Hola amigos,
My Infinity's preamp may be dead, it works in "passive" mode but not in "active".

I want to give it a good check out but It's so cramped inside the electronic's compartment that it is hard to check any single cable...how do you safely take the electronics out of the bass without cutting or unsoldering any cable? Is it possble?
Cheers.

Stuipid question: Did you replace and check the battery?
I've had the same issue with an active bass before ,and it turned out the 9v battery clip was oxidized/rusted.
I think it was a 40 cent fix and 2 minutes of soldering.

Unless your pickups have a sloderless connection, you'll need to unsodler the pickup leads cables at least.
However I don't think it's a wire issue.
I'm not familiar with the Infinity. Is the "passive" mode a real passive mode, or like the other Warwick i've seen a "preamp bypass" mode ?
If you remove the battery, do you still have sound going out ?
My first idea would be dead preamp, as you still have sound coming out when the preamp is in bypass mode.
