Audio Input N/A

I just got my GoPro 3.5mm MIC adapter for my Hero5 Black.  I have two externam mic's - one is a Comica CVM-V01GP Lavalier Lapel Microphone and already have a Condenser SF-666 Microphone.  When I plug my mic's into the adapter (both are not powered) my GoPro shows N/A for the audio input.  I got my adapter straight from GoPro so I'm thinking the external mic's should work.

 

Does anyone know why neither of them work with my GoPro but work with all other devices?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Audio Input N/A

you recieved paper inside the pkg,. up to a person to follow suit?  I  reverted many times etc my firmware.  Try  to grab a  standard mic. and plug it in first, then the promic, then turn on hte mode On.   go to prefrence, scroll to imput mic and if still N/A   slightly pull the USB type C out  .  some have reported bad promics.
