I’m having an issue with my XENYX 1832FX mixer. If I knew what component to replace, I could easily do it myself, but I’m not quite sure where to start!
Here’s the issue:
Normally, I plug a set of studio monitors to the mixer, and then have my audio out from my PC run to the mixer via usb. This setup has been working perfectly for about a year. However, upon power-up yesterday, I noticed that my right monitor had very loud and choppy noise/static. Immediately I thought that there might be something wrong with the monitor or the cable, but after checking both these things, I realized the problem is elsewhere. I then suspected grounding, but the the noise is only on the right channel, and I did try different wall outlets, so that’s not the problem.
Even with no inputs (just the mixer plugged in and the monitors attached to it), there is still a lot of hissing on the right channel! I’ve come to the conclusion that there is something wrong internally solely with the right output channel; maybe something popped/blew up inside? The weird thing is that everything was working perfectly during my 2nd last session, and no settings or knobs were tampered with at all.
Can someone advise?
