AKG 414 crackle

I have an AKG c414 B-ULS and for quite some time it has been making a very noticable windy, crackling noise (like someone is blowing onto the mic, and the sound of a wood fire almost).

I had the mic repaired by akg for £250 about 2 years ago and the problem did stop for a while (couldn't say how long) but now it has returned and i cannot afford to have it repaired again.

I'm not at all sure what the problem is myself but i remember the akg man saying that it was a loose screw (possiblly earth screw).

Anyway, any help would be hugely appreciated.

Thank you

Had the same problem. Check the ground (earth) is attached properly to the mic. This will cause the signal to be interrupted and can also cause a phasing problem. A lot of techs don't check that when you send them for repair

Amp crackling noise


Sounds like you could have a blown amp/speaker or you've got a short in your speaker lead. Typically, when there's not enough resistance on a wire is when you start getting the crackling noises.

Crackling noise and low volume


If the mic is a condensor you would need to have phantom power, or it will not work. Use a small mixer or externat power supply. We here at Pro Line Music Have small mixers that have phantom power. 215-736-8055

Samsung 46inch Slim DLP - No Power, buzzing/crackling


Well, you definetly right...... The driver of the ballast is busted, now the ballast is to weak to maintain on that lamp. I will recommend to stop trying to turn ON tv since this could damage the bulb by blowing it from inside. I will recommend to change ballast and the old lamp should work for a little while (since I am quite sure that this bad ballast is consumming faster that lamp). Or change lamp and ballast as well that shouldnt cost you more than 200 in booth things.
you can have the ballast from samsungpartsdotcom or i also had purchase some from discount-merchantdotcom (excellent service)

Excessive line crackling noise


The service manual is at www.akg.com/mediendatenbank2/psfile/datei/19/C4194055d1fa264a7.pdf. You will have to replace the wiring that goes to the cartridge through the gooseneck.

Crackling Noise


I can't take credit for this because on found on a review on Amazon.Com, but I tried it and it works!

"Another update, for everyone who is having the common crackling problem, if you open the clock radio there is a black disk on the bottom with a red and black wire coming out of it. This black disk is a component called a piezo disk. They are commonly used to make noise for buzzers in electronic devices, but appear to have no use whatsoever in this clock radio. If you cut the wires going to this disk, the crackling noise goes away. You can still use both buzzer and radio alarms. There doesn't appear to be any functionality lost other than the annoying crackling sound. Obviously cutting wires would probably void your warranty, but do you really want to try your luck with another RCA clock radio? Chances are the crackling will happen again with the replacement or it will be DOA."

If you can handle a screwdriver and a pair of scissors, you can easily tackle this project, don't be worried about it being too complex. 5 screws, a snip, and you are all set. Make sure the radio is unplugged of course.

Akai PT5598HD 55 in. Rear Projection


Something like this Id have someone who knows there way around electronics, a qualified tech or someone you trust really well :-) Does the crackling affect the TV picture at all ? My first guess would be dust and or dampness on the audio components. Sometimes this can conduct electricity across small pc chips and reak all sorts of havoc. I had an old Tomas electric organ once, and it actually caught fire because two speaker wires were rubbing together and eventually wore thru the insulation and shorted out, but it was also making alot of crackling and static noises. Try raising and lowering the volume low to high and high to low and see if the crackling noises gets worse. Some audio amplifiers put out quite a bit of power, so I wouldnt trust leaving the TV on without a fire extinguisher handy.
