The circuitry is a bit complex for that PFL light. The LED is driven by a transistor T38 type BC846 to turn it OFF by grounding out the current coming by way of teh MUTE LED or the MUTE switch (SW14) horts out the MUTE LED. There is a 1K limiting resistor from +15 volts feeding the two LEDS in series.

IF transistor T38 is open the PFL will be on. HOWEVER T38 will also be turned off if transistor T44 (BC846 type NPN) or if capcitor C90 2ufd/50v is shorted OR if resistor R253 is open OR is switch SW8 (PFL DPST )is not contacting the ground side of of the half tied to R247. If R247 is open that will also cause the PFL LED to illuminate...

AND if the signal coming in is at clippling level the PFL LED will light.

All that circuitry serves as a clip detector plus the PFL function.

Verify you are not sending clipping level into the channel first... turn the trim off. If not, you are in for major surgery as all the knobs for that section of the circuit board and the screws for the XLR's and the 1/4 inch jacks must come off as well as some support screws IF it is necessary to access the top side of the board... Maybe you will get lucky and the bad component MIGHT be on the bottom of the board.

We are trying to purchase a pmp mixer for our church choir. What's the difference between the pmp 3000 and the pmp 4000? Thanks!


The answer is "Not Much"... they upped the rating for power out and added 1000 to the model number... I don't know of any circuitry difference between them... it would probably be minor. Functionality is the same.

PMP Mixers hazard


When using Speakon adapter cables with 1/4 inch plugs, the sleeve of channel A is the hot and not the tip of the plug. Inadvertent shorting of this to ground can blow that channel of the amp.

One side of my europower pmp 5000 is out, the other is fine.....what up?


What is up is one of the two power amps is blown... I know this problem... It is USUALLY the rearmost channel which goes to the left Speakon faacing the back. Weak insulation between layers of the multilayer circuit board arcs and fries three transistors and a diode and sometimes a few more components. It takes a lot of skill to restore the module and is beyond most repair shops. A whole new module costs about $155 from Full Compass. The amp is an HCA2400 module, but you MAY need the Behringer part number to order it from Full Compass. Also please read my tip on Fixya for PMP mixers regarding the hazard when using 1/4 inch plugs from the Speakon connectors... the Channel A sleeve is the "hot", not the tip and if you ground the sleeve, goodbye channel A...

My europower pmp 2000 powered mixer wont turn on and the fuse appears good. I turned it on and it immediately turned off ,nothing smells burnt. any ideas on what it could be


This is likely a power supply failure, possibly brought on by a failure of one of the amp channels.

This is probably close to your supply:

I want to know how to send the signal from a Europower pmp 3000 to two external amps


Plug a balanced TRS (tip ring sleeve) cable into either main or monitor 1/4 inch jacks and then into the amp. ALWAYS use balanced lines AND power the mixer AND the amps from the SAME receptacle to avoid damage from ground loop bounce,

No amp output.amplifier damage


You will have to have it repaired. Also read my tip regarduing the PMP mixer/amps that if you use 1/4 inch cable plugs to speakers, the SLEEVE of channel A is hot, not the tip. It the sleeve shportss to somehing that is ground, goodbye Channel A or more. This is not in the book.
