    Help - Flashing Freq on SRb???

    The blinking switch setting indicator is a Phase-Locked Loop error. There are several possible faults to cause this problem.

    Noise with Countryman B6 and Lectro SMWB

    How is the B6 microphone wired? We have noted that the figure 1 information from our mic wiring page does indeed cause the noise you have reported. https://www.lectrosonics.com/Support/Microphone-Wiring/uhf-transmitter-5-pin-input-jack-wiring.html Suggest using the wiring from Countryman's site as shown in the pic below... Please let us know if this wiring cures the high pitched noise.

    Lectro SMV battery drain

    Also recommended to clean the battery door and the mating surface on the housing. See details on the attached .pdf document. Only a small amount of polish is required, do not use excessive force when polishing as the finish can be removed... SM battery door cleaning.pdf

    New wireless TX deviation rules October '18

    Correct, Venue 2 has no issues. Correct, only transmitters impacted. The SMWBs are 75kHz in the US, this will be changing to 50kHz in the future after re-submission for compliance. This will not be required to be changed on the existing units, but firmware will be available to limit the deviation to 50kHz if desired.

    New wireless TX deviation rules October '18

    Our plan is to release firmware that allows for both European (50KHz) and North American (75KHz) hybrid modes for the original Venue...

    UCR411a select buttons beep

    We have heard this occasionally when signals from the display (or button presses) find there way into the oscillator and "modulate" the first conversion oscillator. If your display cable is routed near the oscillator cover (1st photograph) try routing as shown in the second photograph shown here. Follow the tutorial shown on our website (up to step 7) to get access to the display cable: http://www.lectrosonics.com/US/Service-Bulletins/sb1005-lcd-display-module-pn-48353-replacement-instructions-for-ucr-series.html

    Lectro SRc front end

    Hi Nick, Larry asked me to jump in here. The front end bandwidth varies slightly with the frequency in use; however 15 MHz would be an accurate number. In regards to frequency selection: One channel doesn't have to be higher. It is just that there are certain relationships between the channels which are problematic. The firmware will alert if you happen to hit on one. The formula for failure on an SRB (and SRC) is 4.2 <= (ch2 - ch1) <= 4.8. Notice that any time ch1 is higher, this relationship becomes impossible, but there are many, many combinations with ch1 lower that work, too. On the SRB and SRC, if channel 1 is set exactly 4.5MHz lower than channel 2 then both the 1st conversion oscillators are set to the same frequency and an audible beat frequency can be heard. On the SR and SRA if channel 1 is set exactly 4.5MHz higher than channel 2 then both 1st conversion oscillators are set to the same frequency. If you set the receiver to the "bad" combination you will see the message "FREQ WARNING" on the display. Best regards, Dean Slotness

    Wireless Distortion Issue - UCR211 & OST 801

    Sounds like you are describing compandor noise. Try turning the transmitter gain up and the receiver output down, this will improve the signal to noise ratio and the compandor sound should be reduced. See details regarding signal to noise here: http://www.lectrosonics.com/Support/Wireless/tn1016-transmitter-audio-gain-vs-signal-to-noise-ratio.html

    UCR 190 loose XLR

    UCR211, 411, 411a XLR insert tightening tutorial.pdf Glad I could be of some assistance. I added a couple more steps to the tutorial to (hopefully) help with the odd stubborn unit... Best, Dean

    UCR 190 loose XLR

    UCR211, 411, 411a XLR insert tightening tutorial.pdf Usually when we see loose XLR connectors on the UCR211, etc. the fault is a loose hex screw. The issue could also be the XLR insert itself. See the short photo tutorial on correcting this issue. Best regards, Dean Slotness Note: Slight edit to the tutorial to show the XLR adjustment required to get the proper battery door tension. BTW, a loose XLR insert or thimble should be corrected as soon as possible to prevent the XLR from being pulled out of the receiver. If the XLR is forcibly pulled from the receiver the wiring from the circuit board to the connector is likely to break...
