    Hi i was loaned out a Sennheiser ME66 Shotgun mic from my work. The mic was working fine until the mic stopped picking up audio normally. We checked the XLR and the camera and another shotgun mic and the ME66 was the problem. You can hear someone if they talk into the front of the mic but it sounds like a whisper. if i put on the windscreen the audio levels on the camera will rise but nothing else once i finish putting it on. Did i blow a fuse or something in the microphone?

    When you checked that the second mic worked OK, were you swapping out just the ME66 body or the K6 powering module and the mic cable as well? The symptoms you report are consistent either with a fault in the K6 or with one of the signal conductors shorting to ground in the mic cable or XLR connectors.
