Shure PG42 Microphone Questions & Answers
I hear a white noise when I connect microphone with mixer (Behringer DX2000)
You posted this in questions about the Shure PG42 mic. That mic comes in two versions. There's the USB version which connects direct to a PC. Then there's the standard version which is used with a mixer. I presume you have the standard version as the Behringer doesn't have inputs for USB mics.
The standard version is a condenser mic. It needs power. The power is supplied by the mixer. It is known as phantom power because it travels up the mic cable from the mixer to the mic.
- Make sure your mixer has phantom power switched on.
- Use the correct mic cable: Either a 3 pin XLR to 3 pin XLR, or a 3 pin XLR to 3-pole jack (TRS). The leadis a balanced mic cable
- Check the setting on the mic for attenuation. 0dB is no reduction in signal level. 20dB is a large reduction
- Look at the Behringer's settings. Make sure you know what each control does and how it affects the sound. Pay particular attention to the effects send and return (FX SND RTN)
Most times there's an issue with no sound from a mic, it's usually down to a poor quality or broken cable; or no power; or the settings on the mixer.
I plugged in the mic
The PG42 requires phantom power. Turn on Phantom power on the mixer that you are plugging into.

How do you turn off mute icon on nady uhf-800 wireless systems?
This system is out of date and actually ******* to use sell (NOS or old) or in the US these days as the govt. sold off those wireless frequencies to the cell phone companies. The mute icon is likely always on because as soon as you power it up the cellco transmitters are overpowering the miniscule 20 milliwatts your system puts out. Sell it legally on ebay mexico or europe where those frequencies are still in use for wireless mics.
Interference on psm200 wireless monitor
- Because the US govt. has sold off those frequencies to Sprint/ATT/Verizon and that is the interference you are hearing. It is now ******* to use those systems, as they interfere with cellular systems. I wouldn't buy another wireless system for a year or so, as the govt. has just done this AGAIN and audio pros will now again be buying new wireless systems replaced just years ago because of the govt's need for money and cell co's need for bandwidth.
- Next time, step up and buy a tuneable system that will allow you to scan for open frequencies to use so you can avoid stepping on/being stepped on by someone else using the same frequency but with much more power than the 20 mw a PSM 200 puts out.
- You cannot legally sell this system (new or used) in the US today. To unload it, sell it on eBay Mexico or europe, where these frequencies are still in use and legal.
