Re: Mike wont work

PRA-H7A is a super-cardioid back electret condenser microphone, therefore turn on the PHANTOM POWER before you try to use it again.

I dented the metal grill cover under the windscreen and need to replace it.

This is a cosmetic part, (for looks only), and does not affect the use of the mike; unless it is really dented in and is pressing on the pick up element. Some are removeable and they can be straightened from the inside. If the mike works, just leave the wind screen on. If the mike is dead; the same thing that dented the grill, damaged the pick up element or the wiring to it.

Mic has a small bus mixer hook up it reads on the level of the mixer but no sound comes out of the speakers?

So the mike works but the interface from the microphone amp to the subsequent unnamed electronics isn't working or set up right.

We might want to look at the mixer or beyond for the solution.

I got a cable to hook my MXL 990 condenser microphone to my computer and i get no sound. it wont record!!!!!!!!! its a 1/4 male to #-pin XLR female cable

Professional condensor type mikes require a phantom power source to work. That will be a balanced (read XLR) connection from source to preamp and the preamp must be capable of supplying the power. These units cannot be used in an unbalanced circuit (like 1/4" or computer mini-pin). Your best bet for the setup would be to get an external power supply box that can also convert the signal from balanced to unbalanced. That would be what the mike plugs into and then that plugs into the computer. You're probably looking at about 50-100 for even a cheap one that will work well. Companies like Sweetwater and B&H should be able to steer you toward a decent basic unit. If you happen to have a mixer (which is why you bought the good mike) then it may have phantom power for some of its mike inputs.

Mic won't work at all

Check if U have Phantom Power on your mixer.
If not, change either mike or mixer.

Can I modify this mike to a regular condenser mike?

Sorry, the AMS microphones cannot be modified to work with a normal mixer.

Wont turn on

Is the Mike an electret? Does it need a battery to work. If so try changing it or making sure it's inserted correctly. Does the on off switch feel sloppy and loose? If so it could need looking at. Also the wire for mics tends to take a beating. Check the connections on the plug end and make sure it's all connected OK. Don't forget a fracture can take place halfway along the cable in which case you'll need a multimeter. It will tell you if it's fractured but not exactly where the fracture is. If the mike gets it's voltage from the mixer or amplifier have you switched the phantom power on? If there's a plug and socket on the end of the mic also check that for fractures and again use the multimeter to measure continuity from one end to the other. Usually the braid is OK but check all wires anyway.

My mike just stopped working, dead?

The first thing to check is the phantom power. Make sure it is there. The mic will appear dead without the power present.

Entertech mic ed-9000--Mic stopped working

Could be the wiring in the RCA cable.
Swinging mike to and fro can wear through the power wiring inside the cable.
I'm on my 3rd cable.
Manufacturers have said they recognise this is a common fault with product but it seems they are not taking any steps to rectify.
I found that using the mike with batteries sometimes works.
If you get a new cable may be a good idea to reinforce the top 12 - 18 inches of the cable to avoid same problem in future.
