Play Acoustic: How to fix a blue screen


I don't see any writing on the display of my Play Acoustic, just a blue screen. How do I fix this?


If you only have a blue screen on the Play Acoustic, please run the found at the bottom of this post to fix the issue.

If that doesn't solve the issue, please try these steps:

  1. Go to and download/install the program (Mac users can use Sysex Librarian).
  2. Download the firmware attached to this post labelled - PlayAcoustic 1.0.04 BUILD21 MIDIOX.syx (right click and "Save as" to a convenient location).
  3. Watch the video below to see how to get your device into boot mode and send the new firmware to the unit.

You should now have a working Play Acoustic!
