If you've tried a different cable and it still doesn't work it probably the capsule.The capsule is available for $224.00 .If you send it in for repair it's only $200.00 and they give you a warranty.Contact Telex Communications @ 1 800 553 5992 and talk to a represenative and they will give you the info you need to send it in for repair.

First of all, open the microphone up and take a look at the wiring. Make sure that the XLR Wiring and the onboard wiring is soldered into the electrical system. Then, make sure that the grounding wire is not torn up. Also, check the wiring leading up to the diaphragm. Finally, make sure that the diaphragm is clean from some foam disintegration and that the plastic is not torn up completely. Aside from that, make sure that you are not using phase switch nor the phantom power. Although I haven't seen a dynamic wrecked by this, you never know..

Your mic may in fact be messed up, but for the love of Pete, turn off that Phantom Power!

My at4033a/sm is about 6 years old and only used 2 or three times .plugged it in...there is no sound


I have two words for you...Phantom Power.

Electrete condenser mic's MUST have phantom power to operate. Look for "Phantom Power" button on your Jackie (surely means Mackie) and try it again BUT turn volume down before engaging phantom power or testing mic.

When my phantom power is turned on . my condensing mic isnt working . at first i thought it was my mic . but then i got a new one and it still isnt working . what is the problem


HAve you tried a different lead? Try a friends mic that you know works on your mixer. Its usually a process of elimination. You substitute a known working one and see what happens. Is the little LED lighting up when its turned on?

The Electro Voice Cardinal Mic that I bought never worked right out of the box. I sent it back to the manufacturer while under warranty & they sent me back the mic - - - don't know if it's the same or...


That microphone is a condenser type of mic. It needs to have phantom power (48V) in order to operate. Phantom power is available on most, if not all, audio mixing consoles. Hope this helps.

How to hook up my Mackie 1202 VLZ PRO to my computer .....


i think your computer audio is not in shape to boost a great sound. specially when it is built-in sound in the motherboard of your computer. see your computer / motherboard manual's if the driver's you have AC '97 then you cannot really boost sound.coz it's a generic driver's for sound card. if try also to update your driver's (sound). by seeing the brand and the model of your motherboard or computer and go to manufacturer websites for update. after update if can't help, but you really need to boast a great sound then you can really buy a PCI sound card 6 channels or 24bit 5.1 or 24bit 7.1 f your sound system have are compatible with this. or has an interface like this - audio 5.1 and 7.1.
