Remember that while in tuner mode, the audio output is disabled. Try additional presses of the tuner button to see if the audio comes back on. Also verify the volume and EQ gains are turned up. Verify the battery is new.

Ibanez Pre amp problem


It sounds like the guitar pickup may be faulty. It may be a loose connection on the which could be soldered easily or it may be damaged in some other way.

As this is isolated with your G string, I suspect the individual pickup unit is at fault.

Hi, I have a problem with my ibanez ew20ase preamp tuner, it was working fine yesterday, now today it doesn't turn on at all, I've tried new batteries but to no avail, also, when I amp it up, preamp works...


I can't seem to find info on this preamp but, that sounds like a power supply problem, considering, the tuner is the part of the circuit that would need power. Volume and tone controls don't, unless they are active,(which I've never seen a reason for). I would try a new battery, because I think you left it on overnight, check the slot for corrosion or a loose wire or connection.

My ibanez Ael20 works for 2 seconds when plugged in and than stops working. I have replaced the batteries.


Make sure you are using a TS type cable (standard guitar cable, not balanced). Make sure the tuner is off as there are modes for tuning that kill the outgoing audio during tuning.

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.

Hello,I am a guitar tech in Nanaimo,BC,Canada and have run into this problem before.Simply replace the Takamine output jack [where the guitar cord goes into] 3 screws and solder,and it will work fine again.The jack has a switching mechanism in it and when it fails it shorts the output out.The jack is available at most Takamine dealers or Allparts http://www.allparts.com/SearchResults.asp?searching=Y&sort=7&search=jack&show=20&page=5

No signal, or in and out ,not battery or preamp


This appears to have a built in tuner. When you press the tuner button, that kills all output. Make sure the tuner is OFF to get output.

Hello, I have found that Ibanez AEL20 guitars' 5AEQ45F (SRTn) preamp-tuner has a 6V voltage, my AEL20 guitar came with 1,5 V batteries (3V in total). There is no internet source to get the...


There is little data on the internet about this... However my AEL20E uses 2 AA cells. Some older ones may have used a 9 volt battery. Yours should use the 2 AA cells which go into the box right by the XLR output plug.
