  • Magicstomp not working. Need advice.

    So my Magicstomp won't turn on anymore. I plug the adapter in and, instead of powering up, nothing happens. Hasn't been plugged in to a different adapter or dropped or anything. Just one day it worked fine and the next day, nothing.



    So, what should I do here? Does this sound like something your common local electronics repair guy could fix or should I contact Yamaha about them fixing it or do I just suck it up and buy another one? What say you HCFX?

      If you haven't done anything to damage it then maybe the power supply has just gone kaput and not the actual unit.

          This happened to mine, and it was a broken solder inside the wall wart. Might be your problem.

            Is there anyway to check the wall wart?I mean, I don't have any other pedals that take 12vac 1000mA. Should I take it to my local Radio Shack and see if they can test it, or is there a simpler method?

              You could take it to radioshack or you could buy a multimeter and test it yourself.

                Probably the adapter. Those aren't easy to find, either. Radio shack may have some adjustable one with a bunch of different tips, but that won't last too long. Also, don't listen to anyone that works at radio shack.



                Try bending the tip of the adapter right next to the pedal. I have to tape one of mine at a certain angle to get it to work now.

                  Get a multi meter and check your power supply. My Magicstomp lost its display so i sent it to a 'digital pedal' guy. It came back worse than it started (no nothing, whereas it used to pass signal and actually work) I've ordered some display lcds from China but that was a month ago. No sign yet...

                      Should yours no longer be repairable, I'll offer mine up for sale as well. It's a Magicstomp MK2, of which I'm the original owner. It's in extremely-clean like-new condition, (Very lightly used) with the original box/packing materials/manual/CD ROM/power supply, etc. The only thing missing is the USB cable. PM me if you or anyone else here has any interest.

                          You should just design a new one considering you must be a software engineer to understand how to dial that bull**************** in.

                              Hey guys, thanks for the offers. I may be in touch soon. I'm still hoping it's just the power supply on mine. I tried bending it a bit, but no dice. I am going to take it somewhere that has a multimeter to check, but I've been so busy these past couple of days, I haven't had a chance. Hopefully, tomorrow...
