Default Technote pmx8

Hi I`m new to this and have loads of questions. But a bit about me I`m 62 always been interested in music and have got hold of some gear/lights and use them In my summer house but I sometimes do discos for a charity Im involved with. My first question I hope someone can help me with is I have an old Technote pmx8 power mixer but no manual and I cant find one on the net. The mixer seems to work ok except for the aux sliders so I am looking for parts but cant find. Also I don't know what all the inputs/outputs do. I know the basic operation ie mike in speaker out and controls for bass, mid, high etc but not about feedback and other sockets on this mixer. I am hoping someone knows how or where I can get info about this mixer so I can use it to its best. Thanks in advance Wee Al

Hi,

You might have an effects loop (usually for reverb) send and return
and a monitor output as well, all fairly standard mixer stuff.

Click the image to open in full size.

This ? It should be fairly self explanatory if you read a few mixer manuals.

rgds, sreten.

Hi,

All the inputs and outputs are usually self explanatory,
and TBH I doubt the AUX sliders are broken / need fixing.

I can see an AUX return which means it must have a send.
Connect the send and return for that loop to work.

rgds, sreten.

May I suggest: get the user manual for just about any similar looking mixer and read it. They all work the same, and only the details might be different. It would get you informed on most of your unit.

Smile technote pmx6

Hi Guys,
Sorry not posted sooner but have been busy. Have read what you`se have said and will download some manuals etc and read / experiment. On slider issue I found masters weren`t working unless I pushed down on them or put a weight to hold them down eventual not even that worked so I swapped over master and aux hence the need to fix slider unless I read somewhere that they might need cleaned out and some type of lubricant sprayed in. Any advice re this.

Thanks Wee Al
