  • Digitech PDS-2000 not working properly

    My dad's singer brought me this pedal since he knows I like to work on these kind of things. Anyway, the pedal stopped working about a week ago while my dad's band was practicing; the singer said it smelled like something was burning.

    When the pedal is set to "normal," there is a constant "bumping" sound and no delay; it sounds like the pedal is cycling but I'm hearing the "bumping" sound as opposed to the signal from the guitar. Otherwise it doesn't muffle or deaden the sound.

    On any other setting the signal is sort of muffled or there is none at all, and there is no delay at all.

    I've opened it up and there doesn't seem to be any visible signs of a blown component. I was hoping the problem would be a blown resistor or capacitor so I could replace it but it's looking like one of the chips could be fried (though I'm just guessing on this).

    Any ideas as to what could be wrong?
    Delay and wah... that's almost one pedal too many.

    Not having a schematic is going to hurt.
    DigiTech has an excellent service department.
    Very reasonable rates.

      check the 1st and easiest thing the power pack for it, is it putting out the correct voltage, is it even the correct one? does it get too hot. Once power is ok'ed go from there.


      Digitech will send schematics on discontinued items.

        Power's not the problem. Already tried using a 9 volt instead of the adapter; no change. And it's been working with the same power supply for almost 10 years now. Got a schematic...

            Could be a difference

              Opened it up, cleaned some connections, now it's working fine. The thing was filthy!

              Well, the pedal is older than I am, so I guess that's to be expected.

                      The file SIZE must be changed.
