These are a simple DC continuity/short tester.

You just plug both ends of the cable in and there are indicators showing condition.

HOWEVER: I recently found 6 brand new cables that resulted in HUM from mics. These cables had a pair of wires reversed at BOTH ends and contiuity was fine, but the shield was on the wrong pins of the XLR.

If this is your problem, you will find that the shield of the XLR is connected to pin 3 instead of pin 1. The numbering of the pins are weird on XLR connectors with pin 3 at the APEX of the triangle.

Cables MADE IN CHINA... I changed all the connections on site of the gig as I had soldering equipment. I informed the vendor... they had 13000 of these in stock and many must be in the field. They were going to check them,,, I am sure my 6 cables wern't the only bad ones.

Moral of the story: there is more to electrical cables than just continuity!

Behringer CT100...X Pattern on LED grid when testing a mono instrument cable


Yes, a display of "X" means the cable is good. This guy does a good job with laying it all out. There's other modes to check the cable.

Check the cables. If one lead of an XLR-XLR cable is shorted to ground, 6 DB gain is lost. You haven't really supplied enough information regarding cables and model of the manual mixer for us to help much. Do check that ALL of your audio interconnections are BALANCED lines either XLR to XLR or TRS cables. Grounding one side of a balanced line reduces gain 6 DB. Try swapping mic cables and channels to test where the problem is in the system.

When I try to record an audio CD on the internal CDRW from a mixed down song in the VF160 it records it, but adds a horrible, cyclical "hiss" (very loud) over the recording rendering it useless.


I haven't personally used this equipment, but 9 times out 10, a hiss or noise problem is due to damaged or incorrect cables been used.
Check your cables.
Check your gear. If the inputs are TRS (1/4") the make sure your cables are to. This goes for any connection your recorder: balanced cables.
If the inputs are unbalanced, then you would use TS (1/4")

When I recieved my BC Rich Virgo celtic bass there was no problem. I played with it for almost an hour. Later I wanted to play another time so plugged it in. No sound came from my bass. I tried to replace...


Intermittent problems can lead one on a merry chase. The first suspect would be the guitar cable.

Players learn to check the connection to the amp is good by touching the tip of the cable and observe you get hum.

It is UNLIKELY to get two bad guitars so we need to check everything else. Cable is next suspect.

Check the cable IS for intruments and NOT speakers. Check that the tips do not spin. Some cables become worn and the sleeves no longer actuate the switch that turns the battery in the guitar on or the tip fails to make contact. Do not use cables that are intended to connect stereo systems. Use ONLY instrument rated cables.

Sound output is heavily distorted.


Check following things:

1. The master volume control on the SR16 is at least half way up. Turn down the amp as needed. Running very low output of the SR16 and high amp gain is sure to get distortion.

2. Check power adapter is the original and is producing correct voltage.

3. Check that audio cable is high quality instrument cable and not consumer or speaker cable.

Beringher CT100.. X Pattern on LED grid when testing an xlr cable


This site has diagrams... not the best but clear enough.

PLEASE note that the pin numbering is kind of goofy... The pins of both the male and female tie to identical pin numbers.

You PROBABLY have misread the numbering at one end.

A KEY thing is to get the shield on pin 1 at both ends.

I recommend that you uncap BOTH connectors, mate them, and verify the same color goes straight across as you solder the wires..

Note: I had some brand new cables delivered that the shield had been connected to pin 3 (middle one) and I had hum ! Note that this defect would NOT be caught by your cable tester as there was conituity between corresponding pin numbers.

Hi Hat pedal not fuctioning


Obviously the hi hat trigger does not function properly, it either does not generate enough signal, or the signal doesn't come thru well, or the signal comes thru well but it doesn't trigger the sound unit properly.

This could be caused by:

- too low input sensitivity setting on the sound unit for the hi hat input
- a displaced or loosely fixed sensor (trigger) on the hi hat
- a partially damaged sensor
- a bad wire connection at the sensor
- a bad wire connection at the sensor connector
- a dirty contact on the sensor connector
- a dirty contact on the cable connector at either side of the cable
- a bad cable, a broken wire or poorly soldered wire in the cable connector at either side of the cable
- a dirty contact on the input connector of the sound unit
- a bad solder connection on the input connector of the sound unit (inside the unit)
- a bad solder contact on a component or a faulty component associated to that particular input in the sound unit (capacitors, resistors, diodes, transistors, ICs, etc.)

To rule out a damaged cable, just change it and see if the hi hat works ok with another cable, if it does, the cable was damaged.

If the sensors are interchangeable , try to swap the sensor with a sensor from another cymbal, see if the other sensor works well, if it doesn't, then the sensors are not the problem.

To see if there is a problem with the input on the sound unit, connect another cymbal to that input, if it works well, the input is not the problem, if it still doesn't work, check sensitivity/trigger level setting, check connector contacts for any dirt, check connector and component solder contacts inside the unit.

Also, try to connect the hi hat to another input on the sound unit, if it doesn't work well after that, there's a problem with your hi hat (sensor, wires, dirty connector on the sensor), if it works well instead, then there's a problem with the hi hat input on the sound unit (sensitivity/trigger level, dirty connector contacts, bad solder contacts, damaged components)

Another thing: try your hi hat connected as is, but have someone move the cable connectors while you play it.
If moving the cable connector at the sensor side results in a change of operation (it might start working well for an instant or so), you definitely have a problem with that connection (check for bad wires in sensor connector, cable connector and for dirt on both connectors' pins).

If moving the cable connector at the sound unit input side results in a change of operation, then there's a problem with that connection (check for bad solder points on the input connector inside the sound unit, check for bad wires in cable connector, check for dirt on both connectors' pins).

I hope you can fix it, otherwise just post me some feedback if anything seems unclear, i'll be glad to assist you.

Ch. 10 does not work - Mackie 1604-VLZ PRO


Yes, the ribbon cable is the 1st thing I would check. You can check the ribbon like this: Disconnect said cable from the channels. Connect cable connector from a known good channel to the problem channel. If channel sounds the same trace a signal through the channel op-amps.

Nothing but loud buzzing coming over the amp when trying to play. Any suggestions?


If the buzz disappears when you unplug the cable from the amp. check your cable.
If the buzz disappears when you unplug the cable from the instrument, there's something thay may have come loose inside the instrument.
If you unplug the cable from the amp., and the buzz persists, you'll have to have a competent tech. check your amp.
