    Default i have a little problem

    hello fourms!! ean is the man and has influenced me to purchse the vestax and i have used this site for various tools and information... so THANKS!!

    i have a vestax vci 100... i am tentatively planning on doing the black and led mod, but right now i got a few buttons that are very stickey from a cola spill. Also she (the controller) fell and one of the jog wheels got real tight... so i am going to try the DIY mod on djtechtools.com and see if that helps, but was wondering if you all had any suggestions to clearing up the stickyness before i go aBOUT taking apart this beast.


    sorry to post my first post of a PLEASE HELP ME... but i have exhausted other reasources and found nothing besides using a silicon based lubricant.


    thanks soo much

    Welcome,
    I would try using loads of Isopropyl Alcohol and a fine brush to wash the coke residue away. That should sort it out.

    step 1: dont spill stuff on it
    step 2: dont drop it..
