On/Off Button Stuck - DOD FX10

Postby Mustang Martigan » Sat Jul 22, 2017 6:33 am

Hey, the on/off button on my DOD FX10 pedal seems to be stuck; I can't activate the pedal. I'm not too familiar with how this button operates, but it seems like there must be some kind of spring inside that popped out of place or needs to be replaced. Before I open up the pedal (there are two Allen wrench screws on the top part of the button), I'm looking for some advice on how to fix this problem.

Thanks,
Adam

Right so the tact switch itself is supposed to make a click and when it gets worn out it will feel like clickless. If you open the pedal see if you can short the connection the tact switch is supposed to make and you'll know if it is faulty/ needs to be replaced.

There is a web site on vintage DOD pedals that was inspired by the old Bossarea web site. It has lots of info on the pedals, including tech info:

I have a DOD FX10 that looks just like yours. I bought it brand new and it came with a copy of the schemo that is identical to this one:

Mind you, this same schemo came with every FX10 pedal since 1983. Here are a couple of images of the guts to compare:

circa 1983

circa 1988

My FX10's switch' action is exactly as you described: it does not really travel much. No stomping required in order to engage or disengage the effect.

I've had this before. Dismantling and liberal contact cleaner fixed it.
