Check the power going to the main output with a multimeter. It may be a simple fuse or the output board may have come disconnected from the main board.

Hi sorry it was mackie srm 1801 works fine on A out put can I use for time all is working well


Yes, you can use the A output, as long as you're OK with it being a mono system. It may be helpful to read the manual which has a lot of info including possible setup configurations. Here's a link-

Why do leds flash randomly on faulty mackie dfx-6 ?


Genuine and consistent random flashing is normally a cable fault if is the main VU graph but there are other symptoms as well. If is the O/l (Clip) or Solo Leds on a channel strip have you checked for earth loops etc? Does it do it all the time or only when there's a signal? Which Leds are flashing and is there anything else that is not behaving correctly? It would seem if you can get a repair shop to have a look this would be your best bet.

Effects not working on mackie cfx 20


I can't find a schematic but this seems to be kind of simple to repair. These effects units are usually a small sound card almost like those in a computer. They plug in on a loop inside and also have a small 12vdc power plug. Not sure on this particular model but I have found several problems like this to be a loose connection. If you have it open and turned on, try wiggling the plug around and see if you see or hear any changes. The should also be a plug for the send/return loop I would wiggle as well. This plug goes through the effects level control knob and if it gets loose or dirty could make the level jump with a little vibration. It doesn't take much vibration to make a dirty connection show up. It does seem to be something of this type happening if the effects do work, verifying the effects card is probably ok.

Transformer appears dead no lights no output


Transformers are VERY reliable. Look for another problem... rectifier, filter caps, fuses, regulators. There is a main fuse and if it is blown, repair the unit before applying full power. To test the unit, put a 40 watt light bulb in series with the hot side of the power cord. The light will act as a resetable fuse and will light when there is a short within the mixer, thus absorbing most of the voltage. Enough current will flow to diagnose the problem.

Hi I have Mackie DFX-12 Mixer along with 2 Power


Run your speakers cables to your stereo "outs" (L/R) then run your sub off of one of your aux "outs" or sub group "outs" (make sure you assign channels to sub group out).

All channels are clipping after water spilled on mixer.


If power was NOT turned off immediately after the spill, it is likely electrolysis has eaten through one or more circuit trace(s). If power had been turned off right away and the unit dried it would have been OK. The unit will have to be taken to a shop and repaired. This could be an expensive repair.
If the mixer is working properly audio wise and only the clip LED's are lighting, the cost may be mostly labor to repair the circuit board damage.

Computer->M-Audio-FastTrackPro USB->trs outputs 1/2->linein 11-12 of mackie 1202-vlz3. How can i get stereo sound out of the mackie?


Use TRS to TRS balanced cables from the M Audio to the line in 11 and 12.

Set the pan controls for the 11 and 12 to opposite directions to split the stereo to left and right main outputs. (otherwise both main outs mix the left and right and you get mono result.

I have a mackie cfx 12 mk11 mixer and have a faulty mains out channel(xlr & jack) right mains out is ok, has this mixer got micro electronics and can this problem be repaired by any technician


Yes, there are chips in the unit and any COMPETENT tech should be able to repair.

Since both the XLR and the jack are bad, this implies something more.

USUALLY Mackie drives the XLR and the unbalanced jack seperately so the problem would be what drives the unbalanced jack.

CHECK if you have output at the UTILITY left output jack. If you do, the driver chip for the left output main is the problem.

If you don't, the problem may back up farther into the EQ.

A LOT of troubleshooting can be done on these by using the block diagram in your manual showing signal paths.

Hi, Model: Mackie 1604 VLZ PRO When using the control room monitoring, even if the corresponding "SOURCE" switch of the subgroup/main mix is disengaged, there is still small volume of sound. This is...


You may be getting a small amount of cross-talk. How high are the gain settings and sliders when this occurs? Also, can you describe the overall setup that you are using? I'll check the prints, but you should not be getting any volume unless the gains are maxed.
