Hey guys. I probably got a noob questions here about Analog Delay pedals but recently I'm starting to notice an annoying noise problem with my MXR Carbon Copy Delay. I bought this pedal almost 2 years ago and today when I was playing guitar I noticed an annoying background noise the pedal made when it was turned on. When they pedal was on, without me even playing anything, the pedal would create this feedback in the background that sounded very distorted. The noise would stop when I turned the pedal off but even after I unplugged everything and turned off my amp then back on I would eventually still get the feedback. Is there something wrong with the electronic components of my MXR pedal or is this just something usual that happens with analog delay pedals?

Is it on AC or DC? If DC, check the battery,


I've been using a normal 9V battery in it for a while. My bad forgot to say that in the first post.

Well now I feel like a dumbass , i just changed the battery for a new one and seems like the background feedback isn't coming back that easily. Well thanks man for the help, was getting worried might of been a problem with the components inside the pedal.
