Question about Radio Communications
The same thing happened with my old headset too. The audio through the headphones work fine, but the mic stops working. The mic gets to the point where I have to keep the cord in a certain position, or else the mic crackles, pops, and cuts out. Moving my head or moving the cord causes the mic to cut out and cause a lot of loud noise for those trying to listen to me. Is this an issue with the mic? The cord? My computer? How can I prevent this from happening again? Thank you.

Based on your post/description, it would seem that the cable of your head phone developed an open circuit somewhere. I would assume it is pretty near the headset itself. On most occasion, it is at the very entry point where the cable goes into the headset.
Normal repair would involve opening the side casing where the cable enters the headset, cutting the cable about 3 inches from entry point, strip exposing the three or 4 wires and reconnecting inside the stripped ends. Effectively what you have done is trim the cable a bit shorter eliminating hopefully the intermittent section.
Hope this be of help/idea, Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good l;uck and kind regards.

SOURCE: Loose Mic Head
Aahhh the joys of second hand gear. wow, the holes have been enlarged... may be that the original screws are not fitted to it also. OR less likely, mic may have become this way from years of being pulled in and out of a bag, with loose screws the whole time. It will rattle if the screws are a loose fit, can only suggest to you at this point try and get some new screws for it. or short on that (more drastic measure) to resecure the head of the mic with a small dap of clear nail varnish about each screw head. the varnish will hold well enough, but may present an issue getting the mic apart again, this depending entirley on how much of the stuff you have applied. Less is better :). other than that, there is not really a fix. Hope this advice helps you.

Simply replace the power supply with a working one to confirm power supply problem. If the power supply is the problem than ask your grandson to open the casing of the power supply unit and see if there are bulgy signs on the top of the capacitors, and replace them with the specific ones. This problems may arise because of defective components, it might be best to leave it to the technicians to do the repair. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: how to take apart
I figured out how to remove the headphone clip without causing cosmetic damage to the headphone casing. Unfortunately for me, this was after I had scratched up the casing already. Anyway, to avoid the cosmetic damage, use some kind of plastic tool, like a plastic spoon. After pulling off the headphone cushion, you will see the aforementioned 4 slots. Carefully slip the handle end of the spoon underneath one of the slots(not through them), and apply gentle pressure toward the center of the speaker. Do this for each of the 4 slots, and the tabs should easily come loose. Hope that helps.As for figuring out how to get the headphone to work, I'm waiting for that solution myself. The right headphone is out, but the left one works, none of the wires are loose, so the damage must be from my nephew being careless with the headset cable, and probably tugging on it once too often. Don't let your 15 year olds use your headsets, if they tend to be clumsy :)
