Need to find someone who carries out a general service and repairing/replacing a few damaged sliders on the desk in North East UK, any ideas????

Just a little info as I don't know service places there... the faders are not that expensive usually under 3 USD, however the labor to get at them can take a bunch. USUALLY all the knobs must be removed and any jacks must have nuts and washers removed... and XLR jacks often have screws to remove... all this to get the board out to access the faders. Hint: Since labor is the largest portion of this, have the faders all changed unless there are ones you just haven't used.

I have an Allen & Heath 16:2 DX with two fuzzy preamps. Tried contact cleaner with no improvement. Sounds like a preamp problem - lower volume than the rest of the channels with distortion as more...

NEVER, NEVER put contact cleaner into the faders!!! It removes the lube and the faders will be damaged in short order. Try using CRC226 available at Home Depot in the electrical dept. Use ONLY the CRC226 as there are other CRC products that are not applicable. Squirt some in the center of the slots... not too much and work the sliders... if they improve try a little more... If they are still bad, replace the sliders... it is a MISERABLE job involing removing mass number of knobs, screws, etc... and then getting/finding the replacement fader control. Usually I get them from or and sometimes the actuator tab has to be trimmed to length with tin snips so knob will be at right height. The fader must have the same resistance and TAPER as the original as well as mounting tabs.

My new Takemine cannot be tuned as the strings are laying flat on the 15th fret and just buzz out

Take it back to the shop where you bought it and ask them to set it up properly for you. It's an expensive guitar it should be supplied correctly set up.

How hard would it be to change a fader control on a peavey escort 2000

Changing faders USUALLY involves removing all panel hardware so that circuit board can be removed to get at the fader. It is often a LOT of work with a boit of hazards along the way.
If the control is noisy I want you to try something before replacing the fader. Get a can of CRC226 available at Home Depot in the Electrical department... about $2.70 for a can. Using the included plastic spout tube, squirt a bit into the center of the control where the knob is. Work it back and forth and then put a little more in and test if it is better or fixed.
NEVER use DeOxit or Blue Shower in faders!!!!! It removes the lube that is required in the fader.

I just bought one last night. I love it so far. I really don't no how to use it. My first question is how do I connect my monitors.? My next one is how do I use a mic. I have tried with the xlr input and...
there is the manual
But to actually answer some questions for you as well.
1. How do I connect it to my monitors?
Out of the back of the console there is a Main Out : Left and Right. there are two sets, one is XLR, second is 1/4 in. Run those to Powered Speakers and Voila.
Note: If you are using unpowered speakers then you will need a poweramp to run speakers.
2. and 3. first make sure your fader is all the way down
Once you plug in your microphone the top white knob is your gain preamp actually turning your voice going into the board up.
Second set your Main Mix fader: far right faders to 0. Then, the channel your microphone is on bring up the fader and you should start hearing some of your vocal through the monitors.
4th. At the Top right there are two sets of stereo ins (RCA) all you need is a 1/8 in to RCA cable coming out of the Headphone/Line Out of your computer.
Good Luck, Cody J.

While pushing the fader knob on after cleanig the number 5 and 6 faders seemed to shift from behind the panel and those chanels are completely out.

You may have destroyed the faders. If excessive force is applied to put the knob on, then the resistance element may be cracked. ALWAYS only put the button on at one end of the throw of the fader. The channelfaders appear to be 10K, probably audio taper. Most are made by ALPS. You can probably get replacement from either or Often the tab for the knob is too long and has to be cut off and de-burred. Removing the faders from the board REALLY requires a soldering station/de-soldering station as it is easy to damage the circuit board. Do NOT use solderwick as you would need too much heat to remove solder from the back side... you need a solder ****** type. Mesure the throw of the slider as a first step to find replacement. Next, match the hole pattern, and then next the resistance value and finally the taper, in this case, audio.
Pay attention to the type of tab for the knob...
It is a lot of work removing all the knobs, all the nuts on the 1/4 inch jacks, and screws, including those for the XLR jacks.

The fader is likely a dual pot. The manufacturer is likely ALPS. You need to match the board hole layout, slider throw, resistance, AND TAPER.

There will be a number on the side of the pot that will have the resistance and taper... It is likely an "A" taper which is an audio log taper.

Replacing this involves removing about the right 1/3 of knobs, screws, and jack mounting nuts and washers to remover the circuit board the pot is mounted on.

There are connecting cables to be removed.

Try to find part at or Note that the handle MAY be too long. Shorten the handle with tin snios and remove the burr.

BEFORE any of this is done, you should investigate to make sure it is the fader. If the left channel is intermitent scratchy then the fader is likely bad, These will get scratchy before they fail... If that is not the scenario, then there probably is something else bad.

Since the board is similar to the eurodesk model, on that one DO NOT plug mono 1/4 inch plugs into the mains output 1/4inch jacks as those are TRUE TRS balanced lines.

Sound only coming out opf left channel

Probably there are dirty contacts inside the assign switch, also it could be a bad solder contact on the switch or there around.

The switch can either be removed and cleaned or replaced.

Cleaning is a bit delicate procedure, but can actually be done, you need to take the switch apart, taking care not to damage any of the parts, then you need to clean the inner contacts and the contact making clamps with some fine sandpaper.

Be sure to put everything back together as it was otherwise the switch may not work properly or it may not work at all (be gentle with the contact making clamps, they can easily be damaged / squashed).

It could also be a problem with faders or preamps, but i would take a look at the switch first.
