Question about Pioneer CDJ-800 Turntable
Okay, so I loaned my cdj to a fellow dj for a gig. A wonderful alcoholic beverage was spilled across the platter. The cdj turns on and actually works perfectly normal EXCEPT the platter does not move as easy as it did before. It is almost like sticky button syndrome. I am convinced if I can clean the inside of the platter with windex and q-tips... everything will be back to normal. Does anyone have a diagram of how to take the platter off? I need these tables for a gig soon so any help would be appreciated!
Usually the platter is held on by a simple cir clip around the record spindle , sometimes covered with a small plastic disc on the top .
but I suggest that first you check the actual motor below the deck chances are this is a direct drive system ( no rubber wheel on the fulcrum motor being driven by a primitive spindle ) as the older type are so unreliable now days and newer decks are mostly direct .
with the power unplugged remove the deck from the case a series of screws at the base gently pries apart and check for spillage , you will need to get as much sugar substance or beer off the deck as you can a small paint brush with methylated spirits is good as it evaporates and cleans well , good to use cleaning the motor also particularly around the bearings .. with careful inspection and methodical observance you shouldn't have too much of a problem , also if this has a preamp fitted check for spillage on that also .. then afterward a small hairdryer will clear the rest .... good luck Regards Vortash
