Old age has finally caught up with both myself and your vintage Peavey. Things like shorted diodes and transistors sometimes do not physically give themselves away, Also, many times it takes a trained eye to discern the components that have failed in a more discrete manner. It's either repair shop or replacement time which I recommend the latter.

My Rockola Tempo 1, just stopped mid record. Previously the carousel would slow down/hesitate at a certain point when selecting, but never stopped. Switched it on occasionally, with no movement.


I would put money on the belt snapping. 5 years is about right. Especially if you do not use it often. The slow down and hesitate is even more indication of a belt getting hard and then slipping and snapping. They need to keep moving to stay soft. Get a new belt and you will be likely good to go.

Why does my fuse blow out when i turn the amp on?


sounds like you have a dead short internally and unless you find and fix it will continue to blow fuses .

Peavey xr1200 blows 8A fuse after about one second. Old mixer, seldom moved, has worked fine for years


If it blows a fuse when powered on, it has a dead short somewhere. Old units do this when the capacitors (filters) get old and dry out. These create dead short circuits. I recommend going through the unit and change out the bad ones. They can usually be spotted easily. They look like little cans glued on the board with an "X" on top. They are usually blue, gray, or black. The X on top is a weak spot allowing the top to open or pop up when they go bad.

Peavey xr 8600 about 6 yrs old used weekly heard a loud pop them a low emiting hum no sound comes thru .... is it time for a tech ? or dose it sound like an easy fix like fuse or something power on board...


Check the caps in the PSU, these give out over time although not normally when used regularly. You may be lucky and be able to see one or more with bulging tops. If you can replace them and all MAY be OK. Whilst in there check for any visible signs of anything burnt or blown. If it looks too bad or there is nothing obvious it's a trip to the repair shop for certain.

How can you tell if a fuse is blown on a XR 8600 power amp by peavey?


The fuse is probably placed near the power cable entrance in the power amp.
Pick it up from it's placing dock and look for the wire inside. If the wire is whole, the fuze is fine, however, if the wire inside the fuze is missing or burned, the fuze needs to be replaced.

One side of my peavey xr86000 power mixer blew a fusework


Any unit that blows fuses needs to be serviced. Do not keep putting in fuses only for them to be blown again. Each time you put in a fuse and it blows, it will create more damage to the amplifier.

Sound cuts out


check the free air circulation in the power amp module, also check your speaker's impedance, let me know further, sorry for the late answer.

I have 110v XR 1220 power mixer and friend of mine plug into 240v power point, blown the two transistors ou. I do not know what short of transistors are they?


There are dozens of transistors in the unit... we can't guess which you might be refering to. The power supply of the 1200 series mixers have fuse before each part of the supply for the preamp sections.

Iis ALL your equipment powered from the same receptacle? It had better be... ground bounce can destroy input circuits in these units. I don't have the schematic but a common problem where XLR connectors go into a mixer is they have radio-frequency noise suppression caps to ground from each side of the XLR input. These caps are often lower voltage rating and can be popped by ground bounce or ungrounded equipment being connected before the ground connection is made. When one goes, there is loss of half the voltage or 6 Db of power gain. Since these RCA's are right at the XLR they MAY connect and have these caps and one may have shorted. That means the repair shop I am afraid unless you are adept at electronics. Most of these mixers are a pain to work on that area as all the knobs and screws have to come out/off to get the circuit board away from the panel to work on... I wish I had the service manual to give you more info...

PLEASE in the future power all equipment from the same receptacle or power source AND for units that don't have three wire power cord, NEVER change cables that can break the ground connection such as the RCA cables while power is on to any of the equipment. This will save repair bills...

Chances are one of the power amps has shorted. Replacing the fuse probably fried additional components. Unless you are electronically adept this is NOT a DIY repair.

Expect that this is going to be an expensive repair as often quite a few transistors and other components fry when one goes in these power amps.
