Why won't my display turn on my Zoom 707II guitar pedal?

The display won't turn on but I can hear the output and change the effects with the pedals.

SOURCE: Static Noise from guitar amp.

I take it you have made sure that both the cable to the distortion box from the guitar and the cable to the amp are both good. From the description you give, it sounds like there is no signal getting to the pedal. If the cable is good, then the next likely suspect would be the input jack on the fuzz box. Try wiggling it a little with the guitar cable in place to see if it is loose. Some input jacks are unbelievably cheap and flimsy. A crackling sound (static like) is almost always a bad connection. If it was the output jack, I would think that the guitar signal would come through a least a little bit, but you might want to try wiggling that one, too, if the input jack isn't the culprit.

Another possibility to check is the battery, but this doesn't seem as likely. Some effects units devour batteries, especially units that use 9V batteries. I have a multi effect pedal that kills a 9V in about an hour.

SOURCE: The correct order for Effects pedals.

Input guitar into the tuner then whammy type effects last into distortion effects then to the amp input.

SOURCE: my zoom 505 2 distortion pedal for my guitar will

I have had this same problem with mine, since the adapter jack is loose it's probably broken loose from the circuit board inside. I had to carefully dis-assemble and re-solder the adapter jack back to the circuit board. This is un-fortunately a weak point on some of Zoom's pedals, when you or if you get someone who is good at soldering to do it for you ask them to beef the solder joints up a little to help keep it from coming loose again. I re-did mine and I've never had another problem with it.

No, when you plug into the power amp in that disconnects the feed-through of the preamp.

How can I mix the sound of the Zoom A2 and the dry sound of the guitar?

the easiest way to mix less effect sound and more natural guitar sound is to reduce the level of the individual effects within the patch selected. The more challenging method would be to go through a splitter box 1st, or any stereo effects box, to split the signal, and then you will have 2 outputs, one dry, one through the Zoom. The 3rd (and simplest ) method would be to place the Zoom in the effects loop of an amp that features a send / return balance adjustment.

Line 6 how do i get it to work

Line 6 connected to AC power and LED showing power to unit. Guitar into effect input, effect output to guitar amp. Does guitar make sound through amp in bypass mode? No then check cables...yes then use foot switch to turn Line 6 effects unit on. Adjust control knobs for desired effect levels/settings.

If pedal provides no switch defective or internal electronics in need of repair.

This is for the takamine DI+. Is there a wiring diagram as to how to cable from my guitar to the amp? Basically how do you connect the DI+ using stomp boxes. Also, is their a special cable to use to...

Most of the pedals are daisy chained right from the guitar. The output of the daisy chain goes into the DI box set to ground lift. An XLR to XLR cable goes from the DI box to the amp or mixer. Do NOT try to loop the sends and receives of the amp through PEDALS! The sends and receives are LINE LEVEL which is too high for pedals. The sends and receives are for external effects MODULES and EQ's that take line level. Some of those effect units have a foot switch to turn them on and off.

Hi , i have a Bugera 1960 and my problem is send-return...when i put my boss ge-7 equalizer in it i can t hear the fx and this is the same thing for my delay pedal...i can hear but realy realy little...

The problem is the BOSS is designed to handle a guitar level at -20Db and the effects level is designed to run at either -10 Db or +4 Db. You will get better match setting the Bugerra effects to the -10 setting on the back and reducing the level... HOWEVER the pedal will want to send -20Db out which is 10 Db under what the effects return wants to see. This is a factor of three roughly in gain so the signal will be low. This is the problem using a guitar pedal in a way it wasn't designed to be used. The effects loops are looking for "line level" NOT guitar levels.

Schematics aren't going to help. The normal thing is to connect your guitar to the pedal and send the output of the pedal to the amp.

Guess what? The same things apply to your delay pedal... they are intended to accept the signal from the guitar OR the guitar like level from another pedal such as the GE7.

Yes the output jack socket can be used either to:
  • plug in a set of headphones for personal listening / practice
  • to connect to an amplifier.
The zoom pedals use either a mono or (tip and sleeve) or stereo (tip, ring. sleeve) 1/4 inch jackplug - i.e a standard guitar lead.
You should plug it into a line-level or high impedance socket on your amp. With the pedal in play mode you can adjust the output level (gain) to match the input requirements of your amp by rotating the 'Value' knob (top right)

Hi my zoom g1x fx is having some sound issues,it creates unpleasant noises and the sound kinda fades. I noticed the fading of the sound when i'm picking the thinner strings but it sounds so loud on the...

Hello. I am assuming that you are using the manufacturer supplied mains power supply and not running it from battery (otherwise replace the battery before doing anything else). I have noticed a similar problem occasionally with my Zoom G1XN too - mostly when I have been using it with headphones plugged directly into the pedal. Sometimes gently wiggling the output jack plug seems to have solved the problem - however I have had it occur when using the pedal with an amp too. Next step would be to try using different jack leads (or swapping the ends round) to make sure it is not a problem with poor contacts in the sockets. If this seems to solve the problem a little squirt of switch cleaner in the sockets wouldn't go amiss - but leave it 24 hours to dry out before using again. Do you find it only happens on some patches or on all of them? I have one patch that is absolutely clean (straight through with every effect set at flat/zero). Try that with one patch and see if it still does it and to give you a quick comparison. However, I think there may also be a bit of a problem with the effects processor itself (either in the design or the circuitry) - let's face it the GX1 is a modestly priced unit and they probably keep the price down by using cheap components. My usual solution has been to switch it off and remove all the plugs and start again. This has worked but is kind of annoying if it happens in the middle of a gig or half way through recording a song. Lastly I would try re-calibrating the expression pedal. as follows
  1. Turn the unit off
  2. Hold down the PEDAL ASSIGN button whilst turning on the power/ inserting input jack-plug.
  3. Raise the expression fully and press the STORE key (display should read "UP")
  4. Push the pedal down as far as it will go, until it hits the stop, and then release it (it will return slightly at this point)
  5. Press the STORE button again.
  6. If the display reads "Er" repeat the process from step 3 above.

Hello I have this pedal too and have experienced similar problems..
If you are using battery power only use Duracell Ultra (or equivalent) never re-chargeable batteries. However I am assuming you are using the mains power adapter rather than batteries.
Start by eliminating external issues. Change your guitar lead and output lead - if you don't have spares swap them over or swap the ends round to make sure it is not a contact issue in the jack sockets.
I found this problem occurred most often when I was using headphones plugged directly into the pedal rather than an amp. I was usually able to solve it by wiggling the output jack plug slightly so came to the conclusion that it was just a poor quality plug or socket.
Having said that I think that there might be a bug in the processor unit itself because I have occasionally experienced the problem when playing through an amp. I resolved it by unplugging everything and starting again but this is a bit annoying either during a gig or half way through a recording session.
Does it do it on every patch or only on some? I have one patch that is completely clean (straight through) with no effects, noise reduction, boost, with the tone set at flat. You could try setting a patch like that up as a comparison and see if it still does it.
Lastly you could try recalibrating the expression pedal.
  1. Unplug the input jack to turn the unit off.
  2. Hold down the pedal assign button whilst plugging the input jack back in.
  3. The display should read 'dn'
  4. Raise the pedal fully and press the store key
  5. The display now reads 'UP'
  6. Push the pedal fully down to the stop and then release it (it will return slightly)
  7. Press the store key again
  8. Job done (unless the display reads 'Er' - in which case repeat from step 4)
