Post subject:  acoustasonic charge problems

I love my new fender acoustasonic guitar.
its a amazing piece of technology.
that said..
im having major problems with the usb charging system.
I charged it overnight initially and the light was green indicating fully charged.
since then it wont fully charge. worse yet it stopped working on me
it will charge for 20 sec ..then click to green..then back to red
there is no info for this light sequence in manual.
but it seems to be stuck in a loop
At last nights performance..it crapped out all together ..I thought..well the manual says I can play it while charging...didn't work..it started making my loudbox amp making popping noises and dropping out all guitar .
right now I wish they had a battery in the damn thing.
I was just getting to know this guitar..help

That's just about impossible to diagnose via the web, and I'd guess repairing would require pro level skills - "Any service work should be performed by a Fender Authorized Service Center" as they say, and this time it's appropriate.
Checking and cleaning the plugs/jacks won't harm, but I doubt it'll help, either.

But you should be covered by the warranty (or local consumer legislation), Acoustasonics are all still new-ish.

Hi. I just posted a description of the exact same problem in the Telecaster Forum. I have to guess if it is fully charged (or just minimally charged) and can't play it while it's charging due to the loud popping noises.
