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.
There are two reasons for this fault. The first one is with its disc loading mechanism. If the mechanism do not place the disc properly on to the reading chasis, this fault can be. It will spin for some time and will ejected automatically The second one is with its optical pickup unit. If optical pickup unit do not read the disc; due to some fault to it [dust or dirt over the optical lens]. But in this case, there will be only "No Disc" display will be there. No automatic ejection will take place. With your player, the first sated might be the case. The disc loading mechanism might need replacement.
This is more than likely a laser issue. Does it spin the disc up? The first thing the CDJ will do when you put a disc in, is look for a reflection of the laser, which tells it that there is a disc inserted. There should be a short pause whilst it does this, before it fails and spits the disc back out again. If this is the case, there is either dirt and grime on the laser lens, or the laser needs to be replaced. Normally I recommend replacing the traverse mechanism, which includes the spindle motor and laser assembly.
If this needs to be replaced, either ask for more help, or contact your local Pioneer Service Agent.
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.
