Question about Sony ECM719 Consumer Microphone

1 Answer

Sony ecm 719 doesn't aseem to be working properly

I bought a stereo sony ecm719 off ebay.
When I connected it to my computer and recorded some music from speakers near the computer I noticed it was not good quality and sounded really strange. The computer also seems to indicate that the mic recorded in mono. I did not get a battery with the mic so have bought one and will try this to see if it changes the problem.
Should this mic without plug in power and without a battery still be able to pick up something or nothing.
I am worried cos I need the mic for a concert in 2 weeks and may not be able to get it replaced.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi kollydogg

The mic you purchased is a condenser type that requires either a battery(you now have), or a sony power supply. Without it, I would expect it to not do much at all. The specs look ok on it. Good for bootlegging concerts :)

New noise


sounds like a ground issue to me. that sounds like either 60 cycle hum, or a loose or broken ground. You can probably do an ohmmeter check, first, with no power, and see if you have continuity. That's not unusual for mikes of the seniority of your equipment.

Hi, I bought a sony ecm mic brand new, but whenever i switch it on, the red light comes on for a fraction of a second and then goes off, and i cannot record with it. This is despite trying many new...


Ah, yes.
If you look in the manual you'll find that the mic is supposed to do this.
If the LED does not blink when you switch on then you have a flat battery, otherwise it shouldn't stay lit.
The manual is available here in PDF format: http://pdf.crse.com/manuals/3858569131.pdf
I hope this helps.

Recording issues


My first guess would be that the minidisc player does not provide enough power for the mic. I believe Sony makes an external battery pack to compensate for these problems. Hope this helps!

Problem recording when connected to computer


In the volume control panel look for mic boost and tick the box to boost the microphone volume. It's under options properties/Advanced controls etc.
