Question about Rode NT4 Professional Microphone
I am having to return my Rode NT4 which has already been replaced once for the same reason. Brand new battery installed for use on second occasion; interview etc. recorded - only to find nothing at the end.
On switching on the power l ight - it dies almost instantly. I can't use the mic now and am very reluctant to get the same model.
Does this like a sound familiar problem to anyone? On the two occasions I've used the mic with a Marantz 670 solid state recorder. I can't stress how much care I've taken with this mic. It comes with its own 'suit of armour' case. I've treated it like a newborn baby.
Baffled and horrified.
I have just bought an NT4 and looking through the manual I remember reading that the LED will light up only briefly when the mic is turned on. This indicates that battery power is OK! If the LED continues to be on it is an indication of poor batterypower. Kind of backwards, but that's what it's supposed to do. So... Maybe you're alright?
