trying to monitor audio with headphones

I give up.... trying to monitor audio with headphones. Set the left switch to mix and the right switch to 3/4, plugged in the headphones and ... nothing. Read the manual a coupla hundred times and there is not much there. The LCD shows a video signal being input from the wireless, can even adjust levels.

Any suggestions

Thanks

Jim

is your monitor wheel (next to the alarm wheel near the top front on the eyepiece side) turned up?

What channels are you trying to monitor? You set the left switch to 'mix' and depending on the position of the right switch, you'll get a mix of channels 1 and 2 OR 3 and 4.

If you put the left switch to the top position, you separate the channels and you'll hear channel 1 OR channel 3 depending on whether the right switch is up or down.

If you put the left switch to the bottom position, you again separate the channels and the right hand switch now allows you to monitor channel 2 OR channel 4.

It might help to look at it this way. If the right hand switch is in the upper 1/2 position, use the labeling on the left side of the first switch to determine what you hear. If the right hand switch is in the lower 3/4 position, then the labeling on the right side of the first switch will determine what you hear.

You cannot monitor all 4 channels simultaneously. You have to work with channel 1, 2, mix or channel 3.4 mix.

Hope this makes it a lighter shade of mud.

Oh yeah, there is that after you get the switches in the right position. (hehe)
