Transmission distance problem on Sennheiser G2 wireless

Hello there, I have this transmission distance problem on a couple of my EW series wireless sets.It seems that their transmission effectivity now is just a on a line of sight.  If the transmitter  gets blocked by a wall or even a light stand the transmission gets intermittent or cut. What seems to be the problem and how do I repair this.  Does this need freq. calibration? Thanks. -Mike

I regularly use G2 ew100+300 systems, which have a manual squelch adjustment on the reciever. Squelch is difficult to explain but here we go: a squelch adjustment gives you the options LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH these settings effect transmission distance and interference rejection. for example: a HIGH squelch is less prone to interference but has a shorter transmittion distance. A LOW squelch is more prone to interferance but allows for a longer transmission distance. For most applications, a MID squelch is fine. If this does not help- the next option would be to swap arials between units and see if the problem moves. The G2 series are a 30mw transmittion which has an effective range of about 50m
hope this helps.

Issue more complicated than originally thought!


This isn't a solution. But after I've gotten into my microphone with the same issue using a torx screwdriver I found that I (Electrical Engineer) don't have the proper equipment to fix the issue. Roughly 100 dollars (Flat rate) and a send off to Sennheiser is your best bet.

It appears the power on/off button has been pushed in or broken off on a wireless EW 100 G2 microphone. ID # 90913 Serial# 111619


Hi,

Often the rubber button is pushed into the microphone.
You can easily disasemble the unit.
Just open the batterycase, you will find some small torx screws.

Powers up for a second and then shuts itself off. Checked batteries.


Hi,

You can check your powerswitch.
Sometimes they are sticky and are "hanging".

Sennheiser ew 100 g2 handheld microphone loose coil in capsule?


I had a similar problem with a sure sm 57 that I used on a guitar amp. I don't know if this is the correct fix but it worked for me. I took thin strips of paper to use as spacers and placed them evenly around the coil. I used a hot melt glue gun and placed 3 small drops around the edge of the coil. Remove the spacers and the coil should be secure.

On/off button fell off Sennheiser wireless mic


This is quite common with G2's, and really annoying!
If you are lucky, 50% of the time the red button is pushed inside the mic.
You need to remove the bottom section:
- open the battery compartment
- there should be 3 star-bit screws around the outside (remove)
- pull the bottom of the mic off

If the red button is not inside, they are available as a spare part from Sennheiser dealers.

Be carefull when putting the mic back together, it needs to line up correctly with the internal guides, forcing the base back on could damage the ribbon cable. when the line-up is correct it slides on very easily.

Best of luck.

Frequency clash


There are different frequencies available and being used in each location.

To get a basic idea of which frequencies are available in your area, try this online tool:
http://www.sennheiserusa.com/findfrequency/
or use the literature provided with the Sennheiser gear (usually a useful chart comes with the wireless gear).

Also, remember that your transmitting frequencies need to be spaced apart a minimum of .400 MHz (or 400 kHz).

Frequency selection shouldn't cause feedback problems though. If you select a frequency for a mic that a local TV station is already using to broadcast, it will cause RF Interference (Radio Frequency). You'll probably hear static noises, pops, or since your Sennheiser has a Squelch feature, just drop-outs in audio.

So first consult the available charts to find a set of frequencies that should be available in your area. Then, if one of your mics is experiencing such an issue, try moving it .400 MHz to the nearest unused frequency and see if the RFI goes away. Repeat until the RFI no longer manifests.
