You may find corrosion has eaten through a circuit trace on the circuit board OR has spoiled the power switch.

I plugged what i assumed was the correct transformer into my micro br and after a burning smell it died .obviously now i realise it was the wrong one ! unit does power on by battery still and works ok .is...

This was probably supposed to have a 5 volt power adapter... you burned up either:

1. Regulator
2. Circuit trace on the board
3. Protection diode
4. resistor ahead of the regulator.

Repair should not be too bad if they know exactly what you had connected, Make sure to use a competent shop.

I cannot turn on my Micro BR - its plugged in and has new batteries but still won't work Does this mean it's completely broken or is there some sort of stand by phase that may have initiated itself?

The devices that have battery AND adapter capability OFTEN have a switch that the adapter opens when powered by the adapter. Often this switch contact gets bent and units won
t run on battery, so try it on an adapter... if the adapter works and battery doesn't, this contact whcih is a part of the input power connector has failed.

The memory card says unformatted card

Refer to your BR manual for procedure to format the card. Formatting the card in a PC just doesn't cut it.

Look in your index in the manual for "formatting" or "card"...etc.

Micro BR power Adapter

You may have damaged the data on the memory card. If you have no display at all carefully read page 125 of your manual.If it doesn't display with the adapter plugged in try new batteries. If it still doesn't display anything, contact the dealer you bought it from or try contacting Roland. This site should help:

My micro br got wet. when i discovered this it had fixed on hold. I dried it out for a day and it seemed to be working fine but a couple of days later now and all the displays seem to be fine but there is...

I am sure it can be repaired. Whenever ANY electronics get wet, IMMEDIATELY remove ANY pwer sources, including internal batteries.

If wetting was not pure water, flush unit with de-ionized water till absolutely clean of any residue. shake out all water and allow to dry a week before applying power.

I have boss micro br hooked up to my computer it has windows vista.I'm not finding a micro br icon to click on to open files or drag to another file to open so as to send in email.

You won't find a specific Micro Br Icon since it is a data transfer connection only.

Try going to "My computer" and it should appear similar to when you plug in a USB stick. It MIGHT have a meaningful name, but it might not.
