You may have destroyed the faders. If excessive force is applied to put the knob on, then the resistance element may be cracked. ALWAYS only put the button on at one end of the throw of the fader. The channelfaders appear to be 10K, probably audio taper. Most are made by ALPS. You can probably get replacement from either DigiKey.com or Mouser.com. Often the tab for the knob is too long and has to be cut off and de-burred. Removing the faders from the board REALLY requires a soldering station/de-soldering station as it is easy to damage the circuit board. Do NOT use solderwick as you would need too much heat to remove solder from the back side... you need a solder ****** type. Mesure the throw of the slider as a first step to find replacement. Next, match the hole pattern, and then next the resistance value and finally the taper, in this case, audio.
Pay attention to the type of tab for the knob...
It is a lot of work removing all the knobs, all the nuts on the 1/4 inch jacks, and screws, including those for the XLR jacks.

How to Set up Auxiliaries on a Mixer.


Here are some tips to set up the auxiliaries properly on your mixer:
  • Step1:
Your auxiliaries allow you to send the signal from a channel strip to somewhere else while maintaining the signal on the channel strip. For instance, you can use auxiliaries for monitor mixes for performers in a live environment. You can also use auxiliaries for external effects processors or a number of different situations.
  • Step2:
Set the auxiliaries to pre-fader to allow you to change the level for the auxiliary with the auxiliary knob but not with the channel fader. Most mixers have a "Pre" button that allows you to enable pre-fader mode. If you don't have the button pressed, your auxiliaries are in post-fader mode, which means your channel fader will affect the signal level of the auxiliary output. For monitor mixes, you usually want to use pre-fader so you can control monitor mixes independently from the front of house mix. Some effects processors will be better to run post-fader, though, so don't always rely on pre-fader.
  • Step3:
Send out your auxiliary sends. On the back of your board, you there are the auxiliary outputs. For a monitor mix, you will use these outputs to connect to the inputs of the monitors. When using an effects processor, you will use the auxiliary output to connect to the input of the effects processor.
  • Step4:
Plug in a return if necessary. If you are just doing monitors, you do not need returns to the mixer. When using effects processors though, you need a way to get your effected signal back to your mixer. Take the output of the effects processor and connect that to the return input on the back of the mixer. Now you will have to adjust the return section on your channel strip to get the desired signal.
  • Step5:
Use the auxiliary knob to set the desired level. Once you know if you are running pre- or post-fader, and you have your inputs and outputs all correct, you can start sending signal to your auxiliary output. Turn up the auxiliary knob until either your monitors are set correctly or until you have the desired amount of signal going to your effects processor or other outboard equipment.

How to send effects to microphones


You CAN'T send ANYTHING to microphones since they are INPUT devices.

If you want apply effects to the audio coming FROM them then this is what you do:

Adjust the trim and faders for normal use and verify the mics are working.

NOW for those mics you want to put effects on, turn the knob labled "FX" above EACH mic FADER that you want effects on... it will be the orange topped ones... about the fourth one up ablve the PAN and the two MON knobs. Adjust these to send each mic into the effects mixing buss. Start by setting them at 12 o'clock. You will use these to proportion the amount of effects applied to individual mics.

Next, advance the FX fader/slider to around the Unity mark... this controls the amount of the FX mix buss goes into the FX processor.

Next adjust the knob above the MAIN fader that says FX to Main. This controls the amount of the FX that is sent into the MAIN mix buss...

We are almost there... Select the effect you want with the effect knob to the number of the effect you want... it will be blinking AFTER a change... the effect will NOT have changed yet... WHEN you want the effect to take effect, PRESS DOWN on the effect knob and the effect number will stop blinking and you now have the effects on those mics... ADJUST the three level things... the knbs under each channel to proportion between the mics... adjust the FX fader for the USUAL control of effect amount... and finally the FX to main knb to set the limit of the effect going to the MAINS.

My mackie 1604 vlz 16channel has a problem, it changes sounds during the use and faders need to be cleaned. why is it changing sounds on me...?


If the faders have become noisy, they may be changing due to poor contact. Try putting a small amount of CRC226 in the center of the slot of each fader and then move fader knob to top and bottom. CRC226 is available in the electrical department of Home Depot in a small can with spout... about $2.70

How hard would it be to change a fader control on a peavey escort 2000


Changing faders USUALLY involves removing all panel hardware so that circuit board can be removed to get at the fader. It is often a LOT of work with a boit of hazards along the way.
If the control is noisy I want you to try something before replacing the fader. Get a can of CRC226 available at Home Depot in the Electrical department... about $2.70 for a can. Using the included plastic spout tube, squirt a bit into the center of the control where the knob is. Work it back and forth and then put a little more in and test if it is better or fixed.
NEVER use DeOxit or Blue Shower in faders!!!!! It removes the lube that is required in the fader.

MAIN MIX O/P FADER


The fader is likely a dual pot. The manufacturer is likely ALPS. You need to match the board hole layout, slider throw, resistance, AND TAPER.

There will be a number on the side of the pot that will have the resistance and taper... It is likely an "A" taper which is an audio log taper.

Replacing this involves removing about the right 1/3 of knobs, screws, and jack mounting nuts and washers to remover the circuit board the pot is mounted on.

There are connecting cables to be removed.

Try to find part at DigiKey.com or Mouser.com. Note that the handle MAY be too long. Shorten the handle with tin snios and remove the burr.

BEFORE any of this is done, you should investigate to make sure it is the fader. If the left channel is intermitent scratchy then the fader is likely bad, These will get scratchy before they fail... If that is not the scenario, then there probably is something else bad.

Since the board is similar to the eurodesk model, on that one DO NOT plug mono 1/4 inch plugs into the mains output 1/4inch jacks as those are TRUE TRS balanced lines.

I think my crossfader stop working for some reason. when im on side B i get sound then i slide over to side A and i still get sound from side be,,, all the assign are right also the bass mid and hi kill...


I suspect one end of the crossfader pot has broken from the element. The fader probably costs less than $5.

You likely will have to remove all the knobs and some screws to seperate the board with the fader from the front panel so you can replace the fader.

VERIFY the pot is bad with an ohmmeter before dis-assembling however.

You MAY be in luck. It looks like the cross fader has a connector which MIGHT allow you to remove it or certainly only a small board for replacement, seeing these take abuse.

It appears that the cross fader is a dual 100K type B taper.

Can the faders on the behringer sl2442 be cleaned without dismantling and if so, how? I have one fader where the signal goes intermmitent when the slider is moved.


I will give you something to try and beyond that, you have to replace the fader.

Try spraying a LITTLE CRC 226 into the fader slot. Procure this at a Home Depot store in a small blue spray can in the electrical department. (about $2.60) DO NOT USE CONTACT CLEANER such as De-Oxit.

Spray a bit in and see if it improves the situation.

IF NOT what has happened is the sliding fingers have worn through and folded back and dug into the resistance element in the fader. That is fatal!

The faders, once you find the right type are not very expensive say less than $5 BUT there are usually massive number of screws to take out and knobs to remove to get the board out. SOMETIMES the ones you get have to have the "handle" shortened by a quarter inch. Do this with tin snips and clean off burrs with a file.

You need to match the resistance, the hole pattern, AND the "taper" which for those will be an "audio taper" The fader will have a part number on the side and MOST are made by "ALPS". Digikey and Mouser are my usual sources online.

Un-soldering the old fader takes care and solder removal tools. DO NOT force the leads out till the solder is all out and the lead is free. You will lift the circuit traces off the board.

Clean the residue of soldering flux when done and re-assemble.

I have a behringer xenyx 2442 and the main output fader no longer works. Each individual channel fader now seems to go direct to the main mix and appears to bypass the main fader


The utput fader has probably been broken. If the knob takes a hit, it breaks the resistance element. The part is inexpensive but it takes a lot of work to access and replace the part.
