Question about Sennheiser SKM100 Wireless Handheld Transmitter SKM135G2B Microphone

Open Question

I own 4 SKM 100 g2 transmitters. I use them very seldom and just for my pleasure at home. It appears the coils are loose and make noise whenever the mics are shaken a bit. In addition, the bottom part that screws on to the upper casing part of the mic does not lock in place. Just as if the threads were worn out. Like I said before, I take real good care of these mics. Is this normal? What can I do?

SOURCE: On/off button fell off Sennheiser wireless mic

This is quite common with G2's, and really annoying!
If you are lucky, 50% of the time the red button is pushed inside the mic.
You need to remove the bottom section:
- open the battery compartment
- there should be 3 star-bit screws around the outside (remove)
- pull the bottom of the mic off

If the red button is not inside, they are available as a spare part from Sennheiser dealers.

Be carefull when putting the mic back together, it needs to line up correctly with the internal guides, forcing the base back on could damage the ribbon cable. when the line-up is correct it slides on very easily.

Best of luck.

SOURCE: Broken On/Off Switch

Yes, the switch is available from Sennheiser parts, and if you can get to it and know how to work with SMD's, it's quite easy.

SOURCE: ew100 g2 - getting a lot of distortion and must

Add a DI box to clean up/boost the signal of that mic. If all the channels are doing this, get a bigger (more watts) amp so that you have more headroom.

SOURCE: We have a Sennheiserew100 G2

Its not a RF problem.I could switch freqs all day long and it won't solve anything. The 3.5 mm plug does not make solid contact. When they start to go bad it sounds like a thunderstorn. It can't be depended on. Now we know why the broadcast industry refuses to use them.

The on-off button has fallen off. How is this repaired? How much would a repair cost?


It depends on who you go to for repair. What ever you do do not take it to your local radio shack.

I have a Sennheizer evolution g2 transmitter and reciever to go my Sony EX3 - but the input level is too low - could this have to do with the frequence I'm on?


Hi,

It got nothing to do with the frequenty.
You can adjust the microphone gain in the handheld-menu. You can also adjust the receiver-output gain in his own menu.

Good luck,

Need to fix loose wire inside 421 sennheiser how do you open it up?


Well, it looks like an SKM 100/g2 casing so if that is true, then unscrew the bottom part till you have access to the batteries and there are three star screws you'll need to take out right between the battery compartment and the bottom with the LCD screen. The bottom cover slides down and off. If you need the cartridge out then you unscrew the top of the mic where the actual pickup is and pull the core out through the top. That should be close, but might vary a little bit.

Sennheiser ew 100 g2 handheld microphone loose coil in capsule?


I had a similar problem with a sure sm 57 that I used on a guitar amp. I don't know if this is the correct fix but it worked for me. I took thin strips of paper to use as spacers and placed them evenly around the coil. I used a hot melt glue gun and placed 3 small drops around the edge of the coil. Remove the spacers and the coil should be secure.

We have a Sennheiserew100 G2 mic kit with a wireless lav mic and transmitter we use for a canon xh-a1. The shotgun mic has been prefect but the lav mic is creating a static/noise in the background but then...


This is probably interference in the wireless connection for the lavalier mic.
Try switching channels to find a clear one!
Or switch to a wired lav mic if that's practical.

JBL Eon G2 Speaker


from our experience rebuilding woofers once the lead wires get pulled too much or start to strain you have been running too much power into the woofer and making the cone move too far in and out.You need to cut the input signal from your preamp down and cut the volume down on the speaker input on you eon. We keep seeing too many of these amped speakers blown from too much signal.

Broken power switch


Hi,

If you have a G1 SKM100 mic, the small on/off switch is an SKQLLC Tact switch made by ALPS. I don't know what's in a G2 or anything about the ones with the orange button. I just replaced the on/off switch and it took about 20mins. It's a bit fiddly but not too bad so long as you have a reasonably fine-tipped soldering iron. If you're in the USA then it look like there are a number of distributors who will sell one-offs. I'm in the UK and had to go back to the place I originally bought the mic from (DM music), who got it from Sennheiser and then sold it to me. For some reason Sennheiser wouldn't sell it to me direct. Good luck.
