FEATURES
Designed for professional use by DJs, the CDJ-400 compact
disc player provides all the functions and performance re-
quired in disco clubs while offering performance, sound qua-
lity and functionality superior to analog players.
SCRATCH JOG EFFECT
Equipped with Scratch Jog Effect for new scratch sounds.
Equipped with three buttons [BUBBLE], [TRANS] and [WAH]
for new scratch sounds. Effects that are different from the nor-
mal scratch sound can be obtained, broadening the possibili-
ties of your DJ play.
DIGITAL JOG BREAK
Equipped with Digital Jog Break for original sound effects.
Individual remix assist functions [JET], [ROLL] and [WAH]
have been provided individually in three buttons. By choosing
a function and operating the jog dial in time with the music, a
new remix world can be experienced.
JOG DIAL
The large 115 mm diameter jog dial enables better handling
than an analog turntable.
■ PITCH BEND
This function changes the music tempo depending on the di-
rection and speed the jog dial is rotated.
■ SCRATCH PLAY
In the VINYL mode when the surface of the jog dial is pressed
playback is discontinued and then continues according to the
direction and speed the dial is rotated.
■ FRAME SEARCH
Moves the pause position in frame units (1/75 sec) when the
jog dial is rotated in the pause mode.
■ SUPER-FAST SEARCH
By turning the jog dial while holding down the manual search
button or the track search button, disc search can be per-
formed faster than normal search or track search functions.
TEMPO CONTROL
100 mm long high-precision slider allowing free speed adjust-
ment.
With a digital display calibrated in 0.02 % units (within a ±6 %
range), tempo adjustments can be made more easily and ac-
curately.
■ TEMPO CONTROL RANGE
The maximum variable range can be set to four variable
ranges; ±6 %, ±10 %, ±16 %, WIDE, to provide easier operation
environment.
■ MASTER TEMPO
Maintains the same pitch of sound while changing the music
tempo.
REVERSE PLAY
When the reverse button (DIRECTION REV) is pressed so that
the button’s indicator lamp lights, play is performed in the re-
verse direction.
CUE
■ BACK CUE
After storing cue points in memory, press the CUE button
while playing a track to return and start from the stored cue
point.
■ AUTO CUE
Skips the non-recorded part at the top of a track and automati-
cally enters stand-by mode at the track’s starting point, allow-
ing playback to begin instantly when the PLAY/PAUSE button
(6) is pressed.
■ CUE POINT SAMPLER
Playback can be started at one touch from a stored cue point,
convenient for confirming start points and as sampler.
CUE/LOOP MEMORY
This player is equipped with an internal memory that permits
the recording of cue point or loop point; the recorded points
can later be recalled as desired.
REAL TIME SEAMLESS LOOP
This function simplifies the setting and canceling of loops.
The loop can be set at the very instant the track is being
played. By setting a loop just before the end of the track, the
track can be made so that it doesn’t stop. In addition, an
ADJUST mode has been added to enable one-touch adjust-
ments to the loop-out point, thereby facilitating the loop op-
eration.
RELOOP
Allows returning to the set loop position any number of times.
Press the RELOOP/EXIT button after canceling loop play to
return to the loop start position. By using the loop ON and OFF
combined with the rhythm of the track, new sound effects can
be created.
BEAT LOOP/LOOP DIVIDE
Automatically sets a loop-out point according to the track’s
BPM and starts loop-play. Each additional time the button is
pressed, the loop is divided and a new rhythm produced.
PLAYING ADDRESS
The bar graph provides a visual reference of the track play-
back progress that enables the user to visualize the current
playback position, in the same way as is done with an analog
record by checking the position of the needle. The current po-
sition can be confirmed by the length of the graph, and in ad-
dition, the graph flashes to notify the ending of the track.
FADER START
When a Pioneer DJ mixer (sold separately) is connected, the
mixer’s fader operation can be used to perform quick start
and back cue.
RELAY PLAY
Two CDJ-400 units can be connected in tandem to perform
automatic relay play.
When track playback stops on one of the players, the standby
mode of the other player is released and playback begins au-
tomatically.

÷ The following marks and logos are displayed on disc la-
bels, packaging, or jackets.
Types and Logos of playable discs
CD CD-TEXT (Note 1)
CD-R (Note 2)
CD-RW (Note 2)
Note 1) Regarding TEXT display:
The number of characters that can be displayed is up to 48.
When a display exceeds eight characters in length, the display
will scroll. Only alpha-numerics and a limited number of
symbols can be displayed (☞ P.12).
Note 2) CD-R/CD-RW discs:
This player supports playback of CD-R/CD-RW discs recorded
in audio CD format or MP3.
* For details, consult the Operating Instructions for your re-
corder.
Notes:
¶ Some CD-R/CD-RW discs recorded on standalone record-
ers or computer drives may not be playable back on this
player, due to a variety of reasons, including disc character-
istics, scratches, dirt, player lens dirt or condensation, etc.
¶ Some discs recorded on computer drives may not be
playable on this player, depending on the recording appli-
cation used, its settings, and operating environment. Be
sure to use the correct formatting for the discs used. For
details, consult the application author.
¶ This unit cannot play partially recorded CD-R or CD-RW
discs that have not been finalized.
¶ For detailed information regarding the handling of CD-R/
CD-RW discs, consult the handling precautions supplied
with each disc.
■ Regarding CD-R/RW discs
Due to the unique construction of CD-R/RW discs, leaving
them for extended periods of time in the pause (or cue
standby) mode at a single point may result in the discs’ be-
coming difficult to play at that place. The same symptom may
also occur if the loop function is used to play back a single
point on the disc excessively.
As a result, users are advised to construct backup archive
discs when playing discs containing important data.
■ About DualDisc playback
This product is designed to conform to standards for music
CDs. No warranty is made for operation or performance when
used with discs not conforming to such music CD standards.
Playing MP3 files
MP3 files may be found in two formats: Constant Bit Rate (CBR) and Variable Bit Rate (VBR). This component supports playback
and DJ play with both CBR and VBR type MP3 files, but in comparison with CBR files, files recorded in VBR format will experience
slower search and super-fast search speeds. As a result, when operating speed is most important, the use of the CBR recording
format is recommended for MP3 files.
MP3 files must follow the format requirements listed below.
MP3 format MPEG-1

CAUTIONS REGARDING HANDLING
Location
Install the player in a well-ventilated location where it will not be
exposed to high temperatures or humidity.
Do not install the player in a location which is exposed to direct sun-
light, or near stoves or radiators. Excessive heat can adversely affect
the cabinet and internal components. Installation of the player in a
damp or dusty environment may aiso result in a malfunction and can
be hazardous. Avoid installation near cookers etc., where the player
may be exposed to oily smoke, steam or heat.
Installation Guidelines
÷ Placing and using the compact disc player for long periods on
heat-generating sources such as amplifiers or near spotlights, etc.
will affect product performance. Avoid placing the player on heat-
generating sources.
÷ Install this compact disc player as far as possible away from tuners
and TV sets. A compact disc player installed in close proximity to
such equipment may cause noise or degradation of the picture.
÷ Noise may be noticeable when an indoor antenna is used. In such
cases, make use of an outdoor antenna or turn off power to the
compact disc player.
÷ When the unit is used in a loud-sound environment, e.g., near a
speaker, sound skip may occur. Install the unit away from the
speaker or reduce the listening vol-
ume.
÷ Place this unit on a level surface
and a stable platform.
÷ Be sure the player, including its au-
dio and power supply cords, does
not touch vibrating materials. Any
cause of vibration other than the in-
sulators may cause the disc to skip.
Take special care when using the
player while it is installed in a carry-
ing case.
¶ Please be sure to leave
a space to allow for
heat radiation.
Do not place on or
against vibrating
materials!
Cleaning the Player
To clean the PLAYER wipe with a polishing or a soft, dry cloth. For
stubborn dirt, moisten a soft cloth with a weak solution of neutral
detergent (diluted in five to six parts water), wring the cloth well, and
wipe away the dirt. Use a dry cloth to wipe the surface dry. Do not use
volatile liquids such as benzene or thinner which will damage the
unit.
CD Lens Cleaner
The player’s pickup lens should not become dirty in normal use. If for
some reason, the lens becomes soiled and malfunctions, contact
your nearest PIONEER authorized service center. Lens cleaners for
CD players are commercially available, but special care should be
exercised in their use as some may cause damage to the lens.
Storing Discs
÷ Discs are made of the same kinds of plastic used for conventional
analog audio records. Be careful not to allow discs to warp. Al-
ways store discs in their cases vertically, avoiding locations with
high heat, humidity, or extremely low temperatures. Avoid leav-
ing discs in cars; the interior of a car in direct sunlight can become
extremely hot.
÷ Always read and abide by the precautionary notes listed on disc
labels.
Condensation
When this unit is brought into a warm room from previously cold
surroundings or when the room temperature rises sharply, conden-
sation may form inside the unit and impair its performance. In such
cases, allow the unit to stand for about an hour or raise the room
temperature gradually.
Cleaning and Handling Compact Discs
÷ The presence of fingerprints or smudges on the surface of the disc
will not directly affect the recorded signals, but, depending on the
degree of contamination, the brightness of the light reflected from
the signal surfaces may be reduced causing degradation of sound
quality. Always keep your discs clean by wiping them gently with
a soft cloth from the inner edge toward the outer edge.
÷ If a disc becomes very dirty, dampen a soft cloth with water, (be
sure to wring it out well) and wipe the away dirt gently. Remove
any water drops with another soft, dry cloth.
÷ Do not use record cleaning sprays or anti-static agents on discs.
Never clean discs with benzene, thinner, or other volatile solvents
or damage to the disc surface may result.
÷ With this player, use only those discs
which display the mark shown right
(Optical audio digital discs).
÷ SACD hybrid discs cannot be played.
÷ When holding discs, do not touch their signal surfaces. Hold by
the edges, or by one edge and the center hole.
÷ Do not affix gummed labels or tape to the disc surface. Also, do
not scratch or damage the label.
÷ Discs rotate at high speeds inside the player. Do not use damaged,
cracked or warped discs.
Do not play a CD with a special shape
Do not play a CD having other shape than a circular disc, such as
heart shaped disc. Otherwise malfunction may occur.

DISC LOADING/UNLOADING
Label surface up
Insert straight
1. Set the rear-panel POWER switch to ON.
Do not force a disc into the unit when the POWER switch
is set to OFF as this may damage the disc and the unit.
2. Insert a disc.
÷ Hold the disc with label surface upwards, and insert into
the front panel disc loading slot.
÷ Only one disc can be loaded at a time. Never attempt to
load more than one disc at the same time, or attempt to
load a second disc when one disc has already been
loaded.
÷ When loading a disc, do not placing any twisting force
on the disc, or try to force the disc into the slot. Also, do
not attempt to interrupt or defeat the motion of the disc
when the player begins to draw a disc into the slot or to
eject a disc, since damage to the disc or player could
occur.
3. Press the EJECT button to remove the disc.
÷ When the EJECT button is pressed, disc rotation stops
and the disc is ejected from the loading slot.
÷ If the disc cannot be ejected with the EJECT button, in-
sert a pin in the forced ejection hole on the front panel of
the player.
7 Canceling eject command
In the event the EJECT button is pressed by mistake, if the
PLAY/PAUSE (6) button is pressed immediately (before
[EJECT] is displayed), the eject command will be canceled
and playback will restart from the place immediately
before the EJECT button was pressed (during this time,
sound output will be temporarily interrupted).
CAUTION:
Do not attempt to press a disc back into the slot when
the [EJECT] indicator appears. Pressing a disc back into
the slot while the [EJECT] indicator appears may cause
the player to stop. In this case, press the EJECT button
again and wait until the [EJECT] indicator goes out be-
fore reinserting the disc.
Forced disc ejection
If the EJECT button (0) does not function or the disc can-
not be removed, pushing the pin provided into the
forced ejection hole on the front panel will enable the
disc to be removed.
When performing forced ejection, be sure to follow the
precautions below.
1 Be sure to turn OFF the power of the CD player, and
check that the disc has stopped rotating. It takes
about 60 seconds for the disc to stop rotating after the
power has been turned OFF.
If forced ejection is performed while the disc is rotating;
÷ As the disc will be ejected outside the CD player rotat-
ing, it may hit your finger and cause injuries.
÷ As the disc will be rotating with the clamp unstable, it
may be scratched.
For the above reasons, never attempt to eject the disc
forcibly while it is rotating.
2 Always use the pin provided (Do not use other objects).
The provided pin is found in a groove in the bottom sur-
face of the player.
When the provided forced eject pin is inserted fully into
the forced eject hole on the front panel, the loaded disc
is ejected about 5 mm to 10 mm from the loading slot,
making it possible to remove it by hand.
