Help behringer xenyx 1002fx !!

If you registered your mixer there will be a three year warranty so get it back to your local Behringer service depot. If not check the output from the PSU, if that's OK then I'm afraid it is very unlikey to be economical to repair. Sell it as spares and repairs on eBay.

Connected wrong voltage power supply to my mixer when in Hong Kong.

If you have the polarity correct for the connector, and adequate output from the transformer with adequate regulation and filterning, there should be little problem with constructing one or hacking the cord off the dead supply and wiring it to a new one.

The question you need to ask yourself is whether that wait is worth it? If you need it to make money with it right now- then just use care in wiring the new supply up. I have lost track to how many times I have rewired a supply to make it work on something it was not originally on. As long as the specs on the new supply match those of the old one- no problem..

I imported a behringer SX3242FX today and it was working fine for about an hour suddenly I felt the digital effect that I selected( Delay ) has lost from the microphones and voices became dry.. Then I...

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.

I have a Behringer 1204FX mixer. It has an intermittent fault whereby the power supply pulses on off on off etc etc. This can continue for two minutes or ten minutes quite randomly.

That is known as :squegging". It can be caused by any of several failures. One failure involves overload that trips the overload sensor. Another is a problem in the feedback loop of the regulator. I would first replace C13 on the power supply and maybe C10. When working on these supplies use an isolation transformer for personal safety. Note that it appears that C13 MAY have too high a voltage rating and if an electrolytic the dielectric can deform and electrical value reduce. There are many other components that could cause the problem.

How do you make an echo on this mixer

You will need to buy an effects unit for this, either delay or reverb depending on the echo you want, there are no built-in effects on this mixer, sorry!

Hope this helps!

My husband purchased one of your xr8600 peavey mixer the problem hes having is he cant get the echo settings right.please can you help.

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.

This is likely a very simple problem. Look for a connector that you did not seat properly or got pulled off when you opened the unit. The cables are often short and pull off the connections or even break a wire. It is NOT likely you need a new power supply.

ALSO see if you might have pinched a wire when re-assembling the unit.

My Behringer XENYX 2442FX Mixer does not power up, the only light that comes on is the phantom power light. I opened it up and noticed that the switching power supply has multiple voltage outputs. We...

You should find +/-15 volts and +5 volts as well as the phantom power... but that light can come on at much lower than desired voltage.

Note that the regulators are current limited so a short on the mixer board can kill one of the voltages.... but you are not getting any input from teh switching portion of the regulator so the switching part of the supply is apparently dead. To replace the supply you would have to call Behringer at 1-425-672-0816 to get the part number and an incident number and then call FullCompass which is their part distributor now.

When working on a switching power supply, use an isolation transformer for safety and use a 60 watt lamp in series with the power cord to limit current during testing.

The circuitry will be SIMILAR to the power supply found on page 9 of schematic you can download at:

No power except on effects unit

Likely a power supply problem. Will require service. If uses external pwoer cube, try a replacement of correct rating and polarity.
