The Roland DR-660 drum machine has a number of features and corresponding settings. When the unit is unplugged from its power source, a small battery is used to keep these settings stored in memory. When this battery dies, the unit will begin presenting error messages and will be unable to store settings when removed from power. Replacing the internal battery will solve this issue.
