Rane Mixer ttm 54

When phono line 1 is switched on phono the sound level indicator peaks out and creates a loud buzzing sound, when I switch it to line 1, it goes away - it is only when it is on phono. The only thing I did was take off the face plate and spray it with compressed air thinking it had dust inside.

Sounds like a grounding issue or maybe even a power supply issue...

double check the power is snapped into the phone like jack in the back and recheck!

In sound system you have different sound level start with phono level up to line level up to speaker level.-you will switch to phono when you connect phonograph and you will switch to line when you connect another audio source like dvd and video sound.

Mixer and an EQ & amp ?

The order is mixer, equalizer and amp. The output of the mixer connects to the input of the equalizer and the output of the equalizer connects to the input of the amp. The equalizer has three types of input and output connections. They are XLR, 1/4 inch and screw terminals. The mixer will have one or two of the three. Choose XLR if possible on the mixer, choose line level output on the mixer if possible. A XLR male to female cable is needed for the connection. The equalizer has two channels, if the mixer has two output channels the two output channels of the mixer can connect directly to the two input channels of the equalizer. If the amp has two input channels, the two output channels of the equalizer can connect directly to the two input channels of the amp. If the mixer only has one output channel then only one channel of the equalizer can be used and one channel of the amp likewise. A XLR male to female connection cable can be used to connect the equalizer to the amp.

It sounds like you may have a bad cable. The most common place for a small gauge cable (such as RCA, TPS, XLR, etc) with metal connectors to fail is in the stain relief which often fails to live up to its name. An easy way to check this is to grab the cable near the connector and wiggle it. If the sound crackles and changes volume levels suddenly then you may want to try a replacement cable. If the replacement doesn't help, you should use a contact cleaner such as "Blue Shower 2" that is approved for electronics use. Make sure your mixer is switched off and disconnected from its power source before using any cleaners to avoid any risk of electric shock. Apply the cleaner to all exposed output connectors on the mixer. Hope this cleans up your output prolems

Piuoneer DJM600S feedback and cd input problems

Check List :
CD Deck 1 to Channel 1 CD Input
CD Deck 2 to Channel 2 CD Input
Mixer booth output to AMP's AUX or CD input.
use the BOOTH rather than the MASTER
even if you think you've done all these checks, check them again.
trust me I've been a DJ for 15 years & wired up **** loads of systems & still manage to ******* the wiring now & again lol.
you mite need to run an earth from your mixer to your amp.
One more thing, just out of interest you don't happen to have an amp with surround sound do you?
because if you do then switch the effects completely off this should sort it.

Having a hard time connecting various audio components

Yes, it is a little tricky...

1) CD Changer (output) -> CD input on Amp

this is tricky... this will allow you to record to your tape deck, and control the sound via the EQ:
2) Tape Deck (tape out / recout) -> TAPE PLAYBACK on EQ
3) Tape RecOut on EQ -> Tape 1 Playback on Amp
4) Amp Tape 1 RecOut -> Tape Deck Playback / Input / RecIn
in essence, your creating a loop starting from the tape deck, going to the eq, then to the amp, then back to the tape deck to record.

Your EQ has another set of LINE IN and LINE OUT - use the second Tape 2 on the amp to create another loop. This will
allow you to control the EQ for any of the other sources.
5) LINE IN on EQ -> Tape 2 RecOut
6) Tape 2 Playback on Amp -> LINE OUT on EQ

5) Radio Tuner (output) -> Tuner input on Amp
6) DVD/VCR Combo Output -> AV/AUX on Amp

7) PC Computer... you don't have room for this. You can either use the PHONO input, and you'll have to purchase a Line Level Phono Converter
or, get a Y cable and split the signal and share with some other source.

Hope this helps.

Feedback noise from mixer

Your mixer is already grounded, and does not need any additional grounding. It is grounded through the Power Cord.

Now, the feedback might be coming from one of the units you have connected to the mixer. The issue could also be the cable you are connecting to your recorder. Are you recording to a computer, or to some other external recorder (CDR / DVR / MDR, etc?) - try a different cable. Also try the different outputs on the mixer - you have 2 balanced line outputs you can record directly from. Don't use the RECORD OUT line, it's an unbalanced line, and if you want a good quality signal to record, your best bet is to use the XLR outputs. However, that might be connected to your amp or something.

What do you have going to the unit? Disconnect everything, and try by connecting each item 1 by 1, to eliminate where this feedback is coming from. Also, check for any ground loops that you might have, if you have a lot of equipment hooked up in your set up. (Educate yourself on Ground Loops)

If all else fails, get yourself a HUM ELIMINATOR.

Mackee PPM808M 1200 How to set the equalizer

Each channel strip has its own 3 band EQ with knobs that effect the hi, mid, and low.

The mid is centered at 2.5kHz and gives you 12dB of boost or cut in either direction, the high gives you 15dB of boost or cut from 12kHz and up, while the low gives you 15dB of boost or cut at 80kHz and below. At their mid positions these knobs are flat (no cut or boost).

The PPM808M also has two 9 band graphic EQs in the Master Output Section on the front panel, Monitor EQ and Main EQ. These two EQs are the last thing in the chain before the signal leaves the mixer on either of these line outs (monitor line out, or mixer line out).

The 'Monitor EQ' effects output to the monitor speakers on stage (and power amplifier if the 'Power Amp Routing' switch is pushed in).

The 'Main EQ' effects the signal to the main speakers (or the mixer line out).

Each of these 'Master Output' EQs has a Rumble Reduction button which when pressed in engages a low-cut filter which rolls off frequencies below 75Hz and is designed to prevent 'stage rumble' from things like footsteps on the stage being picked up by stage mics. These filters are separate from the graphic EQs and the Main Rumble Reduction switch effects only mono channels 1-6 (not stereo channels 7&8). It also has no effect on the EFX to MAIN or the TAPE IN. The Monitor Rumble Reduction switch however does effect the EFX to MON signal.

Outputting high pitched sounds and master balance switch problem

Maybe the issue is not with your mixer. Maybe its with one of the units you connect to the mixer. Does this happen in all the channels?

If the service company could not duplicate the problem, then the problem might be somewhere else. Double check and replace your cables going to your amp, as well as the cables coming from your CD players and such.
