I'm not sure how familiar you are with this desk, or mixing desks in general. So, you've tried it with different microphones? Has it ever worked...? Have the microphones been tested with other equipment...? And have you followed the basic setup procedure as described on P5 of this manbual...?

The most likely thing is that the mic is either set up wrong or is faulty. Have you got a known working wired mic to try (if not I'm sure your local dealer would be willing to help if there's a prospect of future business in it for them). Which Sennheiser wireless mic is it? I know the workings of the Freeport and EW series so may be able to help.

Has it ever worked with a mic? It's not clear whether something has changed - gone wrong - or whether you've never had it working how you want. Have you followed the instructions in the manual? Did you get the red peak LED showing?


Quote:

Test the microphone by speaking some loud words while holding it close to your mouth. The green signal present indicator (LED) of channel 1 will light. Turn the first channel’s “Gain Control” – the control all the way on the top of the channel’s module – to the right until the red peak LED will briefly blink. Turn the Gain Control back a little bit to the left. The signal level for this channel is now optimally set.

How do you have the EQ set on each mic channel?
