Are the level meters on each track showing on the screen? Do they move?

Have you rebooted the VS power to see if the audio returns?

So you don't have any sound in your headphones either? Tried both plugs and cranked up the pots?
Is the VS connected to external speakers? Or how?
What is your "out" configuration?
It may be a number of things, having to do with configuration (Eazy Routing).
Try beginning from scratch: load a new projects and start from there. Still no sound?

Do you see the level meters moving on the screen? Or is the screen totally blank, no matter what signal you apply to any channel?

Not the screen itīs not blank, it has projects, also I can wiew all the screen abailable, even the screen of wawes. But when I apply any instrument the meter doesnīt appear at all, but I get the soud of clipping, and also the metronome sound.
Thanks for your interest.

If you hear the sound of the metronome, that means the metronome is engaged. Go to Utilities, page 2, and make sure the metronome is "Off"
What do you get now?

Hi again, I did tried every single thing,metronome on-off and sound is off. Iīm going to try to save all of my projects, in backups and reset the hard drive with rolands origin parameters, but itīll take me time to do it, as i have a lot of own projects.
If there is somebody who had the same problem, I would appreciate some help. Thanks for your interest

Yes, that's what I would do, if you tried everything else without any success

I don't remember anyone having experienced this problem. It is entirely possible that the hard drive is cluttered to the max: you mention that you need to save "all your projects" so there must be quite a few of them. Reformatting the hard drive and resetting the VS to factory specs should bring you back to square one.

If that doesn't work, then the motherboard has gone bad, I would think

Hi again March, thanks for your interest, yes I have 35 projects to save, I will try to save them in backups and then Iīll try to clone the hard drive, after that Iīll reformate the hard drive and reset to factory specs & see what it happens.
The thruth is that Iīve never heard of no one that had the same problem, but even in Roland no one answer to any problem like this. I supposed that itīs a very rare anomalie.
Thanks anyway

Jose A, while I've also never heard of your issue, I would strongly suggest that you make (2) backups of the material you really want to keep. I say that because you don't have a sure fire way to check the backup disc. While most of us don't normally have issues with backups, issues do creep in from time to time. Again, make 2 backups just in case.

Hi again powermac, ok thanks for your suggestion. Itīs a good idea.
The problem is that I canīt ask no one expert from roland that could help me. I did try with the only person in my region- country and the only answer he gave me was to clon the hard drive and to do the backups and after that reset the hard drive to the original setings and if there is not any other solution, itīs what Iīll do.
Thanks for your interest

When I first got my 2480 I had a heck of a time trying to get sound from it.

For me it ended up being the MIX button.

I sold the unit a few years ago but I think it's over on the right side somewhere...on the channel edit view screen, NOT on the unit
Page 150 in the owner's manual, which you can download from rolandus.com

Hi sammyopop, I send my 2480cd to a Roland professional authorized by Roland in Spain and he told me that the motherboard has a problem that enables the sound, and he told me that itīs not posible to repair nowadays. he sujest me to buy a new motherboard, but the costs itīs to hi if there īs any available at the moment. So I suppose that you have the same problem than me.
Iīll try to find another one in the second han market, if it wouldnīt be possible then I must have to go to the pc even though I donīlike it. regards
