    What pedal? Its probably something you can do if you know how to solder. Take the pedal apart and see where the power input is soldered and take it off and add another one. Im not sure if a store will have them (Radio Shack?) but theyre online for a few bucks if that. Don't pay someone, save lots of money by doing it yourself. There are lots of videos on youtube on how to solder and repair/build effects.

    its a zoom b9.1ut i had it for about a month then i moved it the wrong way and the plug bent the input. for about a day if i held the power chord at an angle it would power up, but not any more. i took it apart and the input was soldered to the board and it had 4 prongs coming out the other side of the board. i shouldve taken a picture of it before i put it back together. is there a specific name for the part or could i say a dc 12v input?

    I would email zoom or check out the manual. Make sure you get the right one that looks exactly the same. Did it seem difficult to unsolder and resolder a new one?
