Digitech RP 90 foot switch is not working

I have a digitech RP 90 effects pedal but recently one of the foot switches just stopped working. It doesn't move the LED number on the screen when I press it but the other one works fine. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Exactly the same thing, everything, the right foot switch isn't changing the presets I have, so I can't even access the tuner.

I removed the back cover, unscrewed the two (of 4) screws holding down the circuit board, replaced them again, and it worked fine.

Check out the little switch under the foot switch. It's a little button type switch that the big lever you hit with your foot is activating. make sure it's being contacted correctly. Also check the solder joints on the PCB directly below the switch. Good Luck.

This should be a simple fix. The tactile switches are available from Digitech or any online parts supplier. As previously stated, check the switch first with a multimeter. You can also try cleaning the switches. Take tweezers or pliers and lift the small piece of metal from the top of the switch and spray some contact cleaner to the inside of the switch. This sometimes fixes the switches. If you are gigging with the pedal, get a new switch to be safe.

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 effects...off/on switch defective or internal electronics in need of repair.

My digitech rp 500 has power supply but it won't


Make sure you have the OFFICIAL Digitech power adapter. Universal adapters or those for MOST other pedals will NOT work... things may light up but you will NOT get audio. This unit requires an adapter supplying 9 VAC (not DC) at about 1 amp. These AC output adapters are not very common and people get the units without an adapter and try using universal adapters and they do not work. An AC adapter is used by Digitech so they can generate both plus and minus voltages internally. I don't know what your utility power voltage is in Cebu, so you need to get an adapter for your voltage that will give 9 VAC output and fit the power jack on the unit.

Hi I have a Digitech RP 300 Modeling Guitar Processor that lights up and will play the metronome tik but will not output the guitar, the guitar input is dead or semes to be. can any one help. thanks...


The metronome is built in software, but it proves that your output is working fine. That's good.
Try changing your patch cable from guitar>pedal. if that doesn't fix it, grab a screwdriver.
Open the pedal and check the input port - is there any bent pieces or blockages preventing the cable from contacting what it needs to? Is the solder broken, cracked, or missing? Are both contact points firm and in place?

The foot pedal (not the switches) on my "DigiTech RP90 Modeling Guitar Processor does not work...it will move but it changes nothing.


All DigiTech expression pedals use an optical system instead of potentiometers.

Either the light is broke, or the filter.

The filter protrudes from the bottom of the pedal, and is darker at the top and gradually fades to clear at the bottom. If this breaks off, then there's nothing to limit the amount of light to the optical system.

If it is the light, then you'll have to have it serviced by someone qualified to work on it. Your local music shop should be able to help you out.


Hope that helps!

When i press the harmony effect i have to hold it


Well i hope the latching mechanism isn't busted!

Check/review your parameter settings for your programs. Especially in the Expression Pedal Control areas.

From their site:

--Harmony Footswitch
This footswitch turns the harmonies on or off. While multiple harmonies can be selected within a preset, the HARMONY footswitch activates or deactivates any selected harmonies simultaneously.
When the LED above the HARMONY footswitch is illuminated, the harmonies are on. When the LED is turned off, the harmonies are turned off.

--Note: The settings for FX Footswitch Control, Harmony Footswitch Control and Guitar Sensitivity apply to ALL presets. The setting for the Expression Pedal Control applies to the current preset only. If you modify the Expression Pedal setting and wish to store it you must Store the preset (see page 11 ). When you load another preset, its setting for Expression Pedal Control will take effect.

--To perform a Factory Reset procedure
If you are editing a preset, press the Up or Down footswitch to exit edit mode.
Press and hold the Major/Minor button and then press and release the Store button. The display will read FAC RESET- WILL ERASE ALL YOUR PRESETS... , then STORE=RST.
Press the Store button again to continue with the factory reset. If you don’t want to do the factory reset, just wait 5 seconds, or press almost any other button, to cancel.

The correct order for Effects pedals.


Personally, I like to have all "tone effects", such as wahs, distortions and equalizers in front of "time effects" such as phasers, chorus, flangers and delays. See my set up in the photo. Guitar input is from right to left, starting with the wah pedal.
