    Good Morning;

    For some reason channels 9 thru 16 are dead. But not consistently.
    The other day I had set up for an upcoming show and all worked just fine. Yesterday I went in to do some recording for a friend of mine and channels 9 thru 16 where dead. Tried everything (I Think). Moved inputs to channel 8…fine. Moved input to channel 17…fine. Did a hard reset no change. Shut down and restarted and it was fine. Any thoughts of what could have caused this?

    Yes Dead. Nothing. Solo, etc. Nothing. Just 9 to 16. Pretty weird to me. And then to come back on when re-starting.

    bad ribbon cable connection, send the unit back and get it replaced.

    That was my first thought as well. I was just hoping it was something else. Thanks for your reply though.

    RIC4001, I have the same problem with yours. Channel 9-16 is dead on my QU-24.

    Did you get it fix? What is the problem?

    If the “gain knob” on the channel screen is not RED, you’re on a digital input instead of the local console input. Make sure that your inputs are all the same. I don’t know why things would change as a block, but it IS possible from the scant info given about the ” problem” that no matter what the cause, the “fault” may simply be mis-assignment of input source.

    Worth checking.

    The likelihood of there being *a* problem is very small.

    if it was me I’d pretty much guarantee that I’d misrouted or misassigned something

    Do you have either a AB168 or AR2412 stage box to try and see if the channels 9-16 work via the stage box through the mixer. That would somewhat narrow down if it is a mixer input hardware problem isolated to channels 9 – 16 or a software processing issue with those channels. Either way it doesn’t fix the problem, just an experiment to try.

    Or you could try USB inputs, from USB A if you have a previous recording you can use, or USB B if not.
