My Behringer PMP1280S INPUT Chanel 1 is no longer working, after pulling out the mic XLR plug whilst the amp was still turned on.

You should be able to unplug a mic from the xlr input with the unit on with no problem.
I beleive the problem is that the xlr input jack has one or more legs broken off the board. If you dsassemble the board and resolder the three legs to the board you'll probably fix the problem.

Why I am having trouble using channel 3 on my Bose tonematch the XLR is fine but the 1/4 inch does not work

On the T1® the first three inputs are combo inputs that take both XLR and 1/4" jacks. You want to connect your guitar to the combo jack (in the middle of the XLR input). The 1/4:" jack below that is actually a line-out.

How do I attach power amp to 1832 mixer

There are a number of configurations for a mixer like the 1832, the most common are PA system and Recording system. There are Main output jacks which carry the mix as summed in the main faders. These in a PA system would feed the pa amplifiers which drive the house speaker system for the audience. These connectors are XLR 3 pin type on the rear, intended for professional pa amplifiers which use balanced +4dbv line input level. Amplifier which have 3 pin XLR connectors for input signals can accept that high level signal. For home style HiFi amplifiers, the signal level is nominally -10DBv and balanced or unbalanced signal lines with 1/4in diameter phone plugs which are connected to the mixer by way of a second set of Main output connectors which are 1/4in phone jacks. Use whichever amplifier input level your amp has.
If you are not using it as a main PA house mixer, but using it for recording, the main output connectors go to a 2 channel recorder or computer sound card recorder. The power amp and your monitor speakers are connected to the connectors labeled "Control Room" (CTRL Rm). These output are useful for recording because the signal through the mixer can be monitored from several buses, Solo, main mix, selected by buttons provided. The buttons only affect the signal heard through the control room monitors, and not the main output which only sees the main mix so selecting "solo" does not interrupt the signal going to the recorder while the engineer in the control can be checking other signal paths through the board.

XLR connector tip separated from the 1/4' connector and is stuck.

solved with glue and screw!just to make sure: ccctierney was probably speaking about a trs 1/4' connector, not an xlr one - xlr connectors don't really have any kind of tip that could separate, do they?

anyway, i bought a new zoom h4n and after my first recording the tip of a 1/4' trs "jack" connector kept stuck inside one of the "combo" sockets, making me really unhappy.

after several hours of attempts to put it out with all kinds of nails, needles, pliers, scissors etc, i finally succeeded: i found a screw (wood spin) of appropriate size, dipped its tip into a drop of quick setting two-part epoxy glue (the one i used is sold under the name "furtopur" in my country - czech rep., i'm pretty sure something similar you can get anywhere), wrapped the screw into a piece of paper to protect the connector from being glued, put it inside and had a coffee to let the glue harden. after pulling then, here we go, the tip was out, see the photo!

Can someone please explain how to link up outboard EQ/comp to my Fostex 160? Advice most appreciated! Best, Stu. I want to linkup a TL Audio 5013 EQ and a 5051 Compressor to my Fostex 160. What method...

Hiya, you will need to make up a new jack cable with a stereo jack that then leads to 2 mono jacks. The tip goes to one jack and the ring goes to the second jack. In the Fostex there are 4 SEND/RECIEVE sockets. these are the interface jacks. Plug the stero jack into one of them Then the jack that connects to the ring goes to input of the EQ, the OUT of the EQ goes to IN of the COMP and then OUT of the COMP goes back the other Jack plug connected to the tip (the grounds are common byt he way and connected together in the stereo jack). The EQ and COMP are now connected into that channel you have chosen. See pic attached

Best of luck!!3f1796c.jpg

Input wires broken loose, not sure where the go to

The center pin is your tip..which should have a wire going from 1/4" jack to the XLR jack. Pin 1 is earth ground...should be coming from 1/4" jack sleeve. Pin 3 would come from the 1/4" jack ring.

If you are still having trouble, post links to pictures of the internals of the guitar showing the assembly.

Recording with Peavey 480 mic

In order for phantom power to work, you need a balanced cable. That needs 3 conductors. With the mono cable you do not have the phantom power available.

Linking to a dvd recorder

Connect your camera to the DVD using 3 prong RCA cable.
The DVD recorder has 3 composit (RCA) inputs. the input names are also the channels names therefor:
Front panel input: F-1
Rear panel Aux-1: L-1
Rear panel Aux-2: L-2

Add additional mics on the vocopro gigman all in one system

Putting spliiters on the input of a Mic priamp to connect to Mics to one pre is a bad idea. There are lots of techy reasons why, but the short version is "Don't Do it"

So how to solve your problem..

If you have a spare Line input you could buy a cheap external mixer, which will take the microphones and provide an appropriate level signal to your machine.

Something like this ought to do it..

If you have no line inputs, then you can use the output of the mixer into a DI Box to match the levels and use your exisiting Mic ins.
