bought a BOSS DD-3 Delay Pedal off eBay a few days ago.

received it yesterday and have found it doesn't work.

tried a different lead at either end in case it was them at fault. no difference.

the red light comes on so it's not the battery.

basically, the pedal works fine but...there's no delay.

anyone got any ideas what it might be??? or know how i could fix it??

it'll teach me for buying stuff off ebay i spose, but even so...any help would be ace.

Also obvious,.....but try replacing the battery. I know the red light is on, but I've bought a couple of Marshall pedals recently, and the batteries in them only lasted about 1 min (no joking)...possibly been lying about the shop for ages. The lights were on, but the effect was dying....one new battery later and all was well.

Worth trying, just in case.

boss DDs are insane for eating batteries really really quickly...

seriously, my DD6 died within 5 minutes once. and it wasnt even switched on.

goddamn boss and their lack of true bypass:P

the seller had 100% positive feedback.

he says he tested it before posting it and it was fine.

although his packing effort was notably poor.

haha, aye.

just tried it through a 9V adaptor as well. didnt work.

the boy says he'll refund me so as is well i spose.

bit gutted tho.

The market's flooded with them. You'll pick one up nae bother and if I get the DD-6 that I've put an offer in for, I'll sell you mine (DD-3) - and you can see/hear it working.
