Here's a schematic that displays the assembly of your mics. You should only need a hex tool, jewelers screwdriver, and some patience.

I have the same prob with mine. I opened it and found that a little plastic thingy was loose UNDER the diaphram! I can't see any way, short of replacing the capsule, of fixing it. The mic works, sort of. It depends on the position you hold it. Not reliably!

I'm bummed.

Odds are the problem is the foam that usually surrounds the capsules in these mics. eventually it dries out and decays. you can replace it yourself (see the previous message concerning disassembly) with open-cell foam, or you can have an electro voice service repair center do it. i can't recommend one in oz; in the US, location sound in north hollywood does it, relatively inexpensively (~$50).

Basic settings for behringer mic2200

basic would be all dials in the middle. and appropriate switching on/off of (phantom power) +48volts. this option is required for condenser mics but way too strong of a signal for normal dynamic mics,like the shure SM 58. or any non-balanced input

I know that the m-audio nova is a studio recording microphone , but i would like to know why it is not recommended for stage use ?

I would guess that the mic is a condensor type. These mics are much more sensitive to transients, and they tend to pick up a lot of ambient sound around them. In contrast, dynamic mics, such as the Shure SM 58 have become the standard live mic because their pickup pattern and response tend to be concentrated close to the singer, thus rejecting the ambient noise that condensors pick up. The live sound environment is very different acoustically than the controlled studio environment, and therefore, mics are chosen to accommodate the different acoustics.

EV re-27 to a laptop what electrical connections?

Excellent microphone! There are a number of inexpensive XLR microphone to USB adapters now on the market. Two good ones are Blue's Icicle ($60 street) and Shure's X2u ($99 street) from vendors like Amazon and Zzounds. They operate with most audio software right out of the box.

I have two ev co9 mics, neither of them seem to work, where should I start???

These are fairly decent microphones.......I would suspect the cable might be bad. If the mikes are actually not working your best bet would probably be to replace them with a Shure SM 58. The Shures are the industry standard, and the EV co9's are Electro-Voices competition to Shure. If price is an issue, try the Samson R11. You can get three for $69, oppossed to around $100 for one SM58

Electrovoice RE20 will not work with my board...

If you've tried a different cable and it still doesn't work it probably the capsule.The capsule is available for $224.00 .If you send it in for repair it's only $200.00 and they give you a warranty.Contact Telex Communications @ 1 800 553 5992 and talk to a represenative and they will give you the info you need to send it in for repair.

I am not sure about this model of mic but it could be as easy as twisting off the bottom. There could also be a screw near the XLR jack that has to be removed, or tightened. Some mics have the XLR jack glued in pretty tightly. I am giving you suggestions based on other mics, I haven't touched a SR71. Hope that helps! Baze
