Installing Batteries
Batteries are supplied with the unit. The life of these batteries may be limited,
however, since their primary purpose was to enable testing.
Insert the included batteries as shown in figure, being careful to orient the batteries
correctly.
fig.02
• When turning the unit upside-down, get a bunch of newspapers or magazines, and
place them under the four corners or at both ends to prevent damage to the
buttons and controls. Also, you should try to orient the unit so no buttons or
controls get damaged.
• When turning the unit upside-down, handle with care to avoid dropping it, or
allowing it to fall or tip over.
• Make sure the “+” and “–” ends of the batteries are oriented correctly.
• When the batteries run down, the POWER indicator gets dim. If this happens,
replace with new batteries.
• When replacing the batteries, use six AA type.
• Avoid using new batteries together with used ones. In addition, avoid mixing
different types of batteries. Doing so can result in fluid leakage.
• Battery life can vary depending on battery type.
Continuous usage time under battery power is about 20 hours with
alkaline batteries and about 8 hours with carbon batteries. (This may
vary according to usage conditions.)

Making the Connections
• When the unit is running on battery power, the power comes on when you insert
the connector plug into the INPUT jack.
• The use of an AC adaptor is recommended as the unit’s power consumption is
relatively high. Should you prefer to use batteries, please use the alkaline type.
• Noise may be produced if wireless communications devices, such as cell phones,
are operated in the vicinity of this unit. Such noise could occur when receiving or
initiating a call, or while conversing. Should you experience such problems, you
should relocate such wireless devices so they are at a greater distance from this
unit, or switch them off.
• Use a cable from Roland to make the connection. If using some other make of
connection cable, please note the following precautions.
• Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use cables that incorporate
resistors for connecting to this unit. The use of such cables can cause the sound
level to be extremely low, or impossible to hear. For information on cable
specifications, contact the manufacturer of the cable.
• To prevent malfunction and/or damage to speakers or other devices, always turn
down the volume, and turn off the power on all devices before making any
connections.
• If there are batteries in the unit while an AC adaptor is being used, normal
operation will continue should the line voltage be interrupted (power blackout or
power cord disconnection).
• Once the connections have been completed, turn on power to your various devices
in the order specified. By turning on devices in the wrong order, you risk causing
malfunction and/or damage to speakers and other devices.
When powering up:
Turn on the power to your guitar amp last.
When powering down: Turn off the power to your guitar amp first.
• Always make sure to have the volume level turned down before switching on
power. Even with the volume all the way down, you may still hear some sound
when the power is switched on, but this is normal, and does not indicate a
malfunction.
• When operating on battery power only, the unit’s indicator will become dim when
battery power gets too low. Replace the battery as soon as possible.

When using the OD-20 in dimly lit surroundings, you can confirm
memory numbers more easily by using the Lighting Pattern 2 setting.
Lighting Pattern 1 (Normal):
Only the indicator for the selected memory lights up (or blinks).
Lighting Pattern 2:
The number of indicators lighting up (or blinking) corresponds to the selected
memory number.
When MEMORY 1 is selected: Indicator 1 lights up.
When MEMORY 2 is selected: Indicators 1 and 2 light up.
When MEMORY 3 is selected: Indicators 1, 2, and 3 light up.
When MEMORY 4 is selected: Indicators 1, 2, 3, and 4 light up.
You can select the indicator lighting pattern by means of the following procedure.
1. Switch off the power.

2. While holding down the MEMORY WRITE button and the MEMORY SELECT
button, switch on the power.
• When running on battery power:
Insert the connection plug into the INPUT jack.
• When running on power from an AC adaptor:
Insert the AC adaptor plug into the AC ADAPTOR jack.
When the button is released, either the No. 1 indicator alone blinks, or all
indicators from 1 through 4 blink.
3. Press the MEMORY SELECT button to set the MEMORY indicator lighting pattern.
Lighting Pattern 1: Indicator 1 alone blinks.
Lighting Pattern 2: Indicators 1–4 all blink.
4. Press the MEMORY WRITE button.
After the MEMORY Number indicator(s) begins blinking rapidly, the setting is
stored in memory and the unit returns to its ordinary state.

Troubleshooting
The power doesn’t come on.
properly
● Is the guitar connected correctly to the
INPUT jack?
→ Check the connections again (p. 3–4).
● Is the amp’s channel switching jack
correctly connected to the OD-20’s AMP
CTRL jack?
→ Check the connections again.
* When running on batteries, the unit won't
switch on until a plug is inserted into the
INPUT jack. This helps conserve the batteries.
● Have the batteries run down?
→ Replace with fresh batteries (p. 2).
● Is the specified AC adaptor (PSA-series
sold separately) connected correctly?
→ Check the connections again (p. 3–4).
There is no sound/volume is too
low.
● Is the other equipment connected
correctly?
→ Check the connections again (p. 3–4).
● Is the volume turned down on the
connected guitar amp, effects processor,
or other device?
→ Check the settings on the connected
equipment (p. 3–4).
● Does the amp’s channel switch match
the polarity of the OD-20’s Amp
Control?
→ The OD-20’s Amp Control is shorted
when the indicator is off, and open when
the indicator is lit (p. 9).
Confirm how amp’s channels are
switched when the circuit is open or
shorted.
The volume level of the
instrument connected to INPUT
jack is too low.
● Could you be using a connection cable
that contains a resistor?
→ Use a connection cable that does not
contain a resistor.
Noise is produced.
● Is the guitar connected correctly to the
INPUT jack?
→ When you are using the AC adaptor, the
power comes on even when a connector is
not plugged into the INPUT jack. This
means that noise may be produced when
nothing is connected to the INPUT jack.
Make sure everything is connected
properly before switching on the power to
your equipment.
