Install a fan to help cool the rack. With air flow, the ratings of many componenents are doubled. The top of the rack is the hottest as well.

Do you mean "Behringer" PMP2000?

As always, you should refer to the manual FIRST before coming here.That is where WE will usually start. But this one offers NO troubleshooting guidance or you could be talking about a whole different product so...

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

I have a Behringer UB2222FX-Pro Mixer. The effects control knob (turn/push) has broken below the face of the mixer. Can this part be replaced and where can I get it? Thanks


You need to find a pro audio repair shop to have that repaired. OR you can send it in to Behringer. To my knowledge parts are not available to just buy for them. You'll find that the switch you're ref. to, is soldered to circuit board.

My Tchnics Sa-Da10 shuts down on what appears to


Ahh technics. Technics always had overheating problems, trust me. Every since they started, their amps would get so hot they would hurt to touch. The reason the fan is not coming on seams to be something inside the circuit board. I'm sure that technics could fix this. If the fan works out of the receiver, then it must not be the fan. ;P

I would maybe get a computer fan, and just put it on top of the receiver and turn it on, or send it in for fixing. Also, do you have to crank the volume to get the speakers to play at your volume, and does the impeadence match the receiver. Because you may be pushing the receiver too hard.

My receiver shuts down frequently , wakes back after 2 or 3 sec .


do you have sufficient space around the unit? If it is in an enclosed space, has other components on top, etc, you may be overheating the receiver. Once it gets too hot it can potentially cause the issues you mention above.

If you have other components on top, try moving them to another shelf or below the receiver, and if you have a door on an entertainment center, leave the door open to help with air flow.

Behringer europower pmh5000 turn it on big flash and smoke came out of vent no longer works did smell hot when it was last used


The output section has shorted output transistors. The increased load on the driver section probably smoked a few capacitors and resistors. Until the unit is repaired, you won;t get anything out of it. I would figure on $25-$50 in parts for the repair plus the local labor rate.
