I have just recieved my JTV-59, an ebay purchase and I love it. But no output from the magnetic pickups. I have tried changing cables, but the fact that I engage the variax and i works is a little unsettling. I opened her up  but cant see anything loose ect and got kinda scared b the amount of cables.



Any thoughts???

Thanks in advance.

The Mags go through a relay and they should work with no battery in the JTV.  You should be able to trace it and fix it.

Connect ur JTV 1/4" output 2 ur amp 1/4" input.

Open up JTV + amp volume.

Shut down modelling.

Now if you strum the guitar u should hear "her"  thru ur amp.

If not, check the cable.

Are you using a VDI cable into a HD500? If so, it could be that input selection for the HD500 patch you are using is set to the the Variax models only.
