MC-808 Write Button Not Working!

Post by translucencecs » Fri Feb 11, 2011 1:06 am

Hi guys... Uh... Help..?!

I recently picked up a 2nd hand Roland MC-808, and when I go to save patterns or patches, I press the "Write" button, as per the instruction manual, and nothing happens. No display change, no warning, nothing. It CERTAINLY doesn't as for a name or location to save in and also does not save. I'm starting to get a horrible feeling about this, but not panicking yet.

Anyone know if I'm missing something here? Is it as simple as pressing the"Write" button and entering name/location (in which case is the "Write" button likely to be broken)? If not, am I supposed to unprotect memory or something?

I'd be eternally grateful to any MC-808 owners (or others) who may be able to help with this..!

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
