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.

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.

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.
Thanks

I have the boss BR-900CD and everything seems to work fine but nothing shows up on the screen. It lights up but no data shows up. Thanks


Hello,

the problem is from the display IC of your unit. You nee to change the display IC for your unit to display again.

If you cannot do it yourself, maybe you should consult an expert to help you have it fixed.

Good luck.

Each time I attempt to initialize a zip disk in my Roland BR8...


Probably the drive has gone bad as a first thought... this happens. Possibly the heads got dirty...

Make sure nobody has smoked tobacco around the unit as that is a killer for Zip drives.

Sometimes they have a second level of initializing/formatting. If the BR* has that, try it.

Original circa 1982 Kurzweil Ensemble Grand upright, has been working just fine until today. At first the (grand piano) sound had just become very distorted or seemed to have messed up sustain or echoing....


Given its age, this unit needs a little TLC. Units of that vintage used some capacitors that may have dried out a bit and need to be replaced. There are also op-amp ICs internally that may be defective. I would suggest a visit to a service shop that works on keyboards as not all do.

Keep us posted.

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.

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!
