A page for Behringer digital mixer. My purpose is to collect useful information for the device - manuals, schematics, software and firmware.
If you have anything useful to contribute to this page, do not hesitate to get in contact.
I will also try to gather information about modifications, repair experiences and such from the various forum and web sources.

When you get the fault description of an DDX3216 Program is not loaded, this is caused by an interruption during a firmware update attempt. In this case the flash eprom is erased and the mixer does not start up. There is an emergency tool (DDXupdate V1.11) available (Ask your BEHRINGER support dept.) To start up a DDX3216 when the firmware upgrade has failed. Proceed as follows:
- Install the programm to your computer
- Connect the DDX to the RS232 port
- Start the software
- Choose the com port the DDX is connected to
- Press down the GROUP button and switch on the mixer
- Update will start and last about 10 minutes. Progress is displayed.
Common failure point: Crystal Q3 (32.768kHz). Problem: runs for awhile, then locks up. Mouser part number 559-NC38-LF. Made by Fox, part number NC38.
