Sennheiser md 42 microphone not being picked up on camcorder help please.


This would require a special cable to work. The mic is MONOAURAL with BALANCED output and the camera is STEREO input. This means a special cable is needed and you would probably have to make it yourself as I haven't seen one on the market.Pin 2 of the XLR of the mic would go to BOTH the tip and ring of the plug into the camera. Both pins 1 and 3 of the XLR at the mic would tie to the sleeve of the plug to the camera. If you tried an XLR to 1/8 adapter, no audio would be heard other than from the buillt in mic.

Hi there, I've just bought an Acer notebook ASPIRE 5750, windows 7 home office. Everything is ok, but softwares like speech recognition, skype and google talk, don't recognize my microphone...


You may have to disable the onboard microphone to use the connected hardware.
Realtek is very picky, same goes with speakers connected to the back and front at the same time, no sound. Disable the one you are not using.

Where do I plug in the microphone/headset


The green jack from your headset has to be connected at the rear panel of the monitor, just beside the VGA cable. This is for feeding the audio to your headphones. For more details take a look at this picture:
15d8e9b.jpg
The red (orange) jack from your headset (this one is for the microphone) has to be connected at the back of the pc tower, at the red jack, marked as microphone input. In case you need to extend this jack you may use an extension cable like this. In case you don't need the microphone option (if for example you need just the headphones from the set in order to hear audio, movies e.t.c.) you don't need to connect the microphone jack.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Microphone does not pick up any sound


Your mike requires a 48 volt phantom power supply which your preamp should be supplying. The most commonly overlooked problem is the cable. It must be wired for a balanced connection for phantom power to work correctly. 1=ground/shield, 2=hot(ve) and 3=cold(ve). None of these connections should be bridged to another and need to be kept separate to maintain a balanced connection. You will need to eliminate the preamp and mike cable as sources of the problem in order to determine if the mike is working correctly. You need to test this combination with a volt /ohm meter. If you don't know how to do this you should take it to the dealer you bought it from for testing or advice.

I just bought a GE Portable headset with detachable MIC


I had the same problem, but fixed it. All you have to do is:
(I have a Dell Laptop)
1. Go to the control panel
2. Go to the sounds, speech and audio devices
3. You are supposed to see the icon that belongs to your sound card (Mine is SigmaTel Audio), click on it
4. Activate the port where the microphone is connected, close
5. Configure your microphone as you normally would
6. It should work
