Question about Audio Technica Audio-Technica 3000 Series UniPak Lav/Instrument Wireless System Microphone

Open Question

Not sure of the model, but definitely an A-T mic - connected to a CHIAYO M-303T belt mic transmitter via an HRS (Hirose) connector. Cable fractured - I need help please to identify the cable core colours to connect. The cable has a screen and 4 cores - colours 2 x orange, 1 x light pink, 1 x very slightly darker pink. Screen is identified as GND and is connected to pin 1 and also to pin 2 to short out the 'guitar' input. The other connections I need to identify are audio out from the mic and B+. Can anyone please help me to identify which of the 4 cores is the B+ and which the audio out please. Thanks in advance. Ian McIver

    Further investigation suggests (I'm working from the connector end - I haven't disassembled the mic end) that the 2 orange cores and the 2 pink cores may be connected (Or-Or & Pk-Pk) together?
    The cable is marked 'audio-technica' at intervals along its length.
    This is a 'lapel' mic. The bias is supplied from within the belt clip Tx.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

SOURCE: Audio Technica PRO-35: need wiring diagram for mic end

If you feel the shield goes to the middle, try red on one terminal and white on the other. If not, reverse it.

If it's labeled on the circuit 1, pin 2, pin 3, then pin 1 is usually ground, pin 2 is hot (red), and pin 3 is cold.

SOURCE: I want to connect my AUDIO-TECHNICA, PRO 35cW

The round 4 pin connector is called a DIN plug. What you need is a Converter plug/socket/lead.
Please have a look at this ebay link below it shows you what you may need.
However what you need is a little unorthodox, and i wonder if you may need to wire it in directly? The XLR, has three pins, and the DIN has 4. (Only three are used though) So it is quite possible that one could simply joint them together.
A Microphone, only usually has two leads, and a shield. A Plus, and Negative, and shield, Earth, (Usually shield and Negative go together)
So as related you need a 4 pin DIN plug to an XLR adapter like the one shown in the link below.

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.

Short in wire at plug,cant take plug apart

The mic will disconnect from the transmitter. Simply push the black button and pull outward. Then, the black part of the connector unscrews from the silver part of the connector in order to get at the guts of the connector.

I have a DX98VHP that sounds like the PA is staying keyed up when I unkey the radio. It makes noise on receive and meter showes about 8 s-units. When it does this I can turn the power off and it still...

Your mic has a series of contacts which cut off the speaker before you transmit and activate the transmitter. If the mic has screws holding it together. With the radio power off. Open the mic and check the spacing between the contacts if it is not enclosed. Some are sealed in a casing. You want to verify that the contacts are not sticking or too close together allowing other functions to stay on.

If you cannot check the contacts. Unplug the mic connector. Get a copy of the mic wire functions and use an Ohm meter to verify that the speaker leads disconnect when the mic button is keyed. It should read "0" when the mic button is pressed. If not, then there is a problem in the mic button switch and you will need a new mic.

Carefully inspect the mic cable for wear breaks. The wires inside are easily damaged when the shielding is damaged. Cables can be repaired. Be sure to slide on two to three shrink tubes to cover the repair job when done. Slide on the tubes and heat them one at a time to create a good protective shield for the wires. This involves several solder connections which will need a small shrink tube on each wire solder. Electrical tape can be used but it will end up a large bulge in the cable afterwords. This should be considered a temporary repair since the strength of the mic cable will be compromised. Stretching the cable afterwords can result in a wire break.

Next check the connector where the mic attaches to the radio, Often there are two small screws which can be removed so you can check the wire connections. A lose wire may be making contact with another contact when the mic is moved around allowing the speaker to stay on during transmit. A small lose strand of wire will account for the noise. After a lot of use the contacts in the plug can become lose if you frequently stretch the cord pulling on the connector. If it is the problem make a note of the wire positions. Then remove the leads with a solder iron. Be careful not to overheat the small metal post as the posts are seated in a plastic mold which can be damaged when overheated. Slip shrink tubing onto the mic cable. If the clamp was not very snug use more than one piece of shrink tubing. Cut off the bare ends and strip back about a 16th (just enough to solder back on). Re-solder the fresh wires to the pins. Over time the wires going into the solder weaken and break. Make sure there are no lose wire strands which could touch another pin. Slide down the shrink tube as far as possible and heat with a match or lighter. Re-attach the clamp so that it holds the cable snugly.

If the problem is not in the mic switch, cable or connections, you will need to take the radio to a technician.

You can also check for mic related problems by using a known good mic. However it should be for the same model radio. Pin numbers and configurations vary between radios, even the same brand of radio. Just because it fits the connector does not mean it will work properly and can even damage the radio.

I am not able to use inbuilt mic and if i chat not able to coverse

By default your mic should have been working as intended when you purchased your laptop. It sounds to me like a bad configuration. However your mic is not built in to your webcam. It is hooked up directly to the motherboard via a cable connection.

Let's try a few things before you open it up and start digging in to your laptop.

First off, let's check the obvious. Start by going to the taskbar on you lower right hand corner and look for the icon with the speaker on it. Right click it and choose playback devices. Under the recording tab choose mic and highlight it. Now choose properties. On the next pop up window make sure that on the botton you have enabled your mic. It should say "use this device (enabled) and hit apply. If it doesn't the enable it.i If that still didn't fix the problem lets go to the next step. Under mic properties choose levels and make sure you have at least 50% of the mic level up and if needed boost up you dB level up to 20dB. Hit apply and try again.

If that still doesn't work you may have a bad mic or the cable that connects your mic to you main board might have come loose. In that case you would need to pry your power button cover to expose the connection and check it. Depending on your model this should be easy. This can be done with a very small flat head screw driver. It should be under the cover on the left hand side. Look for a two wire cable connector, if it's loose try to put it back in place. Be very careful when opening up your computer to avoid any damage. Good luck.

Tip: Try connecting an external mic, if it works chances are you have a bad mic in your laptop.

Wont turn on

Is the Mike an electret? Does it need a battery to work. If so try changing it or making sure it's inserted correctly. Does the on off switch feel sloppy and loose? If so it could need looking at. Also the wire for mics tends to take a beating. Check the connections on the plug end and make sure it's all connected OK. Don't forget a fracture can take place halfway along the cable in which case you'll need a multimeter. It will tell you if it's fractured but not exactly where the fracture is. If the mike gets it's voltage from the mixer or amplifier have you switched the phantom power on? If there's a plug and socket on the end of the mic also check that for fractures and again use the multimeter to measure continuity from one end to the other. Usually the braid is OK but check all wires anyway.

Where in the circuit is Mic On/Off switch located? In other words, what components are between the mic and the Mic switch?

The switch is between the Mic element and the output connector.
Depending on the type of microphone will determin how the switch is wired.

Mic is popping

It sounds to me like you have a short in the cable. Power up unit like normal and move the wires at each end of the cable, mic end and connector end, being careful not to move the mic. If you hear popping it's a bad cable. If not, now gently shake the mic, does it pop, then it's your mic's capsule and needs replacement.
