  1. Hi, I've bought a used JTV-69 and some weeks later I realised that not having the special usb cable/workbench interface is actually a problem.. anyway.. I was charging the battery with the original charger and now I lost it. I have plenty of Sony NP-F batteries (which I know will not work with the JTV) but my question is if I can use the generic charger to charge the Variax battery? Thanks in advance!
  2. I try to charge my battery with the charger included with my Variax, but no light comes on (on the charger). I tested the charger with a multitester, and it appears to have voltage at the contacts. The battery also appears to have full voltage when testing with a multitester, but when I put it in the guitar, the lights flash, then it dies. If I get a light when I press the test button, it's only one and it goes out immediately. I'm considering getting the cable power kit, but if it's just the charger, I'd rather get that. Up until this issue, the battery had been charging properly and working in the guitar. I only discovered this after I had not used the guitar or battery for over 6 months. Our local VFW has jam sessions half the year, and that's the only time I use the modeling in my Variax Standard. Thanks in advance for any help!
  3. I bought a Variax Standard a couple of weeks ago. Within 24 hours it developed a "white noise" problem when in Variax mode, which I reported on this forum. I returned it to the online supplier, and they quickly replaced it without quibble. The new guitar seems fine (so far) but there may be an issue with the battery and/or charger. The indicators on the charger and guitar do not seem to correspond with the manual. The charger instructions say that it will flash red once when first connected to power, steady red when charging, and flashing red when fully charged. When the replacement guitar arrived I immediately put the battery on charge. It was still steady red after an overnight charge of around 16 hours - no flashing full charge indicator. I tried the battery in the guitar but only got 1 flashing green light, indicating minimal charge. I put the battery back in the charge cradle, and immediately got flashing red indicating a full charge, but still only minimal charge detected by the guitar. Now I find that I get a steady red light on the charging cradle when it is connected to the mains WITHOUT the battery inserted. If I disconnect the power and reconnect it, I get various red flashes for a minute or so, then it goes back to steady red. If I insert the battery again, it just stays steady red, even though the battery has had over 16 hours charging. Battery faulty? Charger faulty? Or both? I am very happy with my Helix, but I am beginning to lose my faith in Line 6 with my experience of the Variax. Two brand new guitars with problems is a bit much.
  4. Apologies for a dumb question, and yes, I did a search in the forum but can't quite find the answer I need. I've had my JTV 69 for about 3 years, haven't used it much (acoustic player, can't quite get my head around electric-but I have played on some videos I've shot and produced for non-profits) - recently got a Helix in the hope of using the two together to do some interesting things. So, I had some time over the holiday to play, went to power up my Variax, and the batteries wouldn't seem to take a charge. Ok, probably dead batteries? So I ordered a couple more batteries from Sweetwater, and the same thing. The charger just flashes its red light once a second or so. I've left them on the charger all night and no difference. And yes, I have made sure the batteries are seated well in the charger. I was trying to power up the guitar to use Workbench and to make sure I had the most up-to-date firmware for the guitar. How does the charger behave when it's charging/done charging? Is there a difference in the light pattern? I'm thinking I blew the charger - it was just left plugged in, probably since I bought it. Thanks! Larry
  5. I think I accidentally threw away the paper that came with my JTV59 about the charger. I went to charge my battery last night and wasn't sure if it was charged this morning or not. I figured the light would turn green when charged. It was blinking when it had been on steady last night. How do I know that the battery is fully charged with this charger? Thanks. Just got my JTV59 last week and this is the first time I have charged the battery.
  6. The repair shop lost the AC adapter for my JTV-69 battery charger! (In addition to only fixing the modeling section and not the magnetic pickup problems). Anyhow, does anyone know or can you put a multi-meter on the output of the AC adapter that plugs into the battery charging cradle and tell me the voltage, polarity and estimated current draw? Thanks!
