by myself and bring everything at the repair shop...

No sound from CDJ-800 MK2


Are you getting error messages? Running in thru LINE? Is not on mute? The possiblity of both not playing would lead to process of elimination.

Keep me posted.
