J&Hv1 not working, can i fix it?

hello,
so a while ago i bought a boss NS-2 and used it in my pedal chain, and despite turning the knobs to the max, my jekyll and hyde distortion was still noisy, quiter then before but still...
anyway it is part of a pedal chain of 8 pedals powered by a one spot, and has battery in it, so while playing i decided to unplug the one spot so it runs on battery and maybe goes a little quite, instead a horrible noise started, and now my j&h v1 is not working.
i tried it alone, when nothing is engaged, the volune is low and, and the sound is.choppy.
when the distortion side is engaged, it acts as a mute pedal
the overdrive however does not mute the sound, but still it is low and choppy.
any idea what happened? is it fixable?

Try a fresh battery. Also try taking it out of the chain and run it to the amp by itself.

sounds like J&H is jacked? actually, why did ask that? it does sound like the J&H is jacked. if you're running it straight into the amp with a battery and it's sputtering then something is fuctup.

you can take it to a tech, but that is prob worth more than the pedal in a used market. sorry dude.

i took it to a shop in here, well apperently no one here knows how to fix pedals, he told me just buy a new one. So a tech is out of the question in here (Lebanon).

what does jacked means?
and dont worry, i already bought a metal muff to replace it, im just cheking if i can save it in my free time

damn, that sucks but it's not uncommon. many techs won't waste their time with pedals, a bench fee along starts approaching the pedal's cost anyway

jacked = messed up/non-operational.

you may be able to. most likely it is just a cap or resistor that is bad. the cost in fixing it is not in the part so much as it is tied up in the troubleshooting (finding what is broke).

if you can read a schematic and operate a mult-meter then chances are you can fix the pedal with a little solder and time. unfortunately i am not the person to ask how to troubleshoot. make those boys at the pedalboard thread work, ask them how to go about troubleshooting it. they may act like morons, but they actually know wassup.
