Question about Beach Tek BeachTek DXA-FX, FX1 XLR Adapter for Sony HDR-FX1 HDV Camcorder

Open Question

Audio Not Clean

Hey Guys,
I am having a problem getting optimal sound using the DXA-FX for my Sony HDR-FX1.
I have followed the directions from the manual for the DXA-FX from BeachTek. On my camera I have the audio switch on MANUAL and set to "3". Internally, I have the mic set to EXTERNAL.
My 2 Sennhesirer EW 100's systems are set up at different frequencies and are connected with an XLR connection on the DXA-FX. I have the limiters turned on both units from the back of the DXA-FX1.
I do get audio from both and it is close to balanced but there appears to be a lot of extra "noise" and does not have the clean sound I get when I use just 1 of the Sennheiser units with the camera set to AUTO and LINE IN.
Is there a setting I am missing? Please help, I have a shoot this week and we need to interview 2 people at once which is why my client purchased this equipment.

I have a Sony HDR FX-1 and is showing this error E:61:10 Quote to repair nearly 500 British pounds Any ideas?

E:61:10 is a lens error. Unfortunately, this needs to be repaired by an experienced technician. The only thing that you can try to do yourself is try bumping the camcorder with the palm of your hand near the lens. Try it on the top, sides, and bottom of lens. Sometimes this will work temporarily. If the camcorder was hit or jostled very hard, something in the lens may have moved. The other possibility is that the lens is not making good connection to the main pcb. If the bumping works, I would think it is a connection issue.

Hope this helps.

Hello Sir,
Well this sound like the shutter may be trapped, either by a knock or heat on the system, maybe you could take it to camera shop and let them see.

Problems recording from soundesk


The signal from a sounddesk is a line signal. On the bottom of your Bechtek are 3 dip switches. You have to set switch 1 and 3 to line level. That should work.
