Question about Roland Music
I have a Boss BR-8. It hasnt been used for a few years, and the last time it was used, it was used by my teenage daughter who never mentioned anything wrong, but who knows, did she shut it down properly etc? When I have turned it on, I get nothing in the display other than illumination. Leds are lite under the faders of 1, 3, 5 and 6. Nothing will work. A brief search of the internet and some posts here, they lead me to restart it holding down the button under 5 and the undo button at the same time. Eventually, it came to life, and after a bit of messing around it work. It did not give me an initialization menu as others have mentioned, it just started going. Used it for 30 mins and then shut it down properly. Now, the following day, it won't work again. The tip of holding down 5 and undo whilst powering up doesn't work. I have been trying for nearly an hour. Is there something that can be done? It is not used enough to warrant a repair. Someone said to download the latest software, but without a zip drive, I won't be able to put it on a disk. Your help would be appreciated. Kind regards, Andy

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.

CHeck the voltage out of the adapter. It should be around 9 to 11 volts. If it is not, it is possible that the OC3 has reversed polarity AND a protector that put a short on an incorrect supply. If so, it could have damaged the RC50 adapter. If the RC50 adapter is putting out correct voltage, then I suspect the inout connector on the RC50 may be damaged or not quite seated. Visually inspect the connector first.

This amp uses a TDA2050 chip that has thermal protection. It is also a small amp that is NOT capable of high sound levels. If *********** can't stand to be within 5 feet of this amp you are playing TOO LOUD for this amp and it will shut down until cooled off to protect the amplifier chip. This amp is intended for practice. It would be adequate for sensible listening level in a 10 foot by 10 foot room. If you need more sound you will have to get a bigger amp. I would suggest you get a sound meter and verify the sound level. DO NOT exceed 4 hours at 90 DB... I know a lot of deaf musicians that have lost their hearing and they are not much good anymore.
