Question about Pioneer CDJ-800 Turntable

Spilled drink on cdj800

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!

    Thank you Vortash! I will get it done after work tonight. That does help me tons. I just didn't want to open it up incorrectly and disconnect any wires that were in the way. I rebuild computers all the time, but cdj's are not in my world of rebuilding.

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

Spilled beer on plater Pioneer CDJ-800MK2


Well, the problem is that you spilled beer on your platter.

More than likely the beer dried up, and now it's all sticky.

Professional cleaning is highly suggested.

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.

Spilled coke on my CDJ 800MK2


Clean all the rubber and plastic parts with humidified towels, clean all teh metallic parts with 70% isopropyl alcohol solution, to prevent oxidation.
Be careful no liquid is being dropped or leaking inside unit when cleaning.

If coke had been spilled inside the unit, on the circuits, you will need to take apart the unit and dry well using an hairdryer from distance , if circuits are sticky, use cotton and pure isopropyl alcohol to clean after drying.

This is a cd reader issue. More than likely it will need to be replaced. If your in the U.S., you can ship in your unit for repair by going here: Pioneer CDJ800 Repair

If your outside the U.S., you'll need to find an authorized Pioneer repair center to assist with this.

You can also just purchase the part, and bring it with you to the service shop for replacement.

Hey how come i cant use my loop features on my cdj800 with my serato?


It's the limitations of Serato. Because it's sampling in real-time, the signal cannot be manipulated by the CDJ800. Sorry, there is no way around this. Talk to Serato about this.

Cdj-800MK2 jog problem


From the video, it just looks like there might be some debris/dirt underneath the platter. There is a sensor pad under the platter, and if there is anything disrupting the pad, you'll have those issues.

Try opening her up, and cleaning her out. Or take her to a service center for a professional cleaning.
