My Pioneer CDJ-800 won't load any discs. The eject mechanism works cuz when I hit eject is the motor works and if I have a disc up to the slot hole, it'll push it up, but it won't grab the disc to load it. Any idea if this is quick fix? Or do I have to go get this repaired.

Well, the optical pickup is not able to read the disk. First off, did you use ESD protection when you installed it? If not, it may already be damaged. For more information, or should you have further questions, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me directly through the website. Thank you.
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.
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.
