Sorry that the parts list is in German, but at least you can look at the visual, see how they are put together and order the parts. Although this microphone has been discontinued, parts should still be available from AKG.

See the pdf file at the following link:

You will also find the email address and phone number of the American distributor. You can also visit akg's website at:

My magicsing ET9k don't have power to turn on the mic

Check AC adapter for proper operation. Input and output voltages should be stamped into the plastic shell of the adapter, with most having a 12 to 24 volt D.C. output. You'll need a volt meter for testing...a cheap purchase at Radio Shack and worth the money. Volt meters also check continuity of wires or cables, resistance and let you know how much life is left in your batteries.

How do I take apart a beta52a?

Unscrew the grill and look for a plastic piece that holds the capsule in place. This plastic piece also can be unscrewed and will allow you to reach the PC board inside. Check for broken wiring (most common problem) but low output usually indicates a damaged mic capsule that must be replaced.

Microphone muffled

Try to talk with your lips touching the mic . If there is any improvement open the mic housing very carefully and bring the capsule as near as possible to the top part of the housing .
hope this helps.

Shure sm58 Wireless Capsule how to open

The Shure wireless mic that has the switches on the side is tricky to open. The first thing is to take the cover off the switches and do NOT lose the two buttons. To remove the plastic cover very CAREFULLY pry up with a knife point near the center from one side. There is a plastic tab at each end of the little plastic part that is easily broken. by prying at the center of one side these tabs are pulled in a little and will release. There is not much that is serviceable within the wireless part so it is kind of a moot point to open it. When installing the buttons back one has to align each before snapping the cover back on.

Hi, I'm trying to fit the polar pattern converter to my C1000S mic. I've removed the wire mesh part to reveal the shock mount and capsule but there seems to be a black plastic bit of a different shape...

Alan, the C1000s comes with 2 filters, and it sounds like one of them is already on the capsule. Yes you can remove the one already on. I find by gently twisting and pulling it comes off easily. The capsule is rubber mounted so it can take a little bit of pressure.

Passport 250 PD dropped face first and it loosened the inside speaker connection

I have experience with the original Passport 250 as leader of the design team. To get inside of the speaker cabinet, you will need to remove a couple of small screws that hold in the grille at the top and bottom of the cabinet face. Once these screws are removed, you will need to carefully pry out the grille from its pressure fit in the plastic noting how it is placed so you can reassemble the grill later. Once the grille is removed you will notice several holes located around the outer perimeter of the speaker panel. Inside these holes, you will find the screws that secure the front of the cabinet (part with speaker attached) with the back of the cabinet housing. Once you have all of the screws removed, you can separate the front panel from the housing and fix the wires or dislocated parts such as crossovers, etc.

Once repaired, use the reverse method to reassemble the cabinet. Don't tighten the cabinet screws excessively as they can strip the plastic.

I hope this repair works for you.

Shure Beta 58A wireless mic

Mmmm... The wires and the assembly is broken?
Sounds like you might have a trashed mic.
You can try to find a Shure dealer or a good music store to have them take a look at it.
I would suggest getting a new mic cartridge.
If you're interested in selling it, contact me.
