Check your power source or battery. The sound is probably due to the internal processor recycling due to watchdog timer. If power is OK, then service will be necessary to repair the problem.

DId you remove the plug from the input jack to turn the pedal off? If so then you may have a bad input jack.

My Boss Digital delay pedal won't stay on unless I keep my foot on it.


This is likely a failing switch under the pedal. Either the toggling mechanism is broken in it or if it is a momentary type it probably has "contact bounce" that exceeds the what the de-bounce circuitry can handle.

Find a local handyman, preferably one with electronics skills as well. Sounds like you need one that knows adhesives... DO NOT use super glue for any of this repair... it is too brittle and will soon break again.

Use epoxy for broken parts... JB Weld is pretty good.

Ive got a delay ,chorus , wah ,distotion and compressor . how would i aet them in which order . thanks


Generally speaking, other than having hte compressor first to provide a consistant level to the other pedals, the order is personal preference. You need to experiment and determine the types of sounds you want. There is no "standard" order.

My boss digital delay works when engaged but no sound when not


sounds like the true bypass line has been damagd. Should be easy enough to fix. Pop open the unit and do a visual inspection first, if nothing is noticeable then do a continuity check with an ohm meter from input to output with the delay efffect off. If you don't read a short in this situation then your problem lays within the signal path and its switched path.

My Boss DD3 just beeps and nothing else when i turn it on


If you have experience with electronics you could take it apart and use a multimeter. My guess would be one of the delay chips but its something hard to diagnose without taking it apart. An audio tech could help you out. Chances are it would be a pretty cheap fix. Unfortunately Boss pedals are almost entirely surface mount so replacing a component or two takes more skill than the average pedal.

My boss dd-3 pedal only works with a 9v battery. When I hook it up to the 9v apaptor, (a boss) it freaks out and does nothing. Can you help? Everything seems solid. the jack doesn't wiggle or anything.


You will have to test the adapter with a volt ohm meter to make sure it is putting out the proper voltage. It should be as close to 9 volts as possible. Also make sure that thehole in the plug is negative and the outside is positive. Is it the right adapter? I don't have a schematic for this model but www.schematicheaven.com has one for a DD-2. Hopefully they haven't changed too much. If you decide to repair it yourself, check the adapter first then check for a bad solder joint where the adapter plug is soldered to the circuit board. Hope this helps somewhat.
