Question about Behringer Europower Pmp5000 Powered Mixer Pmp5000

1 Answer

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 everything just went off. i made an order for the t10 a 250 v fuse that was blown. Can that be the only problem with the amp? They had the amp cranked up pretty loud and it was a rock concert and it went out i just want to know before i put any money into it if it is worth trying to fix or if the fuse is the only problem

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.

    By the way, IF you put another fuse in it and the power supply wasn't damaged before, it will likely fry it doing more damage.

    What one does is to put a 150 Watt bulb in series with the power to the unit for testing and use a Variac to bring voltage up slowly during testing after repair...

My pmp froze, tried to reset it but now it wouldn't power up

Your PMP what? Is this a Behringer?... and if so what model?... If it won't power up, for goodness sakes do NOT replace a blown fuse as additional damage usually results. Get it serviced... if under warranty, then exercise the warranty. If it is a BEhringer, then also read my tip on Fixya tips regarding PMP mixers and a hazard of using 1/4 inch plug speaker cables or adapters.

My amp stopped working after 2 days from the day bought it. It stayed on standby for a while, about ten to fifteen minutes, but once I switched it on it started humming and making crack and pop noises.I...

Take it back for warranty replacement or repair since you only had it for 2 days. Since there is burnt smell this could be very serious problem. Probably a fuse blew due to any of several problems.

The pilot light runs off a rectified output of the power transformer but it is fused. There are three sopplies from the transformer and any of those could have a short and blow the main fuse or their individual fuses.

Take it in as I stated as this is NOT DIY repair. There are high voltages in this unit and if one is not adept at electronics you probably would not be able to repair it anyway.

My PMP 3000 is a dead stick. Help? We were playing a gig and everything was sounding amazing, all of a sudden the volume on channel 2 (a Wireless Digital Reference Head Mounted Mic, gotta love drummers)...

Please note that the outputs of the MAIN L/R line outs are TRS balanced. If you plug mono plugs into these or connect to mono device you MAY have a problem of grounding out half of the drive internally. ALSO please read my tip on here regarding a polarity hazard of speaker cables of PMP amps if you do NOT have Speakon to Speakon cables, but have Speakon to 1/4 inch cables.

Likely one of the power amps in this has failed If no lights come on the unit now, then the power supply is wiped out as well. It takes about $50 worth of parts and quite a bit of skill and work to restore the unit, including carving out burned board and re-insulating. Likely a feedback occured on that mic and started the whole thing. Supersonic feedback is something most musicians are NOT aware of, but if the feedback is above the range of hearing, the amps can be strained as they may go to maximum power trying to amplify the sound you can;;t even hear. Piezo tweeters are capable of frequencies up to 30KHz.

If this is under warranty exercise it immediately.

I'm not satisfied with the built in effects of my PMP 5000. Can I hook up an external effect and if so,how.

Depending on whether you want the external effects to be on everything or just a single mic input, you connect them to the power amp "insert" or the insert for the mic you want it on.

Looping it out on multiple mics would be tricky, but you could send the units effects into one of the monitor outputs only by selecting a "non-effects" setting in the unit and sending internal effects to one of the monitor outs, and then looping it back into another input to join the mix.

I have Behringer pmp 2000 mixer but it burned my fuse. How can I buy it?

If the fuse blew do NOT replace it till the unit is serviced or you will burn up more components. These units will blow out from a minimum of three to 30 components when they blow.

There is weak insulation between layers of the power amp circuit board and the arcing destroys a minimum of three transistors and often many more components on the power supply board as well.

I have repaired several of these and it is a lot of work. The power amp module can be had for about $175 but it often takes out the power supply as well.

Where can I buy a fuse and fuse holder for my Behringer pmp 3000 power mixer - can anyone tell me pleas Lyn

DO NOT REPLACE A FUSE if it blows. You will do additional damage to the unit internally.

When these blow, there is damage inside that must be repaired before restoring power.

To get an exact replacement fuse holder it is best to get it from Behringer parts. This one has a switch in it depending on which way the fuse carrier is inserted.

Yes, the fan is temperature controlled. You have to drive it a bit before it runs, and then it is kind of throttled versus temperature.
