Hey, allâ€” I love my new JTV59, and use it for almost all of my gigs. However, last night I played an outdoor gig where the heat index was about 104F, and the modeling wouldn't even turn on. I had charged the battery just prior to the gig, and checked it before I left the house (full charge). When I say "the modeling wouldn't turn on", I mean I got exactly the same results that I would get as if the battery was dead or not in the chamber. I checked the battery level indicator, and it briefly flashed 3 LEDs, but it went off a lot quicker than it usually does. Generally speaking, those LEDs stay on for about two seconds, and last night they only stayed on for about a half second. I pulled and reseated the battery four times, but no change. Got through the gig just fine with the mag pups, but I missed having the alternate tuning functions :( Took it home, plugged it in this morning to check it, and everything works just fine today. So it's either the battery doesn't function when it's too warm, or the electronics fail when it's too warm. Any ideas?
