Open it and look for any tiny, broken wires

Help with microphone

This doesn't sound good...mic cartridges are pretty fragile and is why I recommend buying quality mic's so that a few "drops" won't change the sound. That being said, the Sen MD431 is over $400 which should mean either you gave it one heck of an impact, or the mic has a manufacturing defect. Try returning for factory service BUT request an estimate B-4 repair.

The microphone is no power

This mic does require a longer power button "press" cycle...used during on and off in hopes you don't turn mic off or on accidentally. Check the battery, battery polarity and battery luck, then it's probably been dropped one time too many.

Hi i am using the audio technica at2035 condensor mic and the m audio mobile pre 2nd gen. audio interface. yesterday the mic was working fine with no problems but today for some reason i have to really...

This mic has a 10db pad or attenuator switch near the bottom of the barrel... make sure you haven't accidentally engaged it.

If that's not.... it try changing the lead. Also the power supply on your preamp could be failing.
These are a few cheap things to try before spending money for fixing.

Mic was dropped and quit working

you could open the bottom and check the wires are ok, then unscrew the capsule and check those wires are ok.
if you have a scope you could check the capsule.

if none of the above makes any sense then its dealer time, tech time.
These are very hardy mics I remember singers throwing these and dropping them all the time when i was at gigs. It may be it just fell the wrong way, but its worth checking the wires first.

Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

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.

Recently I dropped my Beta 87A mic and the 2 wires that connect the mic itself came disconnected from the mic. I want to know how to resolder the mic.Thanks in advance. Norbert

I take it they are the wires to the diaphragm not the cable (XLR) connector.Be very carefull when soldering the wires back on. A small solder iron with a pointed tip works best. The positve terminal should be marked with a small red dot.The red wire goes there and the black on the negative. Be carefull and take your time.
