Question about Shure SLX-2 Handheld Wireless UHF Transmitter SLX2B87AH5 Microphone

1 Answer

Fingernails have mangled the rubber on-off button. Replacement?

Bought 3 of these a year and a half to two years ago for my church.
The rubber on-off button on the PGX2 (616A-SLX2) has been destroyed by people using their sharp fingernails. The unit works fine aside from that.
Where can I get a replacement (maybe more than one) ???

    How do you replace them? How is the switch/LED cover removed so that the rubber button can be installed?

Hmmm...apparently this is a common problem. So common, all you have to do is call the Shure parts ordering line (800-516-2525 opt 3), and ask for the "rubber button" for the PGX2 (SLX2) handheld transmitter. They are 81 cents apiece, but with a $10 minimum, you will end up buying six (or more).

Our church wireless mic was dropped and the bezel as well as the power and mute buttons have dissappeared. I'm looking for a website or a way to obtain a manual so i can order the replacement pieces....


Go to this website:
http://www.shure.com/americas/support/service-repair/index.htm
at the bottom of the page there should be a section called "Replacement Parts" that has anything you could possibly look for. Shure is a small private company and has unbelievable customer service, so don't be afraid to call.

When recording the signal starts out great but then gets very quiet, sometimes there's a high pitch frequency too. Any ideas? It's 2nd hand but has been working fine for over 3 years.


Your capsule is gone, sorry. I've owned 2 NT2s that I bought over 5 years ago. Eventually the capsule goes and that was what happened to mine: "started working-got quiet-unwanted noise"
The first time it happened Rode replaced my capsule for a $50 flat rate repair fee (capsules are $300..what a great co.)
However I recently contacted them about the second one and they no longer have replacement parts.
They did offer to give me a discount on a new mic if I sent the broken NT2 to them for parts.
It's too bad...I love those mics.

Hi, my NT2 has started having massive cuts in volume mid take and also it's generating a very high pitch frequency from time to time. Any ideas? Mike

My church bought 4 audio technica free way 700 series microphones about a year ago and from the beginning we had problems with them. Now only one of them is working! There is no warranty and we really need...


Audio Technica is generally a good brand name in microphones, but sometimes if you talk to musicians they tend to favor names they are familiar with like Sure. In the church, school, venue world, audio technica is respected. I work audio in three separate venues and we have no trouble with our audio technica microphones.

Have you adjusted the channels--and have you tried to do so manually? Have plugged the working one into the same inputs the nonworking ones were plugged into? I know it sounds like a simple thing to ask, but sometimes the connections to the sound board are the issue. If you have the more advanced receiver for the freeway 700, there are other adjustments designed to allow you to adjust between guitar and voice. If it is preset to guitar it will not sound good for voice. You may have to change that. I am assuming you put in new batteries, but ifyou have not, you may want to try that as wireless mics use up batteries quickly.

Those are a few possibilities. If it is the actual unit, then you can look inside and see if something is loose, but as far as repair, that gets into a whole issue. Hopefully something above helps solve the problem

Wireless microphone receiver ready light or audio indicator nogo


It is definitely a Sync issue.

1) Make certain the microphone is ON and the light on it is green.
2) Remove the battery cover from the microphone.
3) point the **** end of the microphone (where it says Sync) toward the Sync button the receiver (about 6-8 inches away).
4) Press the Sync button on the receiver. You should notice the light on the microphone flash.

If this still does not work, call Shure Applications at 847-600-8440.

Popping over the house speakers.


Has it always done this or recently started?
Try to determine if the popping is coming from the words spoken into it, or if you get popping from simply moving the mic and cable around. if you get popping from simple movement, there is a chance that the mic needs to be replaced. We use these in our church, and over the last 6 years I've had to replace about 6 of them...sometimes they go bad in the wire, sometimes inside of the mic. The wires are so thin, excessive use wears them out sometimes. Depending on the model countryman that you are using...I've seen them become disconnected where the mic. meets the wire...some can disconnect here beneath a rubber coupling...if you have this model, make sure that it is properly seated.
If there are no shorts in the mic or cable, and you only hear the popping while speaking into it, you may need to filter out the low end on this channel only (everything below about 120hz - 180hz)...and try using a wind shield to help control this.
Hard to troubleshoot without being there, but I hope this gives you a few good ideas.
