||Behringer Mixer help|
Does anyone know where I can get a schematic for a Behringer MX3282A mixer. This thing lights up like a Christmas tree. It has a seperate power supply. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all.

Dan, if all the peak lights and everything come on, it is almost certain one of the analog power rails is missing. The power supply provides +/- 15 or 18 or something close. If one of those goes away, then all the op amp outputs slam over to the remaining rail and the peak meters just interpret that as a max signal.
Look at the corners of any op amp in the mixer and see if the volyages are both there. COuld be a connector problem in the umbilicle, or the supply itself has a problem. I think this thing uses three terminal regulators, whatever the next step up from LM317 is.
On the other hand, I have had to chase down a short across one of those rails out in the mixer. Every chip has a small blue bypass cap mext to it, and if it shorts, then the rail will load down to nothing. Usually a small black hole forms on the part, but not always. It can be a real bear to find it. Separating the sections of PC board can help.

Thanks for the info. I knew when I posted that I was missing the 12VDC supply. Thanks for the explanation of why that would cause it to light up.
The power supply board has a few open runs and lifted pads from a previous "repair". So I'm trying to figure out what all should be connected.
Hopefully its just the open runs and not in the board itself. That does sound like a pain in the butt to find. Thanks again.
