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.

Hi I have a boss 1600br that will not power up. screen just blinks.I've .The br 600 model has trouble with a po wer diode causing it not to switch on. Could this also be the same with a br 1600?


Make sure you're using the correct power adapter or that the one you have is not malfunctioning. I've experienced Roland/Boss equipment blinking (and restarting over and over) when they are not receiving enough power. Sometimes even the resistance caused by too long of an extension cord can cause this to happen.

Boss br 900cd! pls help


If it does not power up, it is likely going to be a faulty or severly dirty switch contact or a failed capacitor in the power supply. A shot of contact cleaner is usually enough to rectify the first issue, The second issue you need to locate the part at fault and replace it.

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.
