Know that for a Jamstik+ model, the power indicator light is located above the power button rather than over the strings.

- If your Jamstik is out of tune or gets a stuck note, perform a soft-reset by pressing both (+) & (-) buttons simultaneously.
- If your LED is blinking Red & Green, this indicates a low battery, and your AA batteries should be replaced. Always use wired headphones or speakers for the best performance.
- Keep your fingers away from the fretboard during power-up. If your strings feel loose, tighten them up with the included Allen wrench. Make sure not to compress the springs all the way.
- Your Jamstik has a built-in sleep timer, so you'll have to "wake up" the fretboard after 2 minutes, or turn the power back on after 15 minutes of inactivity.
- Wireless headphones & speakers cause a delay. Always use wired audio output from your connected device for the best playing experience.
