Question about Sennheiser EM100G2 RACK MOUNT G2 RECEIVER (B) EM100G2B Microphone

2 Answers

Sennheiser em100 g2 receiver passes major static to mixer

When the receiver is plugged into a mixer with its phantom power turned on, this unit produces major static on the channel; as soon as the phantom power is turned off, the signal is clear and the receiver works fine. All of my other receivers work fine with phantom power on (the phantom power is needed for stage mics and the mixer doesn't afford individual channel switches; either the phantom power is on for all channels or off). Is there an easy "fix" for this receiver that can't seem to handle the phantom power?

    Thanks, Pokethebear, for the suggestion. After much trial and error, I finally figured out the TS cable fix. I actually have three receivers with the problem. The TS cable fixed two of them; the third wouldn't even work with this fix, yet as soon as I turned off phantom power, that receiver worked fine... "Quick fix" aside, I'm trying to find out what "broke" or "fried" with these three receivers to make them unusable with phantom power (my other units work fine with it) so that I can make repairs and continue to use my XLR snakes without modifications.

    Hi. Thanks for this response. It keeps coming back every now and then, so I figured I'd ask a follow-up question: Where is this reset button? I didn't know there was one on these receivers... Thanks

Try to hit the reset button on the receiver. I did this and it has worked wonders.

This is a well known problem with the EW100 series that is easily solved.
You will need to run this reciever into a line input via a mono(TS) jack to jack lead. this will bypass the phantom power.
Make sure that you set the AV OUT to +18 in the reciever menu to get optimum level.
Phantom power is only present in the microphone inputs XLR3.
Hope this helps.

Can't get my Kenwood VR715 receiver to go into the Select a speaker system to see if speakers are turned on. Followed manual instructions and can't get in. Any Suggestions.


Try resetting the unit by unplugging the unit from the wall, then plugging it in again WHILST holding the power on/standby button in. This should reset the system. If not:

The front and centre speakers need bigger cable, so the 3 pair of connectors can take thick wires. The satellites need tulip plugs, because they need less power. c7118031-3f7f-4f21-84a9-bff8010fd3d2.png
