    OK so I've had mine for a while. Anyway, when it's on but not getting any signal it still shows notes and the LED display is going all over the place. It doesn't just sit dormant. Is that bad, does that mean its broken? It never used to do that before.

    Check your plug. It may be partially pulled out. Check your battery too.

    I run it off a Dunlop Juice Box. So no battery, which plug are you talking about?

    Gotcha. Well it isn't that either. Time for a new tuner.

    Other than that it works fine, I know becuase I will practice with CD's and that's my main tuner. So... who knows. :meh:

    check and make sure you're still in the proper mode, mine did the same thing until i realized the button had been reset while setting up for a gig.....it took me a while but i finally figured it out, and resetting the mode corrected the prolem.

    the TU-2 is VERY senesitive.. It'll try to find ht epitch off of any signal sent to it.

    If I have my cable plugged in to the tuner, but not my bass, it'll catch any line noise coming into the cable.

    As long as:
    1) it's still accurate
    2) it's not screwing with your tone

    it's fine.
     
  8. By freaky, do you mean Streaming setting freaky? I like that one quite a bit, the scrolling LEDs are just great.
