  • Boss DD-3 won't shut off

    I guess this is a better problem then it not turning on at all. I'm assuming this just has something to do with the switch itself, but i figured I would ask to be sure. Is this something that I can fix quickly myself?

      I like delay, but not that much.

        Always without desire we must be found
        If its deep mystery we would sound
        But if desire within us be
        Its outer fringe is all that We shall see

              sounds like a mechanical error, get yourself a circuit board mounted spdt and fire up the soldering iron.

              or, call Ghostbusters

                      it may be the switch, try taking the back off when its unplugged and finding the two points on the back of the board the switch is connected too. plug it every thing back in and place it upside down with the back of the case of, then short the two points with a piece of wire or aligator clips (it only has to be for a moment) to connect them and it should switch the pedal on or off every time you do this. If this solves the problem you need a new switch which can be ordered from small bear electronics unless im mistaken.

                        I went to see Richard The Third starring Kevin Spacey at the BAM theater last night and you were there, I waved and said I loved you in Phantoms. You did not wave back or acknowledge me, I thought we were homeboys but I guess not. Also you're much shorter in person.

                        Love

                          First off, make sure you're not in "hold" mode... then open the battery compartment and try pressing the switch with your finger. Sometimes, when the switch is on its way out, it will work when pressed completely down, but not when the battery compartment lid is doing the pushing.

                          Shorting the two contact points on the back of the switch, like smooff suggested, will definitely tell you if the electronic switching bit works as it should. Depending on how long the wires to the switch are, you might be able to get at it from the battery compartment (press the two small latches on the switch and carefully pull it out).

                          Also, what happens when you pull the cable from the input jack? The pedal should shut down, and then when you insert the cable again, it should power up in bypass mode. Assuming that the switch is broken, you should then not be able to turn it on. If the pedal turns on fine but just won't turn off, something's up with the electronics...
