Hi ,
I am trying to connect external mic to Canon 77d but even after selecting 'Manual' settings the Boya mic is not working .

I'm not familiar with your exact mic, but I'll add that I recently purchased an inexpensive (45 US) mic on ebay for video recording and had an unexpected experience with it. Despite in-camera settings, it did not work on any of our five DSLRs, but it DID work just fine with my wife's M50 mirrorless camera. Plugging it into the DSLRS cut out the internal mics but gave no sound from the external. Plugging it into the M50 it worked fine.

I'm not saying that this is the solution, but we have two other external mics that include battery power and they work fine on ALL of the cameras. The new mic (which was returned, of course) did not have battery power.
