Crybaby Wah won't Wah Wah

Postby Mustang Martigan » Sun Jan 14, 2018 3:03 pm

I have a standard GCB-95 Crybaby Wah that's been working great for years.. then all of a sudden it's got issues. It works fine when bypassed/disengaged, but puts out no sound at all when clicking it into wah mode. These symptoms first started last night. When I woke this morning I tried it out, and it was running like a well oiled machine. I took a break for an hour or so and when I returned it wasn't working again. I've been messing around with all the possibilities.. bad chord, bad battery (I don't have the 9V power supply/wall wart), bad guitar, etc. Everything minus removing the circuit board and nothing helps.

Anyone out there familiar with this problem and how to fix it? Or some suggestions on troubleshooting that I haven't touched on?

Thanks,
-Adam

Have you opened it up to check for any loose wires?
I could be the switch too, you would need to check for continuity with a multimeter to see if it works properly.
If you don't maybe a friend has one?

If you use the continuity check function, you test each wire at the one end and on the other one. You simply use the probes without regarding if it's the black or red one - doesn't matter in this case.

Is it possible for you to send a detailed picture of the circuit board (preferably the solder side) and the other components inside your wah pedal?

That diagram isn't the right one, a stock rev. C doesn't have true bypass switching. Your switch should only have 3 wires on it.
Green, purple and blue most likely. The green wire goes to the input of the pedal, if you measure between here and for instance the purple, your meter should read continuity.
If not, press the pedal switch, it should have continuity now. If not, the switch is likely broken, it should switch between the 2 legs with the purple and blue wires.
Posting a picture here is a good idea.

If I were you I would check with a proper power supply if the pedal still works. So far you have only tried it with batteries, right? If you apply too much tension to the battery snap and cord, it will break someday. I've seen that here and then.
