Sony Wireless Mic (Transmitter) UTX-B1

Transmitter and Receiver of Sony Wireless Mic set stored identically and used very infrequently (non-professional). Error Message "no tone" received. Repairer disassembled both to discover circuit board of transmitter with corrosion. Receiver shows no evidence of environmental degradation. Both stored very securely (pelican case) and neither been out of possession or eyesight of owner. Transmitter has never been "dropped in a beverage" or "immersed in the pool". Any explanation proferred as to why one shows deterioration and the other does not? Any history of factory induced production quality variability?

Re: Sony Wireless Mic (Transmitter) UTX-B1

Sounds like some type of manufacturer's flux problem. As an ex-Sony pro dealer we saw something like this years ago. You might want to contact Sony support (industrial or broadcast, not consumer) and see if there is a technical bulletin out on this problem.

I have the AKG wms 40 dual mini mic set with two wireless mics. When mic on ch 2 is in the off position, I get lots of static. Works perfectly fine when on. What do you think is the issue?

Channel 2 mic's receiver needs the Squelch adjusted. The squelch control mutes the receiver so that when the transmitter stops transmitting, erroneous noises are not picked up and amplified.

I got a new mic and I cant get it to sync to my reciver it is a PGX4 and the mic is a PGX2

The mic is probably in a different frequency band than the receiver. Look at the stickers on the receiver and the mic to make certain they operate in the same frequency range.

Vocals disappear in parts using this mic

It is very common to have the squelch on the receiver set at full or much too high. With the audio output unplugged or at least turned all the way down, and with the transmitter turned off, locate the squelch control - you may need a screwdriver depending on which model of receiver you have. Turn the squelch control counter-clockwise until the TX light turns on, then turn it back up just past the point where it turns back off.
If you turn it all the way down and the TX light doesn't come on, that's okay. If you get blasts of noise occasionally when the transmitter is turned off, then set the squelch a little (only a little) higher until it stops.

Not transmitting through both speakers properly

The UTX-B1 input is not a stereo jack, and the receiver output is also not a stereo jack. Only the receiver Headphone/Monitor jack is stereo.

Not sure if you are sending stereo signals from or to the camcorder. But you can try mono-to-stereo adapter.

Hope it helps!
