|Flashing green||Controls Locked|
|Flashing red||IR transmission in process|
|Glowing red||Battery power low|
|Pulsing Red on startup||Batteries dead (transmitter cannot be turned on until batteries are changed)|
|Pulsing Red after synchronization||Transmitter and receive incompatible; contact your Shure reseller|
Clip the transmitter to a belt or slide a guitar strap through the transmitter clip as shown.
For best results, slide the transmitter until the belt is pressed against the base of the clip.
Three gain settings are available on the PGX1. Choose the appropriate setting for your instrument.
If the receiver LED indicates the input volume is overloading the receiver, try switching the gain to a lower setting.
Access the gain adjustment switch by unscrewing the head of the microphone.
Two gain settings are available on the PGX2. Use the tip of a pen or a small screwdriver to move the switch.
Use the scan feature on the receiver to find a clear channel.
a LED screen displays current channel
b press channel button to scan for a clear channel
c system scans for the channel with the least interference
Synchronize the transmitter to the receiver by aligning the infrared (IR) ports and pressing the sync button. Make sure the IR ports are closely aligned.
After a successful sync, the transmitter LED momentarily flashes red and the receiver ready light illuminates.
Use the following steps to ensure the best performance when installing multiple wireless systems at the same location.
Note: Turn on any other digital equipment that could cause interference during the performance so it will be detected during the frequency scans in the following steps.
Using the receiver to scan for a channel is the best way to find the best frequency for your system. However, for multiple system setup, you may need to manually set the group number.
Locking the system controls prevents accidental muting or channel adjustment during performances.
To lock the controls: With the transmitter off, hold the power button down until the green LED flashes (~5 seconds)
To unlock the controls: With the transmitter on, hold the power button down until the green LED flashes (~5 seconds)
To lock the channel: Hold the channel button until the numbers flash (~10 seconds)
To unlock the channel: Hold the channel button until the numbers flash (~5 seconds)
