If your cable has no spring pin, it is likely not to stay connected. If you notice on your mic cable, there is a hole as follows.

The arrow is where the whole is on the outside of the mic. This is where the pin on the cable clicks firmly into place. If your cable doesn't have a small pin, then it is time to find a new cable.

I have connected my laptop to my element tv via vga cord;sound is comin frm laptop..want the sound frm TV; THEN, I have a headset/microphone ... can I connect my headset/microphone to the TV?


If you need to get sound from your TV, you should have a sound input socket in your TV. If you have that you can connect an audio cable from your sound sound socket to your TV.
The second option is that your laptop and your TV should have HDMI ports. If its there, you can use an HDMI cable(instead of VGA cable)to connect the two. With HDMI cable, you will get both video and audio through that single cable.

If you need more help please let me know

How do I connect my CAD GXL2200 mic to my apple laptop?


You need a USB interface such as an M-Audio M-Track and a standard XLR male to female audio cable.

You use the cable to connect the microphone to the interface using the XLR cable, then you plug the USB cable on the interface to a USB port on your laptop. Finally, you go to System Preferences - Sound - Input and select the USB interface as the input source.

Depending on the software you you use for recording sound (I use Sound Studio from Felt Tip Software) you may need to go into the Preferences for the program and select the USB interface.

Microphone not working


Hello Weber913,
Below are steps to troubleshoot and resolve your microphone issues. If you have any further questions you can email at my email address listed below.

Test the Microphone

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Sound Recorder.
    In Windows XP, you will need to select Multimedia (or Entertainment).
  2. Click the Record button, and speak into the microphone.
    The green waveform should react to your voice.
  3. To end the recording, click Stop.
  4. To hear your recording, click the Play button.

Check physical connections

  1. Verify that the microphone is connected to the red microphone jack for the sound card on the back of the computer and not the microphone jack for the modem. The microphone will not record if it is connected to the Mic jack on the modem.
  2. Test the microphone on another computer using Sound Recorder as in Step 1.

Check the volume control and mute properties.

Double-click the Speaker icon in the System Tray.

  1. Make sure the Volume Controls (or Master Out controls) are at least midway on all levels.
  2. Make sure there are no checks in the Mute boxes.
  3. Test the microphone using Sound Recorder as in Step 1.

Set Recording to Mic/Microphone

  1. Double-click the Speaker icon in the System Tray
  2. Click Options in the menu at the top of the window.
  3. Click Properties.
  4. Choose Recording in the Adjust Volume For section. Do not choose Playback in the Adjust Volume for section. Choosing Playback in conjunction with unmuting the mic may cause loud feedback during recordings.
  5. Ensure that Mic/Microphone has a checkmark next to it.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Test the microphone using Sound Recorder as in Step 1.

Reinstall Sound, Video and Game Controller Drivers

  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Double-click System and then click the Device Manager tab.
  3. Click the plus (+) sign next to Sound, Video and Game Controllers.
  4. Click each entry one at a time and then click Remove, repeating the steps until the Sound, Video and Game Controllers category is removed.
  5. Close all open windows.
  6. Reboot the computer.
    The sound card will be detected and you will be prompted to reinstall its drivers.
  7. Test the microphone using Sound Recorder as in Step 1.
Thank You,

How to connect it ?


Instructions
    • 1

      Place your mixer in a location that will allow you to hear the sound coming from the speakers clearly. The best placement is opposite the speakers, centered between the left and right pair. Connect the power supply to your mixer.

    • 2

      Connect the female end of an XLR cable to a microphone. Run the other end of the cable to your mixing board. Plug the male end into the "Mic" port of an open channel. These channels provide the preamps that will shape the sound characteristics of the microphone signal, processing them for output. Repeat the process for each microphone in your rig


    • 3

      Connect one end of a balanced 1/4-inch cable to the left channel jack labeled "L" found on the "Main Out" panel. Connect another cable to the right channel jack with the "R" label. Connect the opposite end of each cable to the matching left and right inputs on you amplifier.

    • 4

      Power on your mixer and amplifier. Test each microphone connected to the mixer for output.

    • 5

      Adjust the volume of each microphone channel to create a balanced mix. Use the "EQ" knobs to shape the tone and cut out frequencies that are causing squeal and feedback.

My mic has a faint sound


Have you tried other microphones in this circuit or connected the microphone to another cable. If the problem stays with the microphone go to shure.com, look under support to find information on repair. If the problem does not go with the microphone you have another problem. Of course it could simply be indicating the gain has been turned down on the sound system.

My microphones don't connect to the base system. I have a ET 18K system from Magic Sing. When I power up the base, I get the audio and video. When I try to power up the microphones, the green lights to...


hey all, althought the manual says to hold down '0' along with the power button, which didt work.

For me it worked by holding '2' then turning on the mic (pressing the power button).

So try all the numbers.

I have a compaq MVS540 monitor. It has the microphone incorporated. I can listen what others talk to me but I am not listened by others. I am not expert at all.


You need to plug in a connecting cable from the microphone output jack on the rear of the monitor to the computer's microphone input jack. This is the same type of cable used to connect a speaker system to the audio output jack.

If the cable is already connected, be sure your microphone is not muted. Verify the settings through the Control Panel "Sounds" application.
