Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Not getting any power in my 3-year-old Sennheiser MKE44P even with a fresh battery inserted.

Hi, my mic was working fine two weeks ago but when I hooked it up to the same setup this evening (Edirol R1) the power light didn't flash when I switched it on and the Edirol wasn't getting any signal from it. I tried a bunch of different batteries including some fresh from the packet and no joy. The battery contact on the capsule end is looking quite green so I gently wiped it over with a pencil eraser but no difference. It's been in its box the whole time since I last used it.
This was a big investment for me and I hope to get a few more years good use out of it!
Any thoughts?
Many thanks!

Battery acid is very corrosive and if you have had a leakage then the acid could have gotten further up into the mic and corroded some of the components, most likely a small power lead from the contact. It is always worth taking the battery out after use, a £3 battery can ruin £300 worth of kit.

Help with microphone


This doesn't sound good...mic cartridges are pretty fragile and is why I recommend buying quality mic's so that a few "drops" won't change the sound. That being said, the Sen MD431 is over $400 which should mean either you gave it one heck of an impact, or the mic has a manufacturing defect. Try returning for factory service BUT request an estimate B-4 repair.

Sennheiser ew 100 G2 cordless mic shuts off, low batt signal flashes , when fresh batteries are used. batteries inside mic heat up & get hot!


Heating up on replacing batteries is an indication of a short circuit.The construction of these cordless mic does not allow one to do any kind of repair. You will have to replace the whole circuit board which is available only with the authorized service center. And might cost you 70% the cost of the mic itself.

A couple weeks ago, after plugging my HP laptop back in after using it, I noticed that my battery did not start charging immediately. Since then, the power level in the battery has slowly been dropping...


Yes, you have come up with the right answer.

Most laptop batteries do well to last 1 year before they wear out. You have done very well to stretch out 3 years on this battery. Good work!

If you want some help finding a replacement battery, please reply with the full model number of the laptop and I'll track one down for you.

Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

No sound pickup


For a mic like sennheiser ME66\K6 prof.mic.you have two options.

What might cause the blinking of the light,might be the battery,cause it functions in two ways,either by battery or by phantom power that needs to be activated by +48v power phantom on your mixer before it can work properly .

So you will do is either you get a replacement of the battery on get a mixer that has +48v power phantom power.

Brand new Sennheiser RS140 headphones stopped working


Mine is a bit older (2yrs), but I have exactly the same problem. Absolutely no sound from the headphones (no beeps). I also tried new batteries, but still nothing.

If you have a solution, let me know!

On/off button fell off Sennheiser wireless mic


This is quite common with G2's, and really annoying!
If you are lucky, 50% of the time the red button is pushed inside the mic.
You need to remove the bottom section:
- open the battery compartment
- there should be 3 star-bit screws around the outside (remove)
- pull the bottom of the mic off

If the red button is not inside, they are available as a spare part from Sennheiser dealers.

Be carefull when putting the mic back together, it needs to line up correctly with the internal guides, forcing the base back on could damage the ribbon cable. when the line-up is correct it slides on very easily.

Best of luck.
