Error 9101 is a read/tray error. More than likely your reader/pick up tray is faulty, and will need to be replaced. For the CDJ700, cost for a new pick up assembly is about $75 - and not an easy fix. Lots of stuff to remove first. Kinda like a car. To get to 1 section, you have to remove 3 others.

Hope this helps.

My pioneer cdj-700s no run

Probably your optical unit is worn. If you 700s are the newer ones, it'll be easy. Unscrew the 4 black screw under the unit to release the cover. Is the optical unit is exposed, check the label over it. If it says DWY1069, you'll only have to replace it, readily avaliable on ebay. It can be found very cheap ($15-$25).
If it says DWY1067, you have a big problem like me. 1067 is out of production. Check my other posts on how i'm trying to solve it.

How to detach plastic tray to replace a CDJ-700s DWY 1069 Lens?

There are actually 4 screws. If you can only see 3 then this means the pickup (DWY1069) is already exposed and you do not need to remove the tray.

From here, detach the cable to the pickup (lift the small dark brown cable lock) then loosen the screw on the holding the slide next to the stepper motor and remove the screw at the other end of the same slide. Then the pickup should easily come out.

Hi Je remy
I have a 700s too, it´s showing problems similar to yours. Mine is even worst, it almost doesn´t play no more (shows "NO DISC"). Sometimes, when i turn it off and on, or open the cover, it reads... When pause is pressed, it holds the music for some seconds, then it "slides" thru the music... Sometimes it display an error message (something like E-8something).
I think all these errors are caused by a worn optic reader, but i´m not sure. I´ve already opened my unit and cleaned the lens, but no bail.
Here in Brazil a new optic reader can be found for R$150 (around U$90). I´ve just found out the same unit in UK for 150 pounds, so i´m suspicius that those units sold here aren´t really new... I´m planning to replace mine, but first i must be sure that the problem is really caused by the reader.
I don´t know if u have already opened yours, but it´s pretty simple to replace the unit, just some screws to loose (12, if i´m not mistaken - 4 ouside, 4 holding the lens protective cover, and 4 holding two inox sticks where the reader slides over). 700s´ units are Part No DWY1067, and you probably won´t find those anymore. You´ll only find the DWY1069, originally found in CDJ-100s (technically almost same, but probably some newer technology), but they´re totally interchangeable.
Hope could be of some use.
If u want, can contact me at [email protected]
This is the unit seller here in Brazil:

Cdj - 700s

Error 9102 is a disk read error, and you either have a damaged reader or there is something seriously wrong with the tray unit causing the error. Troubleshooting is not that simple for this unit, you will need a multimeter, and possibly an oscilloscope to trace the error. More than likely, you will need to have the tray replaced if the error persists.

Open error

So your tray does not open? Could either be a faulty switch, or the tray might be damaged. If you are getting an error, then that means the switch is ok, because it is sending the eject signal to the unit. So you might have a faulty tray, or loading motor. Not an easy self-fix.
