Any good with sound equipment?
I've got a problem with a Behringer MX3282 mixer, its power supply keeps blowing the 63mA glass fuse. We changed it for the eighth time tonight, it's getting ridiculous. The thing has been fine for about two years so I don't know why it's decided to start playing up. We had a similar problem with our power amp (also Behringer sadly) blowing fuses, that problem went away on its own. I think it might be to do with the mains supply.
Anyone got any ideas?

Yeah, sorry I should have said. I am using the correct type of fuse and it is slow blow.

To be honest, I don't think it's blown a fuse except for when we've not been using it, so I have been contemplating if it might be something surging when we switch it on or off.
Are you thinking it might be down to faulty leads? Could I test this theory with a short?

I'll try shorting the +ve and -ve to each other and ground and see if that blows the fuse. If it doesn't then I doubt it's the phantom power that causes it. Come to think of it, I can't use #5 on the multicore at the moment because the socket is pushed in. Maybe that's causing a short to the casing?
Hadn't thought of that!

Don't worry, I know how to wire an XLR lead
We do have a lot of old ones that may have gone faulty, I need to invest in a tester. It takes a while to test them with a multimeter!
