Pioneer 800 mk1 eject disc when powers on

Well, the optical pickup is not able to read the disk. First off, did you use ESD protection when you installed it? If not, it may already be damaged. For more information, or should you have further questions, please visit my website at You may contact me directly through the website. Thank you.

CDJ 800 Bad Laser

Yes, sounds like you have a bad traverse assembly (laser). You can replace it yourself, however, I wouldn't suggest it, as you need to calibrate the assembly after the installation, and remove a solder bridge (which keeps the unit safe during transport). It is a little complicated, if you don't have experiencing doing this type of work. Taking it to a service center would be your best option.

You can purchase the part HERE

CD automatically ejects

Sounds like a tray issue. Unfortunately the only option is to have the tray replaced.

CDJ 800 Bad Laser

Yes, sounds like a damaged reader/tray. This is not an easy fix. Although there is no soldering involved, it's sort of like a car. In order to get to the engine, you have to remove a whole lot of other sections first. Often times when you put it back together, you'll find yourself with some extra pieces you didn't have when you started. With that said, I do not suggest you do this yourself, unless you are completely 100% confident in your ability. Or, get some help.

The part is available HERE - at the cost of $49.99
