So, on Thursday I bought an Ibanez phat head distortion pedal. Been using it since then with a 9v adapter and having no problems at all. I also have a Zoom multi effects pedal, that I put batteries in. I've had the Zoom and the Ibanez hooked together with no problems at all.

So last night, I went and found another 9v adapter, and put it into the zoom. I only have two outlets (one for my amp, and the other for pedals), so I used an extension chord and the Ibanez pedal worked fine. The Zoom wouldn't turn on. So I changed the 9v adapters on them, and the Zoom pedal turned on, but the Ibanez didn't. So I figured, that the 9v I originally had on the Zoom wasn't working right. So I traded the 9vs again to just to see if they were still working, and this time my Ibanez wouldn't turn on. I put the working 9v on it, and it wouldn't turn on. Then I put the working 9v on the Zoom, and it won't turn on.

I went into my garage and found the volt detector thing, and the 9v is working perfectly.

So then I went back into my room, with a different 9v, and the pedals still didn't work. I then put batteries in them, the Zoom turned on, but the Ibanez isn't working STILL.

Anybody know anything I can try to get them to work? Is there some way that the 9v or the extension chord could have raped the internals of my pedals? It really pissed me off. I took the Ibanez to the music store, but they close at 5 on Saturdays and I didn't get there until 6.

Need help, not pity.
Probably best to take this to The gear and Accessories board mate.

Hmm I'm not sure, but maybe your pedal fried. Some pedals use different kinds of currents. So if you plug an AC adapter in a pedal that only supports DC current, you'll probably fry it.
