    Default Strange VCI 100 SE platter issue

    Ahoy all,

    Thought I'd best ask here first before getting into a flap.

    The left hand platter on my VCI 100 SE has stopped responding to and movement - it'll still stop a track when touched but moving it doesn't do anything.

    I don't mess around with the mapping file that's provided by DJTechtools, and I've not done anything that I can think of to cause this behaviour. I've opened the case in the past to put in a Pro X Fade and to upgrade to FW1.4, but everything worked perfectly well after these operations.

    Suggestions for a fix?

    Have you checked the screws on the back of your vci? Maybe your sensitivity of the jogs is to low.

    you can also test the harware itself in the vci LED test mode.

    I think you press deck B echo and play buttons while turning the unit on (might be the wrong button combo), then hit all the buttons as the LEDs light up in order. It's a bit tedious, but once you've done every button you enter fader test mode where the bottom 8 LEDs indicate the position of the faders, starting with the x fader.

    Again this is just from memory, but I think if you press the deck A slice button quite a few times to cycle through all the faders you'll eventually get to the jog wheel test mode (it's the very last one so thankfully you can't miss it by pressing the button too many times). The bottom 8 LEDs now light up in sequence as you move the jog wheels, one colour for each wheel.

    It's pretty fun actually

    That's just the touch sensitivity. Shouldn't affect rotary motion detection.

    Did you know that there's a factory test mode hidden in every VCI ? It's used in the factory to test all the buttons, faders, knobs and LEDs.

    With 1.4 firmware: While your VCI is off, hold RIGHT ECHO+PLAY buttons (VCI-100SE mapping) and turn it on.

    With previous firmwares: While your VCI is off, hold LEFT ECHO+PLAY buttons (VCI-100SE mapping) and turn it on.

    After you get into test mode you'll see left deck slice is lit. Press it and echo lights up keep pressing and the next button lights up. Go through the series you'll get to faders starting with the cross fader. As you move it all of the bottom buttons will light up as you move the fader back and forth. The rest of the faders and knobs go in this order:

    left volume fader
    Right volume fader
    left pitch fader
    Left EQ high
    Left EQ mid
    Left EQ Low
    Left Filter
    eft gain
    Mix Level
    Right gain
    Level
    Right EQ high
    Right EQ mid
    Right EQ lo
    Right filter
    A knob
    B knob
    C knob
    D knob
    Right pitch fader
    Volume
    Glitch
    Len

    I can't figure out the next bit. It seems you press a few lit buttons and then you get to the jog wheels. I don't see what your testing between len and when you get to the jog wheels. When your done just turn it off and back on again.
