I have exactly the same problem. I will try to buy a used internal zip drive over web with the same especifications to try to fix my BR8. I have already carefully removed the broken zip drive from the BR8. It was not so easy, but is not too complicated. The next step will be find out a working 100MB zip drive. I founded some in ML(Mercado Livre) but it was in a very distant city from mine and the mail expenses are higher then the zip drive itself. Good Luck for us.

Is this a MIXER or maybe a BOSS - BR-600 ' Digital Recorder ??

If it's a BOSS try this secret FACTORY RESET CODE:

Need Help on a Boss B R 8

I think I solved this problem.

I used a different power adapter and it works now. Try different adapters, I used an old Nintendo one. It is 9V 1.3A, even though the back of the BR-8 says 9V 2A

Boss br-8 digital recorder wont load up. powers up but no program

This Sounds Very Bad Do You Have Experience With Taking Apart Computers? If So You May Want To Open Up Your Br-1180 And Remove The Hard Drive And Put It In Your Computer And Copy All The Data Off Of It. I Also Would Recommend Calling Roland They Are The Most Helpful People In The World.

Boss br-8 digital recorder wont load up. powers up but no program

More than likely you experienced a short within the unit. Sounds like it might be a power surge, if nothing is function but you have power.

Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix, and I would suggest taking it to a service center for repair.
