Here is the manual if you don't have one:http://www.mackie.com/pdf/archive/cr1604_om.pdf. There are solo buttons for each channel. There is also an auxiliary return solo button. There is also a solo to main button. These buttons are all inter related. Is your main output mute button in or out? Read the manual carefully as there are a myriad of combinations you can use. Have a look at the trouble shooting guide on page 21. If you can't find a solution try contacting Mackie. Let me know if this helps.

Just bought the mackie 1604 vlz3 mixer and cant figure out how to get sound to the main speakers, the speakers and amps are connected correctly


Simplest is to use the LR button at the bottom of the channel strips you want to send to the main mix. Make sure you set the gain for each channel in use so that the clip light just occasionally blinked then back off a fraction.
If you want to use sub channels assign the strip to the appropriate one 1/2 or 3/4 and the assign the sub to the main mix and bring the subs up.

Stuck solo pfl


no sticky drinks near mixers ;)
well PFL doesn't affect the sound but it is annoying if it remains on. try to !gently! hammer on the button. I don't know how to explain but the button should be hit fast that it can snap off. maybe like a snap with your fingers.
You can also remove the button's cap and try to pull it out.

MAckie 1604 VLZ Pro Mixer, running QSC 1850 with jbl's from main outs. I would like to hook up powered subwoofers. What is the correct pathway? kenshireman@msn.com


The best way is to use a two-way crossover between the mixer and the amplifiers. In your case, the low output from teh crossover would go to the powered subs, the highs to the QSC. Use the crossover adjustment to set the frequency crossover point to get the sound quality you require.

I am trying to connect my mackie 1604 into my m audio device so i can record off of a program on my computer. How do I do that?


Using two balanced lines either TRS or XLR depending on what is on your M audiointerface, connect the L and R main outputs of the mixer to the L and R inputs of the M Audio. You will need recording software on your computer.

The "rude muting" light is blinking


That means that one or more of the "SOLO" buttons are down. This is the funtion that sends ONLY the SOLO selected mix to the headphone jack.

I have a mackie cfx 12 mk11 mixer and have a faulty mains out channel(xlr & jack) right mains out is ok, has this mixer got micro electronics and can this problem be repaired by any technician


Yes, there are chips in the unit and any COMPETENT tech should be able to repair.

Since both the XLR and the jack are bad, this implies something more.

USUALLY Mackie drives the XLR and the unbalanced jack seperately so the problem would be what drives the unbalanced jack.

CHECK if you have output at the UTILITY left output jack. If you do, the driver chip for the left output main is the problem.

If you don't, the problem may back up farther into the EQ.

A LOT of troubleshooting can be done on these by using the block diagram in your manual showing signal paths.

Mackie D8B Mixer freezes


Don't know your setup but have you checked out any possible Hum loops? Have you updated any firmware updates? Is your mains input clean (no spikes or very short drop outs of voltage)? Are you near any possible RFI, e.g. Taxi's or CBr's? The list goes on so check out the Mackie forum on the web for more. Good Luck...

Frank.

Hooking up powerd monitors to a Mackie 1604 VLZ3


Are you sending the main mix to the monitors or are you giving them their own mix? What about using the sub groups, use 1 for your monitor send.
