  • iMix Notch battery light stays on

    I have a 2006 Larrivee LV-05E with the iMix Notch system. The battery light is staying on even when unplugged. I have to pop the battery out every time I finish playing. Is this repairable, or do you offer a current pre-amp that will work with my ibeam and element pickups and fit in the current cut-out?

    Hey Mark,
    The best test to try would be to unplug the output cable from the back of the preamp, inside of the guitar. If unplugging the cable turns the system off, then there is a short in the cable/jack, and that is all that you would need to replace. If the light stays on, even with the output cable unplugged, then the preamp is the problem.

    In any case, the Stage Pro Element and the Stage Pro Anthem are both drop-in replacements for the Larrivee Notch systems. So either one would be a suitable system replacement.

    I hope that helps.

      Thanks, I'll try that. Maybe I'll get lucky.

        Reached inside and unplugged the output cable. Came out surprisingly easy. Put the battery back in and light is off. Plugged the output cable back in and light stayed off. Plugged into an amp and I'm good to go. Must have been just loose enough to still work, but short the circuit, leaving the system on.

        Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
