1......Use new dial cord, old dial cord becomes brittle and glazed over the years.

2....the tuning knob shaft should have 2 or 3 turns of the dial cord wrapped around it.

3....the tuning knob shaft should be clean.

4...if there are any small pulleys that the dial cord rides on for smooth operation, they should be clean and free turning.

The biggest things ( as you might have guessed ) are that everything that has the dial cord running over it should be clean and free to turn if necessary.

The little spring is there to keep tension on the cord, otherwise it would loosen once it streches with age.

If you need dial cord, I believe Sony still has some. You may need to contact the Sony parts distributor for your country, but I firmly believe that it is still available.

Good luck......Rob

Hi aline1929


This is an early synthesised tuner built in the early 80's. In saying that, it is still a revered receiver for performance and sonics. It will have a fault in the in the divider stages of the freguency synthesis circuit that will need a tech to have a look at for you. Frequency synthesis faults can be difficult to repair if you do not have previous experience. Where abouts in the world are you and I will try to steer you to someone that can help you to repair the problem.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

Try extending the antenna to a new location or using a better quality antenna. If that does not work then you will need to replace the chip inside that controls the digital tuning. After a few years these are known to fail. Click on the link below to read more:

How do i adjust intonation on a peavey predator plus exp?


To adjust the intonation on a guitar you need the following. ..
a electronic tuner
and a small philip screwdriver

when you tune a string say low E you play the note open and adjust tell it's in tune
then to intonate play the low E at the 12th fret
producing a Harmonic, view the tuner it will be sharp or flat,
turn the small philip screw on the bridge adjustment
it only takes a small turn one way or the other so go slow
once the string is tuned at the harmonic note check to see if it's in tune played open, keep tuning and adjusting tell the strings are in tune open and at the 12th fret on all six strings
once intonation is set properly the guitar will sound better
really hope that helps?

How do I set the tuner to tune at different keys?


Good question, tuners can be simple and some are complicated
a basic automatic guitar tuner you would not have to do anything to the settings, just tune normal on the E string then slowly down tune to D most tuners are a little sensitive, so go slow
and one thing I always do is go lower than the note I'm tuning to then tune up tell it's correct, strings seem to stay in tune better
Hope this helps ?
and if you have time check back on my profile
I will be doing some video tips this weekend
showing tuning, and some basic guitar repairs
thanks for your time

Tuner Won't Acknowledge Sound


Before turning the unit on, press the calib/batt button to check the battery condition.
The Fender AG6 only responds when the strings pitch is within a certain frequency range. If the guitars tuning is not within that range or if your installing new strings, first connect the guitar to the AG6 with a cord that you know to be in good working condition and turn the AG6 on. Then starting with the low E string (the thickest one), loosen the tuning peg to a point well below the standard tuning for that string. Then slowly tighten the peg as you strike the string repeatedly. When the strings frequency, comes within range you will see the 6E light glow and the needle will begin to deflect. When the needle reaches zero it is in tune. Do the remainder of the strings the same way then go back and recheck each a second time. If you have a tuning fork, you can use it to tune by ear then re-tune and maintain it with the AG6
Remember to always stretch then re-tune new strings several times.
If the AG6 does not respond even after checking the condition of the battery and the cord that connects the guitar to the tuner, the problem could be inside the AG6 with a bad connection on the board. Try moving the cord as you strike a string that you know is close to being in tune. Again a tuning fork would be helpful.

Ive got a dean vedetta guitar with floyd rose pickup... every time i tune it, it goes off in a while... also my string levels are very high which makes it difficult to play... i dont have much knowledge...


Some tuners have a weird mode that one presses the button once and the tuner will pass the audio until it times out, then tuner and audio stop. Two presses kills audio while tuner works for a time period and then goes dead. A third press enables audio to pass for normal playing. These are confusing compared to other type built in tuners. If you have one of these read the CONFUSING instructions carefully...

Hi, i have a acoustic guitar and i am trying to tune it but i do not know how to use the Matrix Chromatic Tuner SR-1050


Hi
Simply turn the tuner on using the power button. Play an open string note close to the tuner (no more than about 1/2 metre away) - for instance the low E on string 6.
The built in microphone will pick up the sound and, if your guitar is reasonably close to being in tune the led light labelled 'E' will illuminate on the lower scale on the tuner along with one of the three other leds to indicate whether the note is flat (b), in tune (green) or sharp (#).
Due to harmonics any or all of these three leds may flash but it is the one that is on the most that matters.
Adjust the tuning peg until the green is on constantly when you play the string.
Move on to the next string
Note - if the string is more than a semitone sharp or flat a different light may flash (e.g if the low E string is 3/4 of a tone flat the D light will come on).
If you wish to tune your guitar to another instrument that is not at perfect pitch (and perhaps cannot be easily adjusted - like a pipe organ) you can use the calibrate button to adjust the setting of the tuner. This temporary recalibration will be lost when the tuner is turned off.

Is he tuner supposed to light up green when the string is correctly tuned?


Before turning the unit on, press and hold down the calib/batt switch to check the condition of the battery on the battery meter.

Then either plug in your electric guitar to the input side of the AG-6 or if tuning an acoustic guitar without electronics placing the AG-6 near the front of the guitar should work. You will not need to press a button to select which string you are about to tune. The AG-6 will detect it and the corresponding light will turn on when it is tuned within range.

Turn on the AG-6 and start by striking the low E (thickest) string while open. This is the number 6 string or 6E. Slowly turn the guitars low E tuning key untill the red LED below the 6E marking on the AG-6 lights up. Continue stricking the open string and turning the key untill the needle centers on zero and the 6E light remains on.

Repeat this for the open A string untill the 5A light turns on and the needle centers on zero.

Repeat for the remaining four strings, 4D 3G 2B and 1E, being careful not to over tighten and break them.

Tip: It may be a good idea once the low E string is tuned, to tune the rest manually, especially new strings or strings way out of tune. Then tune again using the AG-6 tuner.
.
If installing fresh strings you will probably need to stretch each string and re-tune, possibly several times, before they hold their tuning.

I just got this guitar. I pull the tuner control, strum the string and after the guitar tune itself, the G string still out of tune??


Are you sure you are struming the G string at the right point? One might be able to fool the tuner by triggering a harmonic on the strings or being too aggressive in the strum.

I would pull the peg and see if the string CAN be tuned manually. It is possible the G string is bad or somebody put the wrong string on there.

Remember that strings can be within about 10% of the breaking tension when in tune.

Also it appears that the thing can detune itself to nearby keys. Make sure you have the dial set correct when you pull it out to tune.

Need Korg GT-2 chromatic tuner help


well i hope you've figured it out by now, it's a really cool looking tuner and i love it. but if you are still having problems...
the switch on the left side: OFF, ON, LMP (ON with a little light so you can see in the dark)
The number and letters you see across the top of the interface indicate which string it is tuning to. 6E is the low E string (the thickest one) and 1E is the high E string (the thin one on the bottom of the guitar), i've seen many people get confused when they've tuned those two.
You can leave the tuner in auto and it will pick up what string you are trying to tune. but if you are having problems getting the correct string or whatever the case is, you can switch to manual mode. click the only button on the tuner and the specific string will light up on the interface.
If you press and hold the button, the tuner will go into flat mode, tuning all the strings flat.
once you have the right string and you're tuning it in, you want the needle to be centered.
that's pretty much it. enjoy!

I have an Ibanez Art 100 and I am having trouble tuning the G string. It seems to sound sour and either a little flat or sharp.


Trace the string from the body to the tuning peg, making sure that there isn't anything rubbing and that the string is routed properly. Compare it's routing to your other strings. When you get to the tuning peg, note how many tines the string goes around the peg. It should go around at least three times (more is better, to a point), and wrap above and below the tail of the string to friction lock it to the peg. If it isn't locked in, the string will loosen itself over a period of time, making it impossible to keep it tuned.
Hope this helps! Regards, --W/D--

LP epiphone 100 "g" string problem,


after tuning ....put a capo on ... if this stops the problem then the cause must either be
1 the string catching in the top nut or
2 a faulty machine head
if it still goes out of tune with the capo on then look at where the ball end of the string sits
