20 Most Recent Pioneer CDJ-800 Turntable Questions & Answers


It sounds like you might have problems with your CDs. If you are burning CDs on your computer to play in the CDJ, you need to remember that it will only play audio (wav), or MP3 files. Also, blank data CDs are cheaper that buying audio / music CDs. When you burn your CDs to play back on the CDJ, you have to be sure to burn them as wav or mp3. AAC, MP4, OGG and the other formats will not work in the player. When you burn the CD, ALWAYS burn at a slower speed than what the computer will automatically burn at. You will have to manually set the speed yourself.

Personally- when i burn my tracks CDs for my CD book, I use trusted name brand blank data CDs such as Memorex, Sony, TDK, Fuji, Imation. I burn them as AUDIO ONLY. To avoid any reading mistakes that could happen with any given CD player, i NEVER burn track CDs as mp3. When i burn the CD, i set the writing speed to 24x, 30x, or 32x. I recommend that you DO NOT burn your CDs at any speed faster than 32x. From my experience, that is the fastest and safest burning speed. If you do these things, and you still have problems with the E-83 02 code, then it will only have to be the kind of CDs your using to burn, or your CD burner in your computer. Notice how i didn't mention Maxell CDs up top. 3 months ago, i bought 2 spindles of Maxell data blanks on sale for $9.99 each. I was happy i got them that cheap, but the CDs themselves were no good. Recording everything the way i do, they had popping noises and scratching sounds through-out the disc. I gave the spindles to my neighbor. He was happy to get blank CDs free. I WILL NOT say that Maxell makes a bad product: I still record on cassettes and Maxells are one of my top 3 choices for blank chrome tapes. But the discs i bought were just a bad batch. Maxell is still a trusted name for blank tapes with us older DJs that started out with recording on tapes before the CD format became way cheaper and affordable.

Try burning your discs as audio only, and burn them at 24x, 30x, or 32x ONLY. Buy better brand name data CDs, and you should have no problems. If you use my method as an example, and you still have problems, then you need to get a new CD burner for your computer. They are always cheaper at Staples or Office Depot. Hope **** works out for you : D

The step down adapter should work fine as long it supplies the voltage and any other ratings shown on the turntable power supply indication pannel. However the problem might already have happened. If the fuses were before the power entered the mains transformer of the unit, then if they were set to blow above the USA voltage then things could be OK. However if the the fuses were in the secondary output from the transformer then the mains will have caused possible damage to the transformer. Maybe even elsewhere.

Yes, it can be fixed. You may have a bad jog wheel or the micro switches that reside beneath it. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me directly through the website. Thank you.

Downtown Radio was one of my Authorized Service Centers when I worked for Pioneer. They are no longer in business. The issue that Nathan is having, is quite different than a loss of power or ground, caused by an bad IC Protector, which is merely a complicated fuse. Unfortunately, I think you damaged the Optical Pickup(laser) when you installed it. This part, as well as most parts in this unit, are ESD sensitive and without taking the precautions, that pickup may be useless now. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me directly through the website. Thank you.

I am an aircraft mechanic not an electrician, but I narrowed it down to the power supply. Somewhere on the power supply there is a connection that is making a bad connection. I will keep looking and post if found! :)

This probably means that one or two of the tact switches which enable the loop (loop in, loop out, reloop) is damaged and need to be replaced. In pioneer cd players when a tact switch is semi-broken, then if you press another button then it looks like you pressed that semi-damaged switch. For example you may hit "cue" and the cdj loops! It is quite common.
If you have some soldering skills this is the tact switch:

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.
