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.

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.
