CDJ 800 Bad Laser

It seems that my cdj800 might have a broken laser? When a disc is loaded into the deck, it spins and repeats the spin but will not read any media from the disc and automaticly ejects the disc, Displaying "NO DISC". Would that be the problem? And if so pioneer offers a replacement laser for the unit, How diffiult would it be for me to replace it? Is it a simple unscrew and unplug process? It seems that my cdj800 might have a broken laser?

Yes, sounds like you have a bad traverse assembly (laser). You can replace it yourself, however, I wouldn't suggest it, as you need to calibrate the assembly after the installation, and remove a solder bridge (which keeps the unit safe during transport). It is a little complicated, if you don't have experiencing doing this type of work. Taking it to a service center would be your best option.

My cdj100 turntable won't load the inserted cd.


If it won't physically load the disc then this part might be needed :-

If it goes in but won't read the disc then the laser has most likley failed. Contact me for further details / repair

If you replaced the tray yourself, then more than likely you did not remove the solder bridge that the manufacturer puts in place to protect the part from damage in shipping.

Detailed instructions on removed this solder bridge are LOCATED HERE. These instructions apply to both the CDJ800 and the CDJ800MK2 models.

CDJ 800 Bad Laser


Yes, sounds like a damaged reader/tray. This is not an easy fix. Although there is no soldering involved, it's sort of like a car. In order to get to the engine, you have to remove a whole lot of other sections first. Often times when you put it back together, you'll find yourself with some extra pieces you didn't have when you started. With that said, I do not suggest you do this yourself, unless you are completely 100% confident in your ability. Or, get some help.

The part is available HERE - at the cost of $49.99
