POG2 Glitching out?

    So on my SKB PS-45 pedalboard i have my POG2 running off of the 9V feed. this has been working properly for a while now (like 6 months) but recently it has started glitching out. as in the lights flash rapidly, on and off. i can still bypass the pedal, but when i was playing last Saturday at a gig, the glitch happened and it rendered it useless... which meant my intrical part was not heard. *pouts*

    i only started getting this problem when i instigated a Tech 21 Leeds pedal into my setup. my set up runs: POG2-> And Aardvarks! boost-> Leeds-> M9. i doubt using the Leeds is what caused the glitch, but i didn't know if anyone else has had the same problem with their POG2.


    this happens at random, but when it does, i can't even get it to turn on properly. also, i've tried using an independent power supply with no avail.

    now i'm actually considering purchasing an Eventide Pitchfactor. *folds arms across chest* just when i wanted the highly-desired Space Reverb!

    you probably already checked this... but I've had this happen before with my POG2 and found the 9v wasn't firmly connected.
  3. the pogs have a very high MA requirement, the combination of pedals might just be sucking more power that your supply can give.

    I always power my pog II with its own power supply

    well, i pulled the 9V tab up for a better contact and the pedal seemed to work... up until last night at practice!

    i'm going to try a dedicated power supply with the recommended 180MA. the reason i'm confused is that it's been working fine for months and all of the sudden it starts glitching out. i just hope this solves it...
  5. If you're daisy chaining the power, the POG might not be getting enough (some pedals are fussy and like to either have a psu to themselves or for you to use something with more juice like a Pedal power brick).

    Depends on your power supply. I power 16 pedals including a POG2 with a 1 spot.
