UK Broken(?) Distortion pedal

Hello, Recently I received a Micro metal muff distortion pedal for my birthday last week, i opened it's box, played it for a while (was amazing to use ), however recently it has stopped working. The sound is muted completely when i turn it on and when it is connected to the amp by cable,also a buzzing noise; similar to the buzzing of feedback is heard when the switch comes into contact with anything.

i changed the battery but to no avail, however i was sceptical of the charge in the batteries and am now getting a 9V adapter from amazon to confirm that it is or isn't the battery...and i'm enquiring as to whether this is a problem with power, or a problem with the pedal.

current set-up:
2 high quality instrument cables from Stagg
a Lindo Flying V style electric guitar
and a G860HR tune amplifier

anything would be useful

thank you.

or at least wait and see if it's the battery/power supply. but if it's not, you should have warranty if you bought it new... use it.

I had a pedal where one of the two wires that connects to the battery slipped lose and wasn't making contact. Leads to those exact symptoms.
