I haven't used the microphone for a long time, and now I am trying to use it and it doesn't want to turn on. I have tried three different kinds of cables and it is still not working. What should I do?

    It's a SHURE SM81, I paid a good amount of money for this and I'm shocked that it has just stopped working.

What is the equipment that you are plugging the mic into, and have you used the exact same setup successfully previous to this?

You have two year warranty, and if this is a factory defect they will replace the mic the same. Contact shure.

    there is a way to test the mic, u will need a digital volt meter has a Mili volt scale, touch it ro the mic connector jack on the positive and negatine ring, tap the mic, the meter should jump, if it doesn't then indeed the mic is defective, the other possiblity is a burned mic pre-amplifier in the amplifier input for the mic, it has to be one of those 2 things

I have two words for you...Phantom Power.

Electrete condenser mic's MUST have phantom power to operate. Look for "Phantom Power" button on your Jackie (surely means Mackie) and try it again BUT turn volume down before engaging phantom power or testing mic.

Has a mist in motor


A miss or mist? If it is mist, possibly radiator hose, heater hose, oil sending unit. What kind of fluid is it? If it is a miss then first thing would be change the spark plugs if they haven't been changed in a while. If it keeps missing after that try pulling the spark plug wires one at a time with some spark plug wire pliers. If you pull one and it doesn't make a difference then that is the cylinder that isn't working. Put a spark plug in that wire and see if it is firing by grounding the base of spark plug and watching it. If it doesn't fire first try putting on a spark plug wire, if that doesn't fix it, you must have a bad coil pack. If you have spark when doing the test above then maybe an injector that isn't working. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

I bought a soncm headphones sm-750mv but when I try to use the microphone it doesn't work. No manual.


This headset is pure bad. I have three and none of them worked. The manufacturer has no quality control or post production inspection. To fix the mic problem, open the earphone to which the mic is attached. You\'re likely to find that the mic wires are SHORTED together in a single piece of paper tape. Remove the tape, separate the wires and retape, assuming the tiny thin wires don\'t break in whic case you need to resolder the joins. Had the manufacturer any kind of QC, the faults would have been immediately obvious.

MOUSE WILL NOT WORK


You haven't said what kind of mouse you have or whether it used to work.
I'll offer some suggestions for the most common problems:
If it used to work but now doesn't, try a system restore back to when it did work.
If that doesn't work--are you using a wireless mouse? If so, are the batteries fresh and are they inserted correctly?
If you are using a wireless mouse, have you pushed the little "connect" button on the bottom?
You haven't said, but is the other mouse a wireless one or a USB mouse? If your USB mouse doesn't work, try another USB port. If you go into the device manager, do you see a "human interface device" or a "mouse" listed? If so, it will tell you the system recognizes the device. If that is missing, there is a good chance the mouse is dead.

I left my Shure 87a in the car for a 2 week period back in the winter. didn't realize it was there..i notice now it doesn't seem to have the same clear, powerful sound coming out when i use...


The headline has two different mics listed... a Shure 87a and a Beta 98/S... not sure which you really have... Normally leaving the mic in the car should NOT have affeected it, although you haven't told us the environment such as humid or immersed in water, etc. On the chance it may have had condensation I would put it over a hot-air register for a few days to insure there is no residual condensation .. DO NOT place in an oven to try to speed this up. If there is condensation on the diaphram it needs to evaporate and vent slowly. Also you can look for corrosion on the plug contacts.

Looked on 5 sites- inconclusive answers- sm 58 mic three posts on voice coil/ diaphragm, three wires leading to it. low imp use- connect which colors to which terminals? james


Try this.... Search google for: shure sm58 wiring diagram
In one of the results you will find diagram and colors in the upper left corner pix. If yours doesn't have those colors, congratulations, you have one of the counterfeit Shure mics that are being sold.
