Question about Pioneer CDJ-100 Turntable

3 Answers

Cdj issues i recently just moved and i packed my equipment up as securely as possible, but when i hooked everything back up one of cdjs was not working.  it accepts the cd with no problem and visibly everything looks like its operating fine but the cd will not play.  It goes to track one immediately just like normal but just sits there for about 1 minute without ever playing then goes to track 0.  Its odd because it obviously reads the cd because you can skip through the correct amount of tracks, but they wont play.  Im certain the cd is not the issue because they work fine in my other cdj100.  is there anything i can do on my own to fix this?  any help would be greatly appreciated.  my email address is : [email protected]

Try burning your audio cd's without finalizing the disc...that helped me alot, i had tons of media reading errors like trouble changing tracks, insane loading times, trouble pausing setting up a cue in track, lots of track skipping etc. chosing to not finalize the disc when burning helped all of those. also burn at a low speed, pref 1x or atleast 4x, and choose good media (verbatim for instance works great).

Are you getting error messages? If you hold down the pause button for 10 seconds on that model , you should get one.

Keep me posted.

Everything works ok on the pioneer cdj apart from the display screen and jog wheel display is not lit up? Do you know what this could be? Thanks

I gather it might be getting moved about being DJ equipment? The power supply ribbon can come loose and should just need to be popped back into its receptacle. Ufortunatly there is no way to resolve the issue from the outside, you are going to have to get in there and do some digging.

Does the pioneer cdj-800 play mp3?

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

I have a problem with one cdj 200.some gear in the cd player have problem and i can't put out the disc,have you see the same problem again?

There should be a pin on the bottom of the cdj, this is the push pin that will manually release the cd inside. BE CAREFUL!. This will work much like the pinholes in cd trays on computers. Just push it in to release the jammed cd. This may not work, and is only a suggestion. If this does not work, I'd attempt to contact Pioneer directly for a service request. Hope this helps!

Pitch control adjustment for Pioneer CDJs??

Your best option is to get a hold of the service manual for this model. Which is available HERE. It tells you how to align, calibrate, disassemble, and clean the unit. As well as assorted schematics and diagrams you'll need in order to troubleshoot issues with the unit.

Now, just because you've master the 1200s, doesn't mean that this beast is just as easy. It's not. This is COMPLETELY different than an analog turntable like the 1200s. You have to be cautious with ESD, the Laser, and an assortment of other fragile components on this unit.

So, I say, experiment on your own gear, this way you won't mess up a customer's unit. Or buy yourself a used, damaged unit, and work on re-building that one. It's the only way your going to learn.

Hope this helps some.
