So I got a Dunlop Crybaby for Christmas but I have a dilemma, it won't work for me. I connected both wires and put in the correct battery. The switch works but when I actually attempt to use nothing happens. What did I do wrong? (model Gcb-95 by the way.)

Batteries probably dead.
Try switching it out for a new one.
Also with a brand new cry baby you need to click it down really hard.
Dont stand on it just give it some force.
If that doesnt work then get a power supply.
If that doesnt work then return it for a new one.
My gear so far:

-Cort KX5 (pearl white)
-Crybaby Wah
-Danelectro Cool Cat
-Fender Twin Reverb 65' Reissue
-Hardwire TL2

WOAH!!! HI FIVE!! I got the same Crybaby for Christmas aswell! I love it. I had the same problem. This is what I did: Make sure you amp is turned off, okay. Now get a lead running from oyur amp into the crybaby. if there was a lead in the crybaby, take it out. Put it back in and do the same on the other side (put lead into port). Then pluhg lead into guitar. Now turn on the amp and see if it works.

If not, I do have one more theory. try turning the amp off again, and swap the leads positions. (For example, if the lead connected to your amp was placed in the port to your right, move it to your left, and move the one connected to your guitar to the right. Now turn the amp back on And I hope it works for you!

I Hope that was a little bit helpful at least. If not just fiddle with the volume settings.

Cheers!

Yeah it sucks pushing down that hard. Have the crybabys always been that hard to push?

Yea you definetly have to stand up and push them down to work.
They do get alot easier after some use though thats for sure.
When you get the pedal broken in it will be much smoother and easier to activate.

Mine never got easier. I just replaced it with a 3PDT switch and put it a little higher than it was before.

I only had mine for a few months before I replaced the switch so I guess that could be it.

Probably.
Did that switch make a difference?
How much did you get the switch for?

Yea, it's a lot easier to turn on now. Maybe a little too easy but it doesn't bother me.

Buy the switch here for $4. http://www.pedalpartsplus.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=PPP&Product_Code=9000&Category_Code=SWI

Something I just found out...
There is little rubber pads on either side of that switch on the pedal part.
If you slice off about a 1/4 of a inch off the pads then the pedal is 100% easier to click on and off.
I am so happy I found this out!
Its so much easier now!
