Eletro Harmonix LPB-1 not working ?

I just bought a LPB-1 ( booster) brand new. Unboxed the pedal, put in the 9v adapter, inserted the pedal in the effects chain.

After i stomp on it, the pedal just mute the sound. No boost. I turned the boost knob up and only got some hum. The LED lights up fine.

I have no clue of whats happening, im planing to return the pedal, but i want to hear some suggestions on what may be the problem before doing it.

Sorry about my bad english.

Is it the right power supply?
Have you plugged the guitar into the Input and the amp into the Output?

but if that isn't the case send it back.

Could be a bad solder on the pot somewhere. Which is a pretty easy fix if you know anything about soldering. If not, send it in and hope they're not like Dunlop and charge you for the part.

Just fill out the warranty stuff and send it back. And if you have your receipt send that too.
