Behringer Europower Pmp5000 Powered Mixer Pmp5000 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


I'd need to know what mixer you have, to know if there is a [line out] connection socket and an [internal amp in] connection socket.

"each with own poweramp" I presume means the ep1500's and NOT that the speakers are active (ie containing amps)

***If any of your speakers are active, ask the question again, with more detail.***

So if all your speakers are passive, I offer the following.

I assume there is [effect send] and [effect return] on the mixer

effect send>quadraverb>effect return

mixer line out > eq > compressor > sonic maximizer > crossover

sub output of crossover> amp > sub
high output of crossover to mixer's internal amp input
mixer's speaker output > main speakers

monitor output > other side of eq (>other side of compressor if desired, but use sparingly ) > other side of sonic max if it is true stereo , otherwise skip > amp > monitors

If your mixer doesn't have an input to its internal amp, we are "back to the drawing board"
With questions like this it pays to give as much detail as possible; model and make of each component etc
I have done my best with the the info you have provided.
Don't feed amp outputs into powered speakers

Chances are you've blown the output transistors. Speakon connectors cannot short out but jack connectors can and if it was not inserted properly you'll have presented a dead short to your powered mixer. In any event it is really bad idea to connect anything when it's switched on. If you're really lucky replacing the output stage (which will probably be dead short on the transistors) and re-adjusting the bias should sort you out.

When using Speakon adapter cables with 1/4 inch plugs, the sleeve of channel A is the hot and not the tip of the plug. Inadvertent shorting of this to ground can blow that channel of the amp.

Yes, it can be repaired. Likely at least the output transistors are fried, possibly the drivers are too. Possible other components like resistors gone, too. Needs somebody that knows amps.

Oops! Smoke from on of those is not unusual, as behringer is notorious for bad solder joints and BAD Power supplies. Anyhow the amplifiers are "most likely" OK. but your powersupply is shot. My PMH 3000 did the exact same thing. And here is the bad news. Behringer is also notorious for the lack of assistance in case of problems and will advice you to have the unit repaired at an approved service point. If however you are ok with electronics you can have a go yourself, manuals are few and (very) far between. I have some diagrams and stuff, so if you need some sing out. I have 2, MX 3282A mixers, nothing but trouble! Sorry I can't help you any further, Good luck.

If you overload them the output MOSFETs fry and tend to take the circuit board and a few resistors out. They are fixable but it's a pain hat the board fries. The tracks need building up with wire so they can carry the necessary current (or any once they fry). Apart from that they are a decent Amp for little bucks and sound pretty good. They'll need micing for anything but smaller venues but the functions are really useful in getting a good sound for the buck.

You don't say what item of Focusrite equipment you are trying to connect or for what purpose. Most focusrite stuff has jacks with analog outputs for each channel that can be used into the line ins on the mixer and jack/xlr combos that can be used to take a signal to the focusrite box. Then you get the firewire side for the PC and digital outputs as well which will not be of use with your mixer.

Assuming you have not got the fx1/2 to mon turned right down it would seem likely that this has failed which would be about the only thing that would stop fx to mon if all else is working. You do not describe the distortion to the mains but if it is related to the fx then this would point to the same thing, a failed pot probably. These are a total nightmare to replace although the part is dirt cheap. Allow your self several hours if you think it is worthwhile. Behringer (and some other) mixers are now made in such a way as to be almost unrepairable using a single smt board that requires total disassembly of the unit to replace even wearing parts (excluded by the warranty). I would suggest replacing the mixer with a new one or a decent second hand one.

Yes, the SMPS handles 100 to 240 at 50 / 60hz there is not a physical switch it is automatic for world wide use.

Use a two channel INSERT SNAKE. Plug the TRS connector for each channel into the INSERT jack for the mains in the area above the effects unit. Plug the TIP of each channel of the snake into the input of your effects unit and the RING plug into the output of your effects. The snake has ONE TRS connector and TWO TS connectors per channel.

In spite of the display, does the effects work and do they change when you dial up and press the knob down? If they do, then likely the display is at fault. If the effects are NOT working sound wise, check the +5 volts as the whole effects runs from that, It should be within 10% of the 5 volts.

The PMP has an electronic overload protection. If you overload one or the other of the outputs, it trips the protector and you have to cycle the power off for a bit to reset it. You haven't mentioned what speakers you have. Be aware that the impedance can be no lower than 4 ohms on either channel. In addition, I have seen some particular speakers that have transformer attentuators in them that this amp is NOT happy driving. You could not attach more than two 8 ohm speakers to each of the outputs without tripping the protector.

Usual problem is the Channel A amplifier has burned and blown the switching transistors. Usually an internal board arc occurs and unless very skilled at board work of clearing the burned area and replacing the components you are better to replace the HCA2400 amplifier module... about $160

Yes, you can use both the main1 and main2. They are independently driven and please note that they are PSUEDO balanced drives... that is the cold side of the balanced line is NOT driven as a complement, but is merely returned to signal ground by a 120 ohm resistor. This CAN cause hum problems or noise pickup depending on the connected equipment and ground loops. Best to run this into amps/speakers thaat have TRUE balanced inputs and also keep the power source the same for all devices.

Unpowered (passive) speakers connect to the Speakon connectors on the back of the unit. Powered speakers or amplified ones connect to the mains output L/R connectors (1/4 inch) near the upper edge of the panel.

Yes, you blew out components associated with the monitor sends. There are several components including an RF bypass to ground and the driver IC, IC8 and a decoupling electrolytic cap. The repair is going to be extensive as it is likely you will have to remove ALL the panel knobs and screws to free up the circuit board for repair. I have worked on several mixers and have three of the PMP5000's myself and dread removing the main board. I am going to suggest something you might consider: Many of the PMP's fail either in their power supply or one of the amps. Due to the repair cost I would consider getting a scrap PMP with this problem and swapping out the panelboard for yours. Often you can get one with blown supply or power amp for around $200 and I suspect a repair shop is going to charge at least that to repair your unit... Then you will have a spare parts bucket as well.

These are delivered with a power supply. If yours has failed, LIKELY there are other problems. I have repaired several supplies and can coach you through which parts to replace. Often the failure originates with a shorted MOSFET in one of the amplifier channels, usually the rearmost one. Getting parts for these is really hard as FullCompass is the Behringer parts distributor. The SPS1000 supply takes out about $25 of parts when they go. The hardest parts to replace are the IGBT transistors as the heat sinks are hard to remove to get the screws out of the transistors. All the repair parts are available using five different online sources.
