    This is normally because when the Mic is on, the mic is powering over something else that is already on that channel. When the mic is off, you are picking up something on the same channel. LIkely it is a TV station close by. Before you purchase these units you should use the frequency finder on their Website and make sure you get the best band for your area. Then when you get the unit do a scan and look for the band with the most free channels. Also make sure you did not mount this inside something (like a rack). it needs line of sight to the mic. If you have it inside something you need remote Att.

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.

SOURCE: AKG Perception 200 Mic stopped working. I use it

The simple thing to check would be to see if your 48V phantom power switch on your mixer is turned on. Sometimes there is an individual button to turn it on and off for each channel strip. Good Luck

Maybe you could find a local music store that repairs equipment to replace the grill. Sometimes you can find parts on websites like Ebay.

I have 2AKG UHFHT40ULTRA HIGH FREQUENCY handheld transmitter microphone , why when I turn them on they blink on and then notning ?


Okay, before going any further, let's just check....

  1. Along with your wireless mics, you have an AKG wireless receivers (e.g. WMS40 mini2), right?
  2. You've checked that mics and the receiver all work on the same frequency?
  3. You have connected both outputs from the WMS40 mini2 to individual mic channels on a mixing console?

Let's recap....

  • The AKG mics aren't going to work unless you have one of the matching receivers

  • The receiver has to be the correct type. This means if you want to run two mics at the same time, then you need a dual channel receiver (WMS40 mini2) otherwise they'll block each other. So, if you only have a single channel receiver (WMS40 mini) then you can only run one mic at a time, not two.

  • The mics and receiver have to be on the same frequency. They make it easy by colour coding the hand mics and the receiver. If the colours are different then they're working on different frequencies that are not compatible.


If you're good to go on all the above then the next stage is just the connection and set-up of the mics, receiver and mixer.

Since the mics are a pretty straightforward On/Off switch affair then there's not much to say there. Just make sure you maintain the correct distance for to ensure the wireless signal spreads out properly. It needs a minimum of 3m (about 10ft) distance between the mic and the receiver.

The receiver is straightforward too. It needs power, so make sure you plug in the mains adapter. The front LEDs give you the status of the signal. There's only two lights per channel, so it's easy to understand. RF OK confirms that the receiver is picking up the mic signal, so this one should be lit. AF CLIP let's you know when there's too much level from the singer/speaker. This could be that the receiver's volume control is set too high, or the singer/speaker is holding the mic too close for the volume they're producing.

The receiver's volume control needs to be adjusted fully counter clock-wise if connecting to a mixer by a balanced audio connection. If you're running in to the line level input, then the dial needs to be turned fully clock-wise.

The signal connection going to the desk should really be made with balanced leads. Jack to jack (TRS) or jack to 3 pin XLR will both maintain the noise suppression benefits of the balanced audio connection.

The rest is how you set up the mixer for the signal. Good luck.

Feedback 3-4 mtres from speakers


Feedback is caused by having the volume up too high or being too close to the speakers. Turn mic down a bit, feedback goes away.

Better speakers and mic will help.

I Have 2 recivers and 4 mics but can't use all 4 only 2 works


A wireless mic receiver will only reliably work with one mic at a time. For that reason, you need to have 4 receivers in order to use 4 mics simultaneously. You could switch back and forth between mics by setting them to the same frequency and turning them on and off, but they will not work reliably if they're both on at the same time.

I get little sound out of the microphone spots onm my DA-X10Pro. I have a karaoke THE SINGING MACHINE. When I use my karaokee machine mic plug in the mic works fine...but any voice into the mic...


The mics on the singing machine are very low end mics and MAY not work on your other unit. The Voco has very sensitvie inputs to use with "professional" type microphones. The Singing machine mics are going to be fairly high output and likely to overload the voco inputs. Procure some professional mics like Shure, AKG, Sennheiser or others and don't forget to use a balanced to unbalanced adapter or cable on the mics.

My akg perception 200 is not responding


Have you tried using a another XLR cable..,or are the other mics phantom powered condensers..ie try to locate if its a mic problem or the cable..2 other points are 1 - XLR leads for phantom mics need to be XLR to XLR male to Female plugs[ends] 2- is that often an XLR to XLR cable will be not soldered or wired right,so that the power [phantom power is not getting to the mic] so ensure you have a proper cable for that job...Sorry i can't be more specific but from reading your problem all these issues come to mind..If you have ruled all these things out,then it could be the capsule or loose joint or component in the mic which means contact AKG,pro audio services or find a DIY mic person to help..G luck!!

C 518 ML Isnt Working


Make sure that you are supplying phantom power. This mic requires it. Without phantom power, the mic will appear to be dead.

Let me know if that resolves the problem.

Extremely weak RF from AKG WMS 60 Hand Held Mic


I don't know what you've tried already to improve the signal level, so i'll list a few things that migt help.

It might help to put new batteries in (with the right voltage) You probably did that already.

There is a GAIN pot on the mic, in the battery compartment under the ring that is screwed onto the mic. When you adjust the GAIN, there will probably be better SN-ratio, but it does'nt change the RF signal

You could also adjust the antennas of the receiver, or try to set a different frequency (depends on which country you live in, in some countries it is illegal to change frequencies) or turn off the SQUELCH on the receiver

If this does'nt help, you could look for a user manual and try to find a solution in it.

There are some other solutions to improve RF signal, but those are quite expensive.

Utilizing two microphones


No, when you buy multiple wireless mics you have to select different channels per unit if you want to use them on the same stage.
