Behringer MX9000 and effects...

I have a new MX9000 24channel mixer which I'd like to be excited about but cannot get my effects to work with it.
I have a Lexicon MX200 reverb and Behringer T1952 compressor. Both very simple units. Can always get a signal from the board by using aux sends to input into the devices but no matter what I do to connect them to the board I get no signal and cannot hear the effects!! I've tried subgroup inserts, aux returns, main inserts, external input, etc and still no effects. I've used TRS Y-cables, single TRS cables and plain 1/4" mono cables and nothing is working.
My ideal setup would be to have the effects accessible from any and all channels at any given time for recording and playback. I don't want to use individual channel inserts especially as I want to record my 5 drum mics onto five separate channels/tracks.
At this point, however, I'd like to hear any effects at all any way I can!!!!!!!!!
I'm new at this kind of board but find it hard to believe it would be this difficult.
Oh, the manual is no help at all. Not quite basic enough for me I guess.

Please help

Aux send(s) will feed the input of your reverb. Now, do you see signal on the reverb unit? Every aux will have an aux master, so make sure that's on/up too. Once you see signal on the unit just have the L/R outputs feed two channels on the board. Or stereo returns. Turn those up and pan them hard left and right. First step to troubleshooting is to find out what the problem is and where it's happening. As for the inserts, you have the Y cable go from the insert jack on the back of your board and go into the input and out put of your compressor. I would imagine since it's Behringer, you won't have to do anything to get the insert into the channel path. On higher end boards like SSL and Neve you have to manually activate the insert. That's all i can think of. Good luck.
