SD16 microphone inputs not working

We have a SD16 stage box that partially stopped working after loosing power a couple of times in one night. All the mic inputs have stopped working - choir monitor, floor wedges, subwoofer and send to another building are all fine.

I have done the following trouble shooting:

Turned unit off and unplugged for a short amount of time;

Changed the CAT 6 cable from A to B (also at X32 board);

Plugged handle mic into all the mic lines with no signal;

Checked routing on the board with no changes;

I will turn off power and unplug for an extended period today (a few hours) to see if that helps.

Any suggestions would be helpful and appreciated.

Re: SD16 microphone inputs not working

Hi Timothy,

Welcome to the forum.

First of all plug the AES50 cable from the X32 back into the A port of the S16. The B port is used for cascading stageboxes only.

Secondly, what mode is the S16 in at present (see wiki)?

Next, I would suggest you upload your current scene file. Here are the instructions

Mode shouldn't be a problem: it's an SD16.
