I've had my Rebel T6i for over 2 years now and have always used the same lapel mic when filming. I have never had
any problems with the mic or the sound quality until this past week when I went to record and the sound wasn't working at
all from the external mic (the built in mic doesn't have any problems working).
I thought my lapel had simply bit the dust (it was a cheap mic), so I purchased a new external microphone (Takstar brand), only to find that it doesn't work either.
I have changed the menu items from auto to manual (and back again, because it didn't result in any changes), I have made sure the plugs are completely plugged in -- yet still get absolutely no sound (and yep -- rechecked to make sure all the external mic devices I was testing with were turned "on").
Any advice or help?
