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

Power switch was by-passed in a pinch years ago, but unit has worked fine since. Just began blowing fuse when plugged in.

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.

On my peavey xr1220, when I turn on the power switch the board does not power up. What could be the problem?


Probably a fuse ? I have been servicing a lot of Peavey equipment lately and they have some poor circuit designs, a lot of internal un accessible fuses, I might be able to get more info ?

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.

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.

Why does the 1.6amp fuse blow when the amplifier is switched on?


The owners manual shows a AC fuse for the 8300 as 8amp / 250 volts but doesn't show an external fuse holder for the 8600d. It's unlikely that the 8300 would use a 8amp and your 8600 a 1.6 amp. Double check your original fuse values.

Peavey XR8600D main outs simply stopped working. Unit is less than a year old but I am too far from any repair shop to make any use of the warranties (Samoa, South Pacific). I turned it on one night and...


These had a little switch on the far right side that shifted modes from stereo to main and monitor. Check the position as it is tiny push button. Also try sending line levels DIRECTELY into the power amp inpout jacks to verify the amps are both OK... if not, the repair shop is only option... there is only one main fuse for the amp and if one side is working, then the fuse is good.
