JTV69 turns off
by soundchaser on 2012-12-09 05:26:46.1870

Having a problem with JTV shut off.  My setup is JTV69/HD500.  At times, after I edit patches manually and I switch to another patch, the Variax shuts off; no lights on guitar, no sound at all.  No response when I change from patch to patch on the HD500.  The only thing that gets me out of this is by unplugging the VDI cable and pluggin it back in.  I dont know if this means anything, but I dont use the battery at all, as I always plug in via the VDI.

First thing I'd try is a regular CAT 5 Ethernet cable to rule out a problem with your VDI cable. Just be careful plugging and unplugging the ends as it won't have the protective sleeve.

I also use JTV69 without battery, but I haven't crossed this problem, yet. Did this problem started after you did some firmware update (JTV or HD500)? If so, I would try to reinstall latest firmwares for both units.

No, pretty much from the start
