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.

Hello Alan.
Yes you can connect your ME-25 to the BR-800, there is no risk to damage any. it is simple, you may use both outputs of the pedal and send them via two normal 1/4 plug guitar cables to two of the channels of the DR (i.e. ch 1 & 2) to avoid an initial saturation of the recording preamp, set the input sens pot at minimum and the sliders very close to minimum as you try playing and looking the levels on the display and adjunting them to the optimum.
To connect the DR to an amp you should use the pair of RCA jacks named LINE OUT (R & L) depending of the amp you have there might be the need for a conversion cable or plug adapters. The out put of the DR is stereo, and if you want to use a guitar amp, commonly mono, you should mix both channels to send them to one input, this can be done by putting two 10 kohms resistors in series with each channel output and joining the other end to the input.
Good luck and best wishes

Uninstall any HP device and try it. Then reinstall the HP device.

Remove power supply or battery for 5 minutes. Apply power while holding the on switch in, this usually resets most electronic devices to their factory default condition. Then look again.

Best to use the line out jacks. The phone jack is stereo and you would have to use a wye cable for that.

Weak batteries or power adapter would cause this.

Go to this site:


In the forums tab, scroll down to the BR8 forums. There is software to convert the BR files to PC readable. You can find discussion there of where and what to get.

Yep, that's what its supposed to do. You set the start (and stop) points and it punches from play to record so you can pick up just before where you goofed up. I'd suggest you put the punch-in point at a natural transition to what you're recording - like a pause in guitar part of between verse/chorus of vocals. If you try to punch into the middle of a guitar run (for example) the results may be less that satisfactory. Make sure you sing/play along with the playback so the transition sounds natural - don't try to just pick up after the punch.

You don't tell us where you're located, but the best bet would be either Ebay, Craig's List, or Reverb.com

Unfortunatly the impact from a fall can lead to numerous problems ranging from a broken fuse to a disloged power supply to a cracked board. I'd suggest taking it into your nearest Roland authourized service center to get it checked out. If you're not trained in electronics you can do more harm than good poking around inside the amp. https://www.roland.com/us/support/service_repair/service_centers
