So I got this baby about 2 months ago and it's awesome. I have 2 cables, one for each side. Now for some reason the sound wont come out of the amp unless I take out the pedal and use one cable, like an amp without a pedal. But if I hook the pedal back up and plug in both cables it doesn't want to play. The pedal light turns on and I've tried both cables alone and they work. What's going on? And if it helps, the two 9 volt batteries I had ran out so today morning I put them in the freezer to see if they'll charge a little just to test out the theory. It seemed to work for one of the batteries as the light of the pedal turned on. But when I turned on the amp the pedal ran out. So I waited and tried again. It worked a little but when I turned on the amp it was out for some reason. This time the damn sound wont come unless I only use one cable and take out the pedal. The first time it was fine but the second, that is when this happened.

make sure youve got it set up the right way, remember you plug pedals in right to left, not left to right

amp--------pedal---------guitar


Edit: i totally did this at guitar center, and felt like such a duesche when the guitar center worker dude came over and was all like, do you want some help getting that to work right sir?? at which point he yanked out both cords and put them in their correct positions

Sex her, take the guitar, then sex her mom and have her walk in on you. Then, mom is happy, she doesn't want to be your friend anymore, and you keep the geetar. It's a win win for America!

Yeah their like that. Their the in the right way. I plugged in batteries that were dead and it seems to work but it's stupid having a dead battery just so I can play the guitar without a pedal but have it plugged in. Is there still like some problem? It was never like this.

Put some new batteries in. The logic isn't the difficult.

yeah dude, the pedal isnt broken. Just get a NEW battery...or an adapter. Theyre expensive , but you only have to buy it once. Batteries you have to buy every 5-8 hours of play time, which gets expensive.

5-8 hours? I've had batteries last up to a year and I practice at least an hour a day...are you unplugging the input when you're done playing?
#13
^ yeah dude no joke. Some pedals suck up more batteries then others. The Digitech Digidelay provides just a few hours of battery life.
#14
Some take more than others but...5-8 hours? That's really extreme. Glad I don't have a digidelay.
#15
yeah dude. well its not that bad if you think of it as like if you were to play with the pedal on for 5-8 straight hours, i mean...its only one 9v battery.

New batteries, but have you turned the level/volume on the TS up?
