Rane 2016 phono question...

Hi,

I have a Rane MP & XP2016 (orig. 1999 model).

The problem that I have is that channel 2's left channel is much louder than the right. It also show up on the XP. I have changed the 1200s into different channels and all OK. Any ideas?

Also, the channel 4 is dead on phono.

I havn't tried channels 2 & 4 with an cd player on aux yet (what are cds?) but if the phono preamps have gone are they still available?


Much appreciated.

Cheers,
Jeromy.

Only sure why to find out would be to measure the voltage around each Op Amp in the Phono Section to find out where the missing voltage is dropping. You'll need to take it a Tech, sounds like an easy repair.

When i had an original 2016 i had the same issues.
It turned out to be the switches on the rear panel (phono/line switches, Theres 4 of them)
Spray plenty of contact cleaner in and push them in and out several times.

Sorry to bump an old thread but do I just spray contact cleaner onto the switches on the pcb board?

Does it matter if I get contact cleaner on the pcb board?

Dumb questions but this is all new to me!

just spray as much as you can into the switches and push them in and out several times.
A bit on the board wont hurt anything, just clean any excessive amount off with a cotton bud or something
Leave it a couple of minutes before powering back up.

I gave the contact cleaner a go but no luck.

Are there any other things I could do before I take it to a tech?


Cheers.

There's not much else you can do unless you know how to measure voltage and interpret the results. Switches do have a mechanical life, so it may need replacing though you could bypass the switch to find out by using jumper cables, that's assuming the switch is at fault. Other than that, you'll need a tech and if i a recall correctly most components on there are surface mount which always makes repair a little more tricky.

Good luck.
