Left jog wheel on CDN *88 remote controller not working
The left jog wheel on the controller (remote) is not working which means that I cannot use the special effects/search/change tempo with the wheel for that channel. Does anyone have a technical manual as I'm gon try and prise the unit open so that I can try and fix the wheel myself? the unit is over 4 years old and the retailer i bought it from will not fix it!

I don't have a technical manual for this unit, but I have worked on these before. They are fairly easy to dismantle, take care to apply even pressure when removing the jog wheel, use something like a butter knife (2 off) to slide under opposing sides of the wheel and gently prise up. Spare parts for this unit are available directly from Numark, however you can source them from elsewhere. you'll probably need to replace the transducer.

One or more of the bearing wheels have become damaged underneath the jog wheel. You need to strip the unit down and remove the wheel to get access to find the broken / stuck wheels. Replace, or re-seat, and you should be back up and running. The jog wheel is a lot simpler than it looks, once you have it out. Just be careful of the sheet switch, which detects pressure on the wheel. They're very fragile and vulnerable!
I had the exact same problem. I was working a party when some drunk ******* spilled some beer in my coffin case, thus getting into the jog wheel and cue button. I continued to work with it for a few months but got pretty fed up and brought it to a pio dealer. They fixed it up quick and cheap, now it glides like my other mk3s. I'd say bring it in a get a quick quote.
The problem is the play button itself. The controller has to be disassembled and the TAC switch needs to be replaced. Would not recommend you do it yourself unless you are good with a soldering iron. It is easy to damage the circuit board with excessive heat or if you are not very gentle removong the existing switch.
Sounds to me like your platter on the jog wheel is stuck in the engaged position. You have to open up your unit and take apart the jog wheel. In there you will find some spring things (don't quite remember what they look like at the moment or where exactly in the jog wheel they are) and you have to strech them back out so that when your hand isn't on the wheel it will spring it back up. Either that or the switch is busted and if that is the case you have to replace the switch.
