I've plugged my AKG 100 Perception into my marshall AVT150HX, it dosent work at all, compaired to a vocal mic that I've used in it. any help would be appreciated. it has nothing to do with any of the troubleshooting problems offered.
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...

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!!
If the mic is a condensor you would need to have phantom power, or it will not work. Use a small mixer or externat power supply. We here at Pro Line Music Have small mixers that have phantom power. 215-736-8055
I have similar problems with inputing stereo sound. How do you know your mic port on the PC is set for stereo? What kind of a cable are you using? If it is an XLR, the connection is pure mono. Maybe you need a TRS cable, which looks like a 1/4 inch jack but is really stereo.
Maybe you need a stereo mini. Usually a cable mismatch is the problem.
Is your phantom power supply passing stereo? All the ones I have seen are mono. You may need two.
Is your sound capture set for stereo? Are the input level controls set correctly for equal volume on left or right channel?
I would try the mic with a regular amplifier to insure both channels are working. Then trace the signal from mic to power supply and power supply to computer.
