I have a soundstation IP 7000 with external microphones, but they don't work at all.
The main unit is great and we love it.
The main unit is not currently powered POE but just plugs in using the power supply provided
The Microphones don't have any lights on The microphones don't pick up sound even in the device diagnostic test
Am I doing something wrong? Have reflashed the unit with the latest software. Any help is much appreciated. Walter

Welcome to the Polycom Community.
I would refer you to your reseller as without looking at log Files it is hard to verify why the phone is not detecting the external mics. if you have a provisioning server, you can simply grab and have a look at the <mac-boot.log> and <mac-app.log> files.
You can open it in wordpad to see if you have usual activities.
It might probably be that you're using an incompatible microphone version or simply that the c-link cable is faulty. It would be good to test the mics on another SSIP7000 in case you have another unit or simply swap the c-link cable.
Same thing. Brand new unit - (custom installed into a conference room table) and Satellites don't work. Main difference is we ARE using POE. Sound test shows no activity. This is not something a mac-boot-log file will resolve. Plug them in - they should work. .... Seriously?
Had the same issue I plugged them in and nothing would work
Found out the issue is with the mic cable you need to have the part with the nub facing the table on both sides, then the mics will come on any other way they just do not work
welcome to the Polycom Community.
The clink cables should only be plugged in one way. Using excessive force can enable a user to plug them in the wrong way around.
Looking at the plug the mechanical design should show that is has a specific shape that should only plug in a certain way.
Thanks for following up on this older post so other users hopefully do not make the same mistake.

So this is the place to be if you need help with your system. The end user will get you on your way. As far as polycom support goes.....ITS A JOKE. Most cable to the external Mics come with a white tab taped to one end. Make sure this end is plugged into the main unit. Why they don’t display this, or explain it, OR even tell us to check this in the FIRST STEPS IN TROUBLE SHOOTING. Polycom support get some training. You waist a lot of peoples time!!!!
thank you very much for that VERY IMPORTANT tidbit!
white tab should face the unit!
Now our microphones are working!!!!
