Pick up an inexpensive 9 volt convertor at radio shack or similar retail electronics store you have there. It sounds to me the your power adapter went bad. Make sure you ask to person at the store to test your adapter for you. If there is a radio shack or similar store they will be able to test it for you. There is an old school way to test it but I can not officially tell you to try it, but some people touch the tip of the adapter to there tongue. It is only 9 volts so you should feel a light tingle on your tongue the same as when you touch your tongue to the tips of a square 9 volt battery to see if there is power. If there is no tingle the adapter must be replaced. I'm not telling you to do that, that is just how some people do it to test for power without a meter.

The line connection from battery to the circuit board to switch on the radio receiver.Need to clean and resoldering works.Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....If i have helped,please click to rate.It is the only way i get paid for my work...

Hi,

Pls check the slide switch by opening the casing and checking the continuity using a DVM (continuity tester). Alternately if your particular model uses it, pls check the battery connector. You may have to cut the plastic covering to expose the how the wires (red * black) were soldered underneath. Some models have the spring type battery terminal, you may need to clean/scrape to ensuretight battery contacts.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,



    If it were just the power problem, then any knowledgeable electronics tech could work on it just as long as the tuning is not compromised/touched, then it should be relatively straight forward.

    In some instances, it could just be the led indicator. The led flashes when powered on but will turn steady when connected to its mate microphone.

MY VIDOE CAMCORDER WILL NOT RECORD SOUND WHEN I ATTACH A MIC


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.

Have an Aiptek HD 12 1080p with Azden wireless mic system. no sound with wireless mic, but sound works on camcorder without the wireless.


you need to use a mono-to-stereo cable, the azden is a mono output mic by the aiptek is a stereo input and you are shorting out the phantom power with a mono plug in a stereo jack.

Lexicon Alpha got phantom?


The Lexicon Alpha does NOT have phantom power. The mic input expects a standard mic or a "self-powered" condensor mic. This means that you will neex external phantom power. There are power units available that use 9V batteries for this.

How to make Shure wireless mic work with Azden 305


Sorry, that is not possible. Different manufacturers use different companding, noise reduction, and squelch schemes. Thus, even if they are on the same frequency, you might not get any audio or the audio might sound quite funny.

MY JOB DEPENDS ON THIS!!! SONY DSR PD170 AUDIO PROBLEMS


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

The Sony PD170 is not an everyday equipment, nonetheless, I will assume that on the Sony DSR PD170:
  • the Samson UHF M32 receiver is plugged to Audio 1;
  • boom mic is plugged to Audio 2; (or vice versa) and
  • Both Audio 1 & 2 are using the XLR connectors.
Assuming that your boom mic is a conventional dynamic, on the Audio Control Panel, pls set:
  • INPUT 1 -
  • MIC CH SELECT CH1&CH2
  • INPUT LEVEL MIC
  • +48 OFF
  • INPUT 2 -
  • INPUT LEVEL MIC
  • +48 OFF
This is of course assuming that both the boom mic and the output of the Samson UHF M32 receiver are set to MIC level. In some instances the Samson UHF M32 receiver requires a LINE setting. The only time the +48 is set to ON is when the mic that is used/plug in requires phantom power such as condenser types. If the mic or the Samson UHF M32 receiver requires power then this should be switched ON otherwise, there will be no audio coming in. Though most M32 uses a 9 volts battery.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How to hook wireless mic to canon xl2


Plug it into Audio 1 ports, switch to audio, not mic on the physical camera, then check that you have selected stereo 12 bit, 1,2 from the record audio menu.
Also note you have to push the button next to the audio meter to monitor different sources.
