The radio needs to be set to a specific station (its listed on the packaging) What the microphone essentially does is override the broadcast on that frequency and allows you to hear yourself. Its the same principal as the '80's classic "Mr. Microphone".

Thank you for your question. The microphone broadcasts to an FM radio at 100.1 MHZ. I would suggest you tune your radio to 100.1 MHZ. While holding down the microphones Vox button, take a small screwdriver and slowly adjust a small screw by the battery compartment on the microphone until you hear your voice over the radio. Adjusting the screw changes the transmit frequency on the microphone.
I hope this helps. I would appreciate your taking a second to rate my assistance below this posting. I look forward to hearing your voice over the radio as you work your way to the top of the music charts! :0)
Each microphone has a different FM Freq. If you can not find a Freq there is a very small hole in the mic near the Mic switch. You will need a jewlers screwdriver to make a freq. adjustment. Hold down the applause button while very close to your FM radio. Use manual tuning on your FM radio until you hear applause. If there is a local station playing on the Freq you can insert the jewelers screwdriver into the small hole and change the FM Freq for the Mic. You only need to make "fractional adjustments" to change the Freq. setting. Once you make a mic freq. adjustment change the radio freq SLIGHTLY up and down until you hear the applause.
This should get anyone going that is having difficulty with this microphone.
FM 99.7 works best.... However if you have a local FM station using that freq your out of luck UNLESS your handy with a Jewelers screwdriver. Calling tech support will get you a "sorry" but there is nothing we can do. So if you are one of the unlucky ones with a Local 99.7 FM station here is what you can do.
1) Find a dead spot on the FM radio band either at the very low end or high end of the range. You should hear just fuzz (white noise) on your radio. However, on many newer FM tuners if there is no station broadcast there is nothing but silence.
2) Put batteries in the microphone.
3) Get a really really tiny flat head (Jewelers)screwdriver just like the kind in those eye glass kits they sell at the grocery store.
4) Sit right in front of the radio
5) Insert the screwdriver into the tiny hole in the microphone and tune the microphone until the radio goes quiet (no fuzz sound). Or.... you can keep pressing S to hear a beat and the beat is acutally heard through the speakers.
The hole is located just to the left of the screw that you undid to get at the battery compartment, but it's off center. Inside this hole is a small tuning screw. Slowly, slowly, SLOWLY turn the screw driver until you here a change or interruption in the fuzz sound on the radio speakers. This will indicate you found a compatible frequency. Then even slower - tune back to that "notch" until you hear nothing but silence on the radio. Test it by pressing the applause button "A" or by pressing the mic "M" button and talking.
There are multiple places on the FM dial that will "work" as you tune the little screw but you should have already manually selected where (the FM freq) you want to use your mic.
Once it's working it ain't perfect. I doubt you'd do a serious performance on it, but the kids love it.
The mic quality is not top notch for sure.
you need to have it on and tap it while you turn the tuning knob on the radio until you come accros the station that will pick it up, this may take a while and most times it's on both the AM and FM bands so try both.
If you can't take them back to the store, call the company. Just look on the box for the name and look up the number online. If they won't replace your items or sometimes they'll send you coupons to replace the item ... if they won't help you, sign a complaint with the Better Business Bureau (bbb.org).
My solution - dont buy product associated with Hannah Montana -
I have never had a good experience with products with her name on it or direct dealings with the singer herself - she and her product pyramid have done nothing but constantly disappoint my daughter and myself.
