Zoom b2 powers up with batteries, but not the power supply


Some possibilities:
  • Damaged on the DC-IN socket.
  • Broken solder joints on the center pin of the DC IN socket (see figure: -V). Resolder.
  • Damaged (broken) in D2 or R76. Replace

It blinks with "be" and turns off


It may be "but" that you're seeing, which indicates the batteries are low. Use the AC adapter made just for this model only, and the guitar needs to be plugged in to turn the unit on. A full manual for this Zoom model can be found here:

Zoom g1x dc supply not working, my zoom g1x is working when battery operated but if i connect it to a adaptor there is no power, i've already checked my adaptor and it was properly working, what can i...


Is the unit old?? Is it stored in an environment that has temperature fluctuations?? It could be the terminals on the input of the unit have dry jointed. This is when the solder lifts away from the circuit board. I have had the same problem on my ZOOM MRS1608 recording desk. Resolder the connections on the input. The base plate will problably remove easy enough to get to the point where the adapter is soldered onto the circuit board.

Good luck

No amp output.amplifier damage


You will have to have it repaired. Also read my tip regarduing the PMP mixer/amps that if you use 1/4 inch cable plugs to speakers, the SLEEVE of channel A is hot, not the tip. It the sleeve shportss to somehing that is ground, goodbye Channel A or more. This is not in the book.

Mine did the same thing. Just by chance we had a universal laptop power supply unit with interchangeable tips made by powertran & my wife said to give it a try. The unit has a display window on it & it reads 16.9 volts when the zoom is running. When I plugged it in I couldn't believe it was going through it's start up menu. On the package it says 15 - 20 volts DC 90 watts & I reckoned it shocked the zoom into working again...well anyway, it worked & the zoom is running again. The power box package cost $89AU that I got at an electronics store.

I want to know where i can get a new fuse for my pmp 5000b-212XL powered mixer ?? and waht kind of fuse is it ?


If the fuse has blown DO NOT replace it without repairing the cause of the failure. You will likely do more damage to internal components. Take the unit for repair before applying power again. I have repaired many of these and first a failure occurs in one of the power amps... usually the A channel, then people replace a fuse that protected the power supply and that blows the power supply taking out another $30 of components and $200 labor. (they are hard to change) If the unit is under warranty, exercise your warranty immediately. There is a weak spot in the channel A power amp.

ALSO please read my tip on here about a hazard in PMP series powered mixers. It is in regard to using Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables... NOTE that the BARREL of a 1/4 inch speaker cable or adapter from the Speakon is the HOT side for channel A and if you ground it inadvertenly, goodbye channel A power amp!!!

I have a 1680S. How do I hook up my in-ear monitor? I plan to run two house speakers but no floor monitors. Thanks,


DO NOT connect your in-ear monitors to the power amp out using the MAIN/Mon speaker option as it would be goodbye hearing and fried ear buds..
Get a very small and in-expensive headphone amp and connect its input to the 1/4 inch Monitor output jack.

I'm a Zoom 9000 owner (since '93, I think) Did you try batteries only? Are you plugging the guitar into the "in / power" jack and not mistakenly using another jack? When you plug in the guitar, in to the Zoom 9000 does the window come on with the settings shown? Sorry, I know some of these are obvious but always the chance of us being human. If all that seems fine, then I would read though a manual to see if maybe it is a setting problem, i.e., sound somehow got inadvertently turned off. If you don't have one, an internet search will lead you to one. Sorry, wish I knew more.
