JTV VARIAX MODELS AND ALT TUNING DO NOT FUNCTION. ANY SUGGESTIONS.
by klindt on 2012-02-12 16:26:58

I received delivery of my JYV Variax and was ready to fire it up. However, the models and the alt tuning do not function. I charged and re-charged the battery. Four LED lights indicate the battery is fully charged. The cable to the amp is connected to the guitar--which through this forum I learned was a requirement for the guitar to function properly. The standard pictures operate fine and sound great. But the model knob does not light up. I don't know if the alt tuning dial lights up. But neither of them function. I do not know what else to try. There is no trouble shooting section in the manuel. I really don't want to fool with the electronics. Am I missing something really small that will make the guitar work?

Any suggestions? Thank you

The standard "pickups" work fine--thank you auto correct!

At least one user found that his model select knob was bottoming out too soon so that the switching function was not fully engaged.  You might check for this.

Have you updated your Variax to the latest firmware? Even if it shows the latest version installed I would reinstall - your firmware may simply be corrupt.

If you are still experiencing this problem, and removing the MODEL SELECT knob, then, pressing on shaft of that knob does not turn the modeling features on, re-installing/updating the flash memory on the guitar would be the next best thing to try if you have not done so:
