Hi guys,

 

Have a JTV-59.

Upgraded to the latest firmware and tried it out.

My gibson (Lester-1) doesn't sound so good as I had hoped. Some sound from an old telephone (o;

Think I have to tweak my POD hD500 a little.

 

Have a gig in a few days so I went back to the older firmware. Need some time to tweak which I don't have the coming days..

Guess what.... now my guitar selector switch doesn't switch to the magnetic pups anymore. Strange.....

 

Plug in a normal guitar cable and magnetic pups work but cannot switch to the virtual models (have a full battery). So it is or the magnetic or the virtual..... I use both and now I cannot

 

Thought it was the roll back to the old firmware so I did an upgrade tot the latest firmware again. Hoping that the switch is going to work again.

Nope....

 

Now I have an iupgrade which I don't like at this moment and a switch which is malfunctioning

 

My friend is always saying: if it works and you are satisfied, don't upgrade. Wish I had listened to him

 

Someone any ideas or having a simular problem?

Have you checked the well-known problem of the knob going too far down the switch? Take the knob off (or at least raise it) and see if the switch works then.

unfortunately, this is by (bad) design.

 

people have resorted to putting a piece of carboard/paper/plastic under the knob, at the top of the shaft. This fixes the problem.
