Was the replacement power supply a DC or AC device? The HD500 requires DC. If you used an AC supply I frankly don't know what to expect, but probably nothing good. Your HD500 likely needs servicing.

I would start a support ticket here:

+1 Silverhead.  Sorry mate but I think you are going to need another plan for your gig.  Generally, a  blank screen means you are sunk.

The only other thing to try maybe is another POD HD power supply.  Perhaps they would let you try one at the store.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
