Hi wangkatja

There is little that the user can do to introduce hum to a pro recorder like this, so it will not be something you are doing. Does the unit still do this when you are recording from batteries. If not, this would point to the power supply having poor regulation. If the gear is brand new, I suggest returning it to the supplier and get them to sort it out for you. Marantz service is generally pretty good.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you.

The input levels of the left and right microphones are highly inequal, what can I do?

perhaps the left speaker is damaged
what i would do is load a known mp3 too the sdcard
and play it back on your unit

if its aok level wise
then the left mic has an issue
try an external input too the left mic
if it again records bad there is an issue with the input amp and alc circuit
if it records ok chances are the left electret mic has failed and will need replaced out usually these small mics have an amp built in then this output goes at line level to the input switched between line level in mic in or internal mic in as a mix....

Sometimes my AKG Perception 420 won't record properly, when played back it sounds like white noise with the faintest sound of what i'm trying to record in the background

All microphones have a signal to noise ratio. Basically defined as the level of desired sound to background noise (unwanted sound). Microphone phones also have self noise which should be considered when choosing a mic. There will be noise in every mic, some more audible than others. Condenser microphones require phantom power (48V). This can be supplied by mic prea
mps, mixers, and similar equipment. *Note that phantom power (mic pre amps) must be on or engaged, this can be specific to different types of equipment.
Troubleshooting:Has your microphone been dropped or exposed to moisture? Internal damage to your microphone will be hard to assess but this could possibly be the issue. Inspect the microphone cable, check for damages. Try using a another microphone cable-- preferably a new one. Next to check would be your mic's power supply. Make sure all connections are made properly (mic to cable to power supply). If you are using a mixer or pre amp with multiple inputs, test the mic on each input. (You should test by making recordings and comparing with each change to isolate possible causes). Also test the mixer or pre amp by slowly sweeping the input gain feature while recording an audible source such as singing into the microphone. Typically next in the audio recording chain would be your DAW (digital audio workstation) or computer, but problems with noise most likely precede this.
I could possibly provide more useful information if I know your exact setup.
Provided that you have your equipment setup properly, the microphone or mixer/preamp could possibly be damaged/malfunctioning. I suggest taking your equipment to a trusted repair shop, or if still under warranty, returning to the manufacturer for repairs or replacement.
Hope this helps

I am attaching an external microphone and need to mute the internal mic. They both work and it echos. PLease help.

Adding a mike doesn't create echos/feedback. Windows? Version? Right click on speaker icon in lower right and go to recording device mixers, can mute and adjust level of sound sources, also microphone power and pre-amp. Telephones and other devices (laptops) with both input and output will feedback unless the input is "noise cancelling", so you will have to be much more careful with the placement of the external mike compared to using the built in mike.

Telephone recording

Yeah, um connect it to a phone in a room that is normally isolated from traffic. Not an ideal solution but as it is a machine and has only an external mic (it doesn't have an internal mic does it?) this is the only solution really, remove all noise except phone conversations.
