Did you plug the Main Out cables into an amplifier?

The fader is likely a dual pot. The manufacturer is likely ALPS. You need to match the board hole layout, slider throw, resistance, AND TAPER.

There will be a number on the side of the pot that will have the resistance and taper... It is likely an "A" taper which is an audio log taper.

Replacing this involves removing about the right 1/3 of knobs, screws, and jack mounting nuts and washers to remover the circuit board the pot is mounted on.

There are connecting cables to be removed.

Try to find part at or Note that the handle MAY be too long. Shorten the handle with tin snios and remove the burr.

BEFORE any of this is done, you should investigate to make sure it is the fader. If the left channel is intermitent scratchy then the fader is likely bad, These will get scratchy before they fail... If that is not the scenario, then there probably is something else bad.

Since the board is similar to the eurodesk model, on that one DO NOT plug mono 1/4 inch plugs into the mains output 1/4inch jacks as those are TRUE TRS balanced lines.

There are no chronic failure parts.

Faders that get contamination in them can be a problem.

The external driver chips CAN be damaged when people connect the unit to amplifiers that are run from a power source at opposite ends of an auditorium for example, due to common mode ground loops and faults.

Setting up a system is one part knowing what equipment is needed and one part electrical engineering regarding safe interconnection of low level audio signals.

Behringer recommends using a shielded CAT 5e cable with Ethercon connectors wired to the T568B standard to connect the two. Also you need to make sure that the board is completely powered on before turning on the S32 for proper connection. Make sure you are connecting between the Aes50A ports. When connected you should be able to see a green light next to Aes50A in the main screen. Then you will need to properly route the channels.

in what way? no power? dead?

See if another audio source connected to the mixer produces the same results. Try with the same cable and then with another cable. The purpose of this procedure is to determine if it is the cable and/or the laptop. (Sound card problem???) or mixer.
Is it ALL audio or just specific audio from for instance, a music application? Does it cut out using iTunes?
The mixer may have a bad or oxidized input. Try a different input channel? Are you using headphones to listen? It may be the headphone amp? OR, if audio is produced via amped speakers, it may be the mixer output. Does the mixer have metering? Do the meters also cut out? Does the laptop do the same thing if plugging in headphones to the laptop directly (no mixer)?

You have given in detail which is helpful

I looked up what that unit is so I'm not uber familiar and this is before coffee, however, check your effects levels, possibly delays or echos are building up on an individual channel and adding to your total output making it clip. Even if you don't have the effects on output, they can work in the background and clip internally. Is the output sound affected? Magnetic interference is another possibility if you are running it close to pickups, recorders and other high power supplies. Trim levels set too high? I don't know your actual stage setup but these are a couple things I have experienced through the years. Ahh, here's coffee and a drink to you finding your problem.

Hello Geoff, try using an external processor and check that it works well, if so, the problem is that you have the Jack connectors of Effect sending and those of Return of Effects, dirty
Apply a couple of drops of oil, type WD40, to a Plug connector and insert and remove them repeatedly in each connector Jack for sending and returning effects
I hope you can solve the problem, comment the results
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Geoff, prueba usando un procesador externo y comprueba que funcione bien, si es asi, el problema es que tienes los conectores Jack de envio de Efecto y los de Retorno de Efectos, sucios
Aplicale en un conector Plug un par de gotas de aceite, tipo WD40 y entralos y sacalos repetidamente en cada conector Jack de envio y retorno de efectos
Espero puedas solucionar el problema, comenta los resultados
Saludos Franco Dosil

Connect the two Behringer B215XL to the Right/Main Speaker Outputs. Monitor(s) would connect to the Left/Mon Speaker Outputs

Hi Ezra, for the failure you describe, you may have a problem with the Main Insert connectors, more presumably on the left, this connector has the function of interleaving some type of processor in the stages of the master L and R, and has some contacts internal that get dirty and produce false contact in the passage of the output signal
Try cleaning it with some contact cleaner, put a small amount of cleaner and with the help of a plug, put it on and take it out several times in order to make the cleaner work, do the same with the right channel, because the same fault will appear. , sometime
If this does not work, you would apparently have problems with the left master dimmer potentiometer on the corresponding electrical circuit
I sent you the link to download the user manual of your Behringer
I hope you serve my suggestions and manage to make the left exit work
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Ezra, por la falla que describes, puedes tener un problema en los conectores Main Insert , mas presisamente en el Izquierdo, este conector tiene la funcion de intercalar algun tipo de procesador en la etapas de los master L y R, y cuenta conunos contactos internos que se ensucian y producen falso contacto en el paso de la se?al de salida
Prueba limpiarlo con algun limpiador de contacto, pon poca cantidad de limpiador y con la ayuda de un plug ve colocandolo y sacandolo repetidas veces a los efectosn de que el limpiador actue, haz lo mismo con el canal derecho, porque ya le aparecera la misma falla, en algun momento
Si esto no da resultado, aparentemente tendrias problemas con el potenciometro atenuador master Izquierdo on el circuito electrico correspondiente
Te envio el link para que descargues el manual de usuario de tu Behringer
Espero te sirvan mis sugerencias y logres hacer funcionar la salida Izquierda
Saludos Franco Dosil

Yes you can, but the questions is should I. the answer is no, unless you have the money to new equipment. Why would want to connect another amp? If some tells you can do it ask for a deposit equal to the price of new equipment.
