TS808 Reissue Owners Please Read

Just what to know if there is anything wrong with my TS808 Reissue. Well, I bought a brand new Ibanez TS808 reissue a few months ago, and all this time I've been getting a slightly "ticking noise" when I use this pedal, the noise isn't really loud, but its just there, a constant tick, lol, its there even though the pedal is switched off, at first I thought it was the leads or the battery/power supply, changed those, tried it with a different amp, and its still there, apart from that the pedal works fine, I'm just wondering should I get the pedal fixed? or is that normal with the TS808 reissues?

thanks

Is the ticking noise constant like a metronome or something?


Or does it come and go in waves, like

bleepbleep. .bleep bleep bleep, bleepbleebleeb kinda randomly, and then it will be quiet for a few minutes.

I get that second one alot, its interference from my cellphone. Easy way to see would be to turn on your amp and everything and place your cellphone near the pedal and then call your cell phone from a different phone, see if you hear that sound again.

its like a constant metronome click, like "tick tick tick tick tick", like I said before, its not loud, but you can defintely hear it when you turn the volume down, I don't know whats causing it, oh, actually I find I get the similar noise when I play with my guitar port (using different cable though), could the computer have anything to do with this? my amp is quite close to my TV and PC

Do you wear a watch while playing? I've experienced that before...

is everything plugged into the same outlet that your tv, or pc is on? That will cause noise usually. If that's the case just plug your amp into a different outlet/circuit.
