TC electriconics X4 Looper issue

Post by GeorgeD » Wed Nov 15, 2017 8:58 pm

I have a problem I can't figure out.
I purchased the "pedal power Mondo" today. I plugged my "TC electriconics X4 Looper" into one of the 9V (or 12V) jacks. What happened was that all of the lights on the pedal and wouldn't turn off and the pedal wouldn't work. I then plugged it into one of the 9V high-current outputs jacks and that solved the issue.
My question is why that happened. Did I do something wrong or potentially dangerous for my pedal?

If this is the Ditto X4, then it should be able to be powered from any one of the four 9V 400mA outputs using one of the included all black standard barrel cables.
It should not be connected to either of the 12V outputs.
If you do use it from one of the 9V/12V sections, definately use the 9V jack but maybe be sure to not use the adjacent 12V jack for anything else in case the common ground between these two jacks was the problem.

I hope that helps!
