Check for a defect on the solo switch. The rude lights when ANY solo is on. Sometimes the switches stick mechanically and don't fully come up.

I have a Mackie 406M Powered Mixer. can't get sound out of it anymore. all the input level set lights stays on. any suggestions


That sounds like the amp board died. Mackie parts can be hard to source, and Mackie is really slow to ship, so I suggest taking it to a Mackie authorized service center. Here's a link-

Mackie srm 350v2 speaker packed up


I believe there is an internal fuse in these which, according to a friend who has these, seems to blow occasionally for no apparent reason. He has also had to send two back for replacement and would not buy again, they seem to be inherently unreliable although they sound great.

If I solo something, that level bleeds onto the Main. If everything is down, there is still some bleed over. Sub outs work fine, but then I lose the effects.


The channel solo does NOT kill the subs for the channel, so if you have the subs going to effects and back to the mains that path will still get to the mains appearing as bleed Here is the service manual for the CFX20 which is just more channels of yours.

I have a Mackie d8b, not getting any signal no matter what we try.


This is vague,,, there are so many outputs, knobs, LED's that I suspect you have not tried the right combination. I have no idea what your signal sources are... mics... tape... etc.

To start, turn the trim control of one channel that you have a signal source connected. Set all the EQ controls and the pan CONTROLS TO 12 O'CLOCK.

Check that you can trigger the clip light with high level of input. Press the solo button for that channel and using a set of headphones listen for any signal... turn the headphone level up and the slider for that channel...

First do your basic checks,,, try EACH mute button and see the LED light... try each solo button and see that each will light AND also that ANY solo light will cause the RUDE solo light to come on...

Took apart and cleaned all my ribbon cable connectors (all off at once). Also took off and cleaned and reseated all molex connectors. Now back together but....solo light on all channels is lit with nothing...


A few questions first:

1) Does this effect the functioning of the "solo" at all? (ie is the light on always but without effect and can you select solo using the pushbutton?) We need to determine whether or not the problem is a funcitonal one or just the indicators being lit when they shouldn't be.

2) Are there any other symptoms at all? Any other lights effected at all or any functions not working as expected?

I will look up the prints for this, but I need to narrow down the search a bit. Gaining access to the board is not quick as all of the knobs need to be removed and all of the control nuts removed as well. If we can narrow this down a bit, you may be able to avoid that.

Please post up the info requested and I'll pull up the prints.

Thanks,
Dan

Behringer XENYX 2442FX Mixer. The power light does not come on, The +48V does come on. The solo light blinks Constancy. No sound. I checked the fuses, they seem to be OK. any ideas on what wrong


You have likely lost one, probably the +15 volt power supply... This is possibly a shorted component or a short on the circuit board causing this. It takes some skills at troubleshooting to find this. Sometimes using a thermal imaging camera will show hot spot... other times you have to search with a millivoltmeter. The rude solo light is driven by an op amp that uses both polarities of 15 volts and to turn it on it pulls negative... Hence I suspect the +15 is missing.

The "rude muting" light is blinking


That means that one or more of the "SOLO" buttons are down. This is the funtion that sends ONLY the SOLO selected mix to the headphone jack.

Hello, The leds on my Mackie 1202 VLZ3 light up and sometimes stay lit even when there is no input going into the channels and the channels volume is completely down. Any thoughts? Thanks, Wayne.....


There are LED's all over these and you don't say which are lit... If they are mute or solo LED check the switches for a solo button or mute that is set.

IF they are the output level LED's plug in a set of phones and crank the phone volume up to losten if there is feedback or oscillation that is causing this.

HUM PICKUP due to a ground loop could be causing this. Make sure that ANYTHING connected to the unit that is also powered receives pwer from the SAME receptacle. If you have devices that receive power from a different receptacle you MAY have a ground loop. Noise on power lines can DAMAGE the equipment due to excedding the common mode input and output capability of the unit.

Finally, a strong local radio transmitter MAY be interfering. Sometimes the interference can go backward into the output lines to trigger the indicators.

As a test, when event occurs again, start unplugging anything connected to the mixer and see if disconnecting anything stops the problem. If you can have the problem with ONLY the power connected, then check if you have inadvertently created a loop within the unit by your settings.

Please refer to the "signal flow" diagrams in your user manual to see the possible feedback paths you can cause a loop to form.

REMEMBER the oscillation MAY be occuring well above the frequency you can hear !!!!

If you have access to an oscilloscope that would see if there is an oscillation going on.

Can't get sound out of the main outs just the solo out I using a mackie 1604 mixer bought back in late 1990's about 1995


Here is the manual if you don't have one:http://www.mackie.com/pdf/archive/cr1604_om.pdf. There are solo buttons for each channel. There is also an auxiliary return solo button. There is also a solo to main button. These buttons are all inter related. Is your main output mute button in or out? Read the manual carefully as there are a myriad of combinations you can use. Have a look at the trouble shooting guide on page 21. If you can't find a solution try contacting Mackie. Let me know if this helps.
