JTV-59 Battery
by Harold on 2012-12-09 07:52:38

Have had this guitar a few weeks and love it. Problem last night checked battery when I was done practicing

and 3 lights were lit up when I checked it. This morning checked it before I started playing it and battery was

down to one green light. No chord was pluged in jack. Any ideas why it would drain. First time its done this.

Is it recharging properly, and still giving several hours of playing time? Unless you experience an actual problem with recharging and playing time I wouldn't worry too much about the light indicators.

There may not be an actual problem here. The light indicators may not be a perfectly linear representation of charge remaining. In other words, the length of time the indicator remains in the 2-light position may simply be shorter than the time it shows the 3-light or 1-light position. And since the battery still drains some even when there is no cord, the overnight drainage may simply have moved through the 2-light position normally.

I'll keep an eye on it it did stay on 3 lights for several hours. Plan on getting a second battery though
