The mic does not need a battery. But it does require phantom power. Contact the mixer manufacturer to find out how to turn on phantom power on your mixer.

Try using a mixing console with phantom power ( + 48 ). A condenser mic needs 48 volts to operate. The led should light when the XLR microphone cable is connected to a console with phantom power.

    Try using a console that has phantom power(48V) on the channel. that should solve the problem if not the mic is damaged internally and needs to be sent in. Check the Shure website for repair fees.

Why.....my two brand new Shure pg27's are BOTH dead...can I be THAT unlucky?? Or just dumb. I'd RATHER be dumb, hopefully I'm doing something wrong....but I'm trying to record with them in my Zoom R16. No...


The Shure PG27's are condenser mics. They need power. Since the mics don't have a battery compartment then the power has to come from the mixing console. Have you switched on 48V Phantom power?

When install a battery the mic stats but goes off before battery fully installed


The battery has to generate quite a bit of power to energise the plates in a condenser mic. So wasting energy by powering an LED when it's not really needed is a bad idea. The light 'blinks' to confirm that you switched it properly. After that, it will only blink again when you move the power switch to OFF unless there's some battery warning indication built in.

As for the mic not working; most of the time this is down to poor quality or broken cables; or incorrect connections; or the wrong settings on the receiver or mixing console.

My Shure mics work fine but two bodypacks are not working. Are there fixable parts in there?


Try switching mic's with known good system. The small diameter cable going to headset and lav mic's are easily damaged. If the mic feeding the bodypack is good, fresh battery, mute disengaged and channels set properly then it's Shure factory service time.

We are using a Shure PG58 wireless mic. It worked very well for about 1 year and then it would work on/off. Even when we put new batteries in the mic it still just goes dead. Any suggestions?


Unfortunately, there are many, many things that can cause a unit to be non-functional. Try calling Shure to get it repaired, or call Delta Audio at 773-764-3634. Delta Audio also repairs older Shure equipment.

I have a shure ULX-1m1 transmitter with full battery but will not work. screen comes up green nothing on the display and the battery light is red, what could this be? and how do I fix it


First, sometimes LCD screens have an intesity/angle control and at extreme range of these characters are sometimes not visible. Check you manual to see if your unit might have such a setting.

Also this unit has some control lockouts so make sure it is unlocked so the automatic frequency selection can be made.

Verify the status of the LED in your manual. MANY Shure mics display the LED red when battery is low.

DO NOT trust a battery as being full because it is new.

ALSO DO NOT USE rechargeable batteries in these as the rechargeable battery does NOT produce 9 volts... usually only 7.2 volts (in spite of the labeling) which is insufficient and will give a low battery indication.

Two screws on the back of the battery casing, then prise out the battery tray (it's a detachable moulded tray in the mic body) using a small screwdriver in the slot near the power button. Under the threads of the battery cover is screw which holds in the PCB, unscrew this. Take the full mic head off (not just the ball, but an inch further down with the capsule in it), and remove the circlip inside. The PCB then slides out towards the head end of the mic.
