A common fault with all corded/cable microphones is that one of the wires inside the cable breaks.
- I am assuming you are talking about a cabled mic?

It's possible to repair the cable if you have a soldering iron. This is the cheapest way to fix your problem.
If you don't have one, suggest you buy a new cable from your local Shure stockist.

The other major fault that occurs with mic's is that they are dropped - and that will show the same symptoms as you have descibed above if it has been dropped a few times - especially onto hard surfaces or floors!

The cable will only cost a few £'s or $'s, should be less than 10.

Radio squeals when mic is keyed up and truck is not running. Why might this be

Check the SWR's and also Check that you have at least 10 amps or more on the power wires that you are connected to. if possible run + - wire from battery to radio and see if it squeals , 10 ga wire should work, if just a plain 40ch radio. if an export with more than 60watts you would need more amps. ...

when the vehicle is running it may be getting enough amps, but when it is off. there may be a loose connection or small wires and not enough amps.

Squeal problems
low amp draw - small wire.
High swr's

shorted mic cable wires/broken wires
loose grounds

I have a two yr. old 55sh series 2 that just quit working. Looking inside the on/off switch cover, there are no loose wires. What to do next?

If you do not have experience in repairing these mics, you should probably have a pro audio technician do the work. The problem is an open circuit in microphone's internal wiring; either the mic cartridge is dead, or one or more of the fine wires connecting it to the microphone output connector are disconnected. Sometimes the fault is caused by a bad solder connection, or a faulty switch. As I mentioned, unless you have experience with these items, you can permanently damage a potentially salvageable mic. A goos tech should be able to identify the problem in a few minutes, and if the mic is repairable, it should be a cheap fix. Worst case scenario, a dead cartridge replacement may cost half the price of a new mic. But then, it's essentially a new mic.

I have a scrolling problem. I think gear wheel is broken. What can I do to fix it? Is it possible to take gear wheel from the other mouse (I have old optical A4Tech mouse with PS/2 port)

You may want to open the mouse and see if there is any loose connections, with low cost mice sometimes it is easier to pay for a replacement but look for a loose connection first.

Computer will not turn on even though it is plugged into the outlet. Why? How can I fix this problem?

Are there any symptoms other than failure to turn on? Do you hear the computer 'trying' to do anything when you hit the power button?
If it simply does not turn on, and you've checked to ensure the outlet is still good to go, then it could only be one of two things that i can think of off-hand:
1. Power Supply is dead. If you have another desktop computer that you can borrow from, yank the power supply out of it, cross your fingers that they have the same plug, hook it up and try to turn on again. If it still fails to turn on then the good news is your power supply is most likely good, but your...
2. Connection between the power button and the motherboard is faulty/broken/loose/etc. In the front of your PC, usually paired with a USB slot or two, and mic/headphone jack, is a power button connected to a small board connected by a thin wire to the motherboard. This is like a remote-control for power button and such. If the wires come disconnected or loose, the power button simply won't say 'turn on' and you'll experience this problem.
Fortunately, a new power supply runs about $60 and a fixing a loose wire costs about 5 minutes. So this is not catastrophic. There are other things that could cause this such as catastrophic motherboard damage (like half of it missing, perhaps) but if something happened to the computer to cause something like that, you probably wouldn't be posting here as it wouldn't be such a mystery :P

88, hi- the problem your describing depends on whether the red keyup light stays on while it's breaking up. I'll give you some possibilities to check as all of these could cause what your describing.
1- A broken audio wire in the mic cord.
2- Dirty mic switch.
3- The mic jack starting to come loose/or has rotated.
4- Circuit board ground screws starting to come loose.
5- Make sure all coax and jumpers are screwed on tight.
Thats about all I can think of right now, one of these is causing your problem.
Hope this helps you out, let us know,, Mechanic
