Resurrecting this old thread.

I also have an old Mackie 1604-VLZ with intermittent channel issues. Was thinking of replacing all of the ribbon cables but I'm unsure how to source replacements.

Does anyone have any further direction on that?

Thanks!

I bet Mackie still has them in stock if you ask, but they won't be free.

However I also bet if you clean the old ones with DeOxit and put a little
dab of dielectric grease on them, they will be fine in spite of the lower
contact area.

Shameful of Mackie to have the ( very rare) problem happen and NEVER solve it.

Parallels with Marshall recently selling tens of thousands of 100W and 50W tube amps with defective PCBs.
Never any recalls or compensation to buyers for having to buy new ones, most also defective.

They definitely did fix it, because the replacement cables that they
provided were from a different manufacturer and did not fail. This
was discussed here extensively back when it happened in the nineties.

At the time, they said the problem was because the male header and female
connector were from different vendors and did not have the same shape
contacts. I don't know if this is true or not, but I do know that reseating
and greasing the contacts seemed to fix things if not permanently at least
for a good long time.

** Horse manure.

The problem was incompatible ribbon cable and IDC pins.
One had only to touch the ribbon itself to hear signals drop in and out.
Re-tightening the headers in a vice often helped, for a time.

Never seen the same issue with ANY other cables.
Same goes for Marshall, severely leaking PCB material is unheard of in guitar amps.

Thanks for your replies. I'm just surprised to not find anything online regarding these. You'd think there would be more detailed information on how to fix it somewhere but I haven't found anything except forum postings talking about the replacement cable set (which of course is not available anymore).

I'll reach out to Mackie and maybe someone there can point me in the right direction.

Please remember after you have finished insulting the person, to remember

Since you seemed perfectly capable of spewing invective, but not so capable
of understanding my (admittedly tersely worded) post, let me try it again
using more words.

Insulation displacement connectors have been used by phone and internet
companies for decades. The 66 and 110 IDC terminal blocks
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/66_block
have been in use for 60 years, which seems a long time to be using an
“inherently dodgy connector”. Ethernet connections are made using a
combination of punchdown (IDC) and crimp (close enough) connections, so the
fact that you are able to reply to this post is evidence that IDC
connectors are reliable.

What went wrong for Mackie? I don’t know. Maybe it was a mechanical issue
(wire was marginally too small for the connector, so insufficient spring
pressure) or metallurgical (incompatible metals), or the cables were badly
assembled. That does not prove your assertion that all IDC connectors are
inherently dodgy.

Now that I have used more words, please feel free to respond to the
content. Mindless insults will be, of course ignored.

PS: Apologies for using the phrase IDC connector. It’s wrong, but to leave
out the superfluous “connector” sounds wrong.

Awfully nice of you to snip my post showing the reasons why I thought your
original post was wrong.

PS: It’s best not to stare into a mirror when you’re posting. You may
inadvertently post about yourself instead of the person you’re replying to.

OK, then explain what you really meant. Actually participate in the
discussion and point out how I have misunderstood you. And see if you can
do it without the heaping dose of abuse that you have been sprinkling on
every one of your replies.

You’re not making this easy, are you?

You had written two things that weren’t insults:

1) “The problem was incompatible ribbon cable and IDC pins.
One had only to touch the ribbon itself to hear signals drop in and out.
Re-tightening the headers in a vice often helped, for a time. ”

2) “IMO IDC = Inherently Dodgy Connection”

So as far as I can tell, you said that Mackie mixed parts that shouldn’t
have been combined, and the resultant assembly wasn’t reliable (which I
agree is quite plausible) and then you said that IDCs are “inherently
dodgy”, which I disagreed with. Like any other component that is meant to
interface with another component, there are defined tolerances on the
interface, and if you violate this tolerances, things don’t work. This does
not mean that the concept is inherently bad, but simply that certain key
dimensions need to have attention paid to them. If I built an XLR connector
which was 10% larger, it would be a compatibility disaster, but that
doesn’t invalidate that the XLR is a generally good design. I had pointed
out that the successful use of IDC connectors in the telecom and internet
industries for 60 years implied that they were not “inherently dodgy”.

So what didn’t I read, and what didn’t I understand?
