Good evenin' all~ Kindly tell me where i can get a soft touch button switch (no traditional hard click) for this pedal... a link or  direction to Ebay or AES, or even SD, would be much appreciated. As and aside, this pedal works only when i use the juice from the wall,, nothing using a fresh battery.... I had it open a while back, & all I got was a few really quick flashes of light,,, something that I was unable to dupe on command  ... Logically, the 1st thing is to do would be to replace the battery leads,,, w/the Red going to the AC input jack, & the Black going to a lug on the input jack?
thanks in advance!!

I screwed up & accidentally knocked the black wire from the on/off switch to wherever it's supposed to go. From my pic, it looks like it goes to some contact on the input, where there are already two blacks,,, one that goes to the output, & the other to the DC & diode lug,,,:thumbd:

... and clean all that dust out of there!

That's not dust, that's the remnants of grey foam rubber used to pad the internal battery.

...look up the schematic

TS-808 schematics are widely available on the web, there's no mystery how these pedals are built. HINT: the foot switch has one terminal to ground, (as your "before" picture shows!) and the red/white wire goes to a terminal #2 on the printed circuit board.

It was foam rubber once. It's just dust now...and yes, Tubescreamer schematics are easy to find, hence my suggestion:wave:
