More than likely you have a bad switch, although this is not something that you could service yourself. I would suggest taking it to a service center in your area. Make sure they are Pioneer authorized, and know what a CDJ800 unit is!

My Pioneer CDJ 800 MK 2 - will not play in the vinyl mode, the cue button is flashing _ if i take it out of vinyl mode it will play fine , do i need to reset it?


Does the unit play in vinyl mode if you turn the platter by hand?. If this the case the commom fault in the "sheet switch" which is under the platter and sensors the pressure when you press the platter.

The "sheet switch" and it is a circular plastic "sandwich" of multiple contacts and when constant pressure is put on it (i.e something is sat on it for a long time), it tends to stick together giving the effect you are pressing it when you're not.
The part will cost you about £30.00 + fitting - unless you are confident enough to do it yourself

Monitor Cue problem


If you don't have the manual it is here:http://www.behringer.de/EN/downloads/pdf/DJX700_P0165_M_EN.pdf Have a look at page 4 under Monitor, mode switch and mix control. You might be having problems with them.

CD BACKSPIN


CD Mode does not react in the same manner as as Vinyl mode when you try to back spin. At the very least, you will only be able to go back a few bars. It's mainly used to set the Cue properly.

If you want it to back spin, you'll have to use the Vinyl mode.

Here's a procedure for setting the tonearm...

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

Unplug the power to the turntable and place it on a perfectly level surface.

Set the Tracking Force and AntiSkating to 0.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter Clockwise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
If you don't have a Stylus Tracking Force Gauge. Dial in the prescribed tracking force and a corresponding anti-skate reading. Play records.

How to use Audioline Pro DJ Multimedia Mixer M Dex 3.0


I have been recently using this Cd Dj deck at parties and have some general knowledge of the product, it has alot of potential. Is there anything in particular that you need help with? Or is it the general concept of using them.
Currently, i don't think there are that many websites that explain how to use the Cd decks, however i can provide you with some basic information. Most of the information here could be worked out by trial & error.
- Pitch control on the right of each cd deck can be slid up ( slows it down %) and slid down (speeding the track up %) i think the pitch control has a range of either +-10% or +-16%.

- Cue button, has the potential for Cue'ing or setting up the cd to instantly jump to the "cue'd" point with the press of this CUE button. This is done by either pressing play/pause button and rotating the jog wheel to a point of time in the track which automatically sets the cue point OR holding down the >> or << search button to find a spot within the track at a greater speed.

-Vinyl mode. Pressing this button will set the deck to the "vinyl mode" to simulate scratching or even backspins. pressing this button again will change the mode back.

- the Crossfader (or 'X' fader) button will select the left cd track if the x fader is all the way to the left and the right track if the x fader is all the way to right. having the X fader in the middle will play both tracks together.

- Low, Mid, High. These nobs on the middle section of the deck change the individual track by which it is corresponds. (Left side = left cd track, and vica versa) Low refers to the Bass of a track which can be essential for mixing two tracks and elminating excess bass noise. Mid refers to the drumming and even synth of a track, and changing this can result in some cool sounding effects. High refers to the 'high' frequencies of the track playing, such as snares, hi hats and possibly vocals. All these controls are crucial to understand in order to mix 2 songs together successfully. It's good to get a chance to muck around with these cointrols. The middle of each control resets the setting to normal or default.

- Channel fader. the two controls that slide up & down on both sides of the mixer on the deck. This is also referred to the volume setting. Useful for mixing seamlessly one track into another.

- Gain. This control at the top of the mixer refers to the volume level or 'gain' of the cd track that it corresponds to.

- Jog wheel. Serves 3 purposes. firstly it can be used whilst a song is playing to temporarily speed up or slow down the track to match with the song on the opposite side. secondly, whilst holding down the 'search' button, operates as a control to quickly find a spot in a song. and lastly when selecting "vinyl" mode, can simulate the reaction of a vinyl turntable. The scatch function, and backspin effect.

- The pitch button, is just another control to speed up or slow down a song temporarily whilst holding down the '+' or '-' button.

- Reverse button, for a certain amount of time will play the song on the left or right in reverse.

- Time. this button is essential to change the time selection on the cd deck, to either "Time elapsed", "Time remaining" and "total time remaining on the cd".

- the "tap" button, allows the user to physically "tap" the button in time with the song's beat, which calculates the Beats per Minute (Bpm) of that song. which is essential to work out the bpm of 1 track to mix the speed with that of the opposite deck.

- Cd/usb/sd, changes the mode of system reading. from CD to USB or SD card.

I really hope this general guide to using the Audioline ProDJ MDex3 has helped!
Peace. Marc.

My play pause cue button has worn out on my cdj 800 1


No, the cue buttons for the CDJ800 and CDJ800MK2 are configured differently, and will not fit. You can take your existing buttons off, take them to a body shop, and have them dip it in chrome!

Hope this helps some.

Get yourself a manual. It will help you. You can DOWNLOAD A FREE COPY of the PIONEER DJM600 INSTRUCTION MANUAL from HERE.

Now, you have to use the CUE button function on each channel to select what you want to hear when you cue things in the headphones. Last, you control the volume of the master cue in the headphones using the CUE volume of the headphone CUE section.
