No it will not. The reason for the word phantom is that it does not affect microphones that don't need it (apart from some types of ribbon mics)

My at4033a/sm is about 6 years old and only used 2 or three times .plugged it in...there is no sound


I have two words for you...Phantom Power.

Electrete condenser mic's MUST have phantom power to operate. Look for "Phantom Power" button on your Jackie (surely means Mackie) and try it again BUT turn volume down before engaging phantom power or testing mic.

My At 4040 just stopped working, no sound ?


Use a volt meter to measure the phantom power. Measure DC voltage between pins 2 and 1 and then between 3 and 1. They should measure the same and be between 12-48 volts dc.

I just bought an audio technica at2020 cardioid condenser mic its the 20 series and i cant figure out how to get it to work on my toshiba laptop


Unlike 'Dynamic' microphones all condenser microphones require some sort of power supply to make them work. Sometimes this can be by way of an internal battery but many of them work on an external 'phantom' power supply.
I am not familiar with the exact model number you quote but AT make 2 types of AT2020 condenser microphone.
1) If your AT microphone is fitted with a USB plug then you can connect it directly to the USB socket on your computer, which will provide it with the power that it needs to make it work. The USB bus should automatically recognise the microphone and allocate an audio channel to it but you may still have to select this device as your input source in your recording program. How you do this will differ from one program to another.

2) However if the microphone is fitted with a standard jack-plug then it will not work by you just plugging it into your computer microphone input socket as this is not powered. You will need a separate 48volt DC power supply to power the microphone.
You will almost certainly also need some sort of microphone pre-amplifier to match the output voltage and impedance (electrical resistance) of the microphone to the levels required by your audio input socket on your computer.
Probably the best way to achieve both of these requirements at lowest cost would be to purchase a small audio mixer with a phantom power option such as the Phonic AM220 http://cpc.farnell.com/phonic/am220/mixing-console-am220/dp/DP29303

WARNING - most audio mixers only have one on/off switch for phantom, power - thus the power is either on or off for ALL channels. Some other devices - like radio microphones, keyboards and electric guitars may be damaged by having 48v dc current supplied to them

Here is a link to the technical specs sheet for the AT2020 http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/resource_library/literature/49f63e6efc082082/at2020_english.pdf

I dropped the audio technica at2020 mic and when i record it doesn't pick anything


Most likely it could be two things either a connection is not getting current anymore. my 2020s have went through hell and no problems. or the other suggestion is that your phantom power is not being sent from your preamp to the microphone (not to make you feel stupid, just a reoccuring problem on this board.)
Good Luck, Cody J.

Dr-vx1 microphone was dropped now it does not sound like its suppose to how do I fix it?


Open the unit and look for damage. If nothing is obviously wrong, the element probably has fatal damage.

Hello my name is Frank .I would like to know how to hookup mic with phantom power.Tascam dp01


Unless you have the FX model, there is no Phantom built in. You will need to get an external Phantom Power Supply, such as this one by Audio Technica http://www.zzounds.com/item--DAVAT8801
