TC Polytune..... I think it's not working??

  1. Hey guys. I just got a Polytune in the mail and need to check to see if I'm missing something. Either I have a faulty unit or a case of "user error".

    When I plug it in I get the start up: "B STD, 440" etc.... then nothing. The bypass works but tapping the switch doesn't mute/tune. I'm running it on a decent battery and tried it on a Boss 9V DC supply.

    Time to send it back or am I missing something obvious?

    Tx, Vin

    Dumb have your bass plugged directly into it, right?

    Plug it in, step on it, it should tune.

    I get the same thing if I plug in a balanced (stereo) cable, as opposed to a normal (mono) guitar cable.
