Often, the flashing green light indicates that the tuner is NOT receiving a signal and is a warning that the tuner is turned on.

First thing is to check if you have normal output from the guitar from the pickup. If the output is normal, there MAY be a failure in the tuner.

ALSO, just because a battery is new doesn't mean the battery isn't depleted... either try another from a different batch or use a voltmeter to check it. I have seen people chasing their tails due to a brand new bad battery.

When you select the tuner does the audio OUT of the guitar cut off as it is supposed to?

    I have the same problem on my Fender t-bucket. The Fishman isys 3 tuner just stopped working one day after i changed the original battery. Ive tried 3 different battteries and still get a flashing green light just like yours. It worked perfectly for about two months though. Not sure what to do if the tuner is already failing. The preamp works great still.

    I have the same guitar (t-bucket 400ce) and the same issue, i bought it used and thought it might just be a battery, replaced the battery and same problem... any chance you got it tested? what was the result - faulty unit right?

    I am having the same issue with a secondhand Fender CD-60CE. The led blinks when tuner active and I still have audio to my amp. Any advice?

My fishman clearwave 60 tuner will not give me a green light...it just jumps back and forth between sharp and flat, no matter how small the movement on the guitar key


You may have the tuner too far away from the guitar or the batteries may be going flat. Check to make sure that there is nothing blocking the microphone hole and that there is no other noises in the area which could be affecting what the tuner is hearing

Just purchased a used Alvarez FF60WR. The Electrical part works, but the on board tuner does not. It lights up when you turn it on, but the pitch indicator lights do not flash, and neither do the arrows,...


my on board tuner used to do that. I just tried to tune the guitar normally and it usually worked after a couple of seconds. The tuner needs sound to work - it won't work without you playing any notes :)

I've changed battery in isys+ pre amp on vintage vec500 and now tuner doesn't work (it is blinking green on note tuner no matter of tune and no note letters showing - blank screen)


Is the battery installed in correct polarity? If so- try rotate it in position to rub through potential corrosion.

Since it has a remote battery, it would not hurt to look at the installation to make sure no wires are broken. Especially the ground wire to the pickup.

It might also be a good idea to apply some contact cleaner to the output plug since it is in the power circuit. Cycle the plug in and out a few times to clean the contacts. Also some contact cleaner to the preamp controls would be useful.

Be aware some lubricants may contain silicone and that can interfere with wood finishes or repairs to the finish in the future.

Hi i recently bought a Takamine EG 260c G Series acoustic electric Guitar with TP-4T preamp installed in it. Now the problem is when i connect my guitar to an amplifier, the sound comes through it only...


That is working backwards from what it should be. I suspect a wiring error. Since this is a recent purchase, do NOT risk voiding your warranty. There isn't any real good documentation on the tuner.
I am not sure which tuner you have HOWEVER with one type, the FIRST press will turn on the tuner with the sound going out as well till the tuner goes off. The SECOND press silences the sound and is tuner only, the THIRD press turns off tuner and passes the sound. This is different than a lot of tuners and you will need to do three presses to restore sound instead of the usual two.

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.

I have a takemine 523 12 string. recently, the preamp starting flashing arrows up and down, the tuner is inop and can't get sound through the amp. Any suggestions?


I have this same problem. I press the button to turn the tuner on and nothing happens except the arrows on screen flash alternately. There's also no sound from the output

No instructions for a yamaha erg 121 c electric guitar


i don't really know what instructions you expected, although you should have received something for the tuner and amp. I suspect that you are new to playing the guitar, as, I don't wish to sound disrespectful, you would know what to do! So first, and again I hope not to sound like I'm treating you like a dummy, plug the guitar into the tuner input. Or if It's a piezo tuner clamp it to your headstock. Most tuners are now automatic so it should pick up on the string you are striking.Repeatedly pluck the same string til the tuner changes colour, or flashes, or some other indication to tell you the string is at pitch. Repeat the above for all 6 strings.
Then plug the cable into the amp input, switch it on, and bugger about with the controls til you get a half decent sound. ( thats what the rest of us do).Don't expext too much from this package, it is budget level, but of quite good overall quality.hope this helps
