1. Turn the main and monitor volumes all the way down (off). Plug a cd player into channel 9/10 and play a track of music of your liking. With the main/monitor volumes still off, adjust the gain on 9/10 until the clip light turns on, then back it down until the clip light just turns off. Put the channel volume at 12 o' clock.
2. With the music still playing, turn up the mains to the desired listening level first, and then adjust the graphic eq until the music sounds good in the room. Remember or mark the position of the volume control. Do not use the channel eq on 9/10 for music that has been mastered properly, leave the eq flat. Once this step is completed then you have now set the main eq.
3. Repeat the same for monitors. Turn off the main volume and then bring up the monitor main volume to the desired level first, then set eq. Now your monitor eq is set properly. Remember or mark the position of the monitor volume.
4. Set up microphone - plug a mic into channel 1 with volume all the way down. Speak or sing into the microphone and adjust the GAIN until you see the clip light, then back down a litttle on the gain. Put the monitor and main volumes back up to the mark from step 2. Now adjust the volume and monitor send on the mic channel to the desired loudness first before adjusting the mic channel eq. Use subtractive eq method to minimize distortion and feedback. ...i.e. if the mic is bassy then turn down the lows, do not ADD highs. If the mic needs bass, turn down the highs.
DO NOT USE CONTACT CLEANER !!!!!! It removes the lube.... If you can find it there, use CRC226 in the faders. You MIGHT be able to restore the fader with it. With the spout put a bit right in the center of the slot and work it. Here I get it in the electrical dept of Home Depot... not sure what they have in New Zeeland. Replacing the fader takes a lot of labor as the panel has to be completely disassembled. You can probably order CRC226 online if you can't find it in a store there. Here it is about $2.75 for a can.
The sliders in almost all of the EQ's in Behringer are linear taper (B). The values are usually 50K. Fo replacement make sure you get matching mounting spacing. Almost all Behringer pots are made by ALPS.
Note that the rotary volume controls are G (graphic) taper, often 50K and are hard to get. trying to get these from the Behringer parts distributor was futile... gave up after 4 months wait.
This is vague,,, there are so many outputs, knobs, LED's that I suspect you have not tried the right combination. I have no idea what your signal sources are... mics... tape... etc.
To start, turn the trim control of one channel that you have a signal source connected. Set all the EQ controls and the pan CONTROLS TO 12 O'CLOCK.
Check that you can trigger the clip light with high level of input. Press the solo button for that channel and using a set of headphones listen for any signal... turn the headphone level up and the slider for that channel...
First do your basic checks,,, try EACH mute button and see the LED light... try each solo button and see that each will light AND also that ANY solo light will cause the RUDE solo light to come on...
You can purchase the channel faders directly from Mackie Service Dept., you can replace them yourself if you're good at soldering - HOWEVER, be advised that disassembling the unit to get at the faders to replace them will require a lot of time and patience if you've never done it before. If the faders are not moving smoothly, it's possible that the wrong type of cleaning spray was used on them and there's a possibility that they could stop moving and controlling sound.
