Les Paul Robot does not stop blinking blue light

Recommended Posts

I have the EXACT same problem with my Gibson Les Paul Robot (1st Production Run). When I pull out the MCK knob all blue lights are flashing.

 

I'm very interested in a solution. Please let me know if you find a solution.

 

Best regards

I contacted Tronical's people (who are the makers of the system). They told me that it could be a problem in the body of the guitar. They asked to remove the battery, wait 15 minutes and test again. I did this, but it did not work. According to them I would have to change the CPU. I managed to make it work by letting it blink in blue until the battery was exhausted and recharged normally. It returned to work, but after a while the problem returns.

Hello again. I took the procedure to remove the battery for 15 minutes, but it did not solve the problem (aka, the battery is not the original one). I was able to partially solve the problem by doing the following: I left the system with blue light blinking until the battery was discharged; when recharging the battery the tuning system returned to normal operation, but after a few hours began a problem different from the previous one. When I turn on the system, it has all the functions that work, except for the tuning. I made a new video demonstrating the problem. When I turn the knob on, the blue light flashes once, so all the red lights are left except for D flashing blue. I can verify the charge of the beteria, enter the Calibration Mode and the Setup Mode as you can see in the video I posted on youtube (

I did the following and so far it helped:

 

I pulled the MCK for about 72 hours until the battery died (the last two hours I heard some kind of clicking sound from the electronics, not sure why or what made the sound). Then I put the MCK back in. Then I pulled it out again for normal recharging.

 

The tuning mechanism is working normally again. I wonder for how long. But for the moment it seems OK.

That'll make the gigs go great.

Yeah, those things are fine when they work but when they don't, big problem. Can you even tune it regularly when it doesn't work? It reminds me of Spinal Tap and their wireless system.

Of course I can tune the Les Paul Robot regularly. Absolutely no problem. But I didn't buy it to tune it with a Polytune. When you have a robot guitar you wanna use the built-in tuner to quickly change tunings. That's why you bought it ;-)

Thanks. I honestly didn't know. I figured you could but have never tried one to test it.

Check out this video at 1:27min

 

When you pull out the head tuner knobs you can manually tune the guitar.

I am having the problem you had back in 2017.  Did you ever get your problem resolved?

I am having the problem you had, and wonder if your solution to let the battery die completely worked.  I mean, I know it worked, but did it CONTINUE to work?  When you say you did normal recharging, do you mean the Emergency Charge Mode?
