Hello,

Carbon track on fader 1 is open because of wear or just broken, if you are getting sound then the ground carbon track is out but certainly the problem lies in the pot.

Usually the connector that is board mounted is the problem. I would OPEN the unit as there may just be broken solder at the connector inside. If the connector requires replacement, find one at Digikey.com by searching for "power connector coaxial".

Hint: In the future install one of those little lamp switches that are in a little plastic box with knurled knob sticking out the sides. ONLY break ONE wire from the adapter to avoid getting the connections reversed. Since the wires are smaller than lamp cord, tack solder the wires to the piercing points of the switch .

SOURCE: I would like to buy

Cases are being sold on Ebay, new, from several sources, and if you can't find one specifically listed for your unit, contact the sellers as they custom build them. That is a big unit... expect to pay around $150 to $200 for an ATA type case for it.

Here is an example for a Heath/Allen 420. http://cgi.ebay.com/ATA-CASE-ALLEN-HEATH-ZED-420-ZED-420-ZED420-MIXER-/400127078772?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d296eb174

I have bought from them before myself and there are others on Ebay so shop around... You can contact the companies and ask for a specific one and DO compare the size to your unit that they specify as all the companies do not accept returns...

I get a static buzzing noise out both speakers. it stops if I hold the plug cable or master out cables? turntable wires are grounded. help!


If this is stopping when you grab a connector then you have a bad solder on the connector. a short or break in the wire or a ground is bad.

CHANNEL MONTIOR LIGHT WILL NOT STOP FLASHING


You've pressed the "solo" button by accident.

Filter Knob and Buttons move from left to right


If you pull the knobs off, you will find lock nuts under them. You could tighten them up. See if the knobs have set screws on them to lock them in place before pulling them off. On Allen & Heath, I don't think they do but, just in case.

Only half the volume on the left channel of the mixer. Why? :(


Does the left meter do the same thing? If the meter matches the right one, I would suspect the volume potentiometer on the powered speaker. Try exercising the volume knob. There might be some oxidizing on the potentiometer.

I am unable to send a signal via aux 6 from a channel to ONLY the K sub. The only way I get signal is if I raise the channel fader but then the signal goes to the house L/R mains as well. How do I send a...


It appears that AUX6 is default factory strapped as POST FADER. If you want to change that you will have to disconnect jumper L to A for all channels you want the AUX to be pre-fader and instead connect K to S for the option jumpers. I don't know if this requires soldering or whether they are push on jumpers. These should be available in the back cover. In ADDITION you will have to run the switched pre/post fader switch in the PRE position which will make ALL AUX's that are strapped this way PRE FADER.

I have an Allen & Heath 16:2 DX with two fuzzy preamps. Tried contact cleaner with no improvement. Sounds like a preamp problem - lower volume than the rest of the channels with distortion as more...


NEVER, NEVER put contact cleaner into the faders!!! It removes the lube and the faders will be damaged in short order. Try using CRC226 available at Home Depot in the electrical dept. Use ONLY the CRC226 as there are other CRC products that are not applicable. Squirt some in the center of the slots... not too much and work the sliders... if they improve try a little more... If they are still bad, replace the sliders... it is a MISERABLE job involing removing mass number of knobs, screws, etc... and then getting/finding the replacement fader control. Usually I get them from Digikey.com or Mouser.com and sometimes the actuator tab has to be trimmed to length with tin snips so knob will be at right height. The fader must have the same resistance and TAPER as the original as well as mounting tabs.

No sound


There can be any number of reasons for this problem - solve it diagnostically by starting with something that you know is working and work through systematically to the other end.
  1. Test a microphone on a separate amp to make sure it works okay. Check amp and speakers working. Check that all output cables from mixer to amp are working by testing separately.
  2. Plug microphone into a channel on mixer. Also plug in headphones and turn headphone volume control up.
  3. Make sure input sensitivity knob is turned up a bit (say half way) and main output faders (yellow) are up.
  4. Check that channel is turned on (little button just above the channel fader- needs to be pressed down)
  5. press pfl (pre-fade listen) button (next to button to switch channel on)- do you get any sound on main output or headphones or any indicator lights on mixer to show signal is getting that far (eitehr the individual channel metering lights or the main ones in the central section)?
  6. turn off pfl - make sure channel fader (slider) is up - normal position is ) - about 3/4 of way up. Check lights again on individual channel and main output section - any signs?
  7. Is the sub mix button for the channel pressed down - in which case you will need to bring sub mix (red) output faders up as well as main faders.
  8. If you have got signs of signal on the individual channel but not main see if the channel has been routed somewhere odd (like a subgroup of channels).
  9. Plug a working amp and speakers into one of the auxiliary outputs and use the relevant auxiliary send knob (on each channel just above the faders and pfl switches) to pan some signal to that auxiliary out - do you get anything? There is also a headphone socket for listening to the auxiliary channels (with a selector switch /knob to determine which one - make sure it is in the right position) try listening to the auxiliary output with headphones - anything? If yes the problem lies in the main output section.
  10. Check that there is not a jack plug in the insert socket (to route signal through an external effects unit) without a matching return jack being plugged in - if appropriate is relevant effects unit switched on and correctly set up - if unsure remove the insert plug to take it out of the system.
  11. Make sure any mute buttons are not switched in on main outputs.

The internal fan has been making noise and now after 30 min or so we get a loud pop the a descending whine at deafening levels even with the board muted. I'm suspecting an internal supply issue in our...


Hey tifly415, did you ever fix this problem? My church has the same mixer and last night it did the same thing twice during a congregational meeting. No fan noise, but the meters all peg and we get this horrible descending squeal which gets louder as you pull the faders back in a moment of sheer terror and panic. Power it off and back on and it's ok for a while then it happens again. It's happened to me a few times during rehearsals in the past and it definitely is not mic feedback because no one was near the console or doing anything at the time. It seems to be totally random and unpredictable.

I, too, suspect a power supply problem, but it never seems to happen when my troubleshooting gear is nearby. The only thing unusual yesterday was that the mixer was left on almost all day, so it may have been warmer than usual.

Anyone else have the same problem, or better yet, know of a solution?
