No sound from F1220D monitor if you "daisy chain" onto next active monitor.

I see no reason why this should happen, assuming you are going into the monitor through the Line In input and going out through the Mix Out jack. As long as the monitor is turned on and the indicator is lit, and the Line level controll is turned up, it should work. Does the monitor work on it's own, with no daisy chained monitors plugged into it?
I would suggest contacting Behringer customer service for an explaination. here is the link-

How do i hook up monitors to mackie1604 vlz pro to where you can hear music and mike.

Plug either a powered monitor or amp and then speaker into one of the aux sends. Now adjust the monitor mix using the appropriate aux send pot on each of the channel strips you want to send to the monitor. Think of the aux send pots as faders for the monitor mix the same as the main fader for the ain mix.

Monitor Channel Making static sounds

Without hearing it it is difficult to be sure what is going on. What happens if you plug the main PA into the monitor channels, do you get the same? Are you trying to get too much into the monitors? static and popping are not the same to my ears, popping sounds more like you are hearing something that's there through the monitors that you're not hearing through the main mix as it may be masked. What frequency is the popping? Does it only happen when levels are high or when the singers are doing 'p' and 'b's etc? do you get it if you put the monitors on the main mix? Are you running the monitors into clipping (although I wouldn't expect this to create a popping? It sounds like a mix issue rather than a fault with hardware.

Good luck. Your mixer only has one aux out to supply only one stage monitor out. Only way to make it work would be to use the panning controls of each channel to different outputs to the Left and Right main outs for stage monitors and aux out as front of house speakers. I would get another separate mixer for monitor such as another efx 12 with every input connected to both mixers, then use the panning and main outputs to that. Sorry. Just not enough of mixer. You need an aux out for each individual's monitor.

We have four submixes that were working well, then all of a sudden the only way we could get sound out of the house speaker was to mix to the mono ''C' mix. Monitor seems unaffected. Any i

The first thing I recommend is to make sure that no mute buttons are pressed and no solo buttons are pressed. Explain a little more specifics about your setup and I can help you more. Sounds like some bad connections, bad cord, or something has blown. Lets stay simple starting out but, I need to know more about your setup, please. Don't forget to use phantom power for any condenser mics.I realize your problem is on the output side of things, just a couple of things to check before we start troubleshooting. Let me know.

Monitors not working on Yamaha EMX512SC, worked once added a keyboard,now we can't get them to work.

Do you mean there is no sound coming from your monitors? Check whether you've accidentally diverted the main-mix signal from main-out (or whatever you have your monitors plugged into). Can you get a headphone mix?Also, dumb question, check that nothing is soloed!

I have a mackie 24 channel mixer , I am trying to hook up my monitors. I need help I don't know how to do it. Recently lost our sound tech guy here at the church.

Decide if you want to use the AUX's or the SUB's for your monitors. (usually use the AUX).

Connect TRS cables from the appropriate AUX sends to thee amplifiers you use for your monitors or your powered monitors whichever you have.

Adjust the level using the AUX level controls for each channel to set your minitor mix.

Normally use the PreFader AUX's so monitor levels are set independent of the slide fader positions.

Here is a big hint for you: Search for "Soundboard" or "Soundboard setup". There are good videos there that might be different than your particular board, but there is enough commonality that you will soon be an expert!

How do i set the treble and bass for mixing while monitoring

Straight up is "flat" which means no boost or reduction of the highs and lows. Use this to listen to the actual sounds without enhancement.

Hooking up powerd monitors to a Mackie 1604 VLZ3

Are you sending the main mix to the monitors or are you giving them their own mix? What about using the sub groups, use 1 for your monitor send.
