Why should it run weaker, what does it run on originally?

Don't run it on 300mA, you could damage it possibly. Try to get a stronger power adapter, they are available in bigger electric stores.

2000mA

then the 300mA will likely be too weak to drive the POD.
Important thing is that you get the voltage right and a capacity of 2000mA or more.

You could test your original power adaptor on an effects pedal to see if that's what's broken. They usually don'r crave more than 500mA so the one that came with the POD would be suffucien.

I used to have one of the Red PODXts. It fell from about 2 meters high and it didn't turn on after that. I took it to a electrician and he fixed it!

Have faith! biggrin.gif
