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!

A drunk guy throwed a little bit of beer on the cdj (it was REALY just a little bit) and it's having many problems now: FIRST: i can't eject or insert any cd's. I think it is Error 9101. Not sure because I...


If this was brought to me for repair the first thing I would do is completly strip the player to clean out any beer residue. This would involve washing all the plastic parts (top chassis, knobs, jog wheel parts etc etc) in warm soapy water. Any residue on the circuit boards is best cleaned off with a toothbrush and an alcohol based spray / liquid such as Isopropyl alcohol (if nothing else available metholated spirit will do but it tends to leave a purple residue itself).
Some spare parts may well be needed if, for instance the beer has got into the tack switches or pitch fader etc.
Error 9101 is stated as :-
Mechanical time out - Abnormality of disc loading mechanism
so the beer may well have got in the deck aswell but it could also be the electronics are confused causing the deck to do stange things thus generating the fault code - hard to say for sure without having the player on the workbence.
I hope this information helps.

Good source of spare parts :-

Tip

DVJ-X1 Cue before inserting disk.


The DVJ-X1 has a fun little bug/feature that is often over looked.

For a cd press the track forward/previous to select the track you want to play BEFORE you insert a disk, once you have the disk inserted and it initializes the deck will cue to that track automatically.

With a DVD you need to also select the TITLE as well as the TRACK most of the time with promo only or rock america disks there is only one track for videos so select TITLE 01 first then the appropriate Chapter.

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

email me if you would like to order one. mail@technicsdjuk.com

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.

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.

CDJ800 vinyl modus


Hi Mate

My last post was a CDJ with a separate fault, causing a similar type fault.

99% of the time, this particular fault is the Flac switch under the platter jog wheel, take the jog wheel apart clean the plastic strip that runs around the jog wheel, the one with rubber feet that activates as a pressure switch.

Often there is air bubbles, liquid, condensation in between the two layers - causing it to stay in touch mode. If that doesn't fix it then you need to replace that strip (pressure switch). They are about £30 quid.

All the best and good luck
