    Hey there -- got an OC-2 for funsies and the little black AC connector plug thing at the back wobbles. Is this normal?

    Am realizing now that I've never had a boss pedal before so can't really compare. It just kind of shifts up and down/ back and forth a bit even when not plugged in. Seems to be working ok but figured there are loads around here among you folks so wanted to ask.

    This bit..

    Does it work? Stay on when you are playing?
  3. I'm pretty sure the power connector just slides into that notch and is just held up by the bottom plate. It probably fit better when it was new, but I expect it's normal wear and fine.

    I don't KNOW, but everything I see in google supports my theory.

    Thanks for the replies! Yeah it works and stays on. I tried a google but couldn't really find anything. My terms were admittedly a bit nonscientific -- "does boss power thing jiggle" haha

    Many of my Boss pedals do same thing.
