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.

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.

The foot pedal (not the switches) on my "DigiTech RP90 Modeling Guitar Processor does not 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!

Yeah I have an idea... It is likely static electric discharge. At this time of the year we get zapped touching metal things and it also drives electronics nuts... You don't even have to feel it to get zapped.

Try using in your bare feet and see if it fusses... We had a lady vocalist wearing those ugg boots and caused static pops in her microphone... anyway try the test and if it fixes the problem, then look up Staticide spray... You can get it at for example... spray floor in the area you are playing on to kill the static.

The only other thing is to check if wiggling the power input plug causes the problem. Those plugs are notorious for poor connections when they wear.

Digitech rp6

Try contacting their service center rep at (801)566-8800. They might send you a schematic for the pedal if you explain your situation. They do recommend using the original power supply PS0912 which should still be available. Hope this helps.

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.
