How to set up a MPWL 1504 wireless mic to a tv

Depends on what inputs are available on your TV. If you have unused A/V inputs that use RCA style connectors you'll need an adapter cable to make it work. Those cables can be had at music stores or on line.

Repair lavalier microphone

Lavalier microphone usually breaks by the cable, near the clip, 'cause talents mess with it during shots. here you will understand how to fix it.

Don't know what is the brand of this mic, but if have one that is similar, quite shure it will be fixed in the same way.

Detach mic from body pack or by phantom power injector.
write_tip-jzzyfeyvjm4ftyhthvyxbacz-3-0.jpgCry for the mess your collegues make with mic cables ...

Detect the problem ... in this case is clear u have to cut a piece of cable and resolder the capsule

with two pliers, gently twist the two pieces of the capsule to unscew it.

Now you have access to the mic PCB, solder points etc.
write_tip-jzzyfeyvjm4ftyhthvyxbacz-3-6.jpgWhen you will cut the damaged part of the cable remember to re-set screen and vibration pad in the same order like it's now (use that hoto as reference).

Take note of where shield and signal are soldered (mic do not work if reverse biased or works very bad ... and could be damaged)write_tip-jzzyfeyvjm4ftyhthvyxbacz-3-10.jpg

Desolder the cable and cut the damaged part.

Strip the cable tip (and recycle the plastic cover to insulate ground shield.
Pre-solder signal and shield tips.
write_tip-jzzyfeyvjm4ftyhthvyxbacz-3-21.jpgSet on the cable bumper and screen NOW (if you removed them) :D

Carefull position cable in correct position (remember the polarity you noted before).
pre-soldered tips touching the right pcb position.
Gently position soldering iron on the tips. Soldering on both sides (cable tip and pcb) will fuse and make the electric contacts.

It's time to re-assemble the whole thing.
Make a knot on the cable or use a cable tie to add mechanical strenght to the cable :D

Now your mic is (quite) new. Connect body pack or the phontom power injector and check it on your equipment.

Happy fixing :D

How do I rewire my crown cm311a mic from mic to belt pack?

It looks like a mini XLR connection at the belt pack end, so that's easy. The cable goes to a connector block which looks like it is held together with two screws. Again, that should be fairly straightforward.

The other side of the block is the cable that goes up to the head set and boom mic. This looks a little trickier for a novice just because the mic capsule is small; the cable runs through a narrow diameter tube, and the cable routing involves heatshrink.

At a guess I'd say that the foam windshield will come off. There'll be a grub screw holding the collar in place.

Personally, I'd use a meter on continuity setting, upen up the XLR and connectors block, and test the two signal lines (pins 2 and 3 in the XLR) for a break. Fingers crossed it is in that section. Then replace that cable.

If it is in the boom arm section, and you feel confident dealing with threading the cable and using heat shrink then have a go. If not, take it to a Tech to avoid the risk of wrecking a great mic.

I have an rode nt1-a microphone, roland quad capture interface, but when im gonna record or put the input level i hear wind, i turn down the input volume all the way down, i still see the input signal

The Rode NT1A mic is a condenser mic and therefore it REQUIRES that "phantom" power be supplied by the mixer or amplifier. You will get only electronic "noise" if the mic is not receiving this power. Look up Phantom power to understand it. Essentially DC power is sent up the mic cable between the signal lines and the shield of the cable and is used by the electronics in the mic to amplify the signal from the condenser element.

Whenever i hold my shure mic there is this humming sound coming out of my speaker

You have a bad cable or incorrectely wired cable. The cable should have XLR connectors both ends. Verify that like numbered pins are connected end to end. The shoeld lead on pin 1 of the connectors is probably broken at one end.

I have a shure sm58 Beta that worked fine at my last gig but when I went to reuse it at last nights gig did not work at all, luckily I carry a spare.I hadn't dropped it so can't understand what had...

The possibility to create a problem with the phantom power is out of te question. The phantom power power CAN NOT harm any dynamic mic. Check the connectors and try with another cable.Make all the tests at low volume settings.

Hello My name si Christopher and I have a Sennheiser E815S microphone and was wanting to know how can I get it to work on my PC?

Christopher, your microphone is a dynamic type with XLR connector. This means that you can connect this microphone at your pc (at the mic in connector, the red one) using a cable with XLR female connector at one end and 3.5mm jack male connector at the other end (like this). Keep in mind that the 3.5mm male connector has to be a mono type, a stereo one will not work. In case you have the connectors and a suitable cable you can connect as follows:
YOU MUST CONNECT BOTH 1 & 3 pins from XLR side at the ground point of the jack.

The whole setup won;t give the best sound quality, but it's the simplest and cheapest way to use your mic and the pc. In case you need better quality, clarify me what you are trying to do order to give you some suggestions.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

How find orginal shure mic?how? and how to make cable? what is balance and unbalaned cable? better balence ya unblance cable

Unfortunately, there are many counterfeit Shure microphones out there. Each of the counterfeit manufacturers makes the fakes slightly different. Thus, there is no one thing to look for. The best thing to do is to purchase the mic from an authorized Shure dealer. Then, you can trust that it will be genuine.A balance cable has three wires (such as XLR connectors), and unbalance cable uses just two wires (such as a two conductor 1/4" connector.

Set-up wireless karaoke Mic.

I can't seem to find any technical details on the output specifications of the karaoke mic, but IF it outputs in consumer standard RCA format (a cable with two ends, one red and one white - often seen with a third yellow cable for video), then you should be able to plug it into the back of the receiver without trouble. Simply choose one of the audio connectors in the back to function as your microphone playback system - I suggest the DBS connector, unless you have a satellite system already plugged in.

Connect the Red RCA cable to the RIGHT channel port on your receiver and the White RCA cable to the LEFT channel (Red = Right). Now, select the DBS (or whatever port you plugged it into) using your receiver remote control. Hit the "ANALOG/DIGITAL" button on the remote until "ANALOG" mode is displayed.

If you want to connect the mics to a Karaoke system using the same receiver, simply unplug the White RCA cable from the Microphones, and plug in the White RCA cable from your karaoke device. Now, you'll get music playing from one side of the speakers, and mic playback from the other side, simulating the karaoke experience.

NOTE: If the microphones do not have a RCA plug on the back, please post a picture of the reverse of the Microphone receiver, and I will see what I can do to help you further.
