I asked a friend to buy me a pedal while he was on a trip to another country and he didn't check if it worked before buying.
Well, now I'm stuck with a pedal that doesn't work and I can't return it or anything like that.
I figured I should probably try to fix it myself, but I don't know where to start.
So how should I go about fixing it? (it's a Hardwire TL-2)

Have you tried different batteries or power supplies?
I fell asleep on my arm once, scariest thing that ever happened to me. I thought it was kill.

Yes, I've changed the battery, and I also checked the one that it came with - that's not the problem.
Also, the bypass doesn't work either.

Cathbard: it's totally dead.
stykerwolf: from the manual: "In the event that battery power is completely depleted, HardWire pedals automatically switch into bypass"

Is it normal that the input/output are wired like this:

(matching color means they are connected)
#11
Seems like all I say on these forums, but can I has pics? Guts of the pedal, back of the board, wiring ect would be nice.
Was lacking a decent sig. Still is.

not all pedals, pedals with buffers in them require power even to bypass

i think you are talking about pedals with flip-flop switching (like Boss pedals). Any pedal with an actual mehanical bypass will work in bypass mode without power. Flip-flop switching uses a JFET-based bi-stable multivibrator circuit, so it requires power for the transistors.
