SOURCE: BR8 Digital recording studio lights up, but it doesn't do anything else

I called Roland at the number that you provided and gave they following proceedure which will re-intialize the BR 1180 and ERASE everything that was created on the HD:

  1. Simultaneously hold down button beneath volume control at track 5 and Undo/Redo button at upper right
  2. Press power button while holding down buttons as above, until test menu comes up
  3. Turn selector dial untill initialize screen shows
  4. Prdess ENTER and initialization will start
  5. Once initialization is completed, power off unit and then power it back-up.
NOTE: This proceedure erases all data!

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 br8. I have no power is there a fuse inside the machine?


There should be a fuse on the power supply board inside the unit. If it is not that then it is most likely the board itself. You can get a replacement at Allied Electronics.

Can't download tracks from BR-800 to laptop


Go to this site:

http://www.vsplanet.com/ubbthreads/

In the forums tab, scroll down to the BR8 forums. There is software to convert the BR files to PC readable. You can find discussion there of where and what to get.

Br8...the enter button has become harder and harder to make activate...now nothing. Everything in the unit works fine...except the enter button...which means that I cant record anything at all.


The button is obviously bad... The next thing is to determine what type button is used, It may be a small module or it may be a conductive rubber one. The latter, you take apart and clean with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and QTips. The module type you unsolder and replace the little module.

Can I use a computer hard drive in my Boss Br8 multitrack recorder the zip drive is not reading....something like 20 gig or whatever is in a pentium 3 would this work and if so how do I do it???


It is not likely the firmware will talk to a hard drive as the interface is different.

Refer to the VSPlanet.com site where some have converted to use SD cards in place of Zip drives.

Boss BR 8...I insert the 100 mb disk, then asks to initialize..I enter 'yes' then it asks 'sure?' I enter yes then it says 'medium error' then ejects the disk..what's the problem?


If the disk had data put on with a PC you might try deleting all files and folders using the PC before formatting the disk in the BR8.

It is also possible that the media has gone bad.

A final try would be to degauss the disk and try to format on the BR8.

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. http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-89306161-_JM

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.
