No power in Mackie TH-15A


i) I assume the fuse you mentioned was in the mains plug - did you also check the fuse in the TH15A mains input socket? This is accessed by pulling out the tab in the bottom section of the socket (below the centre pin). This is a 3.15Amp antisurge fuse, 20mm type.

ii) If this fuse has blown, then replace it & all may be well ...... but if it blows again, then move to step iii).

iii) With mains disconnected, remove rear panel (outer screws) & check the power supply PCB for damaged components, especially R111 & R112 (100ohms). If the latter are burnt or open circuited, then the amplifier module may have blown.

Do i have the right fuse


This speaker at full power draws average 1.3A at 230V and 2.5A at 120V. Mackie's recommended fuses are in line with this so your fuse is actually too high a rating. It is possible you are using cheap fast blow fuses or are over-driving the speaker (which should cause the fuse to blow) These speakers are only capable of 118db sustained (@1M) so cannot be expected to cope with anything but small venues or gentle music.

Hi, I have a mackie srm1801 and in the middle of a gig the OL LED came on and wouldn't go off. Input was unplugged and still the light wouldn't go off. After a while the fuse went and now there is no


It is likely that the O/P transistors have blown, especially if the fuse keeps blowing and the O/L led comes on. It's a repair shop jobbie

What size internal fuse on mackie srm450v2 speaker


Mackie say this is not a user service part. If the fuse has blown there is probably a fault in the unit being their reasoning. I know for certain they tend to blow for no apparent reason so it is worth giving it a go. They are 5 x 20 Slow or time fuses. 7A for 120V and 4A for 230V

Hello, I recently bought a Mackie Profx8 mixer here in the UK and I cannot locate the fuse. The AC socket does not have the fuse tray underneath (unlike my Mackie speakers) and there is no indication...


Essentially if the fuse goes, the unit is rendered useless until it is repaired. Replacing the fuse without repairing would likely cause further damage in the unit. Fuses blow for a reason that is usually a failure in the unit. Failures don't fix themselves. The ability to replace the fuse is therefore a moot point. To keep your unit safe ALWAYS power all interconnected equipment from the SAME power receptacle or conditioning module. This means running extension cords to powered speakers if that is what you have to get power the mixer. Powering mixers at one end of a room from a receptacle and the amps or speakers from a recpetacle on a stage at the other end will likely damage you equipment when a ground fault occurs or ground bounce in the building wiring ruptures the sensitive input/output circuits of your equipment.

Vlz 16 blowing fuses


This is a serious problem. If you spilled liquid into the unit, expect serious internal damage.

DO NOT keep replacing fuses as you may be creating further damage.

Best scenario is if the input to the power supply has shorted diodes or capacitors. Worst is that part of the circuit board has been burned.

Taking it to a shop or having electronic skills and opening the unit up to troubleshoot are the options.

Mackie CR 1604 - Fuse keeps blowing


This is a rare occurrance for these units. It means that either one or more of the rectifier diodes has shorted or that one of the voltage regulators is bad. In any case, this is not a unit I would suggest a novice attempt to repair. Can you update this with your location so I can suggest a repair center? The actual repair should be straightforward and not too expensive. Thanks, Dan

Fuse blowing on start up on Behringer PMH 518M


Try running the amp with no speaker cables connected. If it doesn't blow the fuse you know it's either your Speakon cables or the speakers themselves that are to blame (it's usually the cables)

If it still blows then there is a more serious problem with the power section.
