Question about Fender Passport Deluxe PD-150

Open Question

Connect Fender Passport to external affects.

Hi I have 2 Fender Passports - one is a p250 and the other a pd150. I have just bought a Berhinger xyenex 1002fx mixer as Ido not like the built in reverb on the Fender units. I have read I need to coonect via master outs on the Beheringer desk and into the Aux Return on the Fender. I have done this from the left master out on the desk and into the Passport but it only comes out of one side, one speaker. Should I be running 2 cables out of both master out channels and if so which other socket do I need to connect to the fender? Many Thanks.

SOURCE: The 'protect light' comes on Fender PD150 Portable Sound System

The protect circuit is activated by a current sensing transformer in the *input* of the power supply. If any of the subassemblies of the unit (or all of them in combination) draw excess current then the protect light will illuminate and the power supply shut down to prevent any damage to the system.

The circuitry in the power supply is fairly robust as well as fuse protected so it is unlikely that the power supply itself has failed. More than likely one of your output power transistors has been shorted and it is easy to check this yourself if you are interested in doing so.

Furthermore if you follow a few *simple* precautions you can do this safely and confidently.

Post again on this thread if you are interested and I will spew the details.

SOURCE: I want to connect a keyboard to the Fender Passport 500watt

Plug your keyboard into a line input. Run a cable from the stereo out put jack into a separate amplifier with a speaker e.g. a self contained powered monitor.

These are a real pain to open. You have to remove the front panel to remove a shield to remove the back amplifier power supply area. The power supply is a switching type and has lethal voltages present. Working on this should be done using an isolation transformer. With your symptoms, it is likely one side of the power amp MAY be blown, but do check that the wiring hasn't fallen off and the jack itself. Two pairs of wires come from the power amp to the front panel jacks. document location of ALL the cables you disconnect as they CAN be confusing to restore.

SOURCE: MY Fender Passport P250 went into protect mode. I

This needs to go to the repair shop. The protect mode is turned on when either the power supply has a problem or one or both power amplifiers have a problem. These are often blown components.

These units are HARD to work on. To open you have to first remove then front panel before you can remove the back panel that has the power supply and power amps/heat sinks.

Compare repairs of these units to working under an automobile dashboard!

Hint: On startup, use a series 150 wat lamp to limit current while repairing. SInce these use a switching supply operating off the input line, use an isolation transformer for personal safety.

SOURCE: I'm using an external reverb (T.C. Electronics

The external effects when used would require an effect processor with left and right channels. You need four cables total for the effects... the two channels out to the effect unit and two cables to bring it back to the power amps.

Remember to use your pan controls if you want certain inputs to go more to either the left or right outputs.

Help behringer xenyx 1002fx !!

If you registered your mixer there will be a three year warranty so get it back to your local Behringer service depot. If not check the output from the PSU, if that's OK then I'm afraid it is very unlikey to be economical to repair. Sell it as spares and repairs on eBay.

How to hook up speakers? Sound sounds muffled

You DON'T connect speakers to this... this is NOT a powered mixer... you MUST use external amplifier !!!! You use bvalanced (TRS) cables to a suitable power amplifier which connects to speakers. Some Behringer mixers such as the PMP5000 have built in amplifiers to drive speakers... yours does not.

My beringer europowered 800w mixer blew a fuse ,replaced it ,has blown several more fuse's since,i used a lower 5 amp fuse did not last - 10 amp is standard > is it time to trash this unit?

I don't understand because the Xenyx 1002fx draws only 16 Watts so the fuse should be well less than 1 amp why would you put a 5 amp?

And your 800 Watt mixer???... There is something wrong with this model number as the 1002fx certainly is not 800 Watts. Please supply the correct model numbers so we can help you.

The unit is repairable I am sure.

Problem is likely thermal. Open unit carefully and use freeze mist (circuit cooler) to find bad component.

With that long a time period, it is possibly a component mounted on a heatsink.

Use four (4) TRS cables. Connect from the
AUX "send" (left and right) to the input of the effects unit with two of the cables. Use the other two cables to connect from teh effects out jacks to the AUX "returns" left and right.

Behringer Xenyx 1622FX. Power supply has failed, no +5V rail, other rails are OK, appers to be no input to the regulator. Could do with a circuit diagram. I believe the PSU is used in other mixers.

Suspect a broken circuit trace or broken solder. If they use a 7805 three terminal regulator, check the solder around those pins...
Berhinger does NOT release schematics except to their service facilities... I know... I have tried... I repaair a lot of their stuff and have to trace out the circuits.

Power supply circuits are rather easy except for the switching regulators if they have failed totally.

If only the +5 is dead, you should be only a filter cap and a diode or two away from the problem... Transformer leads and electrolytic leads with their weight are favorite to pull out of solder... On Behringer, often the traces are narrow and can have a crack in them.
