This unit uses a 9 volt battery and/or 9v adaptor. If it malfunctions, it might have processor lock up. A weak on-board battery will prevent reset even when you unplug adaptor. Remove battery and let unit sit unpowered for 24 hours. Install new battery and re-try.

I just opened the box of my new tdk 2-speaker boombox. I read the manual and it says as soon as I turn the left nob, it should turn on. The only thing that is turning on is the tiny monitor...nothing else....

Email or call customer support. It is a firmware issue that requires the unit to be returned to TDK. once contacted they will email you a return postage label Once the unit is recieved they will send you a new boom box

Need to connect Boss BR 1180 to laptop and don't have a clue..

To be completely honest I am from the old school service industry going back to Multitrack Tape recorders. I found it interesting researching your problem and hope I can be of some help. It appears you have purchased the BR-1180s not the BR-1180cd-r. The BR-1180cd-r sells for $899.00 and a used upgrade kit sells for $169.00, which is not sold by Roland/Boss anymore and are not good financial choices for you. To answer your question you can record from the BR-1180s to a WAV or MP3 on your laptop. I would use the RCA output and an RCA to 3.5mm stereo connector available at Radio Shack or Cables To Go at the following link.
Plug the RCA red connector in the BR-1180s right line out and the white connector in the left line out. Plug the 3.5mm male connector into the laptops line in (Blue) jack. Now that you have the hardware connected you need to have software for the computer to record the audio. if you have a program like Roxio 2010 you can use the music creator to record and edit the audio output from the laptops line in. If you do not have recording software you can do a Google search for free pc recording software or click on the link bellow.
If you have a Macintosh your should already have the software to record on your system.
Launch your recording software on your laptop computer. From your audio manager (click on the audio manager icon located by the clock) set the mixer volume on line in so it will not clip or distort. If you do not hear any sound make sure your BR-1180 is in playing your mastered recording and the laptops line in is turned on. You now should have your recording on your laptop and be able to edit and save it from the laptops recording software. From this point you can burn the .WAV or .MP3 to a CD or DVD.

It won't turn on

Um, since this unit doesn't actively drive a subwoofer by design, how would THAT be a factor in its demise? Or are you using it as an amp for the sub? Then we need to know more about the sub - like its model number and impedance.

And did its predecessor also serve the same purpose? If you're overheating amps routinely I think you need to get more powerful (or professional-grade) amps.

This is not a very powerful receiver at 90wpc so using it for sub duty may be asking too much of it if you drive it too hard.

If it won't turn on with NO speakers attached, well, may it rest in peace. What model was the old receiver?

I want to get the metallica sound from my marshall AVT50

Use the high gain channel. Set the bass to 8-10 set set the mids to 6-7 and the treble to taaste to cut through. Also turn the contour all the way up. To gice that scooped mid sound. Or use the celan channel on the amp and run a boss metal zone pedal through it. Set amps clean channel EQ to flat ( at 5) and the metal zones controls. Treble to taste for a good bite, bass up to the point were it wont fart out on your amp, sweep the mids outer knob set about 5-7 and the inner knob to about 4. Set prescence for clearity and the distortion level as high as you can stand it.

try turning the unit off in standby mode then hold down the enter button and then the power button for about 10m seconds that should reset the unit depending on how new the unit is it sometimes has a digital saftey setting but i doubt that would cause it to do what you are saying

Shows to be stuck in Standby.

hold down the enter button and the advanced surround button for 5 seconds or so and the amp will restart, the display will come up and hopefully it will be ok. its often caused by using speakers under 8 ohms, or damaged speaker cables etc
