    Reviving a HI-Q Battery

    Thanks for the replies guys! Ill be sure to check out the charger Nate. That's an interesting feature for sure, maybe it's the kickstart it needs. Glen, I went through this process on the day, didn't make any difference unfortunately. I'll keep this updated should I find a fix.

    Reviving a HI-Q Battery

    Hi all!, I have a question regarding a new 98WH Hi-Q battery that i own. While switching my kit on, there was no power. I realized it was the battery, and tried charging it on the dual charger. It sits at 83%, and shows 0.00 amps the whole time. It hasn’t been dropped or exposed to water, it just decided to stop working. The battery otherwise seems fine. Short of returning it to the dealer for a replacement, as anyone had any success reviving a battery in a similar state, like a jump start or similar? Cheers

    Zaxcom Link - Advice for a new recruit

    Thanks for this! Exactly what I was after. So after some more deliberation, I ended up going for the RX200. The AA batt option got me over the line. There are sooooo many features and options with these Zax units, very impressive. ps. Was just in Austin recently, love that town!

    Zaxcom Link - Advice for a new recruit

    ps ... I have a full list of the different and possible cables required, was more just after the experiences from the field.
  10. Hi all, I am new to Zaxcom, having been solely Lectro/SD up until this point. I have just today put an order in (via the Aust. distributor) for a TRX900CL & QRX235 w QIFB. This decision has been a long time coming, and I am very, very excited. What I haven’t ordered are the cables. I’d like to ask if there are any thoughts or advice experienced users out there have for me in regards to cables, cable routing, workflow options etc… even any quirks that I you may want to share relating to this setup. I’ll still be running my usual trusty SD recorders (633/788), and Lectro wireless. As may be asked The new Zax unit will be in Block 20, which really was my only option as have other wireless in 21/22/24/26. The 21 are Lectro IFBs. Thanks!!
  11. Hi all, Has anyone had any success with recording the audio of Scuba divers, using body pack recorders only? I have a couple of Zaxcom ZFR-300 recorders that i can use, but wouldn’t want to without reading about someones prior experiments in these conditions, pressure, waterproofing etc… Thanks!!

    Waterproof capsules / saltwater

    Hi all! I have a job which will involve the talent getting submerged often in saltwater, white water rafting etc… I have Lectrosonics WM transmitters for the task, but am curious about the capsules. What are peoples experiences with capsules working under these conditions, with being submerged and still working. Lectro M152-WP, Sanken COS-11D, B3, B6 etc… cheers!

    NAB 2016

    Hello all! Well i've been outta touch for a while, mostly very deep in Reality TV land! I'm hoping to get over to the US this April, to see family and friends, but more importantly get to NAB and the JWSOUND party! I'm aware of the exhibit dates for the NAB show, but is there a date set for the JWSOUND meetup? regards Ben

    Lectrosonics SM series battery eliminator

    Thank you for the replies guys! Yes i felt that it related to what you outline there Wes, and will get in touch regarding the SM2DOORKIT. I set them up and couldn't fault them but then both started dropping out fairly persistently with only a bit of light movement of the bag to trigger it. This was the issue back in the day, so hopefully new door and a bit of silver will have them back doing what they do best. cheers!!
  15. Hi all, I have two old style batt eliminators for my SM series, and true to my memory they are faulty, intermittent power loss being the problem. I recall that this was an issue for others at the time, but stopped needing them so lost interest in fixing them. I really need these now for a job, my question is, can I fix this problem myself? Is it as easy as replacing a washer to make a better connection?? New ones are very expensive I noticed, would rather make use of the ones I currently own. Regards Ben
