One year ago my crazy dog rushed into my rehearsal room and ripped off my BOSS FBM-1 pedal from where it was.
The pedal landed upside down on the floor and damaged the control panel.
Since that time the pedal is stopped and it's time to deal with it.
I know I can repair the FBM-1 but I don’t want to start dealing with it without the service manual.
I can’t find this for free on the web.
Can someone tell me a place where I can download the FBM-1 service manual/schematics for free?
Thanks in advance!

I'd look for cracks in the PCB, lifted traces, broken wires/jacks, etc.

You can contact Boss for the info. They used to hand out schematics upon NDS agreement. Haven't tried in the past ten years, though.

Good luck!

In fact there are 3 types of damage on the pedal, although it is not impossible to repair. What I find strange is that there are free web layouts for all Boss pedals that I know but do not exist for the FBM-1. Maybe because it's a pedal with COSM technology.

In any case, Boss should not provide this information due to changes that were made to their structure when they incorporated COSM technology.
I'll look for more on the web and if I can not, I'll go the hard way.
By principle I never touch anything without a reliable source of information.

Thanks, Geek.
