Question about Sony ECM-55B Professional Microphone

ECM55b lav mic cable problem/question

A cat chewed through the cable on my Soncy ECM55b lav mic.

Is this something I can fix by simply cutting away the damaged portion and "splicing" the good cable back together? OR, are there multiple "channels" in the cable and it's absolutely not something an "amateur lav mic repairman" can fix?

My genuine thanks for your help.

There should be just one center conductor and a shield. It's tricky but, these can be spliced. Some just have two conductors, no shield -- this is easier to splice.

Mic cuts out and i have narrowed the problem to the mic clip receiver connection with the lav cord...how do i fix the connection shorting out?...other than getting a new part for it


It's hard to tell what would be the solution, until you figure out what is causing the short. It might be easier to send it to Shure for repairs.

This is probably interference in the wireless connection for the lavalier mic.
Try switching channels to find a clear one!
Or switch to a wired lav mic if that's practical.

How do I use 2 mics for the XL2 simultaneously?


Hi, on the left side of the camera you can set 'audio monitor'. Default is channel 1/2. You can choose to listen to 3/4 or 1/2 and 3/4 simultaneous.
In the menu of the cam you can set between 12 bit audio recording or 16 bit. 16 bit only records on channel 1/2 (the front mic). In 12 bit mode you can record audio on 4 channels.
hope this answers a bit of your question

My cat chewed the wiring on my Bose in-ear headphones


Of course. Just peal off the main isolation and connect wires according to color of their individual isolation. You can just twist them and wrap them with duct tape or solder them and wrap with duct tape.

My cat recently chewed trough 220 Volts stereo power cord (fortunately unplugged) and trough speakers cable too. They work perfectly again after quick fix while my room has become off-limit zone to my cat. ;-)

Better get your tomcat fixed or find him a girlfriend unless you'd like to risk him getting killed when he starts chewing some power cord.

Direct tv cable


ok if its only the rf cable and the ac cord yes you can do it your self.you have one cable out from the sat reciver going to the dish. Find an area that the pooch didnot chew through cut off the bad part of the wire. find the wire that goes to the tv set. if its the coax disconnect from the reciver on both sides and go to the store and buy a new cable (unless you have coax wire and know how to put on f fittings) also while your there buy a small extenstion for the other cable you cut. also your gonna need a a female barrel connector as we;ll as an rg6 type rf fitting for the end you cut. have the guy at the store explain to ya how to put on a f fitting. If the ac cord was chewed buy a simple cheap extenstion cord too. Go home and first put back on the cable you took off the output of the sat reciver and the other end to your tv set. then put on the f fitting the guy explained to ya how to put on and then install the barrel connector then the short extention wire to the other side of the barrel connector then the other end of the rxtenstion cable to the sat output. Now if the power cord is chewed im surprised the pooch is not fryed!!!lol Simply cut off the bad part take the extention cord and cut of the end you dont need take off about 1 and a 1/2 inches of the insulation on bothe parts(reciver and cord) twist together and tape separatly or use wire nuts on them . then you are good to go. BUt one more little thing are you using video cables between the tv and the sat. reciver?? well why didnt you say so LOL simplyu pull out of both ends and go to rat shack or something like them and buy an inexpensive pair of cables and remeber yellow is always video red is alway right audio and white is left audio Hope this clears things up for ya.!!!!
