Behringer MX3242X audio mixer, faulty channels

I have 3 of these desks MX3242X and they are generally very good but all of them have some faulty channels some more than others. It seems to be something to do with the channel gain control, not the faders. The fault doesn't happen in groups of channels eg 1,2,3 + 4, it appears completely random. Any ideas or maybe where I can get a service manual so I can try and trace the fault.

    What is the fault?

    Are the channels just cutting in & out/no noise/distortion(noisy)?

    Have you tried both Mic and line level inputs?



    If its random channels then its most likey a failing component on the channel strip.

    If you want to sacrifice one desk for parts then you could swap entire channel strips to give you one or two complete desks. A lot of the time , channel strips can be swapped over without the need to solder. Some consoles are easier than others and it may take a long time- if you have to remove all of the knobs and faders. If your not confident with this type of repair then, have it looked at by a qualified repairer.

Hi ****
Behringer are pretty good at supplying schematics and information in PDF form. Have you approached the distributor in your country. They are pretty good at supplying info, and dont usually charge. Just rather see the product sorted out. Email a few and see how you go :)

I have a ep4000 amplifier, how can i connect to a mixer


The rule of thumb is you control your audio on the low side. That means you plug your mics, tuners, audio sources into the pre-amp and then the pre-amp into the equalizer/mixer ant finally the mixer into the power amp and the amp into the "large honkin' speakers". The inter connects on the low side (between the source, the mixer and the power amp are usually done with RCA plugs. Use a good quality set of cables to get good tight connections and solid grounding.
AUDIO SOURCE?MIXER?POWER AMP---
heavy speaker wire sized to your SPEAKERS.

I have a Behringer xenyx 802 audio mixer and have lost the power supply. I tried to buy a replacement, but cannot find any in stock. I'm very resourceful and thought I'd make one. The spec sheet calls for...


No, you can't just jump the pins together. The power supply in the mixer needs two separate 18-volt AC inputs because it makes two supply voltages, +15 and -15 volts.

The external supply is just a potted 36-volt transformer with a center-tapped secondary. I bought an open-box Behringer (not your model, but similar) that was missing its supply, and found this transformer which works fine. (I actually did find a couple of sources for a replacement Behringer supply, but it cost more than I paid for the mixer!) Just connect the three output leads to the appropriate places on the mixer's PC board. In mine, I removed the original input connector and soldered a pigtail with a 3-pin connector from Radio Shack to the PC lands, then attached the matching plug to the transformer leads. You'll also need to provide an enclosure of some kind to prevent contact with the line voltage input to the transformer and to protect the thing if you carry it around.

hi,
check the power outlet socket to which the amp and mixer is connected. if there is any loose contact in that power socket, this problem can occur. try to use a good surge protector with emi filter for connecting the amp and mixer.
ok

I have a Behringer 2642a mixer and a Roland 201 Space echo. How do I connect the echo into the mixer? There are so many input and outputs on the back of the mixer! Pete


This is relatively easy. All you need are two stereo RCA cables and RCA to 1/4" adapters. Plug the 1/4" adapters in to the FX1 send jacks on your mixer ( 1 only if you want mono echo, 1 & 2 if you want stereo ), and the other 1/4" adapters into your echo units in and output jacks - of course if you have 1/4" cables, you won't need the adapters.
The output of your echo unit then plugs into the FX return jacks on your mixer. Set your FX1 and FX2 send controls on the channels you want echo up to the 12 o'clock position and turn up the FX send masters also. You should see some level indication on your echo unit. The turn up the FX return controls on your mixer to the extent you want echo.
You may have to do some adjusting of all controls on the mixer and echo unit to get just the right amount of "dry" and "wet" sound.

How would you connect a Roland Space Echo direct into a Behringer 2642a mixing desk? Have tryed all inputs/outputs with nothing. Could this be because the mixing desk has ballanced ins/outs and the Roland...


In order for this to work, you need what is called an "insert" cable. This will have a balanced 1/4" connector on one end and 2 1/4" mono-connectors on the other. The balanced connector is also known as a TRS connector (Tip,Ring,Sleeve). You should have "insert" jacks on the mixer. Place the balanced connector into whatever insert you wish to use (usually this is inserted into the main insert). One of the 1/4 plugs is for input, one for output. I don't know which is which for your specific unit, you will have to experiment. Keep us posted. Dan

Echo into mixer


I think the Echo's output goes into the mixer's input.You should be using one's output into other's input...that's how things work.If you r talking about both the system's input then they won't work with each other. Other thing is that if it's mono then there r cable available for the use which transfers mono to stereo input and vice-versa.

Connecting a guitar amp to a mixer amp


Hi cliff

Connect either of the XLR DI output of the Behringer directly to a MIC IN channel on the Powerpod using a standard Microphone cable. If you wish to push a stereo sound then connect both(L + R) of the XLR DI outputs from the amp... that's about all you need to do. The only reason you need to use stereo(both XLR Outs) from the Behringer is if you want a full stereo FX output from the amp, otherwise you can get away with 1 connected. You may need to back the gain off for those channels on the power pod. You can get a manual for the Powerpod from here

and user manual for the acx900 here

Hope this has helped you, If not, feel free to ask any questions. Cheers.
