Question about Pioneer CDJ-800 Turntable

1 Answer

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 left the material in the bar. Tomorrow I'll check it, and maybe I make a video to show you what's wrong after all. I guess it is easyer with a video then with words. Anyway the cdj makes exactly the same thing that this one does http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2c9evu9RdIk and the error is the same. SECOUND: some functions are KO like: master tempo knob, pitch tempo knob [10% / 100%] and I think vinyl knob (knobs are dead, nothing happens when I press them). AND LAST: cue and play functions act weired. music never stops. When I press cue, it goes back to the cue point but then the music starts again. it is acting like a stutter. play/pause function acts exactly the same way like cue. it doesn't pauses the track, it just returns it to the cue point and starts again alone. I don't know if that matters, but the beer fell more or less on the part where the reverse function is. I think it got into the device thrue the jogwhell, reverse knob and track search knob. thanks for your help

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 :-

If my home brewed beer has come out a bit dry and sharp tasting is there anything I can do about it, or should I just chuck it out?


No - don't throw it out. You can try and sweeten it a bit. The yeast has consumed all the sweetness in the beer but you can add sugar (a little bit at a time) and taste it as you go along.

Does the type of glass you use for draught beer matter in regards to the style of beer?


According to beer manufacturers, yes. This is especially true for wheat beers. Most wheat beer glasses are specifically designed to tall to help trap yeast sediment at the bottom of the glass so that it does not blend with the rest of the beer while you are drinking it.

CDJ 800 MK2 - when disk is inserted the disk attempts to spin but does not spin fast enough to read then ejects disk. I have had the transport replaced but this did not fix the problem. Could it be a bad...


For the record I own a pair of CDJ 400's. This is an odd problem as I could only really think of one problem. It may be extremely dusty inside to the point where it is not allowing the spinning of the discs. Try your best to also see if something was jammed in there or if anything at all is stuck. Your going to need to do a bit of cleaning in there and that's honestly my best advice, good luck!

My jog wheel sticks / doesn't glide like it should...


I had the exact same problem. I was working a party when some drunk ******* spilled some beer in my coffin case, thus getting into the jog wheel and cue button. I continued to work with it for a few months but got pretty fed up and brought it to a pio dealer. They fixed it up quick and cheap, now it glides like my other mk3s. I'd say bring it in a get a quick quote.

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.
