Despite the fairly low count of semiconductors used in your mike, you have managed to find a thermally sensitive serial number. If you want to confirm this, stop by at an electronics supply store (if in the US, Radio Shack for example) and pick up a can of 'freeze spray.'

When your microphone starts to misbehave again, spray the housing (not directly into the diaphragm) and see if it comes back to life. Give it 30-40 seconds since the innards will only feel the cold after some lagtime.
If it does, I suspect the cost of repairing it is greater than the ~$55 US I have seen advertised for this model.
You can always reserve this one for winter outdoor events. - (I know, it's not funny.)

I plug the microphone into my mac using a usb adapter, and it recognizes me turning on/off the mic, but not my voice when I talk into it.

You need Phantom power for condenser mikes.
No mac gives that.
Use a dynamic mike and try, now you know.

I've had a Marshall MXL 2001 mic for seven or eight years, and it's worked without a problem. Yesterday, it stopped working. I opened it and don't see any loose wires. Where should I take it for repairs?

mics are very delicate . a lot bundled into a small area. If you are handy..take it apart. All you may be able to do is check for loose solder joints..mics are dropped, moved a lot so they go through a lot of physical stress. My last mic repair ended up being a bunch of loose solder connections. if not..if its of value to you..send it in. Trace Electronicss..Canada.

The MXL 990 requires phantom power. You can use a Phantom Power Supply available at a music store or online music store.

I have a MXL 990 studio mic which I recorded one no longerworks

Are you using the original cable for the mike? In order to use phantom power the XLR connectors have to be wired in balanced configuration. Pins 1,2 and 3 must be wired separately. If you use a cable with 1and 3 connected you could damage the phantom power supply and in some cases the microphone.

Trying to get my Marshall to work for first time!

Hi! you are trying to bite off a bit more than can be chewed at once.

you need to troubleshoot backwards
Step1:- check normal playback. Sometimes the speakers (headphones)are not properly connected or the sound card needs to be ascertained. Just playback anything and eliminate this stage as a potential problem

Step2: We have now ascertained that the playback is not an issue,Now we need to check the USB hub - Computer connectivity. Try to connect someother USB device like a pen drive ascertain that this section is working. If it isnt go to strat - settings -control panel- Administrative services- computer management - Device management - and configure the USB Hub

Step 3: Having ascertained that the USB Hub is indeed wiorking connect MBox to the USB hub and load driver software open page, start- settings-control panel - Administrative services - computer management - device managment and check thet the driver is installed and working properly.

Thats it it should work fine if the above steps have been completed.
