Not sure if I have some sort of "short" or what. You press the "power" button to turn the unit on, then there's a quick flash of light on the LCD (like it is about to turn on), but it then won't turn on. Nothing. Any ideas? Trying to avoid a $200 plus servicing/repair. And still prefer my 1180 over computer programs.

Re: BR-1180 won't power-up
I Own This Unit And I Tell You What I Love It And Cant See Myself Using A Computer Anytime Soon. You Can Open It Up And Check For Loose Connections By Removing The Screws Shown Here
Youll Wanna Remove The Disk Drive Cover First Indicated By The Blue Dots. Once Inside There Arent Many Connections To Check But Now You Can Unplug The Hard Drive And Try Powering The Unit On Again. See If You Get The Same Result. Once Thats Done Plug The Hard Drive Back In And Try Again To See If It Works. If It Doesn't Call Roland Theyre Costumer Support Is Awesome And They Can At least Give You An Idea Of What May Be Wrong.

The devices that have battery AND adapter capability OFTEN have a switch that the adapter opens when powered by the adapter. Often this switch contact gets bent and units won
t run on battery, so try it on an adapter... if the adapter works and battery doesn't, this contact whcih is a part of the input power connector has failed.
MICHAEL SCOTT: YOU PASSED ALONG SOME GREAT INFORMATION BUT IT ONLY GETS ME HALFWAY THERE...
I HAVE ALL THE NECESSARY CABLES HOOKED UP. DO YOU HAVE TO RECORD MY SONG FROM THE 1180 TO AUDACITY OR WHAT?...THIS IS ALL NEW TO ME AND IT MAY WORK BUT TELL ME HOW TO RECORD FROM THE 1180 TO AUDACITY.
Don't know if this unit is sensitive to the type of CD, but my Phillips recorders will ONLY burn the "Music CD's" (harder to find, more expensive). Read up on the difference of regular vs Music CD's. ALSO some recorders will not burn disks rated at lower or higher rates.
This Is real simple grab a cable that goes from rca jacks to a headphone jack then plug the rca jacks into the br-1180's audio out jack and then plug the other end into your computers mic port. Download Audacity From www.Audacity.com and then use it to capture you audio and then you can burn that when complete. Its real simple I do it all the time even though I have the br-1180cd the cd burner burns real quiet so I don't use it. The cable can be bought at radio shack, best buy, wal-mart and I have even seen them at 99 cent only stores. If you have more question let me know This Is my main unit so I know a lot about it. Sincerely, Michael Scott
Hey mike yeah you can hook a regular cdr drive to the ribbon but the problem is if its not a slim it most likely wont fit inside the unit. Also the built in c.d r is way over rated mine has it and I still bounce it all onto my computer and then burn it from there. The one on the br-1180cd burns very quiet.
Midi doesn't actually "make sound". If your trying to record the patterns you made on the DR-5 to the recorder you need to use an audio output(I don't remember if they are RCA or 1/4" on the DR-5.) The midi output would be used to"trigger sounds" in another device that has sounds built in, or you could also trigger sounds in a program that supports midi input.
Im Guessing Your Trying To Burn It Off Before Mastering It Which Means All The Tracks Between 1 And 10. First You Click Audio Cd Write/Play Then Select Disc At Once And Then It Should Guide You From There. I Hope This Helps www.Myspace.com/CrossRoadsToNowhere2007
before you go out and buy a new hd try intializing your system.
unfortunaly you will lose all saved info, but you will either way. this test may save you some money.
with your 1180 in the off position press and hold the track 5 button below the fader and the redo/undo button that is just to the left of the rotarty knob and below the power button. while holding these two buttons press the power button and continue to hold the track 5 button and the undo redo buttons untill the test menu is showing. its takes about 15- 30 sec. in the test menu rotate the value knob till you see 23 initialize HDD and press ok. this process may take up to 30 mins. if this doesnt fixya then contact roland for a replacement.
