This is a serious problem. If you spilled liquid into the unit, expect serious internal damage.

DO NOT keep replacing fuses as you may be creating further damage.

Best scenario is if the input to the power supply has shorted diodes or capacitors. Worst is that part of the circuit board has been burned.

Taking it to a shop or having electronic skills and opening the unit up to troubleshoot are the options.

Transformer appears dead no lights no output


Transformers are VERY reliable. Look for another problem... rectifier, filter caps, fuses, regulators. There is a main fuse and if it is blown, repair the unit before applying full power. To test the unit, put a 40 watt light bulb in series with the hot side of the power cord. The light will act as a resetable fuse and will light when there is a short within the mixer, thus absorbing most of the voltage. Enough current will flow to diagnose the problem.

Channel 16 to 24 the "solo" buttons do not


This is probably a loose or damaged cable within. These channels I believe are grouped in groups of eight, so two groups would be dead for this function.

Here is your schematic:

I need a part. a fader for a SR24?4?2 VLZ PRO.


Removing all the knobs from a section of the board where the bad fader is can be a hassle.and sometimes some of the nuts from jack or screws from some connectors.

You are probably better to order the part from Mackie to get the exact part. Most are made by ALPS and I get ones for some equipment from DigiKey.com or Mouser.com. However, it does take a bot o knowledge to get the correct part and sometimes requires cutting the shaft of one that is too long.
One MUST match the mounting holes, resistance value, length of throw AND the "taper". Yours will probably be a standard "Audio taper" for the main output.
