    When I press the power button the LED says Lo 8AE and as soon as I release the on/off button, the message disappears. As of last Sunday, I could actually turn it on and it said LO BAT and the on/low batt light on the front flashed.

    BTW, this is actually an SK100 Bodypack transmitter but that selection wasn't available.

    I have a SK 100 also and that problem just poped up. I used it with no problem Thurs. night and turned it off . then went to perform Sun. morn and all I got was the red on/low Batt light. I tried several new alkaline batteries and one the rechargeable we use in our wireless handhelds. Any ideas why?

    We use 9 Volt Duracell Procels which, I understand, are designed for this application.

No worries, thanks for getting back to me. Another questions for you. What sort of batteries are you using. Are they rechargeable, alkaline, carbon zinc, or the Sennheiser BA 2015 accupack rechargeable.

I have a sennheiser 300 iem g2 transmitter. Last night at a gig i was hearing some high pitched feedback through my in ears depending on where i was standing. Also the low battery light was on even wi

  1. "Feedback" might have been intermodulation with another RF frequency. Make sure to use Sennheiser's frequency finder, or something similar, to determine what TV channels are clear. If you're using more than one transmitter, make sure they're all using the same channel bank.
  2. The low bat/on indicator should be on solid if battery is good; and flashing if the battery is low.

Shure slx1 bodypack won't turn off

The Shure body packs will only last so long before needing repair. You can contact Shure and have them refurbished for about 90 dollars a piece. It will take about a week once they receive it. I am very familiar with Shure as they are my go to brand for all of my installs. If you would like assistance, information or pricing on replacements let me know. These can be fixed though.

My Shure mics work fine but two bodypacks are not working. Are there fixable parts in there?

Try switching mic's with known good system. The small diameter cable going to headset and lav mic's are easily damaged. If the mic feeding the bodypack is good, fresh battery, mute disengaged and channels set properly then it's Shure factory service time.

I suggest sending the unit to Shure for repairs. The battery indicator is controlled by the micro. Thus, it needs to looked at by a service center that has access to the micro code.

Shure ULX1 wireless body pack has good battery but Batt light(red) is on and no channel display or output but backlight is lit. Any suggestions

Remove the battery and leave it out for a couple minutes to see if that helps. Also, check the battery with a volt meter to make certain it is above 8.5 volts. I have seen entire cases of batteries that are defective. If the battery checks to be above 8.5 volts and you have removed the battery for over two minutes, then send the bodypack in to Shure Service (

I have a shure ULX-1m1 transmitter with full battery but will not work. screen comes up green nothing on the display and the battery light is red, what could this be? and how do I fix it

First, sometimes LCD screens have an intesity/angle control and at extreme range of these characters are sometimes not visible. Check you manual to see if your unit might have such a setting.

Also this unit has some control lockouts so make sure it is unlocked so the automatic frequency selection can be made.

Verify the status of the LED in your manual. MANY Shure mics display the LED red when battery is low.

DO NOT trust a battery as being full because it is new.

ALSO DO NOT USE rechargeable batteries in these as the rechargeable battery does NOT produce 9 volts... usually only 7.2 volts (in spite of the labeling) which is insufficient and will give a low battery indication.

Transmission distance problem on Sennheiser G2 wireless

I regularly use G2 ew100+300 systems, which have a manual squelch adjustment on the reciever. Squelch is difficult to explain but here we go: a squelch adjustment gives you the options LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH these settings effect transmission distance and interference rejection. for example: a HIGH squelch is less prone to interference but has a shorter transmittion distance. A LOW squelch is more prone to interferance but allows for a longer transmission distance. For most applications, a MID squelch is fine. If this does not help- the next option would be to swap arials between units and see if the problem moves. The G2 series are a 30mw transmittion which has an effective range of about 50m
hope this helps.

Shure Wireless Mike no Output

Check the battery with a volt meter. If the battery measures lower than 8 volts on a volt meter, replace the battery. I have seen entire cases of brand new batteries that are defective. Make certain to check it with a volt meter. If the battery tests fine, then send the bodypack to Shure for repairs.

Sennheiser SK 100 Bodypack Transmitter won't power up.

Hello. I Am Not Familiar With This Exact Model, But I Have And Still Do Own A Number Of Wireless Units. There Are A Number Of Things That Can Go Wrong, But If The Unit Wont Power Up, I Would First Check The Battery Compartment For Loose Battery Connections. Over Time They Can Weaken Or Just Get Bent The Wrong Way. Then I Would Look For Loose/Unsoldered Wiring. I Have Encountered Many Cases Where The Battery Compartment Contacts Become Loose , Or The Wiring Going To It. Good Luck
