It's hard to tell what might be wrong with it. It will probably need to be sent to Shure for repairs.

C1 not working


Sounds like your Phantom power supply may be defective. To be safe, 1st try moving AC plug for Phantom supply to another outlet as sometimes "sharing grounds" can be a problem. If this doesn't help, try using another phantom power source ...many PA mixers have built-in phantom power. If the buzz disappears with a new one, it will be a filtering issue (capacitors) with the old phantom supply.

When the phantom power is on, some channels decide to come and to. Particularly with the SM57 mic


Don't know what you are saying. Phantom power is only used for Condenser mics and a few DI boxes. Make sure you ONLY use TRS or XLR cables into ANY/ALL inputs when using Phantom power. Please describe what you mean by :some channels decide to come". ONLY change Phantom power when system is off as you will get loud noise often by switching phantom while live.

I have set-up M-Audio microphone recently but I can't seem to figure out HOW to begin using it. I've tried every drop down and clicked every recording button while I was using the software. . . is there...


Without knowing your setup or the mic model, my guess is that you need to run a phantom power supply to the mic to get it to function. This is done either by using an outboard analog mixing console or mic preamp with a phantom power switch, or using an inline phantom power supply. The microphone plugs into the mixer or mic pre with the phantom turned on, and then into your DAW system.
The phantom power works with condensor microphones like the one you have. It sends a 48v signal to the microphone element, which in turn energizes the element and makes it function. Dynamic mics, like a Shure SM 58 for example, do not need the phantom power and will even ignore it if run on a phantom powered channel. condensor mics however must have it to function, otherwise there will not be any sound. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

I have a condenser mic, and it needed phantom power to work, so I bought the Ultra Di-100, but I don't know how to make my mic work with it.


Sorry, but the DI-100 can OPERATE on phantom power, not supply it. If you have a mixer that has phantom power then you have no need for the DI box. DI boxes are to convert unbalanced signals to balanced to send via XLR or TRS cables.

If you don't have a mixer that has built in Phantom power or a source of Phantom power, then you need a mic preamp that can supply the phantom power.

Here is an example device, but DO shop[ around as you should find some even less expensive. Make sure they have phantom power.

I got a 35 mm cable on my c01 and it won't work on my pc does someone know the problem..cuz when i put another mic in it just works fine


You Samson microphone requires phantom power to operate. PC's don't have phantom power. You need to run your mic thru a mixer that has phantom power.

Cant get microphone to work


does your microphone require "phantom power" - if so there would be a switch/setting to turn on 'phantom power' which provides 48VDC to power up a condensor microphone. Let us know how it works out for you.

Sennheiser em100 g2 receiver passes major static to mixer


This is a well known problem with the EW100 series that is easily solved.
You will need to run this reciever into a line input via a mono(TS) jack to jack lead. this will bypass the phantom power.
Make sure that you set the AV OUT to +18 in the reciever menu to get optimum level.
Phantom power is only present in the microphone inputs XLR3.
Hope this helps.

Can't operate my MXL 990


If it is an MXL 990 Condenser that comes in the grey case with a shockmount and a black hard mount I can solve your problem. (If it is USB I know nothing about that unit).

This MXL 990 microphone MUST have 48v phantom power in order to operate. If you aren't familiar with the term phantom power read the first link:

Phantom power - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_power
MXL User Guide - http://www.mxlmics.com/support/guides.html

If yours is one of the older MXL 990's it should have an XLR connector on the bottom -
XLR Defined - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XLR_connector

Your mixer (I am guessing its a Peavey, Tascam, Mackie) or something entry level like that may or may not have phantom power. I am guessing not. But if it does, it will have a switch that says 48v phantom power and most likely a green or red LED next to it to show you when its on. This mic will NOT work without phantom power.

Best suggestion: Verify that your mic is the MXL 990 Condenser, if it is it needs 48v phantom power. Check your mixer and see if it has 48v phantom power. The only computer soundcard that I know of that is used by a lot of folks is the M-Audio Delta 1010LT. It has XLR inputs but NO phantom power on it.

There's your answer.

Connecting phantom microphones without result


if you have a volt meter check the supply is working correctly
48v dc phantom power should be found between these pins on any xlr mic cable.

pin 1 and pin 2
also between pin1 and pin 3

make sure you have amps turned down before checking/switching 48v phantom power

as if all is up and running it can cause big noise in the speakers.

let me know how it goes
