I bought a crybaby at the pawn shop, and the bypass stopped working, I can push it as hard as I can, but it won't go out of wah mode.

The button underneath the foot pedal might need adjusted! Try pushing the switch with your finger and see if that works. Sometimes guys will glue a penny underneath the foot pedal to help push the switch down.
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

Than the switch may be Bad or you have a wire disconnected. When you push the button with your finger is it bottoming out on the bolt perhaps.

What a great idea! I don't have much trouble turning my Wah on and off, but that would make it all the more easier!!

If the switch doesnt click by using your finger then its bad. Convert to truebypass problem solved.

had the same thing happen to my brand new wah, christmas day. the switch was bad. compare the switch action with that of a working switch. if the switch travel is shorter, or rough, id say thats your culprit. i think its a SPDT.

they sell replacement switches for those for a reason, not hard to fix only have to solder a few wires to the new one, and thats if the switch is dead it might just be a loose wire
