Burnt out my boss BR 1180. How do I repair?

I stupidly used my laptop charger to turn on my Boss br1180 and it burnt something inside. When using the correct mains adapter the screen flashes on then off after a sceond I just need to know who i can send it to for repair at a fair price. Or what I would need to do to repair it myself.

I'm not sure which entry will get to you, so... The likely defective part is the voltage regulator. This should be fixble by any shop that handles audio gear. No special test equipment or parts are required. The regulator circuit should be fairly standard and simple. Where are you located so I can recommend a shop? Dan

Go here: http://www.roland.co.uk/warranty.asp and call them for a local repair center. I don't think they will repair under warranty (if its still under warranty) due to the damage being your fault, but they should direct you to a repair center.

BR-1180 freezing & high-pitch ring


Check your power supply to the unit. Low voltage COULD cause this.

Also make sure a setting is not "looping" the audio back into itself.

C.d burner has stopped working on my BR1180


As long as it indicates program content in the memory and can play the audio through an am p or headphones you should still be able to record the content onto your computer and burn it from there if your computer has a burner. I use Audacity which is a good freeware program.

What do I need to burn a cd from my pc with the br 1180


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

No CD writer for Boss BR-1180


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.

Is the Boss Dr-5 compatable with the Boss BR-1180 mini studio?


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.

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.

MY Boss br 1180 ,disk error


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.
