I brought a tubescreamer a few months ago. Now when i press the pedal to turn it on, the led comes on but the sound is exactly the same as when its off.

So when its activated it sounds the same as bybassed.

Has anyone else encountered this?

Thanks

If it was the battery the light wouldn't come one. Electronics 101. Probably a bad wire/solder joint.

I'm not the best with schematics, but from what I can tell, the problem is after the LED but before the clipping circuit. Which TS is it?

Most likely this.
Unless you plugged a wrong power source into it.
