Hi,the switch for the phantom power on the microphone is to activation of the mic.Without the phantom being activated, the mic will not work.
It can only be activated with a mixer console that has a phantom activation on it. After connecting the mic to the mixer,activate the phantompoweronthe mixer and switch on the phantom power on the mic,and problem solved.
Note: Mic will not work if no phantom activated on the mixer.
Have you tried using a another XLR cable..,or are the other mics phantom powered condensers..ie try to locate if its a mic problem or the cable..2 other points are 1 - XLR leads for phantom mics need to be XLR to XLR male to Female plugs[ends] 2- is that often an XLR to XLR cable will be not soldered or wired right,so that the power [phantom power is not getting to the mic] so ensure you have a proper cable for that job...Sorry i can't be more specific but from reading your problem all these issues come to mind..If you have ruled all these things out,then it could be the capsule or loose joint or component in the mic which means contact AKG,pro audio services or find a DIY mic person to help..G luck!!
Had the same problem. Check the ground (earth) is attached properly to the mic. This will cause the signal to be interrupted and can also cause a phasing problem. A lot of techs don't check that when you send them for repair
The problem is that your amp probably doesn't have phantom power. This mic requires phantom power to be supplied to it via the XLR connector. Most mixers and mic pres have that feature, but most guitar amps do not, I believe. Hope that helps...
