You should always check power supplies to make sure they are negative center polarity when using Boss pedals. More then likely it damaged part of the power output.

Sounds like you used a AC 9v power when you need DC. you probably fried it.

Was it a boss power pack, or just a random one you bought? For that pedal, you'd need a 9V DC pack, with negative pin in the middle, as said.

In relation to the pedal, you'll have to open it up to see if you have blown many components. If you can find the ones that are blown, they should be replaceable. You could do it yourself if you know about electronics, or if not, a good guitar tech should be in the know about it.

Considering the effort you'd likely have to put in to fix it, you might as well just buy a new one.
