Hey DJTT dudes,
Got an superb deal on a CDJ 800 mk1 that I was planning on using as a third deck to mess around with. The guy I got it from said he had not used it in a while and last time he used it he said it worked fine. I unfortunately was unable to test it before buying it but it was cheap enough that if it didn't work I wouldn't be too upset about it (cheaper than a night at the bar). Well of course, it doesn't work.
The symptoms are not really indicative of just one piece being broken so I am at sort of a loss about where to start and was hoping maybe one of you guys had cracked one open or have seen this issue before.
1. The unit is plugged in and when you depress the power button it doesn't turn on. A slight tap on the top of the case and it magically comes to life. Whats going on here?
2.When it is on, the display and the middle of the jog wheel show no data. The rest of the buttons except the cue and start buttons are working and behave correctly. I assume this is all connected in the start up chain.
3.The CDJ will not eat a cd. A slight tap here seems to move it along to another mode where it can.
It appears to me that the unit is not starting up all the way and there is something broken impeding that start up.
Anybody got any ideas?
This youtube video is exactly what is going on with mine except my start button has no power.
