This problem is concerning a Peavey PV6 mixing console. When I turn on the power, all the clip lights come on and remain on. The user manual says that the lights are there to indicate when something is too hot but, they are all on even when no devices are connected to it. Plus, no sound is going through the board at all. I have tried every connection with several different devices and no sound is coming through. Is there a blown fuse or something that might be causing this problem? Any help would be appreciated.

You MUST turn off the echo from the computer OR remove the sound card to line in connections. The tape out goes through the sound card and immediately back out to the tape in and around it goes for feedback.
you can run one amp from the main out puts and the second amp from the CTRL Room out puts. The CTRL ROOM are outputs that are linked to the same bus as the master fader. This will work fine...
Best of luck
Disconnect the speaker wiring and speaker on the bad channel. Turn the level control(s) all the way counterclockwise and turn the amp on. If your DDT (limiting) light remains lit, it's time for a visit to your nearest certified Peavey service center....G.
FIRST check that your power adapter is 16 VAC at 1 AMP and that it is the original unit.
The clip lights monitor levels at several points. If you cranked the EQ's for maximum, say bass, that MAY cause them to illuminate.
As a test, set all EQ's at mid point. Remove ALL input cables. Are the lights still on?
It is possible that you can have a ground loop that is putting signals in that causes clipping. Another source is if you have a microphone that may be FEEDBACKING at supersonic frequency that you can't hear... that is why we disconnect all the inputs as a test.
Finding schematics so one can repair these devices can be a problem. If ALL the clip lights ar on, then it is probably the reference level source for the clip level threshold... however finding a schematic would be necessary and while part cost would be probably under a dollar, the labor and time to find the schematic would be unknown.
