    Default Unresponsive jog wheel

    Hey all, iv owned my vci 100 for around 6 months now but iv noticed that the left jog wheel is becoming less and less responsive. for example if i were to spin it backwards, the track in deck A would only move a bar or two. has anybody got any ideas to what maybe the problem? to my knowledge there have been no spillages so im guessing its not water damage. Any help or tips wold be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Phil

    Not sure if it's what you need, but here's a good walk through on how to fix a stiff jogwheel.

    my jog wheel sticks a lot. like if i touch it the light will stay red even when i take my hand off it. it makes it hard to beat match at all. does this tutorial help with that too?

    Before opening the unit, just make sure the touch sensitivity (there is a knob for each platter on the back of the VCI) is adjusted properly. How I have mine is that it takes a conscious touch to make contact, so that if I graze it or just get real close that it does not change the switch state (go from blue to red). These can go out of adjustment if the humidity changes dramatically or if the wheel is dirty.

    so if it stays at red without me touching it should i turn it more towards the max or min side if i want it to be less sensitive?
