My Pico is doing something extremely bizarre!! aka("The Pico Petting Thread"-ed) - Page 3

post #31 of 47
The static on my Gilmore (and the other equipment I had that did it) did it all the time, exactly the same.

You're gonna have to explain to me how you get the macbook pro to purr? What size is yours? Perhaps I only have the touch with the Pico, I can't get my 17" to purr at all.

Pico Purring may possibly be due to static electricity dissipation, with grounding, but whatever the case, I have never been able to hear it in audio output of the Pico ever.

On a slightly sadder note, I can't seem to get my Pico to "Purr" for my anymore. I guess it only happens if I pet my Pico just right?

Hmmm. The humidity level is very low today. Lots of static electricity around. I'm listening to my Pico right now and I typically am able to hear static electricity dissipating when I touch my headphone cable, and I get a nice jolt when I touch anything metal that is grounded.

But still, my Pico will not Purr for me. I have doubts about the static electricity theory.

so electron's escape when you stroke it huu? I've had the same problem since around 12-13 years old. It's a good sign, or at least that's what she said.

Seriously though, it's the cap. On the Hornet's, that large cap that is usually secured to the board by a dab of superglue, if that detaches the cap stands on it's big legs and sorta acts like a pendulum. It's all about weight distobustion

I don't think static has much to do with it because I could pet mine for hours without the purring coming to an end. Humidity doesn't have an effect either as I just went from Pittsburgh (cloud city) to Fort Collins (Mile High and dry) and there isn't any difference.

One thing that does make a big difference though, is what the Pico is sitting on. If it's on a blanket or something it will really purr but if I try to hold it in my hand while petting I feel nothing.

Also, for you Edwood the new title.

Well, after sending my Pico back to Justin to check out and fix, the Pico Purr is back and this time we now know why.

It's normal for this to happen, and doesn't harm anything.

In fact, the problem I had was with the grounding, and the problems began when the Pico Purr went away.

So, in my case, the Pico Purr is a good thing.

Thanks for that link.

You know...I've read that if you keep petting your Pico, you could go blind.
post #44 of 47
Yep, it purrs more when I remove my crocs! It's when I'm grounded!

Double post - glitch in the matrix!
