    Recently while recording channel 2 on my mx8000 stopped working. It reads the level and clip leds, but will not send it anywhere, to the main mix groups etc... What can be the problem here. Other then its behringer.

    I had simular issues with my old B MX8000. When this would happen, I would sometimes have to overdrive the hell out of a channel to get it to pass a signal. I mean HOT!!! Clipping the poop out of the input with the Channel Fader at +6dB, and all the sudden - your signal comes back to the Mains/Subgroups/Aux Sends. Just make SURE you turn DOWN the speakers and Headphones - or they will die a horrible death when the signal kicks back in...

    Needless to say, I got rid of my B. It was OK as a band rehearsal board, but that is about it IMO. Quality stuff here! :wink: (LOL)

    Later :cool:

    Have you tried plugging in the channel's insertbus a few times?
    As Behri uses cheap connector materials, the switch inside the insertbus might get faulty/oxidated after years of use.

    I remember this console from a studio I worked in for two years. Although it did develop one bad channel, it sounded much better than the tascam m600 we had on the other room. I actually liked it quite a bit and I think it's a good console for the price.
