Question about Mackie 1604 Vlz3 16 Channel Mixer
I have a Mackie 1604 VLZ Pro that every now and then the channels 1,3,5,7 will just go out. When I take of the back panel, I can unplug and reseat all the ribbons and the unit will work fine again for a while. I confirmed with Mackie I had the right rev cable. Could this be an oxidation problem?
Unless you are in super humid environment, this is more likely a crack in the circuit board OR a bad connector on a ribbon cable. Also BROKEN or cold solder joint for a connector pin through the circuit board.
Good way to cause this with ribbon cables is to NOT distribute the load when pulling them off. Often the wires near the edge are stretched and make poor contact with the little forks that pierce the insulation.
CRC226 is a good product to use for contacts. Available at Home Depot in the electrical department. Blue spray can. Use sparingly.
