stugatzo posted a topic in James Tyler Variax Guitars / Workbench HDHi interwebs. Weird issue with my JTV-69. With the battery charged (the green indicator lights confirm it is), when i plug in a standard guitar cable, the models do not function. The passive pickups are fine but when I try to engage the models...nothing. If I plug in the VDI cable through my HD500, they engage and work fine and I can toggle between models and passive pickups. So with VDI still connected, I tried plugging in the 1/4 inch cable at the same time and then unplug the VDI and presto...the models stay working and functioning. So basically, in order to get the models mode working, I need to give it a boost by plugging into the POD via the VDI. The battery is fine as I swapped it into my JYV-59 and the models worked as they are supposed to with just a 1/4 inch plugged in. Anyone experienced this? Any fixes? Thanks!
Hi Im from Sweden so please excuse my bad grammar and poor vocabulary. I have a Line6 Variax 300, and it have begun developing some annoying issues. First of all : DROPOUTS _Regardless_ if i use the external powersupply or if i use the internal batteries (it happends no matter what). It have some problems with sound-dropouts. Not unlike the sound you get if you turn off an tube amp while playing. It get quieter and start to distort the sound and eventually becomes silent. Sometimes i can reverse the process by pushing the "bank selector" or just by tapping the pickguard around the "bank selector". But most of the time i have to pull out the cable and put it in again. The guitar starts up and may be playable for another 30s to 3h after that. Do you know how to correct this ? Is it the electronics thats failing or the output-jack? Oxidation? ?!?! Second: Changes the soundbank randomly. Sometimes while im playing, it starts shifting soundbank / settings. Most often is it while im using the "tele or strat"-banks or the "Acousting or Resonator"-banks. To solve this ive used the same solution as above, pulling the cord and puting it in again. Any real solutions for this issue? I really like the instrument both for the sounds and the feeling it gives me while playing it... so i really want to solve these issues.
