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: 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.

SOURCE: Bass Guitar Keeps sound keeps cutting in and out.

ya... if moving the battery around helped then all ya gotta do next time the problem appears is change the battery, i would suggest changing it every 6 hrs youve had the cable plugged in and ALWAYS unplug the cable from your bass wen ur not using it, the battery is only active when the cable is plugged in. also make sure and play it often, although tht shouldn't be a problem, if you don't the battery will leak acid and destroy your pickups

SOURCE: I have a Zoom 9000

I'm a Zoom 9000 owner (since '93, I think) Did you try batteries only? Are you plugging the guitar into the "in / power" jack and not mistakenly using another jack? When you plug in the guitar, in to the Zoom 9000 does the window come on with the settings shown? Sorry, I know some of these are obvious but always the chance of us being human. If all that seems fine, then I would read though a manual to see if maybe it is a setting problem, i.e., sound somehow got inadvertently turned off. If you don't have one, an internet search will lead you to one. Sorry, wish I knew more.

Have you tried to reset the unit? You can do this by holding save button for few seconds while connecting your adaptor to g1x/g1xn. Then the indicator will blink, then push save button again,this will reset your unit into its factory settings

Why zoom g2 point blinking ?


There is damage/burnt at Transistor Q4 or Q3 or both. Usually followed by R8. Replace it.
Q3 = BC337 (SMD marked as 6C) NPN.
Q4 = BC327 (SMD marked as 5A/B/C/D) PNP.
R8 = 470 ohm (SMD marked as 471).

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)
