Help! Tech S.O.S (Off topic)

General tech help for computers or music equipment.

The purpose of this forum is for people to get assistance from the community for any computer related or music equipment tech question. Anything remotely tech or musical is fair game.

Examples:

  • my guitar sound has a buzz when I plugin to my guitar
  • which type of guitar strings are best for a telecaster?
  • my iPhone won't charge -why?
  • what's a good set of home speakers for a living room.
  • should I buy an android or iPhone?
  • what's a good entry level saxophone to buy?
  • is a 4K TV worth it?

Note: This is an "Off-Topic" help forum. For assistance with Band-in-a-Box and other PG Music Products, you should post on the appropriate "PG Music Product" forum.
