VIDEONICS MIXER MX PRO 3000--CAN NOT GET TO CROMOKEE
UNIT WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO GET TO THE PROGRAM TO ALLOW ME TO USE THE CROMOKEE FUNCTION. THE SPECIAL EFFECTS PART OF THE UNIT WORKS FINE. WE HAD LOST POWER IN THE ROOM. UP UNTIL THEN IT WORKED FINE. AS I SAID THE UNIT POWERS UP AND WORKS FINE EXCEPT FOR THE CROMOKEE FUNCTION.ANY IDEA OR WHO CAN REPAIR THIS UNIT. FOCUS-- THE COMPANY THAT MAKES IT DOES NOT SUPPORT IT ANYMORE. WE DID TRY THE RECOMENDED RESET OF THE UNIT BUT THAT DID NOT WORK. THANK YOU--MARK ROLAND --516-319-6081

Oops! Smoke from on of those is not unusual, as behringer is notorious for bad solder joints and BAD Power supplies. Anyhow the amplifiers are "most likely" OK. but your powersupply is shot. My PMH 3000 did the exact same thing. And here is the bad news. Behringer is also notorious for the lack of assistance in case of problems and will advice you to have the unit repaired at an approved service point. If however you are ok with electronics you can have a go yourself, manuals are few and (very) far between. I have some diagrams and stuff, so if you need some sing out. I have 2, MX 3282A mixers, nothing but trouble! Sorry I can't help you any further, Good luck.
Line level output of the mixer would go into the line level inputs of the EQ, and the EQ line level outpputs to the line level inputs of the amplifier. If you are faced with a mix of unbalanced inputs or outputs, to balanced inputs or outputs it gets a little complicated because you need to matrix the balanced signal to unbalanced load and vice versa. There is no single answer to doing this either.
RCA jacks are unbalanced, 2 conductor 1/4 inch connections are unbalanced most of the time. XLR and 3 conductor 1/4 inch jacks and plugs can be either balanced or unbalanced.If either are wired so left and right are a single ring or tip on the 3 conductor 1/4 inch jack, it is unbalanced and they would share a common ground lead. XLR wired with one pin common with shield and right and left have a single conductor on the plug or jack, that is unbalanced.
It sounds like one of the output devices is going bad, ie., output transistor, capacitor, resistor or maybe just a bad connection on one of the above menitoned items. One other problem which causes this would be the main or sub volume slider or pot is wearing out and needs to be replaced.It would definately be worth your while to have a technician trace down and fix the problem on this board. Hope this helps.
