If you have ever tried to research this error message and found that there is no real answer to this, it is because "mdsper" is a general error message that can be the result of a few things. It seems to be a senseless thing to do until you realize that if you were Digitech, this would be a boon to your service department when these things go out of warranty.

Most commonly, it can show up if the internal battery needs to be replaced. As you know there is an internal battery in order to store patches in memory. Well, these things tend have (in my experience) a life of between 3-8 years, but can last longer if the pedal isn't used much.

It could also be that a power surge could have knocked out the memory in the main chip, rendering the pedal completely useless.

Another common situation is that many people use a non-factory power supply (wall wart) and often it may have the correct voltage, but not the correct MaH. This mismatch can blow out the unit if too high, or cause the unit to malfunction, if too low.

You should also know that some people continue to do the factory reset procedure until it "takes". So sometimes continuing to try the reset procedure could lead to success. You may wish to try and reset it quite a few more times (maybe 20?), then, if you have the correct power supply and are sure that is not the problem, you may wish to switch the internal battery yourself. Apparently it is an easy replacement. The one thing i do not know is the battery information and where to obtain it aside from going directly to Digitech. I am confident you could find it cheaper through another source. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Won't reset to default. I get the AL message,,,then ot...then Gn.

Is this zoom G1N / G1XN? Try using the battery.
If the result is the same,there is a possibility of damage to the processor IC (ZFX3). But before be sure, try measuring the voltage as in the image below :

25895299-xykdzr1cdriwl1tmr4ngy0qt-3-3.jpg Gn error message usually appears because 1.8Volt voltage is not normal (or no voltage at all), and it is caused by damage ic ZFX3.

My rp90 reads out pd when i plug it in and is stuck in this pd mode and doesnt let me play anything how do i unstuck it from this pd mode

Try a factory reset. This is the procedure
1. Press and hold the Store button while powering up the RP90.
2. When the display prompts you with FR, release the Store button.
3. Press and hold the Store button for 3 seconds until RS appears in the display and release. The Factory Reset procedure takes approximately 10 seconds.
4. Once the factory reset has finished you will need to calibrate the Expression Pedal.

How to reset the pedal 25 ME? thank you.

You can restore the settings in the ME-25 (memories, tuner

reference pitch, and knob response method) to the values set when

the unit was shipped from the factory.

Performing a factory reset causes all settings saved in memory to be

lost. If you want to keep the memory settings, use the ME-25 Librarian

(p. 11) to save them on a computer.


Hold down [EXIT] and press the MEMORY DOWN

pedal at the same time.

"FA" appears in the display.


Press [WRITE].

The Tuning Guide flashes.


Press [WRITE] again.

The display flashes and the factory reset is executed.
Never turn off the power while factory reset is in progress.

The Sustain pedal does not work.

When push comes to shove, a factory reset never hurts.

Assuming you'd like to proceed with a factory reset, follow these steps:

This procedure makes it possible to restore the S08 to the original factory-installed Internal Voices, Multis and System settings.

WARNING: The current settings for all Multis and User Voices will be deleted. If the current settings and data are not expendable, create a backup before executing the Factory Reset.

1) Press the [UTILITY] button.

2) Press the [JOB] button. The 'FactorySet' screen will be displayed.

3) Press the [ENTER] button. The 'Sure?' message prompt will appear.

4) Press the [INC/YES] button to execute the Factory Reset. The 'Completed!' message will be displayed to indicate the procedure has been successfully executed.

5) Press the [EXIT] button to return to the Utility Mode.

Can a keyboard synthesizer play thru the DigiTech RP2000 to receive the effects by connecting to the midi in?

The short answer is NO. The MIDI connection does NOT carry audio, only commands. You must connect synth audio outputs to the inputs of the RP2000 and use the audio coming out of the RP2000 to have the effects.
