    My Crybaby done broke. Not while I was using it, I just plugged in one day and it was fuzzy and crackly. I thought it was the battery, but when I replaced it there was no sound coming through the pedal. When I turned the volume on my amp up ridiculously loud, I could hear a fairly clear signal, but only bypass, no effect, not even when the pedal was rocked.
    Any ideas of what's gone wrong?

    Which model is the Crybaby?

    Open it up and check for shorts in the circuitry. There could be a loose wire in there somewhere.

    Plug it into the wall, see if that changes anything.

    You can also post pictures of its guts and maybe some of the electron doctors can help you out.

    It's a 105Q. Unfortunately I don't have a mains power supply for it, I've only ever used batteries. I have a multimeter, can anyone explain how I can use it to check the circuit?
