BOSS DD-3 repair help
I have a DD-3 pedal, always worked, but I hadn't used it in a while due to not being in a band. So I decided to set up my pedal board and do some trimming and what not and noticed the DD-3 has stopped giving out sound. Now, the direct out works, and if I crank my amp I can hear the AC hum.
One forum said it was underpowered, and the user manual also says this. However it was running off AC power. It's a multi-voltage power adapter set to AC 9V and all my other Boss pedals work with it. I do believe the DD-3 takes quite some power though so maybe the current is lacking.
Anyways I've ordered a Boss PSC-100 to plug into my BCB-60 (No idea how I lost the original power supply, probably gig gremlins) and hopefully that will work, but in the mean time, I've taken off the bottom of the DD-3 to have a peek inside.
To remove the PCB completely you have to take off the pots, and right now I cba completely dismantling something that can be solved with just the correct PSU. However I pulled the PCB a bit and looked inside and I couldn't see any wires soldered onto the output port. On the other side of the coin though, I couldn't see any wires that didn't connect to anything and there is one side of the port I couldn't see without totally dismantling it.
I was wondering if anyone else had experience in this, and might be able to share some wisdom? I really don't want to lose this pedal, I love it's clean cut digital feel and the space-y tones you get out of it.
