Intermittent battery---short?
« on: January 30, 2006, 07:40:33 AM »
[?]I have a problem with an intermittent battery.  On my Nitefly (98) this weekend, the acoustic side kept cutting out.  If I opened the battery door and closed it several times, it would crackle and pop and then it would start working for a while and then I would have to do it all over again.  Before I try and open it up and look for a battery short, is there any advice that I can get on pulling it apart.  How do you get the battery box out, lenght of wire, do I need to pull the front apart as well?  [B)]Any advice from experienced players would be greatly appreciated.  I truly need this guitar for the weekend.
Thanks[8]

OK, so once I took a look at the battery box, it was no big deal.  The contacts over the years had bent do that the opposite end of the battery wasn't pushed againt the body, so with a couple easy bends, the problem is fixed.  The battery box comes apart very easily, just don't force it and all will be good.

Nope, it didn't fix it.  It's back again.  See "Playing one minute, no pickups the next... " hope we can find an answer to these problems.
