You did not mention that you have a power amplifier to drive your Speakers. well you need to have one unless you have a powered speaker. the sugnal comes from the mixer main output goes to the input of your amp. or powered speaker.

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.

Bits of paper / pieces of CD lables can get stuck inside and rub on the CD causing the noise you are hearing

Pioneer cdj 800 display often goes out, but comes back on after I give it a good whack (yeah I know, but it worked in Back to the Future and for my cdj's). What's the problem here/where can I parts


I am an aircraft mechanic not an electrician, but I narrowed it down to the power supply. Somewhere on the power supply there is a connection that is making a bad connection. I will keep looking and post if found! :)

My power cord was pulled out while still on.


Are you talking about a Numark DXM mixer? If so, why would you say you have an issue with a CDJ-800? Numark Parts can be found here.

If not, you need to be more specific as to who makes your mixer.

Error e-8709


I don't understand what you mean by "plug electricity from the speaker to my CD desk"?

Could you clarify this.

The E-8709 error states you have an issue with the cd transport or CD eject mechanism. You would need to take it to a service center to get it checked out.

One cdj and one turntable


This is possible, by connecting your turntable to the Line Input on the serato box. Then just connect both to your LINE INPUT on your mixer, and set the controls on your Serato Software to LINE INPUT - NOT Phono.

No sound comming from the speakers


Assuming you have plugged it into your mixer first, be sure that you:
A) matched the red and white RCA cable heads with the red and white input port on the mixer and output ports on the CDJ.
B) make sure you've plugged in to the "Line" ports, not the "phono" ports on one channel of your mixer.
C) lastly, make sure your headphones are plugged into the headphone jack of the mixer, have the "monitor" volume turned up, have the correct channel selected and make sure the channel selector switch is set to the same channel your CDJ is plugged into.
That should do it.

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.
