Loudbox 100 XLR input not working

This unit was working perfectly a few days ago. I had to pack up and go to a senior's home for a gig. When I plugged in my mic to the XLR input (with phantom ON) it did not work. I tried a different mic (with phantom OFF) and no success. A third mic worked on the channel 1 input for a 1/4" jack. Any ideas what I should look at, check or replace would be appreciated. Hopefully I am just missing something obvious and it is an easy fix. Thanks

SOURCE: Low volume from Fishman Loudbox

I have seen defective XLR cables so check it with an ohmmeter. It is possible the mic input preamp has been damaged. If that is the case, the unit will have to be repaired.

My Behringer PMP1280S INPUT Chanel 1 is no longer working, after pulling out the mic XLR plug whilst the amp was still turned on.


You should be able to unplug a mic from the xlr input with the unit on with no problem.
I beleive the problem is that the xlr input jack has one or more legs broken off the board. If you dsassemble the board and resolder the three legs to the board you'll probably fix the problem.

I have a Jackson bass guitar bought almost two years ago. We had a gig and I noticed that the sound is not good enough. I was thinking that it was cause maybe of electric low voltage. Until i lost the...


I would say, that it probably needs a new 9V battery. It had some time to gain some juice after the gig. If a fresh one doesn't help, then the problem could've been the equipment or power outlet distribution at the gig site.

What's your problem?I have two Fishman amps.The older Loudbox 100 single channel and a Loudbox mini. I am trying to find the service manual for the older fishman as I have a fault with it and the


Fishman iis you best bet http://www.fishman.com

You can download the user manuals, they do have a block diagram, but the scan is pretty bad.

It may end up the person looking at it is going to need to rely upon their general knowledge.

My own suggestion is to pull the chassis out so you can work on it while powering it. And then work your way through the amp with either a signal source plugged in at the input, and with high impedance headphones with test lead ends, go through each audio stage carefully. until the fault is isolated. If it is not caps or the rectifiers in the power supply, faulty ground connections to chassis or faceplate, a faulty 4558 is most probable. The headphone approach is the fastest way to address this last one. If a different series of preamp chip is used, a good source for the IC datasheets in general is Digikey http://www.digikey.com and parts too.

I bought a second hand Fishman LoudBox Performer. The problem is that the Aux-in for the headphone doesn't work. So sick... What can I do? tnx


I don't understand your question. The "Aux in" is just that an input that goes to the power amp. Please note that the Fishman Loudbox does NOT have a headphone jack so don't be disappointed as there plain isn't a headphone jack on this unit. I would recommend that you get a small headphone amplifier for the purpose... or even go to a thrift store and get an old stereo system that has a headphone jack and use that.

Heavy radio interference when the amp is in use. It's worse at night. I'm using a Taylor 816 acoustic electric guitar with Taylor's balanced quarter inch to XLR cable into my Loud box Performer. Nothing...


Well, the first thing is to find if it is the amp or the guitar. Plug in a guitar cable WITHOUT being in the guitar... is the interference there? If not, the pickup of the interference is in the guitar electronics. In either case, bypass caps need to be instaalled in the offending unit near the input to bypass the interference to ground. You will need to seek someone familiar with electronics to fix this. There is a chance that the only cure will be to distance yourself from the radio transmitter. The transmitter has to be an AM radio type as FM would not generate audio in your system.

HI, My behringer 32 channel eurodesk mixer's some of the channels not working. No sound for the mike input. Please help. I am in phoenix, where can i take this?


Has somebody spilled liquid into the unit? Are you using XLR to XLR mic cables? If using condenser mics you need Phantom power on else NOT.

If the faders are noisy, use CRC226 in them. You can get that at Home Depot in the electrical dept.

NEVER use contact cleaner such as Deox.it or BlueShower in faders... it wrecks them

The reverb (or any effect) on my Fishman Loudbox 100 has become unreliable. It goes in and out randomly.


If you have a pedal input, you may be getting FALSE trips of this.

You may have a pedal jack with switch that is marginal.

TRY putting a pedal into the effect pedal input IF your unit has that and SEE if it acts stable.

These jack and jack switch problems are a pain on all these amps... any brand.

My Fishman Loudbox 100 bass speaker buzzes- what could it be? Someone suggests it could be a poor ground, and to replace the input wire, etc. Does he mean the guitar input cable? The speaker does not sound...


It is a poor ground but it is not necessarily in your amp.
If it is only buzzing when you have a guitar or other piece of equipment connected try a new lead cable.
If it buzzes all of the time......remove the cover at the rear of the amp and remove control panel.
Inspect the feed line to the input. If it is loose or broken....repair or take to have repaired.

Buzzing sound coming from the speaker at certain frequencies. more so when the bass is cranked. do i have to replace the speaker? or could it just be loose??


That is happening because your grounds went bad. Without grounds, then the amp will produce a buzzing sound. I would replace the input wire, that is probably the problem
