My newly refinished MPC bass is draining its battery even when not plugged in. I never modified any of its wiring. Isn't the battery circuitry disconnected when unplugged? Anyone with any ideas, comments or suggestions?

Thanks.

Chris

The battery circuit is designed to shut off when un-plugged. Is it possible something was changed when it was refinished? I would look at the jack in particular. You could try cleaning the contacts on the modules in case something is going wrong there. A pencil eraser works well for this.
