Guitar Model Selector not working


Recommended Posts

Hi

I just bought used guitar that appeared in good condition.

the problem is that when i press the guitar model selector nothing happens.

 

the guitar is being recognized by the workbench HD

andi'm able to download or upload presets or play the magnetic pickups.

 

the battery is charged.

 

any idea what am i missing here?

 

thanks

Does the model knob light up when you push it?

 

If not, gently pull it off the guitar, fold the tiniest of paper 3-4 times and insert it inside the knob, then refit back on the guitar.

 

several JTV guitars that I tried all had the same problem... bad knob manufacturing or too short switch stem.

 

Mine has been working flawlessly, since the mod.  Hope this helps you.

I hate to admit that it helped me. I've been fighting that switch for months. When I took the control off, it worked every time. When I stuffed paper down the hole, it works every time. Good for you, bad for Line6 QC.

I don't understand how Line 6 doesn't resolve these issues, unless it's an older JTV you picked up.

Between this, the model knob cap falling off, and checking if piezos are working properly, it should be a simple QC procedure.
