JVT 69 digital modeling problems..
by Dany75 on 2013-02-14 15:42:19

Hello everyone,

I have a new JTV 69 guitar, after 2 times of playing, finished digital modeling knob to operate.
completely dead.

The battery is fully charged and everything else looks OK ..
Anyone have any tips?

/ Thanks ...

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "..finished digital modeling knob...".  One common problem with the JTV-69 (and I cannot believe this hasn't been addressed yet) is that the model select knob does not quite push the control shaft in far enough to switch between magnetic and modeling modes.  Quick fix is to pull the knob off and drop a small bit of cardboard in the hole to shim it up and allow more travel when it's pressed back on.

Whats the serial number? 

I know i'm stuck on the serial number....curious if there is a tie between problems and certain serial number ranges.

Sorry bad english formulation, it is exactly the same problem as you describe.." the model select knob does not quite push the control shaft in far enough to switch between magnetic and modeling modes"..

Thanks so much for the reply ... I will try your suggestion...
