This is an electret condenser microphone which isn't a standalone self-energising device and needs a small amount of power and a couple of other components to produce a working device.

It is possible the Sony microphone might have some, all or none of those built into the package and this will have to be investigated.

The power requirement is typically 2 - 3 volts.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: flaky transmission range sensor connector

I'm not sure if it can be. Lots of these newer connectors are sold as , you know, only complete and you splice it in. Is it bad on the switch side or the body harness side of the connector? Heck, if it's just to the back-up bulbs, you could connect the two wires together outside of the connector, and bypass the connector problem on that one wire. That would be the easiest fix, as long as the other pin connections are good
Now on the older removeable spade type connectors, you slip a fine wire or needle along the top of the metal pin to push down a little tang, and then the wire and pin will pull out from back of the plastic connector.
Well, good luck, Bill.

Trying to connect sure MX393 mic with Camcorder


The MX393 requires phantom power. Unfortunately, camcorders do not have phantom power. Thus, you'll need an adapter box to go in between. Beachtek makes some nice interfaces. Make certain the Beachtek interface has phantom power.

My external mic wont work! Please help.


If the mic is working on other camera's, what about the adaptor ? If there is a possiblity of checking the mic and the adaptor together on other equipment ? Use another mic with the same plug as the camera, ie. PC microphone (you can even test by using an earphone, the earphone can be used as mic) If it works then the XLR mic with adaptor is the problem. If ther other mic (used for testing) also did not work then the microphone jack (socket) in the camera is defective or the gain setting of the camera is set to minimum.

Mxl 40000: When you plug it in it works for a split second and then volumn drops to almost zero.


Sounds like a weak or missing Phantom Power Supply. This power is supplied by the source "mixing console" and can be turned off on many models of consoles. If you have a smaller and lower end mixer it is possible it does not provide the needed Phantom Power. Also if the mic cable is incorrectly wired the Phantom Power is not being properly supplied to the mic. This also could damage the mic by putting the voltage on the wrong pin connections. Pin 1 is ground, pins 2 and 3 are audio high and low. Sorry I do know the exact connection for 2 and 3. The user/owners manual may supply the correct wiring information. A store bought cable of good quality should already be wired correctly.

Phantom power?


Phantom power is used for microphones with "built-in" electronics. These mic's, receive a DC voltage through the mic cable that powers the internal electronics. I have never ran into wireless microphones that require Phanto power, so I will assume that your wireless problem(s) is being caused by something else. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_power

Hi, I bought the Shure Beta 98H/C phantom powered clip on mic and was told(and read online) I could use the MX1BP as a battery preamp for the microphone when phantom power was not available. So looking at...


That will not work. The Beta 87H/C already has a preamp built into it. That preamp requires phantom power. The MX1BP is another preamp, so you would not need it, due to the preamp that is built in.

If you do not have phantom power available, then purchase an external phantom power supply.

When I switch on my Rode NT1 - A mic - it is OK until I speak into it and it cuts off for about 20 mins. Then it comes on - then it cuts off when I speak or sing. Can you advise?


I had the same issue. The sound would fade and then go dead.. The preamp in the device I was using wasn't strong enough and also the phantom power seemed too low to sustain the microphone. After adding a TUBEPre by PreSonus, all of the issues went away and I was shocked to hear how good this microphone really is. Was the issue low phantom voltage/? or a lousy preamp? All I know is , after adding a preamp all of the problems went away.This has to be the best microphone I have tried in this price range.

I have a MXL 990 studio mic which I recorded one no longerworks


Are you using the original cable for the mike? In order to use phantom power the XLR connectors have to be wired in balanced configuration. Pins 1,2 and 3 must be wired separately. If you use a cable with 1and 3 connected you could damage the phantom power supply and in some cases the microphone.
