    I need some help please….

    i’ve just tried to fix a wobbly platter and now after i’ve put it back together the right hand platter is not sending midi data (other than data to say the platter is being touched)

    So now i cannot move the track forward or backward or pitch bend with it.

    Has anybody else had this problem and managed to sort it out? i’ve had it apart a few times now to look at it and still no joy….

    i hope i haven’t just broken my vci!!

    any help will be greatly appreciated.

    thanks.

      I didn’t opened mine but I’m having the same issue with the right hand platter… it lights up the led right when I touch it but I can’t move forward or backwards!! Does anybody has experienced this?

    Thanks in advance!

    No, but I have heard of at least one person contacting Vestax directly and getting a replacement.

    Great vid… I’ve actually done this on my VCI-300 to fix a wobble. Worked like a charm…

    …I wish you used the tin to bake cupcakes though…

    I’m not real sure. My best guess is to improve the sensitivity of the jog wheels. Or possibly to put upwards pressure on the metal plate to keep it from loosening. I’ve seen people mention needing to tighten the three screws, something I’ve never needed to do.

    Do you have the holes for the springs? You can try and get in touch with Vestax through their website and see if they can help you out. You also might be able to take one of the screws to a hardware store and get one to match. Same with the spring, but it won’t be an exact match.

  • vangelis

    i also don’t have any spring and i thought that i accidentaly lost them.
    when i had the same problem i used silicon lubricant and then i had no problems.

    Sorry guys that should have been in the description. Springs were just added in the last several months so some people may not have them.

    Great, helpful video. Definitely notice a good number of VCIs have this problem.

    Last time was the fader, this is a completely new video… thanks photojojo!

  • djelevation

    This is a recycled article, but helpful. I was having super erratic line fader issues in Traktor and cleaning them worked like a charm.

    I did this cleaning on my VCI 300 as well before I sold it and it worked quite well.
