CAD GXL2200 stopped working.

The first thing you can try is to unscrew the base by turning counter-clockwise, holding the body and screen together carefully. Then carefully slide the main body sleeve downward, and off. The rest of the mic is held together with a frame. You will be able to inspect all the internal wiring and solder joints for poor connections or cracks, The rear PC board is held on by two tiny Philips screws. Remove them and slowly lift the back PC board - it is connected by 3 short wires. This will just allow you to inspect the PC board for bad solder joints or cracks in the metal film. If that doesn't help, you may have to start removing and testing diodes and transistors etc.

BTW, on the front board you will find a tiny lo-cut switch I'll bet you didn't know you had.

Dropped my phon in water and now vioce box doesnt work. what to do?

I've done the same thing. The problem is that at the base of the phone is the microphone... It has a physical connection to the circuit boards analog-to-digital converter (your voice, analog, to digital, so it can send it over the wire).

Something has shorted out, or been damaged... Assuming you've given the device ample time to dry (3-4 days, best if left in RICE (yes RICE) in a bag)... and that it was clean water (no soap/salt/etc..) it may dry out and fix.

If said time has gone by, you need to take it to a local repair shop and have the microphone module replaced. This will often cost between $70-140 dollars. (I'm sorry for your loss).

What is the best way to run the mic on desktop

Your condensor mic requires special electrical handling usually reserved for proffesional audio equipment, not a PC. You will need two pieces of equipment, a short XLR cable and an adapter cable.
1) Behringer PS400 Ultra-Compact Phantom Power Supply.
This will supply the mic with necessary Phantom Power.
2) Rapco Horizon ISOBLOX Transformer Isolation 1:1 BLOX Device
This will isolate the Phantom Power from your computer, allowing it to work as necessary.
The adaptor connector cable you need will be a female XLR (with pins 1 and 3 shorted, pin 2 hot), through a cable connect to a 1/8" mini plug. They connect in that order with a short XLR cable between 1) and 2). .

I have the CAD ST100 microphone i need to know the power to supply this and pin outs.

The ST 100 microphone is a phantom powered unit. So, it receives its power by the same terminals used for its connection, not needing a separated power supply.

In general, most mixing consoles offer the option to feed the balanced microphones with 48 volt via a switch that can turn on or off its internal phantom power supply.

If you are going to use the ST100 microphone with a common amplifier or mixer, you will need to buy a separated phantom power supply. Searching the Internet for "phantom power supplies", you will find many available models and brands.

To know a little bit more about these power supplies, please check the following link:

Good luck!

When i plug it into my mixer it want recored do you think i need some sort of amp

This is a condenser mic that requires phantom power in order to work properly. Try turning on phantom power and get back to us if this fails to resolve the problem.

On the CAD GXL2200SP Where is the the power switch for the mic located at? Im not getting anything i have the phantom power and everything plugged up right. But i knw there has to be a power switch...

I don't believe the GXL2200 has a power switch directly on the microphone itself. Would you be able to tell me how you are supplying phantom power to the microphone?

I cant seem to be able to record anything on my microphone it is not picking up any sound. Why is that?

your CAD mic is a condensor mic and needs phantom power. If you don't have that it won't work. If you need phantom power you can get it from a small mixer. We here at proline carry some small multi channel mixers that have phantom power in them. call 215-736-8055

How I know that my cables are indeed balanced?

You can do this two ways. ! Try disassembling the XLR plugs and examining the wiring on both ends of the cable. Pin 1= ground/shield, Pin2= hot(+ve), Pin 3= cold(-ve). Pins 1 and 3 should not be connected to each other (bridged) in any way. Neither should 1 and 2. 2 Use a volt ohm meter to test from each pin on one end of the cable to each pin on the other end and note the reading. Pins 1 and 3 and pins 1 and 2 should again not be connected.Hope this helps.
