Hi,

I found the problem--a broken wire on the guitar jack. Strange, but because of that, the indicator on the controller wouldn't come on. Really a simple solder fix, and everything works fine! Thanks corpmica and fredy2 for your replies!

Actually, the battery is near the back of the neck (to the right side).
There's maybe some disconnected cables somewhere inside. And as fredy2 said, What a pain that is.
It happenned to me once. I had to unscrew the 3.5mm female jack of the guitar (take the strinfs off) and to weld back one cable to it.
The harder is to put back the plug (sorry for my english...). You will need to be very very patient.

LIKELY the internal battery is exhausted. On some of these you have to take the strings off to get to the battery inside. What a pain that is.

How to Choose A Good Beginner Guitar


Many guitar beginners go for acoustic guitar as their 1st guitar. It not a bad idea to get started with acoustic guitar. Listed here are a few greatest acoustic guitar models you can take into account when you buy your 1st beginner guitar.
Being a Japanese electric corporation, Yamaha began to make all kinds of instruments include guitars and grew to be a brand-new star in the market . Their guitars targeted at all kinds of customers from learners to skilled musicians.An example of the quality affordable beginner acoustic guitars they supplied is Yamaha FG700S. This model has a solid spruce top and laminate sides and back with the good tone just cost you about 200 bucks. Most beginner's acoustic guitars usually have high action that is the gap between guitar strings and fretboard. The sound of this Yamaha guitar models is very excellent regardless of the high action of the factory setting.
Fender is a reputable electric guitar provider and provides consumer with its Fender type electric guitars. Fender acoustic guitar is not just as popular as its electric guitar. Yet the low end entry level line of Fender acoustic guitars are also the number 1 choice for some beginning learners. On most online shopping websites, you could find Fender acoustic guitar. One of the best entry level acoustic guitar model of Fender is the Starcaster acoustic guitar. It owns solid top and laminated back and sides, that is great for its price tag. In brief, Fender Starcaster is an inexpensive beginner guitar.
Alvarez is a guitar brand that is not as famous as other giant companies. The Regent series from Alvarez is affordable as well as built with premium quality. This model has solid top and Dreadnought size. The sound is deep and powerful. You might feel it is a more expensive model if you hear it the first time because the tone is quite distinctive and awesome. The price of Alvarez Regent is about TWO HUNDRED bucks which is very appealing and might be the greatest affordable solid top guitar model.
I will be really pleased if the information above could help you find the perfect entry level guitar model. To get more details on guitar models and brands for beginners, check out Beginner Guitar

IF YOUR GUITAR has a built in tuner, make sure the tuner is off as it disables output while tuning... The other thing is to check if you have a volume control on the guitar that might be set too low.. Make sure if you are using 1/4 inch plug guitar cable that it is NOT a TRS balanced cable, as that will turn off the power in the guitar.

When I plug in a hum will start and when I touch the jack an the guitar it stops humming . It's a yamaha acoustic electric.


You have a broken ground either on the jack, the plug or internal in the amp. Check both connections first. I think you will find it. If not open the amp and check for broken wires, cracked solder joints, etc. While checking the connections resolder all connections no matter what they look like. Let me know how you make out.

Can't figure out where the batteries go on yamaha AP500 acoustic electric guitar. I unscrewed the small little box and pulled out a bigger box with no obvious batteries in sight.


If it is an APX-500, the battery is in a holder between the neck and the tuner on the curved sides of the guitar. It should unlatch. The battery (9V) goes into the holder and is inserted and latches.

Yamaha psr-240 lights up but no sound.. no sound from head phones either. Seems to be working with exception of sound out..


try placing your ear on the speakers, adjust the volume control up and down several times, you should hear a humming sound that goes up and down. if not problem with the stage before the amplifier, that is the sound processor. if you dont hear the hum. problem with the amplifier and speakers, including the sound ports or jack. dissassemble the unit. look for loose connections from speakers to amplifier.
