    Did you check the battery? If so check the input/ouput jacks and see if anything's loose.

    The switches are crap, but those things die suddenly when the battery drops below a certain point. No warning, just death.

    I use mine with an Ibanez brand power adapter, and it's never given me trouble. Sometimes when you stomp it, it doesn't turn on, but you just need to break in the springs a bit and you've got a good switch.
