Just got a used Boss SE-50 with no manual... how do you restore the factory presets? Any help here would be great. Also, know any sites where I can download a manual? Not available from Roland. Thanks for any help.

The presets are the first 128, you can not rewrite them. When you change parameters and write to memorie, they are allocated to the second group of 128..

Thanks Fran, but from what I've been able to see of the unit so far, it's only got 128 presets... period. No evidence I can see of 128 user-128 factory presets. Is there no way to restore this thing to the factory settings? I can't believe they would leave that out.

I can't remember, but I think there were only 28 presets, and the rest were writable. The first 28 were fixed - try to edit them and see if you can write to a location in the first few number banks. Sounds like the internal battery is gone if there are no presets written.

From a old Roland Resource book:

SE-50 Power on while holding PARAM UP (^) and VALUE UP (^). Press WRITE. Wait three
seconds and press WRITE again.

Dave and Mgomes are correct.. Ther are a total of 128 effect memories . The first 100 are the writable locations and the last[101-128] are writable spots. From the factory the first 28 are the factory presets[same as the presets 101-128, but you can write overthem. The remaining group 29-100 are variation and custom effects shipped from the factory.. The procedure for factory reset was correctly stated,,Fran

Mgomes...just put it to the test... worked like a charm. I plan to use this beast mainly in a guitar rig, but will also be using in conjunction with an old Korg 01/W in my home recording setup. Thanks again for the help everyone! Still looking for an online manual.... any ideas?
