Contact the Lectrosonics sales department for more information about non-Lectrosonics receivers.
The control panel includes four membrane switches and an LCD screen to adjust the operational settings. Multi- color LEDs are used to indicate audio signal levels for accurate gain adjustment and for battery status.
Wide-Band Deviation ±75 kHz deviation improves the signal to noise ratio and audio dynamic range of a wireless system dramatically, compared to other designs that use ±30 kHz to 40 kHz deviation. Wide deviation combined with a high powered transmitters makes a significant improvement in signal to noise ratio and operating range.
Variable Power Output This advanced feature allows the operator to optimize the transmitter for maximum battery life, or for maximum operating range. Power output is selected using the LCD in a setup mode while the RF output of the trans- mitter is turned off.

Some mics require RF protection to keep the radio signal from affecting the capsule, even though the transmitter input circuitry is already RF bypassed (see schematic diagram).
If the mic is wired as directed, and you are having dif- ficulty with squealing, high noise, or poor frequency response, RF is likely to be the cause.
The best RF protection is accomplished by installing RF bypass capacitors at the mic capsule. If this is not pos- sible, or if you are still having problems, capacitors can be installed on the mic pins inside the TA5F connector 2 WIRE MIC

TroubleshootingBefore going through the following chart, be sure that you have a good battery in the transmitter. It is important that you follow these steps in the sequence listed.
SYMPTOM TRANSMITTER PWR LED OFF
1) Battery is inserted backwards or dead.
2) Transmitter not powered up. (See Operating Instructions, Power UP and Boot Sequence.) TRANSMITTER PWR LED BLINKS GREEN EVERY FEW SECONDS, TRANSMITTER
DOES NOT RESPOND OTHERWISE
1) Transmitter has been put to sleep by the remote control.
Either use the remote control to wake it up again or remove and reinsert the transmitter's battery.
AUDIO LEVEL LEDs NOT LIGHTING
1) Gain control set to minimum.
2) Battery is dead or installed backwards. Check PWR LED.
3) Mic capsule is damaged or malfunctioning.
4) Mic cable damaged or mis-wired.
RECEIVER RF INDICATOR OFF
1) Transmitter not turned on, or is in Standby Mode.
2) Transmitter battery is dead.
3) Receiver antenna missing or improperly positioned.
4) Transmitter and receiver not on same frequency.
Check switches/display on transmitter and receiver.
5) Transmitter and receiver not on same frequency block.
6) Operating range is too great.
7) Defective transmitter antenna.
NO SOUND (OR LOW SOUND LEVEL), RECEIVER INDICATES PROPER AUDIO MODULATION
1) Receiver output level set too low.
2) Receiver output disconnected, or cable defective or mis-wired.
3) Sound system or recorder input is turned down.
1) Transmitter gain (audio level) is far too high. Check audio level LEDs and receiver audio levels during use.
2) Receiver output may be mismatched with the sound system or recorder input. Adjust output level on receiver to the correct level for the recorder, mixer or sound system. (Use the receiver's Tone function to check level.) 3) Transmitter is not set to same frequency as receiver. Check that operating frequency on receiver and transmitter match.
4) Receiver/Transmitter Compatibility Mode mismatched.
1) Transmitter gain (audio level) too high. Check gain adjustment and/or reduce receiver output level.
2) Talent standing too close to speaker system.
3) Mic is too far from user's mouth.
Super-Minature Belt Pack Transmitter
HISS AND NOISE -- AUDIBLE DROPOUTS
1) Transmitter gain (audio level) far too low.
2) Receiver antenna missing or obstructed.
3) Transmitter antenna broken or missing.
4) Operating range too great.
5) Signal interference. Turn off transmitter. If receiver's signal strength indicator does not drop to nearly zero, this indicates an interfering signal may be the problem.
Try a different operating frequency.
"Loc" APPEARS IN DISPLAY WHEN ANY BUTTON IS PRESSED
1) Control Panel is locked. (See Operating Instructions, Locking and Unlocking the Control Panel.) "Hold" APPEARS IN DISPLAY WHEN ARROW BUTTONS ARE PRESSED
1) Reminder that it is necessary to hold down the AUDIO or FREQ button to make adjustments to the audio gain or frequency settings.
"PLL" APPEARS IN DISPLAY
1) Indication that the PLL is not locked. This is a serious condition that requires factory repair. It may be possible to operate on another frequency far removed from the one that was selected when the condition was indicated.
TRANSMITTER WON'T RESPOND TO REMOTE CONTROL
1) If LCD blinks "rc oFF", transmitter has not been configured to respond to the remote control. See "Remote Control Operation" on page 7 for instructions on how to configure.
2) If LCD blinks "- - - - - -", transmitter is already set as requested by the remote control.
3) If transmitter does not respond at all, try moving the remote control closer to the microphone or increasing the remote control's loudness setting, or increasing the audio level on the transmitter.
4) Make sure volume of RM and proximity of microphone are sufficient to engage transmitter.
5) Make sure transmitter is not in Sleep mode.
RM Troubleshooting FREQUENCY CHANGES, BUT NOT TO DESIRED FREQUENCY
1) RM set on different block than transmitter in question. RM uses hex code to set frequency - set RM to proper frequency block, or use hex code method to change frequency.
