When I turn on my Boss BR-1180, the screen says "Message: Now checking..." and doesn't go past that point whatever I do. Help please, it's frozen and I'm worried I've lost years of recordings!

It sounds like the machine has hardware problems for sure, but hopefully it is not the actual hard drive that has the problems. If so then sadly you may have lost some recordings. Honestly your best bet is to talk with a Boss dealer in your area to get the low-down on what is going on. I would not trust something so delicate to anyone that is not an official Boss person, especially since you have years worth of recordings on there.

They should be able to pull the data off the hard drive though and back it up for you, which is something I would have recommended you do for sure since it is possible that it could go out at any time and keeping all of your recordings in one place on one device is very risky.

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.

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.

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.
