  • Snap, Ouch! Sudden Microphone issues.

    Out of the blue, for no apparent reason, the microphones in my PA system have started zapping people if they get their mouths too close to the mics.  This didn't used to happen.  Any suggestions as to what's going on and how to stop it?

    You have a ground fault that needs to be found and fixed immediately....

      Thanks.  So, how do I go about doing that?

    Almost certainly static electricity with the lack of connection from the wireless to anything electrical.

      Thanks for the help everybody!  I (and my electrically singed lips) appreciate it.
