To open it look where the lead enters the microphone body you will see a circular rebate surrounding the connector, there are two notches opposite each other you will need to buy or make a tool to fit into the rebate and locate into the notches and simply unscrew. do not attempt to unscrew th body as you will damage the microphone..

Try grasping the grill part firmly with your left hand and the shell part with the Perception lettering with your right hand and twisting gently but firmly in a counterclockwise direction with your right hand. Do not force it as that might not be the way to do it. I can't see any set screws on the base in the photo I'm looking at. Also before you do that I would recommend testing your power supply first as unless the mike has been damaged in some way they are usually a very dependable brand.

AKG 120 to Tascam US-800 connection issues


There is no reason to use such a configuration with the US-800. I advise using a standard XLR mic cable. It's likely phantom power doesn't work over the 1/4" jacks.

How can you open an AKG 220 perception mic to repair it? the mic got knocked over and still works, but the inside seems loose, moving around from side to side.


at the bottom of the mic where the xlr connector is you'll find a ring screw with two notches. unscrew this and you con remove the lower housing. The upper housing is hold by 5 screws.

My akg perception 200 is not responding


Have you tried using a another XLR cable..,or are the other mics phantom powered condensers..ie try to locate if its a mic problem or the cable..2 other points are 1 - XLR leads for phantom mics need to be XLR to XLR male to Female plugs[ends] 2- is that often an XLR to XLR cable will be not soldered or wired right,so that the power [phantom power is not getting to the mic] so ensure you have a proper cable for that job...Sorry i can't be more specific but from reading your problem all these issues come to mind..If you have ruled all these things out,then it could be the capsule or loose joint or component in the mic which means contact AKG,pro audio services or find a DIY mic person to help..G luck!!

AKG Perception 200 Mic stopped working. I use it


The simple thing to check would be to see if your 48V phantom power switch on your mixer is turned on. Sometimes there is an individual button to turn it on and off for each channel strip. Good Luck

My AKG Perception 200 Cut the signal suddenly


Sounds like a loose connection. Try duct taping the microphone cable in place where it enters the microphone.

Microphone cuts out


If you tried other cords and other PAs the problem might be in the jack where the cord plugs into the mike. service@akg.com might also be able to give you more info.

AKG Perception 100 not working, at all


The problem is that your amp probably doesn't have phantom power. This mic requires phantom power to be supplied to it via the XLR connector. Most mixers and mic pres have that feature, but most guitar amps do not, I believe. Hope that helps...
