I have the Boss ME 50. Here's things to try. Use wall outlet to power the 25 instead of batteries. Have volume on amp up, volume on pedal all the way up, volume pedal all the way up(depressed), no gain on amp(use clean channel or clean setting if only 1 channel)effects on amp off(reverb, chorus, delay, boost, etc.) mid range knob below 5. only 1 pickup on, guitar tone knob all the way towards treble. If this puts you in the ballpark you can then make slight tweaks to any of these settings. What we're trying to do is not run a dirty sound from the pedal board into an amp with dirty settings. That double dirt often causes a muddy sound. Aside from that you can back off on various effects in the patches. My 50 has a list of the patches and factory settings, so if the drive, for example is set on 8, I might back it off to 4, or the compressor, or the delay, etc. If you like the sound save it. If not continue on. Start with the amp 1st. Higher output tubes(such as JJ's produce a cleaner sound. Also the demo you heard was not coming from your guitar speaker which may not be on the clean side.

Did you check the solder connection on the jack where it connects to the motherboard? That's a high stress point and could simply be a broken contact that needs to be resoldered. Should be 3 or 4 pins likely.

Get the manual from web site and it will tell you how to replace the battery.
