Hi John,

I have one here too.

Dave the ApeMan told me when this happens, you need to go in and replace the electrolytic capacitors.  I'm not sure which ones he meant, but contact him about it for more details.

Itís a Bheringer, from what I have seen of most of there equipment itís not designed to be repaired, when it stops working you toss it and buy another! Looking at difficulty of getting the board out and access to both sides for replacement itís a big job, got to remove a ton of knobs and nuts and screws and at the end of the day itís still a Bheringer. Have trashed a lot of there stuff because one its cheap, two once things like the pots and connectors start to go finding replacements can be an issue and three replacements from Behringer are often so cheap why bother?

A common problem on electronic equipment, even good (expensive!) stuff. I had a similar problem with a TC Electronics unit.

Easy to spot and usually in the SMPSU.

Just either replace all the electrolytics or find the ones with bulging tops or leaking bottoms!

No need to stick it I the trash, easy repair.

Check your power transformer to see if it's making power. If it is not, the transformer may be open.
It has two 120 volt windings. The transformer's are wound too tight and the wires break internally.

If this is the case, just hook up to the other 120 winding and your good to go. This may have nothing to do with your case John, but others should be informed about this fix.

    I have a 9024 that I'm never going to use. I just pulled it from stock and it powered up Ok, but may need a lithium battery (CR-2031 etc.) for the memory. Lasted about 30 seconds on my station when I got it. I monitor my audio with headphones and the latency causes me brain damage and I can't talk. Please come get (for a racer's favorite price) if you like. Use my QRZ email, I don't get on this site much.

finding bad caps, with unit powered, check the mV of noise on each one.. too much noise from switchers or whatever, can mess up computerized operation well before it affects analog audio signals.
