End User Instructions for Operating Microphones

  1. Turn on each microphone receiver that will be in use.
  2. Turn on each transmitter that corresponds to the receiver(s) that you turned on.
  3. Check the battery life. The battery indicator is found on the microphone receiver. It is shaped like a battery and can have from one to four marks indicating battery life. Total battery life is between four and eight hours, depending on usage. Three or four marks are usually sufficient. Fewer marks mean the microphone should not be used until the battery is replaced.
  4. Adjust volume using the corresponding channel on the microphone mixer. The labels on each channel identify which microphone receiver has been wired to a particular channel.
  5. Most microphone issues can be addressed by adjusting volume up or down as necessary. If there is outside interference, the microphone receiver needs to be turned off.
