I just got this Maxon OD808 from ebay. When I got a chance to use I tried it with my 5150 II as a booster. It did not seem to get the sound I was looking for. I was expecting more "umph" in my sound. So I went around looking for settings on line. I tried those and was supposed to be getting an "umphy" sound. So I figured "Maybe it was the amp!" So I plug it into my Pod XT and see if it gives different results on there. I compared it with the "screamer" stomp and it seemed really weak. The strat has a thin sound for metal but the "screamer" setting on the PodXT gave more of a boost than the Maxon. The Maxon did not provide as much as a boost as the "screamer" stomp on the PodXT. I used the same setting from the setting on the screamer as on my OD808. Also since my other guitar is in the shop. I had to use my crappy starter "strat".

Give it to me straight. Do I need to repair my baby?

Do you use a power adapter?

If not, change batteries, or maybe the input where you put the power adapter is broken, and then, yes, you're going to have to fix it.

I do not use a power adapter. I will try changing the batteries. Where should I send it to get it fixed if that doesn't work?

The only problem is I don't know what is wrong with it. Does anyone have an idea where I should send the thing?
