TROUBLESHOOTING
Note: Most problems are directly related to low battery power.
Please run through the “Battery Check” items first. For remaining
troubleshooting, use known good, fully-charged batteries.
PROBLEM: Most Problems are related to low battery power.
SOLUTION: Battery Check
• Confirm batteries are charged each night. A blinking red light on the power button
indicates a low battery.
• Confirm proper batteries are used. The Flexmike requires the Lightspeed NH2.4V
rechargeable battery pack. The Sharemike requires the Lightspeed NH2APK
rechargeable pattery pack.
• Make sure the microphones obtain a full charge. A full charge takes 8-9 hours.
• When charging transmitter, ensure the Blue status light and the red charging light
turn on. The green light will turn on when a full charge is reached.
PROBLEM: Microphone doesn’t indicate a “Ready” signal (solid blue or red light)
4. Speaker Location
& Installation
SOLUTION: Follow these steps to ensure the system is ready to use.
• Ensure the power button on the microphone is turned on. Once turned on, the blue
light should begin blinking.
• Power the microphone off, then on again after a few seconds. Wait for up to 30
seconds for the blue light to turn solid, indicating READY for operation.
PROBLEM: Low Volume or Feedback
3. iR Sensor Location
& Installation
SOLUTION: Follow these steps to eliminate low volume or feedback.
• Check microphone volume level on the amplifier. If the volume is too high, feedback
will occur. Adjust accordingly.
• Check input volume level on the amplifier. If the volume is too high, feedback will
occur. Adjust accordingly.
• Adjust the volume level on the Flexmike.
PROBLEM: No Sound From speaker and wireless components.

• Confirm that the blue POWER light located on the front panel of the amplifier is on.
• Confirm the microphone is powered on and linked to the amplifier. The mic 1 status
light will be green on the amplifier indicating the microphone is linked.
• Confirm that the microphone is turned on. There will be a solid blue light on the top
of microphone to indicate it is powered on and ready.
• Check speaker connections on the amplifier. Make sure the cables are properly
connected (see page 31 of this manual for more information).
• Check volume level of amplifier. Make sure that the microphone volume level on
the 955Access, Access Link or the Cat 885 Channel A is not turned down all the way.
Slowly turn up the volume level while talking into the microphone.
• If a Media Connector is registered (paired) with the 955 Access or Access Link, make
sure that the volume level of the Media Connector is not turned down all the way.
Slowly turn up the volume level while talking into the microphone.
