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 :)

BEHRINGER MIXER UB1832FX PRO, ONE CHANNEL STOPS WORKING SOMETIMES


That can be a real bummer to find. Swap connections with another channel. If the problem channel changes it is the external connections, if not it is the mixer. You would have to quit using that channel or get it repaired.

Behringer mixer Eurorack UB802 is losing partial stereo signal in one channel. When I record (audacity software) I can hear both channels but displays one channel. Is it my computer's audio jack t


Sounds like the output cable from the 802 is not correctly pinned to your input on the computer. Fred is on the right track but you may need to take it a bit further.
It may also be helpful to use a Pro USB audio interface such as the Digigram UAX220v2 (line level version).
If you wish to use the computer's on board sound card consider an IHF/Pro interface that converts balanced audio to unbalanced , and the proper cables. Two 3-wire balanced 1/4-inch from the 802 to the left and right inputs of the interface (XLR Male), then RCA (Red and White) to a 1/8-inch TRS Plug cable onto the the computers audio input.
Henry Engineering's Matchbox HD comes to mind.
Good Luck.

Im thinking about buying a djx750 and have rokit 5 monitors. would this work? what is the best way to connect them, to have good sound? it is just for a home dj setup, all on one desk, two cd decks,...


Here is alink to the manual:http://www.behringer.com/EN/downloads/pdf/DJX750_P0956_M_EN.pdf You should have no problems hooking them up (RCA to RCA). I've been using a Behringer XenyX1222FX board in my recording system for about 4 years now and have been quite satisfied with it's reliability. Try to find a dealer who will demo the mixer for you.

I have recently purchased a Behringer Eurolive 1800 sub, what outs or sends do I use on my mx3242x to the amp


You use the balanced MAIN outputs. They are XLR and you should run those on balanced lines to your AMP which should have EITHER XLR inputs or TRS balanced 1/4 inch jacks to receive them.

DO NOT use mono inputs on your amp... make sure they have balanced inputs.

Note, for SAFETY of your equipment, ALWAYS power any connected stuff from teh same receptacle or power distribution system.

How do I connect my behringer mixer desk to


The first thing to do is to swap teh L & R INPUTS to the amplifier. Did the speaker that works change?
If som the problem is with the setting of the mixer deck. If it did not change, then the problem is with your speaker wiring of the dead speaker, the speaker itself, or that side of the amp.
If the working speaker did swap, that means problem is with the mixer. The question then becomes how are you connecting to the mixer. You should be using TRS 1/4 inch connectors or preferably XLR from the MAIN outputs. These are balanced outputs connections.
If the inputs are from one of the mono inputs, the PAN control for that channel will control how much goes to each speaker... If at center, both will get same signal.
There are so many possibilities that I can't evaluate them until you try the test to find if it is problem of the amp or the mixer that I have given you to try.
