Question about Behringer Pmp3000 16 Channel Audio Mixer

Bought my PMP3000 in the UK but now I need to replace transistor

Bought my PMP3000 in the UK but now I'm looking for a transistor M50D060S or better yet a 120V power board (instead of the 220V) if feasible. How can I get this and which is better to replace the transistor or the power board?

Behringer pmp3000 board powers up sound on A output no sound on output B

Output B amplifier has a problem. Most likely the output transistor.

I'm Ziro. I need a part list for the main power supply board for behringer pmp4000 mixer, two transistors were removed from it and I need to know the part numbers of each in order to install them.

In my opinion, due to the physical appearance of pmp4000 and pmp3000 look the same, it will most likely also have a common circuit and parts list (at least, most).
Usually Behringer (and all the manufacturers), with the same series / sequence, using the same circuit, the difference is the number of channels only. You can compare the parts list on PMP3000 schematic, with your PMP4000.

You can download from this link.
Hope this helps.

I have a Behringer pmp3000 and the right channel has quit working. I can get sound out of the right side my using the surround feature, but evidently the right amp is not sending a signal. Any ideas?

Yep! The power amp for that side has failed. There is a weakness of insulation in the multilayer board of some of these that causes the problem. If you haven't seen smoke, that is good. Depending on the revision level of the amp module, there will be two or three blown transistors and a Zener diode blown and possible arcing within layers of the board. The repair of the module takes great care and skill due to the arc damage which is internal on the multilayer board. The amp module is a HCA2400 and are rare costing about $160 and probably are out of stock at which is the Behringer parts distributor... I have waited 3 months for simple parts... I had one HCA2400 shipped to me but they had wrapped it so tight in bubble wrap that capacitors were peeled off the board and it had to be returned. They didn't know when they would get more... If you have seen smoke, then two other small transistors and a metering resistor have blown. Worst case is when the power supply gets wiped out as well... that ups the parts ante to about $50 as two expensive IGBT's also fail and a half dozen other parts as well.

I have repaired three of the HCA2400 modules and it takes many hours with dental drill to carve out the burned cancer and then re-insulate and put jumpers where the circuit traces used to be. It is NOT DIY for sure. Replacing the transistors requires a desoldering station. I have one unit that a hacker tried using solder wick and destroyed the board.

I have a behringer pmp3000 powered mixer and have had the output B to go out on it and we have not had it for 3 wks yet. previously we had a pmh3000 and have the same issue 3 times and decided to purchase...

Common problem... If you drive it hard and have any glitch on your speaker cables or bad speakers or cables not completely plugged in, the amp will arc between layers of the multi-layer circuit board in the amp module. Usually it is the rearmost amp that fries...While the parts cost is nominal (less than $20, the labor to restore is extensive. I have repaired 4 of these and it involves carving out burned board, re-insulating, and replacing blown circuit traces with jumpers as well as replacing 3 to 5 transistors, a Zener diode and sometimes a metering resistor.

One can get a new power amp module online. It is an HCA2400 and I have seen them for around $175.

It is VERY important to NOT have flakey speakers or cables and PLEASE read my tip on here regarding one of the amp output being hot on the outside of the 1/4 inch plugs instead of the tip if you use Speakon to 1/4 inch cables.

I am thinking of buying a pmp 5000 from a musician and he said th fuse blew. it wont power up and he said everything went off all at once and wouldnt power back up! he had 3 sets of speakers hooked up and...

No! I have two of the PMP5000 and one PMP3000.

I could tell you what parts are blown. If nothing lights up what has happened is the power amp (Usually the rearmost amp) has arced and destroyed the three switching transistors and a Zener diode and sometimes a metering resistor and two surface mounted transistors. So far parts cost is about $20 and a LOT of labor.

Since the fuse blew, it is possible as is often the case, that the power supply is also damaged. Now the total parts cost is $50 as two expensive IGBT's are blown, a regulator IC and four driver transistors for the IGBT's and one other surface mounted transistor and usually a diode. If a fuse has been repalced, then often a pair of power resistors associated with softstart are blown. A lot of labor is necessary on the power supply to remove the heatsinks that the IGBT's are on to replace them.

If the amp module (HCA2400) were the only thing, you can get those online complete for $175. Repair of those requires a lot of skill carving out burned board between layers of the multilayer board and restoring connections with jumpers.

You are probably looking at $300 parts and labor to restore this unit. I fix them for my own use, not others.

There is a weakness in insulation between internal and external layer of the circuit board near the rearmost amp and if you play it real load and had a speaker lead come loose the unit can arc and it is all over. There is also a polarity hazard. PLEASE read my tip on here in that regard about this. This applies to the PMP3000, PMP5000, PMP1280 amps.

Im looking for a curcuit diagram for the switchmode power supply in my Behringer PMP3000.

If the supply failed I can tell you which parts to replace... and if it failed there may be a failure in the power amp that caused it. You can contact be directely at fredy2 @ put Behringer in the subject.

The supply when it fails takes out eleven components including two expensive IGBT transistors. If the rearmost amp fried, add at least four more components and a lot of work carving out burned board and wiring around the blown circuit traces.

Europowre pmp 3000 a120v or 220v?

There is a jumper (JP1 or J1). If you cut that jumper, the mixer will operate for 220V. This power supply is the same with the ones used in desktop computers. I did that to my mixer bought from US made for 110v. I replaced that jumper with a switch (from a desktop power supply), I made a whole and I fixed the switch on the pack panel of the mixer. So now, I can switch it manually for 110v or 220v. It's working perfectly. I tested it for long time and no problems. Good luck.
PS. I called the Behringer technical support in the US and they weren't able to teach me that. So I figured it out myself after a big research. See the pictures about my project. :)

Pmp3000 problem power supply.ic circuit problem.number series ic circiut..

I have a PMP5000 that I had to resurect. I had to trace out the power supply to repair it.

I can give you hint: First, a small supply runs directely from the line and generates some of the small voltages. While this starts, the main power caps are charged through limiting resistors. The main switcher is brought online and if the power amps acheive balance, then a relay connects the speakers and shorts the limiting resistors.

This is what is in the 5000 and I suspect the 3000 is similar.

In my 5000, there was arcing at one side of the power amps. The board was burned and three power fets fried. Cancer of burned board had to be carved out and traces replaced by hardwiring.
In addition, the limiting resistors were blown open, both main switching transistors were blown and 4 small driver transistors (surface mounted) and several diodes AND a switching regulator chip (surface mounted).all fried/

Hint: When restarting the unit, put a 150 watt light in series with one of side of the power input to limit the current in case you did not get all the dead bodies out.

This is a class "D" amp which drives PCM waves into a filter which is then the audio output. It is much more efficient thaan a linear amp.
