Re: Mute on- no button?

The unit will display "Mute" for a myriad of reasons, but the most common seem to be that it is not receiving an RF signal from the microphone. Be sure that the batteries in the mic function properly, and that the mic is close enough to the receiver to get an initial signal.

Otherwise, check the menus - it doesn't appear to have a "hard" mute switch, but one of the "Soft" menus may have that information.

How do i sync my mic to my receiveri have a ew 100 g3 and after some kids were playing with it, I can't get any sound

Pressing the sync button whilst holding the mic close to the IR unit on the receiver should sync things back up. If this has already been done things to try next are as follows.

RF Mute. Press and release the power button. RF Mute should be displayed. Press the roccker switch and select RF mute OFF, press the rocker switch again.
Check in the advanced menu that the pilot tone is on on the handheld AND the receiver.

How do you take it off mute

Are we talking about squelch or mute? subset called 'X-TRA', which gives access to squelch settings.
Mute... three-position slider switch is used to power transmitter on/off, and has a middle position, which either acts as mute switch (when you switch from On to Mute) or switches the mic into programming mode if you start from the Off position.

My microphone does not work, the headphones work though...

Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7



In the Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate the SOUND PLAYBACK box and click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a tick (check-mark) in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.

Also make sure that the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.

Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here you need to SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).

NOTE if microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK.

That should be it.

However - if you cannot get enough volume on the microphone you may need to purchase a pre-amplifier to boost the signal strength before input to the computer.
