Mxr M87 Bass compressor makes no sound
I connected my bass to a Sadowsky Outboard preamp then to the Mxr M87 and it stopped working. It made a noise like a dead battery, although it was connected to a 1spot, then no more sound came from it. All the lights turn on. And no sound.

Have you tried powering it with a battery instead, or a different power supply?

When you hook up the M87 to power, the M87's meters should peak and then come down. Hit the footswitch and see if the blue led lights up. If not, your adapter may not be working or it isn't connecting properly (I've had that issue using a boss adapter).
Re-reading your question and maybe it's your cables. Try going from preamp to your amp and ensure it's fine, remove the connection to your preamp and put it into your compressor. If no signal, it is your compressor giving you some grief. As bongo said, try a battery. If you have a signal, it may be your cable going from the preamp to your compressor.

Thanks guys. I connected it directly to the compressor and nothing. Also, when it turns on, all the lights go ip as usual. I stomp on it and the blue light goes on but mo sound. I play on bypass and it sounds perfectly.

Sounds like cabling. Try it by itself, no other pedals in the chain.

Okay. Bass to pedal, pedal to amp. On bypass it sounds normally, could it be cabling?

Did you try a different power supply yet?
It could be the cables somehow, but that seems unlikely.

I'll check with a battery today.

Same thing with the battery. It's going back!

If it works fine when turned off its not the cables. Sometimes defects happen. Trade it in for another.
