Once you confirm that the problem really is with the mixer--and not your cables, signal source, phantom power or other overlooked component--contact Mackie or take your mixer to a certified repairperson. Double-check that the power cable is definitely plugged in to the back of the mixer and that the AC outlet itself is working. Make sure the channel is the problem and not the signal source. Confirm that the "Fader" or "Gain" knob is turned up. Try a new fuse.

Aug 30, Mackie desks are historically affordable, intuitive and tough; the ProFX22 is no exception. As most street-level musicians and self-recordists well know, owning gear that onlyyouknow how to use is a potential recipe for disaster. In predictable Mackie fashion, the ProFX22 is so intuitive that most musicians with knowledge of simple signal flow can feel very comfortable using it with very little preparation or worry please see the ProFX12 sidebar for more on this subject. I enacted this exact scenario a couple of times while using the ProFX22; at the end of each gig, the stand-in mixers both commented how comfortable they were with level, EQ and effects adjustments.
Summary Reviewing the ProFX22 has been a pleasure, as it just makes gigging life simpler. Toss the appropriate cables and microphones in the bag, grab your laptop for event recording and playback, and pack those powered speakers, too: it may just be. Feature-wise, the nearly-square Paired with dual Mackie HD main monitors and a pair of Mackie THA stage monitors, the ProFX allowed BMC to quickly set up and dial in a surprisingly complex, full-bodied mix, with the aforementioned, carefully chosen 16 digital effects always sounding lush and deep, rather than chintzy as low-cost digital effects sometimes can.
Arguably, user-friendliness is never more important than in a house-of-worship setting. If you get to know one Mackie mixer, you pretty well know them all.
