DD-20 Power Up & LCD Question

When you power up the Boss DD-20 is there any way to default so when the pedal comes on it is off? I know that you can leave it on SOS mode but I don't want to do that because that will suck tone. In addition, is there any way to keep the backlit display always on when it powers up? I love this pedal and want to make it even more user friendly. Thanks for any advice.

Yeah I wish the backlit display would just stay on, I hate not being able to see my tempo settings on a dark stage and can't reach down to press those two buttons.

As for your first question, just curious, why is that an issue? Just wondering what application you would need that feature for.....

Every time I plug my pedal board in the DD-20 is "On" in the chain with delay. I would like to have it off until I engage the pedal to turn the delay on. Sorry my original post was a bit cryptic:)

No way to have it to "off when you power up as a default as far as I know, but according to the manual, you can keep the backlit display on if you press the TAP and TEMPO button on at the same time. If you use batteries this will eat them alive, but if you use AC, go for it. I keep my display on all the time and it has worked like a charm.

Every time I power up my board I manually press both TAP and TEMPO to turn the display on. I was wondering if there is some way to program it so every time you turn it on the display comes on and stays on.

I have a few pedals that turn on automatically when I power up my pedal board. A little bit annoying, having to make sure everything is turned off before I start playing.
