Default dcx2496 just died. Any thoughts?

After not touching it for a long time, I thought I might just tweak the bass levels on my three way active dipole. Prior to fiddling, I turned the DCX off, and then back on.

Instead of a cheery welcome screen, I now have a unit that merely gives a dim pulsing screen with no characters at all. The dim pulse on the screen was matched with a sonic pulse through the speakers which I sincerely hope has not damaged my speakers.

Any Behringer experts care to suggest a remedy or a diagnosis? I heard something about poor power supply components.

I have tried a reset to factory by press the two page keys while powering up, and the recovery thingie by pressing the Input A button while powering up.


All suggestions grumpily entertained.

Try fiddeling with the internal power supply cables.
The connectors can make a bad connection.

I had this problem with de DEQ2496 (allready after 3 days)
after slighty moving the connectors, the problem has not reapeared again. (8 months now)

Good luck

Maybe you can remove the connector(s) and spray contact cleaner on both pins and socket before re-plugging it.
