Maybe you plugged an AC adapter into a DC jack or vice-versa?

hmm...
I think what happend is that you've fried your wires in the DC port...
(assuming it was inside of the AX3000G if not disregard)

might of blown a transistor or something inside it which has burnt out the board.

You had to have mistakenly used the wrong adaptor without noticing. There's no way you'd fry the thing using the factory adaptor.
#8
didn't it know that smoking is bad for your health?
check if there's any warranty left on it. either from the store or the factory.

No im 100% certain i didnt plug the wrong adapter in theres only two that could fit in it and one wasnt plugged in. im gonna try plug it back in a few minutes see if it does it again it wasnt a lot of smoke just a small amount but you could smell the burning

It had to be the wrong adaptor. A couple years ago I mistakenly plugged a 10V adaptor when I needed a 9V and I pretty much immediately noticed that burning rubber smell and unplugged it right away. Luckily I noticed what I did in time, didn't fry the pedal or anything.

If you're 100% certain it was the right adaptor, maybe try plugging it in one more time and see what happens. If you notice a problem, just return it.
#12
Whatever you do, don't open it up and try to look for what the problem could be or what happened, you'll void the warranty (if it is new and still under warranty.)
#14
right turns out i was wrong i plugged in the lead for my M-audio black box which says 9v but is 1000 m/a instead of the korg which is 9v and 600m/a

I plugged it in with the right adapter and it works i must of took it out before it had chance to do any lasting damage

You should get one of those power strips. I know the AX3000G doesn't have an on/off switch, so you could keep it plugged in all the time and just turn it on/off with the power strip. That way, you don't have to worry about possibly mixing adaptors in the future.
#17
I normally only have the korg adapter plugged in i forgot that i had been using the black box earlier on

also i plugged in the korg adapter just before i plugged in the maudio one and the screen lit up but with nothing on the screen I thought that was weird as the adapter wasnt plugged in and it was the reason i though i had plugged the wrong adapter in if that makes any sense

you could always also try putting on colored tape or anything that makes it very obvious.

hopefully you only burnt the isolation off of some cabels inside the thing. as long as you don't make them move, you should be fine. maybe just clip a ground wire on there to be on the safe side? :P

That should not be a problem as long as the polarity is correct. I've only seen one pedal manufacturer say not to use an amperage over a specified amount. In general that makes no sense but they don't explain why such an unusual practice must be observed. Normally a higher ma capacity is not a problem when selecting a power supply.
#25
yeah, that's my understanding too. As long as the voltage is correct, it should still only draw 600mA, even if the adapter can supply 1000mA. That's how the little one spot adapters work to power multiple pedals. Now if you mixed up AC and DC, then you could have problems.

theres no point taking pics nothing really to see only way you can tell its burnt is because of the smell gonna ring round some places to see if i can get it repaired looking at it all i think thats happened is the solder has melted so there is no connection think it just needs a bit of solder. cant use batterys its powered by adapter only. if cant get it repaired or if its gonna cost a lot to repair im just gonna get something else instead boss gt8 line 6 floor pod xt
