You'll have to send it back to Yaesu for repair. I know it is going to cost more than you really want to pay, but it is so easy to damage the radio when you open it up. I know, I damaged my VX-5R trying to repair the antenna connector - it doesn't take much to make a mistake on those tiny mutiband handhelds. Electro-static discharge did it to mine. If you change antennas on your radio, always short the SMA connector with an alligator clip, then do the same to the antenna. Do this with the radio turned OFF. The surface mount technology they use to jam so much into such a small space is desined also to make it practically impossible for you to work on it. Sorry I couldn't be much help to you.

No sound through the speaker. when you try to key it up, sound comes out of the hand microphone

Try a different microphone. Could have a broken /frayed wire touching on the inside at the mic plug. or it could be plugged in the wrong way. I have seen mic plugs turned upside down and forced into the socket. if this doesn't solve your problem with a different mic. problem may lie in the radio. if its a small chasis radio there are small vertical boards that get loose. these can cause issues too. you can wiggle or press on the boards and everything works again. they just need to be re=soldered. some are very small you may want to take to someone to solder .

Mic plug wiring diagram for connex 3300

1- Shield (Ground)
2- Yellow (Audio)
3- Red (Transmit)
4- White (Receive)
This is the stock mic wiring but why bother just order a RoadKing 56 it is already wired for your radio. I suggest dont even consider a Skythumper it is cheaper but the quality is not there.

I need to spy on my fiance so what is the msn that make me spy without knowing him

I don't condone spying but what you need is a KEYLOGGER program. Where to find one and how to use it is up to you to look for. If you need to spy on the person you want to become your life partner, i think you should end the relationship and find someone else.

I've had a Marshall MXL 2001 mic for seven or eight years, and it's worked without a problem. Yesterday, it stopped working. I opened it and don't see any loose wires. Where should I take it for repairs?

mics are very delicate . a lot bundled into a small area. If you are handy..take it apart. All you may be able to do is check for loose solder joints..mics are dropped, moved a lot so they go through a lot of physical stress. My last mic repair ended up being a bunch of loose solder connections. if not..if its of value to you..send it in. Trace Electronicss..Canada.

My akg perception 200 is not responding

Have you tried using a another XLR cable..,or are the other mics phantom powered 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!!

Plug on cable bad the plug that attaches to the box at the end of the mic cable is bad..wondering if it is repairable or have to replace whole mic?..if repairable wondering how or who? in house or pro?? ...

If you have someone in your congregation that is handy with a soldering gun you are in luck. You probably have what is called an intermittent in the cable. If your cable can be a little shorter, have them cut the cable off a little ways from the plug so they can see what the original connections were. It should be fairly easy for them to strip the insulation off the wires and solder them to a new plug. I hope this helps you.

Mic does not work at all

Your problem is you bought it at walmart. I always say buy cheap get cheap. Go to best buy or a computer store and get a good mic. Before you do that try checking for a loose connection at the pc plug in. Also if anyone else uses your PC try checking your settings, someone may have turned the mic off.

Mic stopped working

Could be loose connection where the two wires connect to the circuit board. The mic looks like a small silver canister with two wires leading from it. Resolder if you are handy with electronics. Oherwise replace with a like mic from Radio Shack. Take the old one with you.
