Noisy EFX-1000
Redirect me if this is in the wrong forum...

I recently purchased a second hand EFX-1000 and can't get rid of a signal noise.
Everytime i turn the 1000 on, the noise comes through and if i press the bypass button it almost completely eliminates it. I thought it was my old school Sony amp so i bought a new one but that didn't help, purchased new rca's that lowered it a tiny bit, swapped speaker wire and no change...running out of ideas now someone help!

Could it be the unit?

Are your RCA's run near your power cords or an PC cords etc?
Anything electrical can induce noise into the system, although it sounds like the unit itself maybe busted?
Have you tried cleaning the RCA input terminals or slightly pushing or pulling the RCA's out a little? Maybe bad connections?

Yeah the RCA's are no where near power cords so thats all clear.
I haven't cleaned the RCA inputs or played with it but like i said, if i hit the bypass button it almost completely elimnates it....hmmm

Surely it could be the unit, but try to go to a friend place only with the unit and the power cord see what happen there. And of course check if you did not pluig the unit the wrong way.

Tell me about it, and its meant to have grouse sound quality!?
Not sure what behringer desk sounds like but it's got a lot of static coming through and the noise. I plugged it into my bedroom stereo right now and the noise is still there but i have to turn the volume right up to hear it.

Maybe they are just noisy units...

I don't know much about EFX 1000s but perhaps just unbalanced RCA outputs?

I am taking a stab in the dark here.
