There aare three wires in the inside that go from the microphone down the shaftto the connector that plugs into the mixer . the wire came disconceted from the connector. now to fix this i would need to soilder them back one the wire colors are white, red, black and one that is not colord there are three prongs to soilder too that are labeled 1 2 3 if you can let me know what goes where it would be appr. thank you

What connector are you working with there ?
And is this for a radio or for a normal mixer...?
Usually we use XLRs, and they have 3 pins.
If that is a Tuchell from the old ages, you have to re-wire.
Let me know....
Some ...what you may consider silly stuff...
1 check the outlet that you are plugging your mixer into it may be bad. Not the wire but the plug in the wall may be bad, plug a hair dryer in on high if it runs for 60 seconds it ok.
2 check the plug of the mixer make sure it is not bent at the wall pins
3 open the rear of the mixer by removing the round cover at the rear of the mixer look for loose wires, sometimes the socket connectors on the speed switch break off.
4 there are three screws on the speed control switch that control the mixer, sometimes after time these screws can actually turn due to vibration and the mixer will just not start....so.....start with the top right screw and turn it counter clock wise a quarter turn and start the mixer if it starts even for a half a second then the problem is in the switch. and your only problem is the proper timing set by the three screws.
5 gears inside the mixer can strip and freeze the motor so nothing turns...put your ear next to the machine mid way and turn it on ...if you hear a hum from inside then it is a gear problem.
6 If your machine is older then 1978 then it may be the IR filter inside the mixer (hard to find )
7 the carbon brushes that are located on the side of the mixer may have finally worn down (cheap fix) but there are four ways to put the new brushes into the machine and only one way works. You have to be careful with the beveled edge of the new brush and which way it fits back into the housing.
8 Now you are inside the mixer if everything else fails, the motor is the next step and it will require a full tear down, to repair, there are two parts the armature and the winding and each will take about thirty-five bucks to get and either or both will take about 2 hours to repair but if you go all the way down then you need a new gasket and gear grease clean and re-pack too. At this point you are performing an overhaul . let us know if this helps.
Sounds like the polarity. Easily corrected by swapping the red and black position of the wires inside the plug. Make sure there are no other power sources feeding the unit before removing the plug.(the white and green wires should not be moved. Easy way to remember wiring a three phase plug. Most are labeled on the inside of the plug with GXYZ. G is always the green ground wire. X-red (Indians were here first), Y- white ( then came the white man) Z- black ( then the black man)
These must be 3 phase mixers (electrically there are two choices, single and three phase) Three phase cables typically have 4 wires, black, white, red and green (green is ground of course) To reverse the rotation of your mixers you would have to swap two of the three colors, and it doesn't matter which two of the three you choose, DO NOT SWAP THE GREEN, LEAVE IT ALONE. for example, just change red and black wires where it they connect to the plug. Of course turn off the power, unplug the the mixer, and usually you can take the plug apart and reverse the wires. If your units are hardwired you should call an electrician in to do it, it will only take a couple of minutes.
You'll need a pre-amplifier, mixer board, or audio interface which can supply "phantom power" to the mic. The mic will not provide a signal without phantom power.
Next, you will need "XLR" microphone cable. These cables have three-prong shielded connectors on the ends, which keep electric noise to a minimum. You don't need fancy ones - the plain Jane store brand cables will work fine.
You need to connect it to a mixer first and from there to an amp/speaker combo. This microphone needs phantom power and you can only get it via the mixer. Also, you can control the volume via the mixer. Depends on what kind of speaker you have (active or passive) you will need an amplifier. If you're trying to plug it into a guitar amp, it won't work without a mixer. Plug the 3-prong xlr male cable into the input of the mixer. The 3-prong female xlr end goes into the mic.
The three pronged wire contains a green wire which is connected to the metal housing of the mixer. It sounds like either that wire is broken, or disconnected inside the mixer, or the service into which you are plugging the mixer does not have a ground wire connected to a proper ground.
Remove the rear cover and look for a green wire and make sure it is connected to the metal of the frame.
If it is then check the outlet you are using to ensure it is wired correctly.
Open the plug case by prying it apart.
The tiny circuit board is labelled on one side - three connectors for the headset and two for the microphone.
G - headset ground - red/gold wire
R - headset right - blue wire
L - heasdet left - red wire
This usually means that the ground wire has broken. Try a new balanced XLR microphone cable and see if the hum goes away. If it doesn't then the problem is either the microphone or the jack that you are plugging the cable into. If you are plugging into a mixer, make sure that the ground pin has not been removed from the power cord. Same thing with the amp that the mixer is plugged into etc. If you think it is the microphone have a look for a small hole on the side of the base of the microphone where the cable plugs into it. Use a small flat bladed screwdriver to tighten that screw in a counterclockwise direction. This will stop the jack in the microphone from wiggling. It also provides a ground for the body of the microphone. If that doesn't help, Try turning it in to remove the jack and examine the wiring. Do this gently. There should be 3 wires on this jack. It is an XLR jack. The wires should be 1= ground, 2= hot and 3= cold. SAme with the plugs on the cable. Hope this helps.
I am looking for the same wiring diagram. The headset Moto sells is a single earpiece with microphone, so how does that end up being a stereo connection Neto? Just curious how, or is there also a full headset with microphone? ( I dont' know, just asking)
Would this be a 4 ring TRS connector? Sleeve = ground, then left, right, and the tip as the microphone??
