Shure RXT-4 cartridge wiring diagram

I had a Realistic turntable shipped to me but when it arrived the it was in pieces. It had a Shure RXT-4 cartridge that was completely dislodged and the mounting hardware broken. I was able to glue the mount and cartridge back together but the wiring was also disconnected from both ends. Basically I need to know the wiring diagram to reconnect the cartridge to the head mount (the color codes are only on the cartridge). Also, if you could recommend a new stylus it would be helpful.

LP Gear will have the replacement stylus/needle. The Shure N97HE replacement stylus will fit the RXT-4.

I think I have this because I have a turn table with that cartridge, but I don't know where to buy the replacement needle/cartridge. Any help?

Looking at both the turntable and the "Shure" Premier cartridge it looks like they both have the screw type of fixing that fits to the underside of the Headshell. So I would say yes. But have a look at both of them on the internet before you buy.
PS you have to add "Shure" or "record cartridge" when searching for Premier cartridges otherwise it comes up with printer cartridges.

Shure SM58 not working. Tried on various pieces of equipment using various configurations of cables and not a sound. Took unit apart and all wiring appears to be intact. The mic has been unused for several...

The SM58 is a dynamic mic. It's actually a very simple device. Thus, it doesn't "degrade". If an SM58 fails, it usually fails catastrophically. Now, the problem for is that you don't know if the failure is in the handle (which includes a transformer) or the cartridge).

You can order a replacement cartridge from Shure and solder it in place, but might be better for you to just send the mic to Shure. I believe they will just replace the mic with a new one for their service fee.

The sound of the ''shure m44-7'' only sends a signal to the left side of my headphones and master. the cables are wired in the good colour and seem to be steady, what else could it be?

If you are only getting sound from one channel try reversing the left and right channel cables from the turntable to the Preamp/Amplifier. If the sound switches channels in your headphones then the cartridge or the cables from the cartridge to the preamp in the turntable have a problem. If the same channel has sound, did not change channels, then you have a problem with the preamp or headphones. If the headphones work with another input, radio, cd, etc, then the headphones are good and the problem is in the preamp unit.

I have a shure ulx2-j1 transmitter the two wires came loose from the body when the head was taken off how do i take it apart to resolder the wires back

You will need to obtain a wiring diagram from the Shure site. Try here: The cartridge body of the mike screws on to the main body. The XLR jack can be removed by turning the flat headed screw clockwise through the access hole on the side of the mike at the bottom of the body. The windscreen also screws off the cartridge body on the mike but won't help you to access the wiring. Unless it is the wiring from the cartridge to the body or the wiring from the body to the jack you are better off having it professionally serviced.

How to install shure m44-7 cartridge on technic sl 1200.ive aproblem with the wt.,as i feel the shure cartridge is lighter then other cartridges do ihave to install extra wt. with the cartridge

No, you should not need to install extra weights. Adjust the tomearm counterweight (on the back of the tonearm).
Install new cartridge.
Set tracking force dial to zero.
Adjust counter weight so tonearm floats vertically. This is the balance point.
Dial in tracking force, 1 to 3 grams.
If you cannot achieve balance point then you may have to add weight between the cartridge and the cartridge mount
