Vx1000 mic issues

Recommended Posts

So here’s the issue, my mic has completely died but I have power running through the handle all the way to the l.e.d in the front of the handle butttt my auxiliary mic plug is not functioning either. All my connections are tight, my theory is that something is wrong processing the audio in the brains of the camera and the ears are working just fine? Anyone have similar issues? Yo Kerry@Video Electronics you still lurking these forums?

Hey, yes I still check several time a day during the week. So to be sure I understand, when a tape is in and it's in cam more, are you seeing the level meter move, letting you know that the mic is picking up audio...but it's not recording it? Or the mic isn't picking up the audio?

The mic isn’t picking up anything according to the meter. But I was curious if there was anyway that it’s not the mic but something internal with the processing of the audio. Probably just the mic though.

It can be other things, sure. I have one on the bench right now that has a badly corroded connector on the AU board, where FP-208 connects coming from the back of the handle. Couldn't see it at all until I pulled the ribbon and found it solid green.
