You've obviously checked battery strength, battery connection and volume settings for the dead mic...does the green transmit (RF) LED light when you turn the mic on? Does the red audio (AF) LED light when you talk into the mic? Best solution....buy a better quality wireless system ($85 wireless?!? ...no thanks).
Phantom power is used for microphones with "built-in" electronics. These mic's, receive a DC voltage through the mic cable that powers the internal electronics. I have never ran into wireless microphones that require Phanto power, so I will assume that your wireless problem(s) is being caused by something else. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_power
but I think it's something to do with the mic jack on the transmitter. Some units solder these connectors directly to the internal PC board and after a while, the solder connections break. Have a tech open it up and closely inspect the input jack's solder pads.
If the mic mute switch is not on and there is no red light in the mic arm then its likely you have a check in the 'mute mic' box in your sound manager. Open Volume control, choose options->properties-> recording. Check for checks in the boxes and remove them. Also make sure the slider for the mic is about half way up.
check the battery, if dead replace new. check the switch might be a cold solder or loose wire and finally check the condenser mic by placing a multitester to the two connectors of the mic with one wire from the mic desoldered. if there's a continuity, then its good. if there's no continuity the mic condenser is busted. go to radioshack and find replacement mic condenser.
