  • Stop Making Sound

    Changed out battery and all looks fine inside, five green lights and yet all of a sudden no sound. Tried another battery just in case and same result. Everything is tight and plugged in fine. No wires frayed let alone loose. Anyone had this before? Troubleshooting tips?

    I just replied to the email you sent in. I'm not sure what's going on but if you want to do some troubleshooting with me I'm sure we can get to the bottom of this one way or another.

      Having the same issue. New battery, new guitar cables, even observed the female connector where the guitar cable connects to the pickup in the guitar body. Tried blowing out with compressed air and electronic cleaner; even removing the connector from the guitar body to see it the actual connector was loose, but the connector was firmly set to the guitar body like it was a new guitar setup. I work on a lot of electronics myself. Still, sound will only work for a few seconds or minutes after I unplugged the guitar cable from the guitar pickup and re-plug it back in. Personally I think it's the connection from the cable to the pickup connector on the internal side of the connector. I would like to repair it myself so I won't be absent a pickup for weeks on end having to send it in to LRBaggs. Would be nice for a repair walk-through but I could be just "whistlin dixie" .

        If you want to go into some in-depth troubleshooting, I'd be happy to help you out. It's easier to do that over email if you want to get me at [email protected].

        The first thing that comes to mind is to make sure you're using a TS instrument cable and not a TRS/balanced cable, which won't turn the Anthem on properly.

        If you're using a TS cable and getting a good reading on the battery check, then it sounds like there could be an issue with the preamp. It's hard to say for sure based on the limited information though.
