The mic requires phantom power from the mixer. Contact the mixer manufacturer to find out how to turn on phantom power.

When install a battery the mic stats but goes off before battery fully installed


The battery has to generate quite a bit of power to energise the plates in a condenser mic. So wasting energy by powering an LED when it's not really needed is a bad idea. The light 'blinks' to confirm that you switched it properly. After that, it will only blink again when you move the power switch to OFF unless there's some battery warning indication built in.

As for the mic not working; most of the time this is down to poor quality or broken cables; or incorrect connections; or the wrong settings on the receiver or mixing console.

You've obviously checked battery strength, battery connection and volume settings for the dead mic...does the green transmit (RF) LED light when you turn the mic on? Does the red audio (AF) LED light when you talk into the mic? Best solution....buy a better quality wireless system ($85 wireless?!? ...no thanks).

You should be using XLR to XLR cable from the ART to the Alpha. You need to have recording software and the driver for the Alpha correctely loaded. Verify that in the PC when you go to the control panel in Windows and click on the "Sounds and Devices Icon that clicking on the VOICE tab that the Alpha is listed as the default audio for both in and out.

I have a shure microflex mic condencer 150 the led does not work and the mic is dead. Does the mic need a battery if so how do you instal it.


Try using a mixing console with phantom power ( + 48 ). A condenser mic needs 48 volts to operate. The led should light when the XLR microphone cable is connected to a console with phantom power.

i am having this trouble as well. The ics was my thought too, but I think it is in the modulation circuit somewhere. another article i read said to check this. "Look for the collector of TR-23, you should read about 4.5 V with a dead key. If you find that this voltage is not present, check on the opposite side of R-120 for 6.5V. Most likely this voltage will not be present; if this is the case, C18 has shorted and needs to be replaced. This is a 330uf, 10V electrolytic capacitor beside L31. To prevent "future" problems, replace with a 16V unit." As of yet, i havent gotten that far. note this is from the cobra 2000, but they are very much alike. you might cross check the resistor capacitor numbers though. btw, isnt the mb3756 the pll ic?
