Question about Behringer XENYX 2222FX MIXER

1 Answer

Behringer xenyx 2222fx turns off and on continuously after 15min of operation

Very frustrating during recording. Not to mention destructive to the power amp & all the effects in the insert part of channels, they all get a large crack every time it turns off and back on. Checked proper insertion of power supply cable, no problem in power outlet either, plus it's behind an APC surge protection. I'd like to repair this myself as a project, any tips welcome.

More than likely, something has happened to the internal pathways to make it become unstable.

Have you tried unplugging EVERYTHING from the board? If not, try that, and just watch what it does with nothing but the power cord connected to it.

If unit still click off/on, then it probably needs service. I'm not so sure this is worth tackling yourself, unless you're willing to risk losing it altogether. Might be fun just to see what happens though. Good luck.

Inserts how to use properly

Not sure what lead you are using, from the mixer end T R S are send return and screen respectively. You need a splitter cable or proper insert lead. Where are you trying the bypass, if it is on the unit being inserted you may just have the wires the wrong way round. You have remembered to set the send and return levels haven't you?

You are unikely to find these as Behringer are very protective and anyway it is VERY unlikely you'd be able to make a cost effective fix even if you did get one.

I am trying to record from xenyx 2442fx to audacity. I am not sure how. I think it has something to do with usb, but do not know how to connect the mixer to the computer to get a good sound. Please help.

First, connect the USB audio interface which came with the Xenyx to a USB port on the PC. Then connect the TAPE OUT from the Xenyx to the IN of the USB audio interface. And connect the OUT of the USB audio interface to the TAPE IN of the Xenyx. You should now be able to record from any of the Xenyx channels. To listen back, engage the control room button which reads CD/TAPE. Contact me if you need any clarification.

I suspect that there is a problem on the effects board. Most of the signals go through this board. I would check the seating of connectors associated with the board.

Have a Behringer 1202 Xenyx FX, balanced cable into a new windows 7 PC and keep getting hiss. When I raise the gain, mic or master volume the hiss is more awful. my internet broadcasts sound awful. what am...

You are running your balanced cable into a windows 7 PC? What interface are you using... not the line input on the PC I hope as it is NOT balanced... it is Stereo input with UNBALANCED input. If you tie the mixer using a balanced to 1/8 inch balanced connector you will get plenty of hiss since you are driving the stereo channels oppositely. For high quality, get a good audio interface that runs on the USB of the PC. If you can tolerate a bit of noise but wire it correctly, then you will need to use two UNBALANCED lines out of the mixer for L and R and merge them to a stereo 1/8 inch plug for the PC.

Why did you change the fuse? If it was blown, then power supply has failed. Here is your schematic. The power supply is on page 14.

Scroll down the page at the site to the "Get Manual" Click on that to download the schematic. When working on line operated supplies use an isolation transformer for personal safety. The regulator chip IC2 has probably failed but test before changing. HINT: When restoring the supply, put a 60 watt light bulb in series with the hot power lead to act as a resetable fuse... saves fuses and also other components if all the bad parts haven't been weeded out.

Behringer Xenyx 2222fx doesn't power up. I've replaced the fuse and power cord, still nothing. When you flip the phantom power switch, the red +48V indicator light comes on on the front. Other than that,...

The Phantom power comes from a seperate winding on the switching power supply.Likely one or more of the other voltages are not present due to a failure of one or more components. The supplies are current limited so a short anyplace on the board may cause the problem. I had one of these short betwen the +/- 15 volt busses because somebody spilled liquid into it.

Here is a close schematic... a slightly different model with less channels, but circuoitry is the same, just more copies of it in yours: I believe it is zipped with four files... the last is the power supply.

It doesnt power up all of a sudden, for no apparent reason.

This is likely a pwer supply problem... BUT do check that the power cord is properly seated... pretty common that these work loose.
