Auto shut off hot

I have a Peavey 680 XRD powered mixer. It seems to overheat and shutdown after 30 min of use, even with a "light load". Any idea's of why it would overheat so fast?

A faulty transistor or IC that has failed, it probably overheats before any other device. You should shut the amp down when it happens, then feel carefully around for the hottest part. I would replace that. Or you can power the amp back up wait till it acts up, then spray that hot part with Servisol Freezer spray. If it comes back on, then you know it's faulty. If not try another part, with the spray, only one at a time.

Fuses blow because of an overload. Generally caused by a short circuit transistor(s) in the power amp section. Easy to spot with an ohm meter it will be like you have touched the test probes together!

I have an old late 70s Peavey PA-400 powered mixer. It's a workhorse that suddenly started doing the following: As soon as you turn it on - both speakers hum pretty loudly, and the back of the PA...


As these units get old, the solder joints can start to fail. Also, come of the components are getting tired. If you have no electronics experience, bring this to a servicer. I typically overhaul these units for about $100 plus parts. In most cases, the parts costis less than $20. These are solid units and you can probably get another 30 years out of it.

Part of the overhaul should be reseating all of the output transistors and replacing all of the heatsink compound as well as cleaning out all of the pots and switches.

Keep us posted.

The signal lights all flash on and off and the unit will not power up..


This is a common issue with peavey mixers and generally speaking could be addressed by checking the opamps supply voltage which should be -15V at pin-4 and +15V at pin-8, this should help to troubleshoot the issue, let me know to help improvement.

Peavey 2600 Low input = Complete Cutout


I'm not quite sure of how the two amps are interacting here, so I'd like to request that you describe the entire hookup. Sending a higher signal from the mixer should not be a problem, but something is wrong in the setup (I think). Please update this with a description of how you have the mixer and amps connected to the speakers. Thanks, Dan

That was a dumass response and not helpful. I have the same amp and same problem. If you don't have an answer, own up to it.
