I recently bought a powered mixer the Behringer Europower PMP 1000 and it has blown a fuse which was a ceramic 5 amp 20mm I have tried to replace this with a glass fuse but it still blows. The desk is under warranty as I only got it on 31st March 2008. Can you advise me. Thanks John Chisholm, Music Without Tears email musicwithouttears@talktalk.net tele 01224 706091

Hi John,

If you would pls have a look at the blown glass fuse:
1. if there are scorching/burnt/dark marks on the glass housing, then it is most likely that there is a major electronic failure;
2. if the cut of the fuse wire is clean, then chances are the problem is only slight. In some instances, it is also possible that the glass fuse you used is a fastblow whereas the ceramic was possibly slowblow. As the name implies, their reaction time differs.

Additionally, if you were able to use the unit for some time before the fuse blew, it is possible that the unit was driven a tad hard causing the amps to draw higher current from the power supply thereby causing the blown fuse.

If the incident happened right after powering it up for the first time and you were not able to use it even for a while, another possibility to consider is that the unit's input voltage setting is not in accordance with what locally is available in your current location (110/220).

Other than replacing the fuse, I wouldnt recommend doing anything else as the warranty may be void. Having said that, your best bet may then be to contact the dealer and ask for a replacement or repair service.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My vr-507 shut down to protect my speakers but will not power up now.


Sounds like the output transistors in the amp are blown. Try powering on without speakers attached - if it still shuts off your amp is blown and needs to be repaired.

I think Mute signal activated in your power mixer. This can be due to some cold solder joints or lose connection in unit.
Need qualified service technician to check it physically.

Here are all the specs.

If you could look them over it tells what kind of adapter you need to power the unit. I would also need to know what kind of power you are plugging into ie 120 vac etc. Look at the sheets and let me know. I will then try to find what you need or perhaps explain how to make what you need.

Hi I just recently purchased a Behringer GMX 212 and had similar volume dropout on the clean channel only Channel 2 works better and has more punch in clean mode.I went to the shop where I purchased it with a 7 day warranty from some indian dude here in Nadi Fiji, and there was another GMX 212on the floor so I decided to try it out. This was a new amp. I plugged into the clean channel and turned it up full volume on guitar and amp adn heard the volume drop of in the amp in almost a curve and then the whole amp just cut out. We unplugged and waited, turned the amp off, and then on and stil no sound. We then tried the guitar and cord in another amp. The other amp was fine. Can you solve this problem.......my gut feeling is this happens a lot to Behringer amps.

Kenwood KR-A4070 blowing 5a 125v fuses


I am guessing that the ceramic resistor is close to the output transistors. I would also guess that one or more of the output transistors has shorted. This causes a high current draw that is blowing the fuse. You could also have a power supply problem. The ceramic resistor is a .22ohm dual emitter resistor that is used in the output stage. The transistors located close by are probably shorted and should be replaced. Start there and let us know what happens once the transistors and the resistor are changed.

Behringer europower pmh5000 turn it on big flash and smoke came out of vent no longer works did smell hot when it was last used


The output section has shorted output transistors. The increased load on the driver section probably smoked a few capacitors and resistors. Until the unit is repaired, you won;t get anything out of it. I would figure on $25-$50 in parts for the repair plus the local labor rate.
