20 Most Recent Behringer XENYX 502 5-Input 2-Bus Analog Mixer XENYX 502 Questions & Answers

It sounds like you have a condenser mic hooked up to the XLR input. Phantom is not available on the other inputs, just the XLR.

Check page 8 of the manual. http://www.behringer.com/assets/Q1202USB_Q1002USB_Q802USB_Q502USB_M_EN.pdf

I doubt that there is a problem with the unit. Usually people have problems with their cables or the speakon plugs themselves.
Unscrew the connector that is used on both ends and double-check their connections. Sometimes the screws that hold the heavy gauge wire in place, come loose. Also make sure that they are in the right places. Sometimes you have 4 connections. Make sure they are in +1 and -1 connections. Every once in a while you'll find a quirk unit that requires you to use +2 and -2 instead. Look at the back of the amp. It should tell you which numbers it uses. Make sure you check the same thing on the speaker end also. If you have a meter or continuity checker, use it to make sure it's wired right.
This is a professional piece of equipment. They don't go bad easily. Make sure you tighten those connections real good and that you pay close attention to the engraved numbers on the speakon connectors. (That is if they are quality connectors. The cheap ones may NOT tell you the numbering or the phase, ((+ or -)). Hint: The negative one is always closest to the outside of the plug. You'll have to study it to understand that. The screw terminals on the inside have 'walls' on both sides of it. Those are the + connections.
Also, check the switches on the front. You may have one of the switches in the wrong position or setting. Also if you're using phantom powered mics, you have to turn the phantom power on or else they will not work. Hope this helps.

Do you have the mics and dongle system accessories? Your question does not state if you have them or not. If you do have these accessories, and you only want to use the wired option, remove the dongle so it stops searching for the microphones.

Hope this helps.

Hello Doug, obviously for what you are saying, you would have a problem in the effects processor of your Behringer, I suggest you use an external processor to corroborate that the problem is not in the shipping bar, or in the allocation of returns
If you have technical knowledge, disarm the mixer and control the internal connections of the effects processor, see if there are no loose solders
I sent you the link to download the circuits of your PMP5000
If you do not find the origin of the fault, look for a specialized technical service
I hope you can solve the problem
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Doug, evidentemente por lo que comentas, tendr?as un problema en el procesador de efectos de tu Behringer, te sugiero que utilices un procesador externo para corroborar que el problema no esta en la barra de env?os, ni en la asignaci?n de retornos
Si tienes conocimientos t?cnicos, desarma el mixer y controla las conexiones internad del procesador de efectos, observa si no tiene soldaduras flojas
Te env?o el link para descargar los circuitos de tu PMP5000
Sino encuentras el origen de la falla, busca un servicio t?cnico especializado
Espero puedas resolver el problema
Saludos Franco Dosil

Cheapest way to try and fix is, with the unit off, turn the crackling control back and forth many times. Wiper sometimes removes corrosion on the carbon strip. If this doesnt work take the knob off and dribble some deoxit d5 down the shaft and work it some more.

Hello, the failure you describe may be caused by the aging of the power supply capacitors and may have coincided with the use of the phantom and not be responsible

Hola, la falla que describes puede estar originada por envejecimiento de los capacitores de fuente de alimentacion y pudo coincidir con el uso del phanton y no ser este el responsable

As long as you watch the impedance, the unit is spec'ed with 8 ohms. The power rating of a speaker is only the speaker. You could put a 500 watt speaker, r a 20 watt speaker on a 20 watt amp, it will not make any difference. If the speakers are 8 ohms the the impedance could be range from 32 ohms or 2 ohms, depending on the arrangement.

All I can offer is a story I read about john Lennon telling a studio tech he was going to do something similar - admittedly with 1960s technology. The story goes that the technician said "No Way" it would produce too much distortion. He did it anyway and I think this is what produced some of the "fuzz bass" type sounds in a couple of reords.

Turntables output at phono level NOT line level so make sure your settings are correct to engage the phono pre-amp in the desk for the lower signal level.
