so guys, a have a gig soon, andthe power supply i use for my pedal is not working. this is because i took it once to my electronics class and some guy put a resistor in the output and the capacitor inside discharged. Since that day it hasn't worked, and i some other guy lent me his power supply. But he just came and asked for it because he needs it for his new band, so i need this fixed. How can i recharge the capacitor?

Grab a 9volt battery. Find two lead cables made out of copper, connect one of the lead cable to the positive and one end to the negative. Open up your pedal and make sure you know the positive end and negative of the capacitor. With the end of the leads touch negative to negative and positive to positive.

a cap isnt like a battery, it doent just sit there and hold charge. it sounds like the guy did more than just discharge the cap. probably shorted something to ground.

why not just stab him and use what's in his wallet to buy a new power supply..?

This. A discharged cap isn't your problem, either something blew or you have a lose connection.

What I wanna know is why he put a random resistor in?

The guy most likely blew out a transistor or something of the sort because a capacitor will recharge right when the pedal is turned on.
