If I hook another mic to the system it works fine but does not with the mic that came with it. I have tried boosting the levels on the camera, swapping channels, and switching from MIC to Line input to no avail. (Originally in MIC position and reverted back) I even tried hooking the mic up to my computer to see what I would get. If I put the level up to 100% and the Boost up full I barely get any level from the mic.
