When you say working in some places but not others, do you mean it works on some channels but not others?

I'm sure you are aware that condensers will not work without phantom power. I'd suggest trying your mic through a different system (if there are non available try your local music venue, if you ask the engineer nicely I'm sure he'll let you test it on their rig). Also try a diffenent condenser on all channels of your mixer, and also try a dynamic mic as well just for thoroughness.

I can't really give you an answer to this unless you've tested with other equipment to identify which part of your rig is faulty.

To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if it was your mixer, I've always found behringer gear to be pretty crap quality.

Also it might be a stupid question but have you tried using a different cable?

SOURCE: Sennheiser em100 g2 receiver passes major static to mixer

This is a well known problem with the EW100 series that is easily solved.
You will need to run this reciever into a line input via a mono(TS) jack to jack lead. this will bypass the phantom power.
Make sure that you set the AV OUT to +18 in the reciever menu to get optimum level.
Phantom power is only present in the microphone inputs XLR3.
Hope this helps.

What is the likely cause of the phantom power of a samson 900 mixer to go bad?


The phantom power is used for condenser mics. MAKE SURE you do not plug in other mics or devices that do NOT have balanced, isolated outputs as they will short out the phantom power to others.

You should find between 15 and 48 volts between BOTH pins 2 and 3 of each mic connector when measured to pin 1 of the connector. There is about 6K ohms impedance from the phantom supply to pins 2 and 3.

IF you have an accident and connected high voltage to pin 2 or 3 it COULD back up and blow the bypass cap for the 48 volts.

Please note: ALWAYS power ANY interconnected equipment from teh SAME receptacle to avoid damage due to ground bounce in the event of a fault in a piece of equipment.

You need power from the transmitter to power this mic. See your mics specs to determine if it needs "Phantom Power"
Perhaps the transmitter doesn't supply power. Condenser mics may not work. Stay with the dynamic type. IMHO

You Samson microphone requires phantom power to operate. PC's don't have phantom power. You need to run your mic thru a mixer that has phantom power.

How to make my co3 mic work


You will need a pre amp that supplies whats called phantom power which is power that feeds the mic .. This will come from either mixers [small cheap ones..but check it has XLR mic input with phantom power] or from a stand alone pre amp or audio interfaces with built in inputs for mics with phantom power.. Also you will need an XLR mic lead..Buy a good one with neutrik plugs or similar..

Condenser microphones need phantom power (48V) to operate. Some condenser mics use batteries to work and get around using phantom power from an audio mixer. hope this helps

I have a shure microflex mic condencer 150 the led does not work and the mic is dead. Does the mic need a battery if so how do you instal it.


Try using a mixing console with phantom power ( + 48 ). A condenser mic needs 48 volts to operate. The led should light when the XLR microphone cable is connected to a console with phantom power.

Samson CO2 Pencil microphones


The CO2 is a condenser mic (also called capacitor mic), and as such, requires phantom power to operate. Ensure that your system is providing phantom power to the microphone, usually accomplished by flipping a switch near your mic input on your sound board.

Connecting samson co2


The Samson CO2 is a condenser (also called capacitor) mic, and thus requires phantom power to operate. In order to apply phantom power, you must have a board capable of handling an XLR connection, and supply phantom power. Usually there is a switch located near the XLR-input jack on your board - if you post your sound board type, more help can be given.
