MG10XU Distortion/Noisey

Unread post by Brodie » Thu Jun 13, 2019 9:10 pm

Hi there!

I have a Yamaha MG10XU and popping sounds and buzzing keeps coming from it.

I've looked in the manual and I've tried a lot of things to fix it.
On Channel 4 there is a Red Light that says PEAK.
It seems/sounds like that's where it's coming from.

I don't know how to fix it please let me know =)

Hi Brodie - and welcome to the forums . . . . .

Hmm, thats an odd one . . . . .
You have a condenser (I assume) Mic plugged in Ch1 (hence the Phantom Power is ON)?

Normally - Mics are connected with 3-pin Cannon plugs, LINE sources are traditionally TRS Jacks . . . .

I can't remember if this is significant when requiring phantom power . . . .

in as much as whether or not Phantom power is available if LINE is selected . . . . .

(but that's a side issue I think, and NOT connected with that peak overload problem . . . .)

Ch4 is turned DOWN - and nothing plugged in . . . :confusion-confused:

If that peak led is ON all the time, then that channel thinks it is getting a signal overload from somewhere . . . .

What happens if you move the Mic to Ch4?

Any change in behavior? . . . . . does the peak led go out/start behaving normally?

The fact this is happening without anything plugged into 4, makes me think something has fallen down that hole and is shorting - producing that signal . . . .

Exercise Ch4's socket with a plug and see if it "clears" . . . . .

Hope that helps . . . .
