I assume that the power-amp is good.
This noise, of course due to defective parts inside.
But, which section is it? Chances are:
  • Amplifier circuit in the Main-Outputs. If the MAIN MIX in the minimum position and still noisy, then the damage in that section.
  • At one or several channels. Let's test.
    Set to minimum volume for all channels and MAIN MIX. EQ=flat. FX=minimum. TRIM at half (let's try at 12 o'clock).
    Raise the MAIN MIX, let's say at 15.
    Gently, raise channel 1 volume to maximum, listen, if there is no noise, channel 1 is safe. Lower the volume to the minimum again. Move to another channel in the same way.
    If found noise, that is where the problem is.
Actually, many more detailed steps for testing, but the description is too long. This above is a simple way.
Circuit power supply should also be checked, whether all normal voltage.

They should come on/flash when the associated button is set.

Which clip light on what and what mics are you using?
The small room settings are from 10 so just turn the know to the setting you require and press it, this should set it.

The stadard way of setting up mics is to set the channel gain so the channel clip light just blinks occasionally when you are making the maximum sound you can into the mic.

For effects repeat this process using the aux send FX for each channel you want fx on (turn the rest to 0) and doing a balancing act between these and the aux send fx master so you can only just get the FX clip light blinking occasionally.

Next set your gain/attenuators on the amp(s) so its clip warning can just trigger when you are giving it 0db when you are playing the loudest you ever will.

A mic fading away could be the battery dying (in which case try using phantom power) or if they're radio replace the batteries before each service. If they're wired dynamic mics then it is possible there's some protection circuit somewhere that's reacting to the constant clipping and backing off the amp.

The clip light means your input signal is too high and distorting. Turn down the attenuator(input) knob until it goes out, use the channel volume for level. It should have a knob for the names of the effect selection.

Could be a failing power supply as you suspect. You don't indicate the age of the equipment, but that could be a factor.
