Question about Behringer EUROPOWER EP2500 Amplifier

2 Answers

Behringer PMH 880S Hi; Can anyone help. I am desperatley looking for the schematic circuit diagram for the switching power supply Behringer Model SPS1000/02 which is fitted to the PMH 880S, and also the replacement part number for T1, T2 which appear to be the driver transistors for the 1MBK50D's switcing mos fets.The transistos have a stock part number of C2655 and A1020 which I asume showing one is a PNP and the other an NPN.any help would be greatly appriciated.

Oh yes... I have repaired several of these supplies.
For the IGBT's use APT28GA60BD15 which are pricey at $9.28 from (still lower than alternative sources. Getting the heatsinks off, one of which has a thermal sensor as well is a real pain! Transformers don't fail...
The C2655's are really 2SC2655-Y and those I get from Allied. The mating 2SA1020-Y I believe is available either at or
You will LIKELY find the IR2153 chip is blown and that I had to get from Allied. Usually one of the PL4148 surface mount gate drive speed up diodes is blown either short or open (D24 and D25).
Often transistor T9 is gonzo (BC856MTTCT).
Often the 10 or 22 ohm wirewound charging resistors are blown open. I use TWW10J20RE as replacemens for those. Be sure and use silicone to help support them.
Now when you are done with that, you need to find WHY the supply failed. It is either because a ceramic cap across the 85 volts failed OR one of the power amps arced out. If the unit has the HCA2400 amp in it I will tell you what happens: In the vicinity of the SPF9640 MOSFET and a big surface mounted cap will be an arc between layers of the multi-layer circuit board. This shorts and fries the IRFP250 MOSFET and BOTH SFP9640 MOSFETS. The repair of this is major involving carving out the "cancer" and reinsulating with epoxy and replacing blown carved out traces with hookup wire. The proceedure I can't document here, but failure to correct this will result in power supply failing again.
FOR YOUR SAFETY ONLY work on the supply using an isolation transformer. Use a 150 Watt lamp in series for testing to act as a fuse so you don't pop the supply again. DISCHARGE the 85 volt outputs BEFORE plugging the amps back on the power supply.

Behringer sx3242fx not working .i need circuit diagram .

Behringer will not release schematics unless you are an authorized service agent... however, sometimes you can make do with the few schematics floating around... What is the problem with the unit? They typically use a switching power supply and the schematics of those aree usually similar enough to repair them.

Behringer DDm4000 purchased in 2009. Over 2 years happy usage, but now it's got some major issues! The power supply seems corrupted as after about 2 hours use it maxes out the signal (ouch) and all...

Behringer is stingy about schematics... however here is one for their DJX700 which MAY have a similar power supply to yours:

Scroll down to "get manual" and click to download... IGNORE other download links.
On page 9 near the lower right corner is the simple power supply, minus the transformer but showing the rectifier diodes, filter caps, and the three terminal regulators. These regulators have a thermal shutdown feature so if they seem to run VERY hot they might cause your problem. Common things are failing electrolytic filter caps. Behringer also uses switching power supplies in some gear and I have schematics of examples of those as well... but peak in your unit and see what type supply you have.

Hello! I have a Behringer EUROPOWER PMH 1000. But the power board burnt source. What do I will acquire another, or fixable?

Often teh power supply fails because of other problems. Unless the board has flame damage the parts that are defective can be replaced... Getting some of the parts that are special can take time. Most of the components are available at many sources however. The SPS400 power supply can be repaired.

Here is link to schematic that should have the SPS400 as well as the rest of the PMH1000 on it.

Behringer pmh mixer manual. 20 channel 800watt powered mixer no speaker output. I need to test the power supply and the amp modual. Thanks

Are there lights or effects windows lit up? If so, the power supply is likely OK.

If neither speaker is working, that is bad however make sure all your trims and sliders are right to send audio through. Some have a standby switch.

This probably has an HCA2400 amp board in it and those can burn up for various reasons including loose speaker cables.
