Shure beta 58a mic dismantle

How do I get into my beta 58a mike to re-solder the 2 leads back. The 3 pin plug pulled out when lead was removed.
I have unscrewed the grill and I see the insert inside rubber mounted. It is very tight. I think there may be a cir clip under the head?
I just want to re-solder the 2 leads and put the 3 pin assembly back and get on with it.
Can you please help

    Thanks for info but is now fixed.

    The problem was the leads were still attatched to the 3 pin XLR connector but came off inside off the little PCB below the insert. No soldering iron was small or long enough to reach in to resolder.

    thanks, anyway.

i have 58S, which should look very much alike.

if you can see a screw in a small recess near the tail (not the 2 screws over the switch), remove it.

it you do not find this screw, probably because you lost it, so the 3-pin socket came out. Also, there is a C shape insert, wriggle and raise it, it should pop out.

good luck!

The small screw you see near the tail is a left hand thread so to remove the three pin xlr you screw it anti-clockwise (the screw goes down) clockwise the screw comes up back into the hole securing the pin back into the casing.

How to replace D620 power jack? pwer jack is "loose" causing intermittent connection with power supply. the problem is "not" power cord.

The power jack is located on the motherboard. It is soldered to it. You have to remove the screws behind the laptop securing the back cover and disconnect the hard drive and GPU cables remove the keyboard so that you can pull out the motherboard. This is necessary since the solder joints are located under the motherboard and the jack is over it. There are 3 pins that are soldered. Remove the solder on all 3 and pull out the jack. Insert the pins of the new jack in the space vacated by the old pins and use a low diameter solder(2mm or less if available and lead free solder only) to solder the pins to the board and voila!

How to replace the grill element in a Stoves 720EF double oven?

1) Isolate the unit by turning the power off at the main switch.
2) Remove appliance from housing unit.
a) When handling the appliance care should be taken to ensure the outer frame trim is not damaged.
b) The appliance is secured into the housing unit by 2 screws through the top corners of the front frame, open the doors and unscrew the 2 corner screws.
c) Grasp the bottom of the frame, pull forward and out onto a suitable surface.
3) Unscrew the top and rear panel securing screws and lift the panels clear.
4) From the rear of the appliance, pull off the 4 (top) grill element leads and the earth lead.
5) From inside the oven unscrew the 2 screws from the grill mounting plate.
The above is from the Handbook. I assume from point 5 the element is then free to be removed. reverse the procedure to fit the new element.
If you want a copy of the Handbook, then I will need an email address for you.

Is there a way to open up a Shure Beta 58A?

Once you remove the grill, there is a C-Clip that holds the cartridge down into the handle. Use some c-clip pliers to pull the c-clip out of the handle. The c-clip will remain around the post on the cartridge, but that's ok.

Wires in the microphone at the point where you connect to the lead have come appart and i need to solder them back on, Black, red and white wires. Which in which order do i solder them onto the connecter...

There are many standards of microphone connectivity with 3 pin XLR (cannon) style plugs. It depends on where in the world you are as to the favoured standard,
Your microphone usesthe following::

1 ground (white) 2 +ve or hot (red) 3 -ve or return (black)
Another way to work out what wires connect to what, is to remove the cover of one of your XLR-XLR microphone cables exposing the connections it favours, plug the connector into the mics scoket , and use the connections to the cable guide you in resoldering the connections back on.
The same connections can be veiwed in the user manual here
Please rate this solution. Cheers

Tom Tom 1 Not charging.

I have had the same problem.
after carefully dismantling the unit I resoldered the connections to the power plug.( using a fine tipped soldering iron) I did this on both sides of the pcb.
Although the joints did not look to bad after re soldering and reassembly the unit has performed faultlesly ever since.
As you have to disconnect some sockets and remove pcb,s to do the job properly its best done by someone competent in this sort of work.
One thing to note that caught me out, make sure the lead from the internal antenna is connected as you put the unit back together

Shure beta 58

Benimur, you are correct, except that the Beta 58 is a condenser mic that required phantom power. In that case all 3 lines are used. Included below are the connections.

New cable for my Shure Beta 58A Professional

It could be the wiring in the 1/4" jack in your amp. Check the metal contact plates on the 1/4" jack in your amp and see if they are getting contact to the jack. Sometime they get bent.

If the XLR end of the cable can be serviced, check the ground connection to the cable and see if its good.
