PolyTune displaying only 4 strings (EADG) instead of 6 strings

Question

My PolyTune is stuck in "Bass Tuning" mode.  When I plug my 6 string guitar in, only the middle 4 LEDs light on the main screen. How do resolve this?

Answer

When pressing the PolyTune 'Display' button, it will toggle between 4 different modes:

  • Needle (Guitar),
  • Stream (Guitar),
  • Needle (Bass),
  • Stream (Bass).

So, try pressing the 'Display' button until you have the "needle" indication AND a "G" in the display. The "G" stands for guitar; if you have a "B" in there the tuner is expecting a bass signal, hence the four EADG strings.
