Sounds like the thermal cutout is sensing over temp. Make sure there is FREE airflow around the unit. If it is in a cabinet, install vent fan(s). This amp will throw out a lot of heat. Make sure cooling fins have airflow. Cables can block the airflow... check for that possibility. Repeated thermal cycles will eventually cause failure of components.

My peavey amp pv 2600 only plays on channel A. No output on the B side


Hello,

Check the "BRIDGE" switch position, "IN" for "BRIDGE", "OUT" for "STEREO", and clean ALL back switches with a cleaning spray and then run the amp again, also check the two green lights activation at front, if they activate, then amp is certainly working, let me know further.

Useing a Peavey XR 800F Powered PA Mixer/Amp which develops distortion on output after around 60 minutes. Also had gear linked to all inputs at the time, three mics, 2 guitars and keyboard. Any ideas...


First of all confirm if the speaker impedance is not lower then the recommended Ohms at the back of the Mixer speaker socket.You can use an 8 Ohms speaker on a 4 Ohms amplifier but not vise versa .
Next see if the fan on the mixer works. If not the Amp is getting very hot and this will lead to unwanted distortion. You can confirm if its a heat related issue by playing the mixer at low volumes for more than an hour and see if it distorts.

I have 2 peavey 2600 amps with 1 pv6 mixer wanting to run subs off 1 amp and sp2s off other amp but only have 1 main output on the pv6 mixer whats my solution


Hi there,
you can run one amp from the main out puts and the second amp from the CTRL Room out puts. The CTRL ROOM are outputs that are linked to the same bus as the master fader. This will work fine...
Best of luck

How can i prevent it from over heating


Do NOT block airflow via the vents and fans. If other equipment blocks or restricts airflow, space out the items in the rack.

Some amps have vent fins at the sides and these must have free airflow.

Do not go below the load resistance rating by paralleling too many speakers.

Do NOT drive the amp into the clipping region with too high volume.

Peavey amp shut down


The output stage has a problem. From your description, I'd guess that the high voltage supply has failed. The low volume and distortion suggests that you are trying to power the speakers from the driver section rather than the outputs. There is a resistor that fails in some of this series. If I remember correctly it is either a 2K or 3K resistor 10 watts in size. If you have no experience with repairs, I'd seek a service shop that is familiar with these units. The part runs between $5-$10.

Power supply problem


Use the series light bulb trick when trying to first power this up. Use a 150 watt bulb in series with the 120 volt power to avoid damage and blown fuses.
