PanasonicAG DVX 100B -problem with sound input - external mic. I cannot get sound bars from externally connected mic. I've check settings over & over, used several known-to-work cables and mics. All I get is a sound bar "click" when I turn the mic on or off. Have I missed anything? Any known repair people in Oregon?

SOURCE: My external mic wont work! Please help.

Hello, I'll try to help you by begining with a small description of the microphone connector you have. An XLR connector is a balanced type of signal connector. It means that it has 3 pins, one is for ground connection, on for signal positive and one for negative signal. Your camera woun't need those pins, instead it needs only a ground connection and a signal pin (2 pins). You need to use an adapter but this doesn't solve all the problem. You should either tell me the model of your microphone because I need to check if it's a Phantom powered microphone (it means one of the pins of it's XLR connector carries a 48 volts connection that is needed to power on some components inside it's casing). Phantom powered capacitor microphones also uses XLR connectors so we need to make shure if the microphone is compatible with the camera. Just tell me what's written on the microphone and I will check for you. If it's not compatible (if it's an XLR phantom powered microphone) you will need to search for another one because these microphones are made for using in live sound mixing aplications (concerts, studio recordings etc). If it's compatible, I will then instruct you on how to adjust the adapter in order to have it work. Please don't try to connect it any more untill we clear this out because an incompatible microphone can damage the camera's microphone amplifier circuit. Also please don't try to connect another adapter meanwhile. I'll reply to you as quick as possible. Thanks for understanding and patience.

SOURCE: mic input

have seen a couple of these cameras with this problem.  a defective board inside the camera is the culprit. the board itself costs around $500 plus the labor to replace it.

Connect LG NB3520A to Fisher RS-625 receiver


You would have to install a speaker selection switch. You cannot directly hook up 2 amplifiers to one set of speakers without destroying one or both amplifiers. Unfortunately, one set of amplifiers is inside your sound bar. An external switch would have to be installed on your sound bar as well as speaker terminals that would connect to your Fisher.

If you have a line out or tape out on your Fisher, and you have an analog input on your sound bar, use could use that as an alternate solution. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Sony does not currently make an input adapter for connecting external microphones to camcorders.
However, Sony manufactures a number of different external microphones for camcorder use that do not require an input adapter. Depending on your camcorder model, you may be able to find a compatible external microphone from the Sony® Parts and Accessories Sales Center or Sony Style Web site.
NOTE: Not all camcorders have an input jack or Active Interface Shoe for connecting an external microphone.

I dont understand how to use an external mic. Use of external mic.


Your external mic needs to have a 1/8" plug. You will need to find the "Mic" input, this is generally found behind a removable or hinged plastic or rubber panel, and usually near the A/V plug connectors. When you plug in an external mic, the camera switches over to use it rather than the built-in mic. On this camcorder, you cannot set the recording level of the external mic. The camera sets the level automatically. So it is simply a plug-and-play, or plug-and-record solution.

Using an external mic allows you to reduce self-noise and handling noise. It is generally recommended for better videos. Different microphones are likely to interact in different ways with your camera and its automatic level-setting, so you should try out different microphones if you have more than one available to you.

Sound Input problems


What you have to do is go to your speaker volume icon in the taskbar, right click and go to open volume control and click mute microphone. If mic does not show click Advanced. This dissables the onboard mic but allows the use of your external microphone, rectifying the tinny sound.
