So my distortion pedal got messed up and I'm curious if there's a way to fix the problem with it. First off it's a cheap Washburn Lyon pedal from Target. It was a decent pedal that served it's purpose until it started to malfunction, and I got a new better pedal. The problem I now have with it is that if I knock the pedal, plug the AC in a certain way, or just simply stomp the pedal to turn it on/off it will start hissing and get super loud and epic feedback. To stop it from hissing I have to wiggle the AC adapter a bit to turn off the loud hissy sound.

Is there a DIY way to fix this problem?

I think you should just get a new one, or get a new power adapter. How much was the pedal anyways?

Idk I bought it 5 years ago. I don't think it's the adaptor, it works fine on other pedals, just not on this one, and the same thing happens when I use a 9v battery, the only difference is that I can't fix the hissing sound when it's bumped with the battery.

I'm just curious if there's a way to fix it at home.
