JTV-59 not working
by jbotofte on 2012-09-05 05:41:17.8720

Suddenly my JTV-59 (non-US model) stopped working the other day. The battery is full, the battery charger flashing correctly, but I don't see any green lights anymore on the guitar and cannot turn on the modelling. Just a few weeks ago before going on holiday, it worked fine. I guess I have to take it to my dealer, but any suggestions why this would suddenly happen. I have only had the guitar for a year. I also tried to connect it with the variax workbench but I don't get any green light from the guitar though that always worked fine in the past.

the warranty is a year, so hopefully you can squeak that in... or maybe ask nicely...">">

have you tried any other means of powering the guitar? using a pod or XPS box?

No, unfortunately.

Does anyone know how the battery charger reacts to a defunct battery? would it flash as if it were fully charged or just show a constant red light?

This just happened to my guitar, JTV 69 US.  Did you resolve this?
