Quickstart

In order for the XPDm Digital Wireless System to work correctly, both the RXD1m receiver and HXD1 handheld or PXD1 beltpack transmitter must be paired together. (NOTE: The XPDm Digital Wireless System will come paired from the factory).
Follow this basic procedure for setting up and using your XPDm Digital Wireless System:

  1. Physically place the RXD1m receiver where it will be used. We suggest you keep receiver and transmitter within line of sight for optimal performance, meaning the performer using or wearing the transmitter can see the receiver.
  2. Connect the included power adapter to the RXD1m receiver before turning the power on. Turn the RXD1m on momentarily to confirm that it is receiving power, then turn it off (figure 1).
    SAMSON XPDm Digital Wireless System Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 13
  3. With your amplifier or mixer powered off and volume control down connect the RXD1m receiver output jack to the mic or line input using the balanced XLR output, unbalanced 1/4″ or 1/8″ output jacks. Turn the RXD1m power on but keep the volume at minimum level (figure 2).
    SAMSON XPDm Digital Wireless System Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 14
  4. Place a fresh set of AA (LR6) batteries in the transmitter’s battery compartment being sure to observe polarity markings (figure 3).
    SAMSON XPDm Digital Wireless System Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 15
  5. If the receiver and transmitter have not been previously paired press and hold the pair button on the RXD1m receiver for >3 seconds until the LED begins to flash (amber). Press and continue to hold the power button on the transmitter until the LED indicators on both units light steadily indicating that the receiver and transmitter are paired and ready for operation.(figure 4)
    SAMSON XPDm Digital Wireless System Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 16
  6. Turn on the connected amplifier or mixer but leave the PA system’s volume at the minimum level. Turn the volume control of your RXD1m fully clockwise, this is unity gain. Speak or sing into the microphone at a normal performance level while turning up the PA system’s volume control until you reach the desired output level.
  7. NOTE: Only two XPDm systems can be used within close proximity to each other.

Troubleshooting

Issue Solutions
No Audio Make sure that the transmitter and receiver are both powered on.
Ensure the transmitter’s batteries are installed correctly.
Check that the transmitter is not muted.
Confirm that the RXD1m adapter is correctly connected and plugged into an electrical outlet.
Turn on the RXD1m receiver.
Make sure the RXD1m audio output connections are securely seated into the jacks and that the cables are functioning.
Ensure that the receiver and transmitter are in line of sight with one another.
Check the receiver and audio input device level controls.
Ensure that the transmitter and receiver are paired. If unsure, follow the pairing explanation on page 11, #5.
Distorted Audio The receiver output level or audio input device level may be too high.
Check the transmitter’s batteries, and replace if low.
The input gain on the transmitter (PXD1/HXD1) or audio source output level may be too high.
Audio Dropout The transmitter may be too far away from the receiver. Move it closer to the receiver.
Remove any sources that may cause RF interference such as cell phones, cordless phones, lighting equipment, computers, metal structures, etc.
Receiver will not power on Check the adaptor to ensure it is properly connected and plugged into an outlet providing power.
Transmitter will not power on (LED does not light) Replace the transmitter batteries.
Noise or interference If using two systems, make sure both systems are paired together. If the problem persists, pair each system individually.
