I don't have any electrical expertise. Though, I'd check for continuity through the circuit, and narrow your way down through each solder point. If there's no problems, check back here again.

I repaired some stuff at my school and one computer went down like you described it - it worked for some time then it just failed . I replaced condesators and it started to work normaly.
Try to replace them, or check solds at them.
It can be anything else anyway. Get a multimeter and check everything...what else can you do...

got it. i've marked some soldering points, and one big one. there's the two resistors that u can pick which one u use for the indicator LED's blinking light OR static light right? u got both of'em on.

and make sure those loose leads on the components don't touch anything, and put on the PCB standoff thing so u don't short against ur pot.

We Repair AND Modify Guitar Effect Pedals. For every defective effect pedal, I have a chance to repair it and make it come back to LIFE!!! Also for selected pedals, I can make it sound beefier, or smoother, or creamier, or warmer, or in short, "Better". True bypass modification is THE ONE for all effect pedals. When your pedal is off, it's off. You don't need to suffer from any loss of tone.

^it differs with every pedal.

flip the chorus upside down, and screw the pot one way all the way. then turn ur amp on with ur guitar going through ur chorus, and keep scratching ur strings with ur left hand. turn the screw hole really slowly. at one point, you should hear the chorus.

ummmm well trim pot should have three lugs... and they should fit pretty clean through three of the five holes i can see around it. the outer three that is. the top one, and the two bottom ones. not the two middl eones.

are the ICs plugged in the right direction?


and what john asked was:
did u solder in the IC socket WITH the IC already plugged in? socket is for soldering without the IC, and not get the IC exposed with too much heat. it will fry it.
