View Full Version : Eleuke electrical issues

hey...I'm sure this has been covered. I got one a while back of ebay and hadnt really plugged it in for a while (kinda dumb, ya). It's in and out when jacked in...is there a quick fix for this? what's typically the problem...bad soldering? work for a luthier or what?

thanks...its a great instrument but kinda moot without the electronics

Just to sorta eliminate what it isn't, have you put in a new battery?

battery was spankin new...it works, but it'll have phases where it's shortin in and out at a very fast pace like its a soldering joint or bad connection somewhere

Check the cable you're using too I guess.
Sometimes a bad cable does that..

The amp too.

Does plugging in another electric instrument using the same cable + amp work just fine?

In that case, the uke may be to blame. Not too sure how to go about fixing it. I wonder what Eleuke's warranty policy is.

Yeah I had a great cable just suddenly go all AM radio on me recently. Great one day, dead the next. Hopefully it's something more mundane like this.

not the cable...I use the same cable for guitar and its just fine. I've also used a friends cable and its the same issue, guitar is fine...eleuke is in and out
