BeatBuddy Volume % keeps showing in the screen

I don’t know if somebody has posted something about it, but anyway here it goes.

BeatBuddy user for 5+ years and successfully playing live with it every week in an outdoor venue since October 2020, yesterday at a party the BB started showing constantly the Volume % in the screen. Also, the volume didn’t go below 7% and neither beyond 87%. Very odd. The first time.

I thought at first it was the Firmware or the Card, but it wasn’t because I took the card out and the error kept showing on the screen.

So, I opened the BB and used an air duster cleaner for a couple of minutes.

Voila! It worked.

So, I hope this helps for somebody out there.

I’ve long believed that a little bit of housekeeping under the hood of our BeatBuddys as you’ve described is a great starting point for troubleshooting.

That and careful use of DeOxit to help restore switch functionality.

That happened to my older original BB as well some time ago.
Just out warrantee of course.
I was told it was the main board.
I will try the air cleaner tomorrow. Thanks for passing it on.
