JTV-69 Standard Tuning dropped 1/2 tone


Recommended Posts

Dropped D stays the same as the new Standard, 1/2 down goes another half down , 1 down seems go another 1/2 down and the rest seem ok

 

Haven't touched a thing since the last firmware updated to 2.21 months ago, haven't connected to HD workbench and haven't added any customer of virtual capos from the guitar recently.

 

Any ideas?

 

I've now connected and rolled back the firmware from monkey (same problems which seems weird), updated back to 2.21 and then reinstalled 2.21 no changes to the symptoms above.

So after a few re-installs and reflashes I've got Standard tuning to Dropped D and Dropped D is Dropped Bb, 1/2 down doesn't appear to change anything now.   It would appear looking back at history others have had simliar issues in the past that cleared up!.  The tone on the modelling sounds pretty poor so there's something else going on.

 

Anyway my best theory is that the rotor switch for the alt-tuning is not working consistently for the first few tunings. 

 

Does any one know what a Green LED means on this switch?

If it's a new guitar, it's a lemon. I'd send it back and get one that works. You've already re-flashed the firmware several times, and the LEDs are turning up funny colors. There's obviously more than one issue with the electronics. Doesn't sound like this is something you're gonna sort out on your own, unfortunately.

Thanks guys unfortunately it's not new and out of warranty, I've had it 21+ months.  I've got no service centres near me at all and shipping guitars with couriers just adds to the risk of other s**t happening!

 

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh

I had tuning issues with my 59 , all came down to the fact I tune to Eb and the guitar was misinterpreting the note being played to what it thought it would be in standard tuning ( someone did explain it technically but that's what I got from it) . Once I tuned to standard the tuning knob and the virtual capo function worked perfectly . As long as you are tuned standard then it does sound like the guitar is faulty

,,, the virtual capo function worked perfectly....

 

Is the virual capo function working with fw 2.21 as described in those old  Line 6 vids?

I always implement alt tunings via hd500, so i was wondering if this function is still available as a standalone option on the hd fw.
