    Default wobble jog wheel

    hey has any one else got a jog wheel that wobbles up and down or side to side when pressure is applied to one edge of jog i have just noticed it on my vci (ardace edition).

    noticed it while i was waiting for my set always wondered why scratching on one side of my Vci felt very odd

    Are the three screws on the top of the jog plate tight? They might have come loose in transport.

    I had the same problem with my standard VCI-100 that I bought used off ebay.. turned out the reason for the wobble was a missing plastic piece in the back of the jog wheel. Check out this thread to see what I've done to fix it: http://www.djtechtools.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10405

    Hope that helps

    Default Opps!! I'm Screwed

    A drunk chick spilt a beer on my VCI 100, the left jog wheel stop jogging. I took it apart and sprayed with Electric circuit cleaner. its showing data when I engage and spin it back and forth, but doesn't show data on Tractor pro. I did not take the board of and flip it over and clean it. Any idea's on how to get my jog wheel working (only the press down works). Please Help

    i had the same problem with a wobbly job wheel. i literally took the fricken thing apart straight down to its core. about 50 screws later i found that the little brass pin (the same on that you screw the plastic jog on) was a little stripped. this made it so the jog was able to slide up and down the pin and wobble while i tried to spin.
    so the only way was that i took to to american music and sound and the had to order a whole new jog unit. i took it there today and they said it should take about 2 weeks and over $60. that is really a setback for me if i decide to ever buy a vestax again
