Is the pedal actually plugged into your rig? A lot of pedals won't turn on unless they have cables connected to them.

i have tryed it connected to my rig and i have now tryed it with an adapter.I guess it just doesnt work so i am taking it back.

also would using an adapter that has the opposite polarity blow it up?

the guy ask me if i wanted to but i said no because i already knew what they sounded like and i didnt think he would be selling something that was broken

Can you take it back?

I was going to say, that shouldn't be possible, but I thought you got it at GC. But I looked and you just said a local music store. That's not good. There's a chance they won't take it back, but you should still try anyway.

It's a real pain in the ass to fix pedals.
