    So, this evening I was setting up a new pedalboard with an isolated power supply, and one of the pedals' on light does not work when hooked up to the power supply. The effect itself does work though. If I use it with the battery, the light works.

    The effect is a Boss Bass Chorus CE-2B (10mA).
    The power supply is a TrueTone 1Spot Pro CS6, the minimum current listed on any of the 6 outputs is 100 mA (and up to 500 mA).

    Do any of you know why this would be and how I can get it to work with the power supply?

    The older boss pedals worked with the boss specific 12v ACA adapter. If you daisy chain it with 9v it will work, or if you use a battery it should pop right on. Your CS6 is isolated which is why the LED is not working. If you got a double daisy chain cable to power two low 9v pedals from one outlet, including the boss, it should come right on.

    Problem with my Boss chorus pedal

    Thanks! Two of the outputs on the CS6 are switchable to 12V and that did the trick!
