    Which model is it?

    Are the transmitter and receiver set to the same channel?

    Also, is the volume on the receiver turned up enough? What's the squelch set at?

    i don't know too much about this. i just got it. i'll have to double check the model again....it was "something 5" and yes both the transmitter and the receiver are the same model. the battery is brand new and the volume on the receiver is turned up. the weird part is that when i turn the volume up on the receiver, the "hum" gets louder, but no sound is being played. i know it worked prior to me getting it because the guy i got it from is a good friend of mine. i've physically seen him play shows with it before.

    sorry if this sounds dumb, but what do you mean "squelch"??

    i tried to take it to a shop to get worked on, but they said they can fix anything except for samson kits. they said that samson does'nt supply them with parts.
