SOURCE: No volume control with 2 faders on Mackie CR1604 mixer

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?

SOURCE: Where can I get New master faders for Mackie 1604

Your best bet is to visit the link below and select the "local distributor" option under section 4. You will then get contact information for a local distributor. I have found Mackie to be very helpful with parts requests. Please note that these units are a bit tricky to open up. Take care during dis-assembly not to tear any cables.

Hi, I have a Mackie vlz3 mixer. Last night I turned everything on and it was all distorted. I did some trouble shooting. It is definitely the board. Can you help. Ted


sounds like it could be dust or moisture ...Try cleaning the board and knobs and faders. this may help it may make it worse. Also while at it...check all connections...especially from board to amps. or to outboard gear. Could be a bad chord

Hi, my makie 1604 vlz channels are tempermental in that sometimes they work and sometimes they dont. what can i do?


There are cables that bridge the sets of channels together. You MAY have a bad connection of one of these. The strips of channels I believe are in banks of 8 in the Mackie's. The cables should be accessable with removing the back of the unit.
If you have had a spill of liquid into the faders, then you know what the problem is and requires extensive work to replace faders. You could try putting a bit of CRC226 into the middle of the fader slots if the faders are noisy. You can get the CRC226 at the Home Depot in the electrical dept. Use ONLY this exact product.

My mackie 1604 vlz 16channel has a problem, it changes sounds during the use and faders need to be cleaned. why is it changing sounds on me...?


If the faders have become noisy, they may be changing due to poor contact. Try putting a small amount of CRC226 in the center of the slot of each fader and then move fader knob to top and bottom. CRC226 is available in the electrical department of Home Depot in a small can with spout... about $2.70

One of my channels creates a popping noise on my mackie 16 track board. Can I do something or does it need to go in for repairs? BKKirk


Check the possibility of marginal connectors.

You MIGHT try putting a small bit of CRC226 into the fader for that channel if it might be the fader. CRC226 is available in the electrical dept of Home Depot in a small spray can with a tube spout. DO NOT use De-Oxit in the faders. Put the tube into the slot and give a SMALL shot and work the slider. This MIGHT fix your problem. Other than that it is ready to go to the shop.

Looking for sliders for mackie 1402 vlz pro how much are they?


You can purchase the channel faders directly from Mackie Service Dept., you can replace them yourself if you're good at soldering - HOWEVER, be advised that disassembling the unit to get at the faders to replace them will require a lot of time and patience if you've never done it before. If the faders are not moving smoothly, it's possible that the wrong type of cleaning spray was used on them and there's a possibility that they could stop moving and controlling sound.
