Question about Sony PCS-1 (PCS1) Video Conference

Open Question

Sony pcs-1 internatl audio path

On the setup page there are 3 settings for Echo Canceller.
1. Off
2. Internal
3. External

Does selection 3. External refer to an external Echo Canceller connected to the PCS?

Is the Internal Echo Canceller in the path between the mic and the audio input switch point? Or is the Internal Echo Canceller down stream of the Mic and Audio input ciruits?

Do you have an internal Block Diagram of the PCS-1 than you could email to me?

Thank You

SOURCE: microphone

For microphones with a 3.5 mm miniplug you can use a plug-in at the front of the camera. There is a little plastic cover over the hole under the word "MIC". I would call this an emergency solution because for most recording purposes you would want a microphone with XLR connectors.

This camcorder comes with an external shotgun condenser mic and XLR adaptor. If you have the operating instructions that come with the camera, you can turn to page 29 where there is a description of how to install the supplied external microphone.

When you slip the hot shoe plug of the XLR adaptor into the intelligent accessory shoe, the internal microphone is by-passed. In case you do not have the operating instructions you can download them from the Sony manual site.
http://esupport.sony.com/perl/select-system.pl

Put briefly, Attach the XLR adaptor to the accessory shoe on the top front of the camcorder and tighten the screw of the adaptor. Connect the hot shoe plug of the SLR adaptor to the intelligent accessory shoe of the camcorder, located behind the adaptor screw. When you push the hot shoe plug into place you should hear a click. Sometimes you have to use a little strength to get it correctly seated.

I hope this helps.

Hmmmm well I wonder if you aren't being a tad unfair, we must have more faith in professionals that we use to repair our equipment. IF you have taken it to an authorised service center that actually deals and repairs these items as a matter of course, i would take what is stated as gospel. Most often professionals do NOT need to hide behind fabrications of the truth?
In any event from what you say this indeed does seem OK, and is quite reasonable actually, in my shop it would cost about the dame if not slightly more! In reality that under $300.00 repair is quite low in the big scheme of things this is why, these days replacement is a better option, in nearly all cases unfortunately.
May I add that just because the customer "Thinks" that they have "Sussed" the problem in actuality may NOT be correct and often the most seemingly simplest problems are indeed quite bad. I say have more faith in the people you use> If you want satisfaction one MUST take any repair to the authorised service centers, usually one recommended by the manufacturer or agent, simply contact them and ask for a referral and go from there, as usual ONLY ever first ask for a "Quote".

Our new 6.0 Caller ID phones have an echo. Can you suggest a remedy? John Chalk johnchalk@hotmail.com


as per jonniewalker from one of his posts:

"it may be due to interference from electronics devices around you since its a cordless phone ,or your phone is not getting a complete connection, could be one cause,Please try these solutions when you experience echo sound :

- turn the volume down

- turn the "clarity booster" function on the phone

Follow these steps to turn on clarity booster

1) Press menu/del during talk time (while phone is in use).

2) Press ^/vol or vol/v to move the pointer to Clarity Boost, and then select Boost On and "B" appears on the display. To turn Off the Clarity Booster, repeat above step again. check the owners manual for a full description for your model of phone
*Please note: clarity booster turns off automatically at the end of each call.

- make sure the Echo Canceller Circuit (ECC) has been set properly

*The phone should have Echo Canceller Circuit (ECC) built in.

*This means the circuit will study the Voice Level & reduce/cut the echo automatically.

Follow these steps to set the ECC properly

1. Unplug the battery from the handset for a few seconds.

2. Re-plug the battery back into the handset.

3. Make a phone call & at the initial stage speak loudly into the mic. Please note: The ECC will learn at the initial stage only, so after these steps are followed, the ECC will start working properly.or
just a simple pwr cycle ( turning the phone off) can give you a fresh registratoin, this can improve the quality of the call. hope this helps pls do let me know"
