"Insane button has stopped working"

those micro switches tend to go out after awhile. what i have done is (if you have experience with circuit board handling and are proficient at soldering.) de-solder the bad switch and take it down to radio shack and have them size it up. and just replace it. i have had to do this with several of my line 6 products

Enter button not working

If this is a traditional keyboard (not laptop) or extremely fancy keyboard.

Try unplugging the keyboard. Then.
  1. Take a butter knife and slide it into the crevice next to the "enter key".
  2. Apply a small amount of pressure to pry the key upward.
  3. With little effort the key should pop off or slide off.
  4. Check the spot the key was for dirt, dust, food, etc. Clean it if you must. Make sure the actual key does not have anything stuck to the bottom of it.
  5. Push the key back onto it's place on the keyboard.
  6. Plug back in and see if that worked.
If this did not work, you may need to replace the keyboard OR you may want to make sure no viruses are playing an aweful trick on you.

Enter buttion not working

Hello, that seems to be a bad contact on the enter button, the solution is to take a part the key and clean it, otherwise you need to replace the under key switch.

I have a failing WK3800 which I've had for less than 2 years and it has many problems: first I lost all the songs in the internal memory, then the keys 3, 6, 9, and + stopped functioning. Now my...

It sounds like the actual button switches are going bad. Those would normally be replaceable id you can find an electronic tech that is competent. The internaal backup battery may be bad causing loss of the songs. One would have to look at the switches and find a substitute supplier. These switches are often very tiny about the size of a pencil eraser and are actuated by the larger buttons on the panels. You can probably find them at or They typically cost about 30 cents each... Disassembly and desoldering and soldering qill be required. The internal parts of the switches wear out.

Hi. My boss br 1600 will n ot start. I turn on the power source and it will blink for a split second and then nothing. I checked for loose connections but everything seems ok. Any suggestions?

I have this problem with mine. I've did some research and with the boss br 600 this problem can arise quite often .it's caused by a faulty power diode apparently except in that case I've never heard ofrom the screen blinking at all (which my 1600 also does) I wonder I'd this problem can be the same for a br 600 as the br 600

You might go over to and look in the forums there. They deal a lot with Roland digital recording workstations.

My Yes/enter button wont work, how do i go about replacing this or fixing it? i took it apart and the button does not work at all is there anything i can do?

The button will either be a switch type with a small switch actuated by the button or a conductive rubber pill that is pressed against circuit traces on the board. The latter you can clean with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q tips. The switch type you probably have to replace the switch as the internal contacts have likely worn. Often these switches are very small and take a lot of force given the size of buttons that actuate them. Unsoldering from the board takes care to NOT damage the circuit board and the pads. Make sure the new switch is held tightly to the board before soldering in place.

Br8...the enter button has become harder and harder to make 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.

Effects button not working!!!!

Most likely the fuse for the effects circuit has blown, which happens sometimes on mixers with built in effects.

You'll have to open the mixer as the fuse will be inside the mixer on a circuit board (look around inside where the effects part of the mixer is) replace it with an identically rated working fuse and you should be done.
