MY JOB DEPENDS ON THIS! SONY DSR PD 170 AUDIO PROBLEMS

Thanks for taking the time to check this out! Earlier today I was shooting an interview and I couldn't get the wireless microphone to work so I just decided I would figure it out later and use the Audio 2 that the boom mic would pick up. Later I tried to figure it out and go figure I dug myself deeper and now I'm not getting any audio from Audio 1 or 2. Can you please walk me through the levels each switch needs to be on, on the audio panel so that both the cordless mic works and the boom mic works? I'm using a Samson T32M transmitter which corresponds with a Samson UHF M32 receiver. Thanks again!

1- Does built-in mic work?
2- Connect direct mic and check sound instead of wireless mic and confirm camera audio circuit.
3- It is Sony professional camera and this should be repaired by Sony qualified technician as you stated that your job depends on it so don't take risk. Attempt of repair by unqualified person is not advised.
Hope this info will help you.

MY JOB DEPENDS ON THIS!!! SONY DSR PD170 AUDIO PROBLEMS


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

The Sony PD170 is not an everyday equipment, nonetheless, I will assume that on the Sony DSR PD170:
  • the Samson UHF M32 receiver is plugged to Audio 1;
  • boom mic is plugged to Audio 2; (or vice versa) and
  • Both Audio 1 & 2 are using the XLR connectors.
Assuming that your boom mic is a conventional dynamic, on the Audio Control Panel, pls set:
  • INPUT 1 -
  • MIC CH SELECT CH1&CH2
  • INPUT LEVEL MIC
  • +48 OFF
  • INPUT 2 -
  • INPUT LEVEL MIC
  • +48 OFF
This is of course assuming that both the boom mic and the output of the Samson UHF M32 receiver are set to MIC level. In some instances the Samson UHF M32 receiver requires a LINE setting. The only time the +48 is set to ON is when the mic that is used/plug in requires phantom power such as condenser types. If the mic or the Samson UHF M32 receiver requires power then this should be switched ON otherwise, there will be no audio coming in. Though most M32 uses a 9 volts battery.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hissing sound


you can check the monitor audio with earphones if the sound hissing when your recording that means it came from the audio, usually wierd defects cause by bad contact conector.
