Man I love this site! The information is incredible!
I turned on my VS-880 as soon as I got it. I got this...

I have a pic but don't know how to post it...

The Display shows PLY- - -
MIXER MODE SELECT Input-Track red light on
Track Status Lights (Green) on Tracks 1, 2, 3, and 4
Track Status Lights (Red) on Tracks 5, 6, 7, and 8.

I pressed Play and nothing happened... What am I doing wrong?

I followed the Shut Down procedure and turned off the unit.

Whatever is going on, assuming the machine is in working order, may be due to a pre-recorded "SONG" (what the Roland manual calls all VS sessions) being opened upon bootup.
Check the manual (or download it from Roland's site and then check it) for how to start a new song. If successfully done, you will get a blank slate to fiddle with that has everything set to its default state and ready for you to experiment with.

See if that helps. If you can't create a new song, then post back with more details, as something may be wrong with your machine....... hope not.
