Re: cdj 800

CD reader sounds like it's stuck. You might have some debris inside, or the reader might need to be replaced. Not an easy fix, and I would suggest contacting a service center for assistance.

My touch release is turned to the fastest setting yet when I release the cd to start it drags for the first second then plays normal

I believe you are trying to play a record rather than a CD. It is slipping on the mat when you start playing. Your other CDJ hasa better "grip"

Does the pioneer cdj-800 play mp3?

Yes it does. Pionner's CDJs are compatible with mp3s since CDJ200.

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.

Player jumps back to previous track for no reason

Have you tried cleaning the lens out? Invest in a good quality CD cleaner. IF this does not solve your problem, then you more than likely have damage to the reader, and will need to be replaced.

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.
