did you check all the ratings where correct before you plugged it in? have you checked the battery you are using has power in it?

Well at least now you now know not to trust what anyone says over the internet without checking it yourself.

What is the input voltage rating on the pedal?

what is the voltage rating on the power supply?

well it says for the pedal at least 100mA and the optional power supply is 9.6dc-200bi and it says its the same as used by boss witch is what the i spot says it can be used for. and then it says 9/6 volts DC 200mA. so i dont know what the problem was

You've burnt it out. Happened with a pedal I had. If your warranty is up then you're ****ed so just buy a new one.

Well it works with the power supply but will it work as good?

Its just the battery circuit thats dead so if you're fine using a power supply (don't be a cheap skate, use the one they tell you to) then there's no problem. Personally I find it much better to use batteries with a charger so i can have less sodding cables everywhere.

Honestly, I think running any pedal is smarter with a power supply. Why waste batteries, you know?
Try it, I dare you!

One battery charger is cheaper than 10 power supplies.
