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.
Line 6 connected to AC power and LED showing power to unit. Guitar into effect input, effect output to guitar amp. Does guitar make sound through amp in bypass mode? No then check cables...yes then use foot switch to turn Line 6 effects unit on. Adjust control knobs for desired effect levels/settings.
If pedal provides no effects...off/on switch defective or internal electronics in need of repair.
Is the number on the effects display still flashing? Can you select effects or is that section dead now? I've had occasions with my Behringer mixers where a bad ground or otherwise improper power supply seems to cause issues with the effects section but the board seems otherwise functional. It has definitely had me scratching my head a few times and is worth investigating.
View videos on YouTube regarding "mixer setup". Find the parts of setting up of "effects". Don't worry that you have a different mixer, the principles are all the same for analog mixers. Steps are this: Set the EFX send level for EACH of the input channels (knob above each channel gain) for the proportion you want for each channel. Check that the level you are sending does NOT cause the effect clip light to light very much. Set the effect you want, delay, echo, etc. with the selector knob. Advance the output sent to the power amp with the two knobs in the upper right of the panel. Adjust the "time" knob for the delay or effect depth you want. Then go over the same settings in the same order until you get the sound you want.
One needs to control the FX SENT to the effects unit with the FX1 and FX2 controls for each mic channel. You should see the levels on the tiny histogram alongside the effects selection dials/indicators. Next select the effect number you want so it is displayed in the window. Then PUSH in on the selector for each of the two effects to activate the selected effect. Now, lastly advance the FX to MAIN knobs to control the amount sent to the main mix. Some of the effects are subtle so try different ones.
Set each of the FX mix knobs to 12 o'clock (halfway up to start)... I believe they are orange tops for each channel effects are desired for.
Next select the number of effect by rotating the selection knob. The display will flash.
Push DOWN on the selection knob to activate the selected effect number... the display will cease to flash. Note that you can mute the effects with a small button in the effect area and decimal point will come on showing effect, even though selected, is disabled. That small button can toggle the effects on and off.
Next, adjust the "FX to main knob" above the MAIN fader... set it to 12 o'clock to start with.
Note that there are two others that send the resultant same effect to stage monitors if used...
Now ADVANCE the FX (orange) fader to increase the input to the FX. You should start to hear the effects... SOME of the effects are subtle, so maybe choose a long delay one to get the hang of it... choose #3 for example...
The manual is NOT too clear how to use the effects and is confusing... they assume you have knowledge common to mixers... and new users don't.
I would recommend watching several YouTube videos about mixer setup... there are some good ones there !!! Most mixers have a lot in common and once you learn what is there, you can work most any of them... some of the new digital ones are a bit more confusing.
Hi ! I have the same problem. THERE IS DEFINITELY something wrong there. It's not that you've not selected the effects, but the units keep on resetting. Even if you can select a different preset, it will go back to 1 & 25. I've been told that the problem has something to do with the power source, but I'm still trying to get a solution. Best luck !
This is in general for Behringer mixers since you did NOT tell us a model number...
To use the effects you adjust the FX knob for EACH channel for the amount of the mic or input you want to send to effects from that channel. This is the "send" mix.
You dial in one of the effects based on the list near the effects selection window with the selector knob and the number will change and start flashing. You press down on the selection knob which will enter the new effects number and the number will be solid and not flashing.
Then there is a knob to select how much of the OUTPUT of the effects you want to go to the main and sometimes one for the amount to the monitors.
That is all there is to it. The effects can be gated by a foot switch input if you desire.
It is a good idea to include a model number as your thing is posted as if it is a PMP3000 mixer.
You have to select an effect, push down the selector knob to lock it in. You have to send signal to the effect by turning up the effect in the "strip" above the slider. You have to turn up the effect sent to the main below the effect window, and finally use the effect slider to control the amount of effect. There may also be a button to toggle the effect on and off near the effect number window.
The effects on the PMP powered mixers flash UNTIL you push in on the selector knob. This way you can dial in the next effect number and then push in later to activate when you want it... Could yours possibly be the same technique?
