    I'm wondering if the ghost power source may have burnt out. I lent mine out and the borrower left the phantom turned on. Now it starts ok and when I hit record, the little green indicator lights don't flash and playback plays white noise.

External mic wont work

The A/V out jack is for output from the camera, not input to the camera. The camera has no way to accept sound from another device. You can record onto another device and then combine the soundtracks using video editing software on a computer, or even completely replace the camera's audio track. However this has to be done on a computer, not in the camera.

This implies that there is not enough current going to the device when running on battery (only back-light but no data) whereas running fine on AC means that the device board is most likely in a good operational condition.
I think maybe once a leaked worn battery which left forgotten inside battery compartment damaged the battery terminals or at least the wires connecting these terminals to the main board, i would recommend you to open and check on that.

Output mic not working HP Mini

First go to start menu, control panel, sound and audio devices, click the voice tab, and make sure the voice recording has something listed. If not see if you can change it to your MIC. If you get no options in this box you probably don't have the mic installed correctly. If everything appears to be ok in this go to your volume controls, click options, click properties, and make sure you have mic selected in playback sections and check the boxes in recording settings then click ok, one you do this make sure alll volumes are unmuted and turned up.

Sonar LE: no playback b/c "NO MIDI OUTPUT" selected

You have to go in to the Sonar configuration and select what the default MIDI and WAV input and output devices are. That is usually handled by the ASIO driver. In your case you would select the USB mic for input, and for output you need to select your sound card. For midi you need to configure the midi controllers and the software synth or soft instrument you are using.
If you need any more detailed help I need to know what version of Sonar LE it is and what sound card. I am guessing it detected the mic and just needs the output device configured as I mentioned.

How do i transfer from tascam DA-30MK11 to computer

From my personal experience, and assuming that you want to do this purely in digital format in order to preserve quality, you need to connect an RCA cable from the digital (SP/DIF) output of the DAT machine to an SP/DIF input of a sound card installed into your computer. Please note that the sound card on your computer must have digital input capability. Also the Digital input (sometimes labeled ‘CD digital’) must be selected in your software as part of the recording controls. To do this, open Volume Control, click ‘Options’, select ‘Properties’ and then select ‘Recording’ (as ‘Playback’ is usually enabled as default), and select the ‘digital’ input. Then using a reasonably good a sound editor or other recording software, start recording keeping in mind that you should configure the software to accept whatever audio data format is used on the DAT tape (i.e. 16 bits, 44.1KHz, or 48 KHz etc) I’m my case the software usually displays a box with these parameters before starting to record. Hope This helps. Good luck!

I need more tracks!

Your preamp needs to have 1/4" output jacks which channel all of the mic inputs into these two outs. This isn't typically how a mic preamp is set up however. They often will have 2 ADAT outs which output all the inputs in stereo or some other configuration. You may have one that can do this, but if not you'll probably end up needing some kind of basic external mixer which can handle all of the individual outs from your preamp through the mixer's inputs and then you'd run the main outputs from your mixer into the two inputs on your Tascam DP-01.

Input audio to PV-GS250 from an external mixer

Problem check list:

- Try another cable in the connection to rule out the cable
- Make sure the 1/8 plug goes in all the way
- Make sure you have it connected to proper outputs on the mixer (and that it's not a powered mixer!)
- Make sure you don't have the output volume up too loud on the mixer
