Trying to use a microphone but not sure how to hook it up

I just bought a microphone and the only hole that I can put it in is the phone one but someone told me that is only for headphones. Do you know if I can use that imput hole with a converter or something?

"phone" on a reciever or radio means it is for headphones only, there is no converter that will or can change the internal output circuit of a radio , reciever or" phone"( headphone ) output on a output made only for headphones or ( an output circuit into an input circuit )
recievers or radios the have a microphone input will be labled "mic.L" or "mic.R" or just "mic"

No because the mic is a signel in device and the headphone jack is a signal out jack! meaning if you plug the mic into it the mic will act as a speaker and music will come out of it and ruin it!
I would buy an adapter at radio shack and plug it into the phono input on the back of unit! and if you dont have a phono input you will need to buy a small pre-amp and plug it into the aux or tape input!
That will work!
Please rate my answer!
Thank You!

Well, 1st thing is you've bought one of the worst wireless mic's on the planet BUT if you insist on "hooking it up" here goes....

1. Mic connected and transmitter (with new battery) turned on.
2. With volume down, plug receiver directly into amplifier/PA 1/4" input.
3. Talk into mic and slowly raise volume of amplification system.
4. READ YOUR OWNERS MANUAL!!!

I am trying to hook the mic up to my computer in the location for microphones and it is not working. i also tried via my tv and stereo system. it will work to receive sounds if plugged into the phones


Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

How do I know if my toshiba laptop has a built in microphone


Almost all laptops do have a microphone now. It is behind a TINY hole, usually up near where a webcam is located. If you have the camera, you for sure have the mic.

Connection problem with rode ntg-2


If you look at the side of the microphone at that end there should be a small hole. Using long nose pliers grasp one of the pins and pull the jack all the way out to make sure that no wires have broken loose. Look on the side of this (plastic?) piece and you will notice a small screw with a slot in it. Using the pliers again, insert the piece back into the microphone gently and line the screw up with the hole. There should be only one way to do this as the piece has a protrusion that guides it down a slot in the microphone. Once the screw is lined up use a small enough flat blade screw driver to fit the hole. Screw the screw out, Yes Out. What this does is secure thje plug in place and provide a ground to the microphone. Please let me know how you make out.

Microphone


Inspect your computer to see if has a hole somewhere that might look like a microphone. If you want to find out for sure open up your windows sound recorder from Start - Program - Accesories - Entertainment. Hit the record button and talk or yell something if you would like. You should see recorded sound wave in the middle of your sound recorder. If you do not see the recorded waves this might mean that your microphone is turned off. To turn it on just Double click on the little speaker icon on your taskbar at the bottom right of your screen. The volume control window will open. Click on options then properties. Next check the small round recording button. Now make sure the microphone box is checked then click ok. Now a window will open that will show your microphone recording level. Move the slider up about half way and make sure to check the small "Select" box near the bottom of the slider. Open up sound recorder and try to record again. If this does not work you probably do not have a built in microphone. There are some very cheap external mics on the market that sound very good. If you are doing any serius recording you may want to invest in a USB microphone. The USB mic should come with it's own software and setup should be pretty simple. I hope I have been helpful.
