Bought a digitech rp355 went to set it up but i have no sound
If the unit is in bypass mode, the display will indicate "BYPASS" That would bypass the RP355. You might try that to see if the problem is with the 355.
You might also have issue with the output being essentially low Z out if it is plugged into a High Z input.
Are you using the unbalanced 1/4 inch guitar jacks or the XLR? Is the XLR wired correctly? If not it may be grounding out the input.
If your eurozone power pack is the correct polarity on the coaxial power plug, the unit should light up. If it is not even doing that- check the polarity as it may be reversed from what you need. As long as the the output voltage and current is close to what the American power supply output current is- molded into the power pack, there should be no issue there if polarity of coaxial plug is correct. It should behave and respond to the various setting displyed on the RP unit.
Is it plugged into a computer? Did the computer recognize the driver? Is there a software conflict? If you have a windows machine, you can open the device manager and see if there is a yellow X or yellow question mark on the device- if so the driver either did not install, or there is a software conflict. you may need to to enable the audio for that input in "Audio Properties" in the control panel of the PC. If a mac- make sure it is selected under "Chooser".
In short- you should be able to plug your guitar into the unbalanced input of the RP, and then you can run a cable from the RP unbalanced output to the guitar amp. There are 5 different lengths of 1/4 inch jack in use- make sure yours are the right length for the amp, and the RP.
in bypass mode, the guitar should be heard, you can put the unit in bypass mode by pressing the up and down keys at the same time. Also make sure the amp is not in standby or muted either. These things can happen. It should work, it shoudl light up, it should give you visual indication something is or should be happening.
