T430 does not receive sound from an audio cable (line in) connected to my church's sound mixer



The above header refers.


How can I resolve this issue?


I restarted the T430 with the audio cable left connected (as suggested by someone in an earlier post) and the issue is still present. The T430 prefers to pick sound from its in-built mic.


Your quick assistance in helping me resolve this issue would be much appreciated.

Hello and welcome,


I don't have a T430 but looking at the base spec and user's guide, it doesn't have a line in port.  It has a combo (stereo headphone + mono mic) port.


For anything like a line input you need a Y cable that splits the mic input and headphone output.  That would allow you to input mono, but I can't speak to the levels.  Whether the mic input tolerates mixer line levels I cant say.  Perhaps others here can address that.
