The cpu of my Mackie D8b no longer recognizes the keyboard or mouse and won't boot up.This problem just started after many years of trouble free use.

had the same problem once after a new install it still did not work

turned out to be the keyboard itself had a cable that wat broken solderd it and it worked again you can test this with a multimeter to see if the cables are still connected to the connector goodluck

My gasline froze last week. The gas unfroze but now my cruise control and ETS systems do not work. Checked the fuses and the appear to be fine. Any suggestions

I don`t think your gas line froze last week. I haven`t seen a frozen gas line in my 20 years in T.O.
Have your car checked for your cruise control and ets.

My d8b runs and after 5 mn freewes.No more input or output.All the leds on the board go off and no button is active.

I suspect the power supply is shutting down... may be overloaded due to failure in the board or a failure in the supply itself. The time delay before failure is indicative of something heating up causing the delay in failing.
DO verify the power source is good. ALSO verify that ALL interconnected equipment such as the board, amps, powered speakers ALL are powered from the same receptacle or power source.

I cant get any sound to come through my Mackie d8b mixer any ideas?

I have one of these, you may have a problem with a capacitor, they tend to go every 5 years or so. its a back to base job, but you probably dont need to send your cpu, just the mixer unit.

Mackie D8B Mixer freezes

Don't know your setup but have you checked out any possible Hum loops? Have you updated any firmware updates? Is your mains input clean (no spikes or very short drop outs of voltage)? Are you near any possible RFI, e.g. Taxi's or CBr's? The list goes on so check out the Mackie forum on the web for more. Good Luck...

Power PC G5 Dual 2.5 sudden shutdown and no reboot

In G5 always the cover should be closed properly if not it will start the fan very fast like a blower and the red leds will be on showing that the heat is over so please check that the cover is closed and locked from behind so itworks smooth and the power supply is standard or normal
u should always use genune parts with mac..
