Make sure that you havent pulled one of the wires loose inside.. it is pretty easy to do.. I did it myself and didnt realize it until i had the same problem.. check where the mic. plugs into the radio first, if that is okay then it may be in your mic itself.. what kind of mic do you have it hooked up to

Intermittent LOUD shorting sound


I would prefer to hear it to be sure which one it is, but the four biggest causes of noise in a wireless system are: 1) Something hitting the mic (check to make sure the mic is free of clothing, other people, faces, etc.) 2) If the mic is a lavalier or in some way has a cable that plugs into the transmitter, something pulling on it could create a loud noise. Check to make sure it's in snug. 3) RF Interference with another mic or some other interference source. Try changing the frequency. 4) Something blocking the signal between the transmitter antenna and the receiver antenna. This is most likely to happen with a lavalier in someone's pocket or under clothing, and/or if the transmitter is far away from the receiver. The SLX series is okay for what it is, but part of why it's on the cheaper side is because of its limited distance. Unfortunately the only ways to alleviate this are to a) Reduce the distance, b) get a stronger wireless system, c) move the transmitter somewhere that the antenna is free, and d) invest in True Diversity antennae for the receiver.

I have the AKG wms 40 dual mini mic set with two wireless mics. When mic on ch 2 is in the off position, I get lots of static. Works perfectly fine when on. What do you think is the issue?


Channel 2 mic's receiver needs the Squelch adjusted. The squelch control mutes the receiver so that when the transmitter stops transmitting, erroneous noises are not picked up and amplified.

I have TX-SR503 onkyo receiver. I want to connect a microphone to it so that I can do a karaoke. The unit does not have a socket for microphone. It has a socket for phones. This socket does not appear...


The reason that jack doesn't work for a microphone is because it's a headphone jack. It's meant to send a signal out to headphones, and it doesn't work as an input. If the receiver doesn't have a microphone input jack (and it would be clearly labeled as such), you'll need to connect your mike through the auxiliary input. You may be able to connect with nothing more than an adapter to switch from the plug on the end of the mike cable to the RCA jacks on your receiver. The output level on some mikes may be high enough to drive the auxiliary input as-is. More likely, though, the mike will need a little boost to make it work with the receiver. The receiver needs a "line-level" input, which is higher than the output of most good-quality mikes. To get the mike up to line level you'll need a microphone preamp. There are many types from many sources, at a wide range of prices. Here's one I have used as an example.

You might also want to look for a small mixer like this. The mixer would let you combine your mike and music source into a single line-level output you could run to the receiver, and use the receiver just for the amplifier function.

Mic not working


On some mics, one of the lights will NOT turn on unless the battery is low. The mic is the transmitter, so I am not sure what you mean by it not lighting, but the transmitter is lighting?

Make sure the mic's freq. is within the scanned range of the receivers. Often the mics get mixed with other receivers and the resulting pair are incompatible.

The receiver should show if signal is being received. If it is, then the module in the microphone dynamic cartridge MIGHT have been damaged. If it is damaged, it has to be replaced.

Handheld transmitter doesn't work


Hi,

I don't know which type of microphone you are using.
You can check on the receiver if the RFsignal is present, some receivers do have a led-bar for it.
If the RF signal is there, you can check the microphone element. I'm sure you're microphone insn't in the mute function. Unscrew the microphonehead (if possible), look to the wiring, there must be 2 wires. If you touch one of those wires, you must get a hum out of your system.
If not, your transmitter has a problem and you have to visit a repairshop.

Good luck,
Gerard

Magic-Sing EG-18000 works, no sound


look and see if the RF light is coming on, if it is not then the transmitter (mic) is not on the same frequency as the receiver.

This may not be the solution for your problem, but I'm sure you'll like the way I'm thinking... ;- )

I also have an H700, and the clearance from my cheek to the microphone aperture is small--maybe two millimeters. I've had a couple of occasions during the summer when I was working outdoors in the heat, and my sweat bridged between the mike boom and my cheek--my callers told me I was unintelligible. With the sweat wiped away and the mike aperture cleared, all was well again.

If you're sweating during use, that may be your problem. If it's a continuous problem, maybe you have something mashed into the mike aperture...?
