My Play Acoustic center control knob is not functioning. It spins normally, but feels a little loose and does not operate when trying to adjust settings. I removed the plastic knob but I don't see anything broken nor do I see any way to furthur diagnose this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Hey Ryan, I've seen that happen on a Play Acoustic that was dropped before. Part of what connects the outer rubber knob to the inner circuit board is plastic and if it's stomped on or dropped it's possible to break it. The only fix was soldering in a new actuator. If you get in contact with our support guys you may be able to get the replacement part, or discuss sending it for service.
I have the same problem with my play electric, how hard it is to repair ?, any technician can do it? do you send parts? It is a very common problem in this series? I'm from México, but I have family in te US.
just returned from holiday and tried to set up my Play Acoustic as it was a gift bought for my birthday 3 weeks ago. Control knob turns but does not operate any adjustments. How do I get a replacement unit?
I had same problem on my 3 Month old Play Acoustic (In Australia). Contacted TC Helicon via 'support' here (Very prompt and helpful) and they directed me to Australian Distributor/Repairs - I think called Ambertech, (Even more prompt and helpful) Sent unit away and it came back fully functioning and good to go, and Ambertech sent me update emails along the way to keep me in the loop. Benefits of buying quality products from reputable companies I guess ( And no... I don't work for any of these)
This just happened to me last night. I am shocked, and not pleased, but since I don't know what happened I have to take responsibility for now. How much is this going to cost to fix or how do I ENSURE there is no other option but to accept that the control knob has broken somehow?
The know on my Voicelive play is broken as well. Is there any way at all to edit parameters on the pedal without this knob? Or is a software editor in the works? Otherwise it's not worth the cost to ship to an authorized repair center, pay for parts and labor and return shipment.
