Ok guys, I'm fairly new to the board, we have had it for a couple of months. Everything works fine except for the phantom power switch. I have never been able to get it to work, when the 48v switch is activated, I'm not getting anything at all through the mic. Is there some kind of master switch for the phantom power? I looked through the manual multiple times but have come up with nothing.

No magic switch, just the buttons on the top panel. Is it missing from all inputs? Some inputs? There have been some power supply issues and some internal connector issues that could be causing your problem.

I assume that mics that don't require phantom power work, but if not that's a diferent story.

Yes it is missing from all inputs, and yes all non-condenser mics work

Sorry for this silly question, but did you try another phantom powered mic?
I was trying to get our drum overheads working with a dead mic and thought I had the issue you describe. Worked fine when I tried the other mic.

Yea we did. We tried every mic we had. Even took one off another board and tried it, still nothing.

Sounds like either you have a failed phantom power supply (which probably means a failed power supply, I think it's all in one unit) or a connector has come off.

If you're into doing your own maintenance, you can open it up, look around, and maybe you'll see what fell off.

There may be a fuse for the phantom supply but it's probably inside the power supply assembly itself, not someplace convenient where you can check it and replace it. But usually when a fuse blows, it's because something made it blow and the replacement will blow again until you fix the actual problem.
