You need to connect your mic to an amplifier first and then to camera. Orherwise mic has not enouth power output. Zoom h4n might work but its expansive. Or u can buy wm-v1, wireless mic, it'll work just fine. Or buy mic with power already built in, like Rode VideoMic.
You are looking at the WRONG end of the guitar cable. You have a VERY unsafe guitar amplifier OR the mixer that is connected to that mic has an UNSAFE grounding condition.
If your guitar amp is an old one that has a two wire cord and a switch you change to reduce hum, take it in to have a three wire power cord installed IMMEDIATELY. Only plug into grounded receptacles. This is needed to reduce electrical noise and hum but MORE importantly is personel safety.
If the problem is with the mixer and the electrical service to the mixer, better get a professional in to analyze the problem before somebody is injured.
AS A START do this: VERIFY that ALL interconnected equipment INCLUDING your guitar amp iis powered from the same source or receptacle. This includes the venue power amps, mixer, any CD players, etc. Professionals run power back from the stage source to the mixer alongside their snake to avoid just the problem you are seeing. When they need more power at a venue, a power distribution box is used that conditions the building power and insures grounding.
Mike - it would probably help if you provide the name and model of the PA amplifier too... but even so:
It is doubtful that you'll be able to simply buy an "extension cord" to place between the end of the existing mic cord and the PA's mic jack. You could probably have a new, longer cord to replace the current short cord on your mic fairly easily. Since this would require soldering and use of special sheilded cables, you should probably have it done professionally. Just about any commercial or business radio shop should be able to swap the cord for one as long as you need.
Try a wireless mic system. If the problem persists I would return the unit to Numark. Me personally... I use the idj2 like a CDJ and have it lined into my DJ mixer. There is never an issue with microphones on my Peavey DJ mixer.
if you use original mic(boom mic), rec ch select (ch1.ch2 and ch1) if you choose ch1 it means only 1 channel you want to rec, ch1.ch2 means you select 1 in for ch1 and ch2.input level depend the volume of your input for original mic use mic if the sound around not loud, use mic att if the sound around to loud. +48v for mic original use on, if you use off mic don't work,for input 2 same with input 1.if the original mic don't work try to push the reset button. if don't work, i found that some cam, have bad contac inside the switches
The output level of the mic may be -50 dB or what is known as mic level. You will need to use the mic input on your console, or amplifier (whatever you are feeding the mic to).
Some mics are at line level because they have a built in pre-amp. Then you must use the line level input on your equipment that the mic is feeding.
If the mic is defective, there are 4 basic elements in a powered mic.
1) The mic diaphram unit, or pickup
2) The processor amplifier module
3) The power switch
4) The rear connector
Some mics have a matching transformer on the output section before the connector.
If you have a DVM and a knowledge of basic electronics, you can check for voltages and resistances to make sure all the connections are okay, and that there is power to the amplifier module. To check the diaphram and the signal path you will need an oscillocsope.
Normaly, a consumer quality mic is not supported for service. If you have a professional Sure, or Sony, or equivelent mic, it would be recomended to send it for factory service if it is not working. Even though they are simple in theory, they can be sort of complicated to service.
