Question about Mackie 1604 Vlz3 16 Channel Mixer
I have an older Mackie CR1604 mixer (not the newer VLZ Pro model) that has 2 channels that don't work correctly. With the faders positioned anywhere but "off", I get output from the "mains", but I can't control the volume with the faders. With those faders completely "off", the output is zero, just like the channels that work.
If all other functions work for those channels, the most likely problem is the fader itself. These can fail and operate more like switches rather than faders. Without witnessing the behavior, I can not state that for sure. While these mixers are not the hardest to work on, they are time consuming. The faders can be purchased from Mackie directly. If you need to have this repaired, any shop that repairs audio gear should be able to erpair this for you. Where are you located?

Usually Faders 10KD stopped working, very easy to replace. Faders are available on Full Compass on the below website:
