Re: 4pin Locking connecter to cable.

I suggest the obvious... Call Audio Technica to get the pinouts for this locking connector. I am an ex-dealer and I do not have them in my manual. Don't bother with the internet, call customer support.

Akg c4000b hum

usually humming is caused by defective cables. Check if the cable is wired correctly. Open both XLR plugs and check:
Pin 1 shield
Pin 2 hot (usually red wire)
Pin 3 cold (black, blue or whatever)
Pinnumbers are written near pins usually.
If that doesn't help shake the cable for contact issues.
The microphone could have a broken shield connections as well. Maybe there's a small screw near the XLR output connector. Unscrew (sometimes this screw needs to be turned CLOCKWISE) and check connections.

PR20 mic has three colored cables inside.. red black and yellow. the yellow has lost its solder. despite this it still works. what does the yellow cable do, and which prong inside should i re-solder it to?

Two of the wires are signal (1 is + the other is -). The third wire is ground. The two signal wires will go to either side of the mic diaphragm. (looks like a miniature speaker). The ground wire will usually go to the mic body. The colors could be proprietary to Heil so I'm not sure what they are based solely on color. If it's an "active" mic with an internal circuit board then there is no telling.

Typically the red and yellow would be the signal wires, the black would be the ground, however, as previously stated, this can not be guaranteed if Heil uses a proprietary setup.

The XLR came apart

The ground (shield) is connected at pin 1. I think that it's the white color cable.
The "in phase signal - hot" is connected to pin 2. It's the red color cable.
The "out of phase signal - cold" is connected to pin 3. It's the yellow color cable.
Your microphone is a dynamic one so there is no need for power supply and no worry about wrong connections.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Wires in the microphone at the point where you connect to the lead have come appart and i need to solder them back on, Black, red and white wires. Which in which order do i solder them onto the connecter...

There are many standards of microphone connectivity with 3 pin XLR (cannon) style plugs. It depends on where in the world you are as to the favoured standard,
Your microphone usesthe following::

1 ground (white) 2 +ve or hot (red) 3 -ve or return (black)
Another way to work out what wires connect to what, is to remove the cover of one of your XLR-XLR microphone cables exposing the connections it favours, plug the connector into the mics scoket , and use the connections to the cable guide you in resoldering the connections back on.
The same connections can be veiwed in the user manual here

Astatic noise canceling microphone to 4 pin cobra 29 ltd classic

According to the astatic wiring hand book it is not used. I would leave it terminated but long enough that if you find your having noise when you receive you could still ground it. I'm pretty sure you don't need it.
