Question about Roland Vs2400CD Digital Workstation W/CD Recorder System

1 Answer

Frozen Roland VS2400CD

I started recording on the VS2400 today, and for some strange reason it frozen on me, maybe as I was recording I was bringing down levels just to see what that would do as I'm running a test to see if I set up the system correctly. 
Can anyone help I can't restart so i have to manually shut it down from the power switch on the back of the board.  I tried running the software for the board, but nothing seems to unfreeze.
I wanted to know because I was still recording when it froze does that have something to do with.

    I have had so much about vs2000cd i got it but it has been giving me scares. A friend got it for me in the U.S. There is no product support around here. Thank God ive gotten someone with a similar problem. I was trying my first recording on it when suddenly there was some now.All buttons stopped working and i could not shut down.I turned it off from the back but it refused to reboot. I tried some solutions from this help site and have reloaded the drive about 5 times and yet it hangs for no obvious reason. For the trouble i went thro before getting this baby, I dont want to loose it. Please help solve this problem.- Joshua.

I have the fix, since this happens when you are fragmented and the drive gets lost. Only one way I got around this and it actually just happen to me during a live concert.

The only buttons that work are for creating a new song. this gives you the option to save your work. Sometimes, the unit is so hung up that that might not even work.

You need to reformat your drive. If the drive keeps coming up frozen, I swap out the drive and lup to another drive and do a different IDE #. Then I put the problem drive back in to save what ever I can. At least at that point the drive is bootable. Soetimes you can access the damaged IDE and start backing up but it is a **** shoot.

Hope it helps.

My roland vs2400CD keeps getting stuck at the load screen. I have tried the factory reset, but can't complete it. Is there anything else I can try, or do I have to have my hard drive replaced?

Hold the two buttons down above the slider on track #4 when turning the power on. You have something that is corrupt on your hard drive. This bypasses looking for a project to load up and just goes straight to the operating system.

Roland VS 2480 v2 - working on album and received error message "load project please wait" since last night. have tried turning machine off and on and unplugging it. still same message.

Hi, have you tried to do a factory reset?

Hold SHIFT and press F4 (Utility). Press PAGE to get to page 3. Press F6 (PrmIni). Press F5. Press ENTER/YES.

If the factory reset does not fix the problem i think you have to format the disk because it has a fragmented disk .......
