Most PROBABLE is the output jack either has been broken (common due to mishandling and accidents with cables such as stepping on the plug while plugged into the pedal) or the soldering of the jack in the pedal has broken loose. Less common is a circuit board crack in the vicinity of the jack. Open pedal and inspect for the above suggestions.

Hi. I had the same problem and fixed it by clearing all the phrases. An explanation of how to do this is below (written by someone else, not me) But, expect your guide beat to now sound like a fuzz instead of a drum. This really sucks and there is apparantly no fix for the guide sound except to send it back to Boss. Good luck.
1. Start by selecting Phrase 1.
(if the 'REVERSE' or 'AUTO START' are lit press them off.)
2. Select 'INST & MIC' by pressing 'MODE'
3. Hold down 'EXIT' and 'AUTO START' together - at the same time, this should light up the green LED for 'LOOP PHASE'
4. Hold down 'WRITE' and 'EXIT' together
then hold 'WRITE' on its own
then 'WRITE' and 'EXIT' together again...as if you were clearing a phrase.
they should light up in red and flash, if not try a combo of section 4.
5. Repeat on all Phrases 1 - 11.

It is strange that it comes on when you plug into the OUTPUT... It should come on when you plug into the INPUT... could you have the jacks/plugs backwards? If cables are backwards, the bypass function will still pass your guitar backwards through the controls. You would NOT be the first person to mistake the labelling of input and output. There may be another problem of course, but do check the in's and out's. The fading out of the LED's is NORMAL when power is removed due to storage of the power by capacitors internally that bleed off.

If it does not power up, it is likely going to be a faulty or severly dirty switch contact or a failed capacitor in the power supply. A shot of contact cleaner is usually enough to rectify the first issue, The second issue you need to locate the part at fault and replace it.

in any type of situation when data is being transferred and the
connection is prematurely lost there is data lost and or file
the Boss Rc 50 to your computer and backup its entire contents to
your computer if possible.
perform a Hard Reset: While simultaneously holding down the "PLAY
MODE" and "LOOP SYNC" buttons, turn the power on.
Everything should be restored to factory settings.
your backup was successful, then you can transfer desired files (one
at time) to determine if the are usable. If a file causes errors or
malfunction, then most likely it is corrupt.
Hope this helps
