Need help repairing N-soundtube PSU for AKG Mic


Define what you call the transformer. The microphone has a power supply in a separate enclosure. Usually the output has 7 pins to connect to the cable to the mic. First you need to verify that the cable is good. With a multimeter, check continuity of each end of each pin. If one pin has no connection, the replace the cabble and your problem will go away. Try this first, then if needed we'll talk about the power supply.

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
write_tip-jzzyfeyvjm4ftyhthvyxbacz-3-1.jpg

with two pliers, gently twist the two pieces of the capsule to unscew it.
write_tip-jzzyfeyvjm4ftyhthvyxbacz-3-3.jpg

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.
write_tip-jzzyfeyvjm4ftyhthvyxbacz-3-15.jpg

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.
write_tip-jzzyfeyvjm4ftyhthvyxbacz-3-28.jpg

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
write_tip-jzzyfeyvjm4ftyhthvyxbacz-3-36.jpg



write_tip-jzzyfeyvjm4ftyhthvyxbacz-3-45.jpg
Now your mic is (quite) new. Connect body pack or the phontom power injector and check it on your equipment.

Happy fixing :D

How can i repaire my kerboard of aser 5920


Remove sticky tape securing the keyboard cable to back of the keyboard.Part of the keyboard cable is glued to the keyboard. Carefully separate the cable from the keyboard.Start peeling off the aluminum protective film Remove the protective film. After the protective film is removed it's really hard to attach it back to the keyboard because it's deformed.Most laptop keyboards have some kind of plastic separators.
These separators secured on the back of the keyboard.
Plastic pins are melted on the back of the keyboard and retain separators in place.Push all plastic pins though wholes on the keyboard.Start removing the separator.The plastic separator has been removed.
Now you'll have to remove all key caps.
Before you start removing key caps, make a picture or xerocopy of the keyboard so you know the order in which keys are attached to the keyboard.In order to remove the key cap carefully lift it up with your fingers.Remove the key cap so the hinge underneath stays connected to the keyboard.
Some big keys have a different design.
In addition to the hinge, some big keys (Back space or Space bar for example) might have an additional support bracket.Remove the key cap with the support bracket. As you see, the key hinge stays connected to the keyboard.Some laptop keyboards might have blank covers on the left and right sides from the up arrow key.Lift up and remove the blank cover.All keyboard key caps and plastic separators have been removed.Now you can start removing key hinges - key lifting mechanisms.Carefully separate the key hinge from the keyboard.
Each key hinge has two parts - external and internal pieces.
When you remove the hinge, try to keep these parts connected to each other the same way they are connected on the keyboard.If the external and internal pieces got separated, you can assemble them together.If you following this guide to repair the keyboard, I would recommend to keep all hinges in the right order.
The keyboard has two sheets laying one on the top of another.
Remove the sheet with silicone (or rubber) nipples.Remove the second sheet with traces.Both sheets have been separated from the keyboard base.The sheet with traces has two layers and all traces are running between these layers.In order to access and repair traces you'll have to separate to layers from each other.The keyboard has been disassemble.
As you see it's not easy to disassemble a laptop keyboard and even harder to put it back together.
Is it worth repairing? Probably not. These days you can find a new laptop keyboard very cheap.

I have a MXL 990 studio mic which I recorded one no longerworks


Are you using the original cable for the mike? In order to use phantom power the XLR connectors have to be wired in balanced configuration. Pins 1,2 and 3 must be wired separately. If you use a cable with 1and 3 connected you could damage the phantom power supply and in some cases the microphone.

I need to output guitar and vocal separately. No matter how I hook it up guitar comes thru the vocal channel


Hi there. Use the "pan" pots to assign the guitar to left channel and all other pans to right channel. Also, turn all effects off or down all the way. (Effects return all the way down.
Thanks

My monitor turns yellow


Computer monitors get separate red, green and blue video signals from the computer, and if you lose the blue the result is a yellow picture. This can be caused by video card failure in the computer (very unlikely), a bad cable (fairly common), or trouble in the monitor (which is most likely what you have).

The usual problem with monitors is bad solder connections to the red, green and blue output devices. These are usually three separate transistors, but sometimes an integrated circuit that puts all three in one package is used. These outputs get pretty hot, and the heat can cause the connections on the circuit board to crack. Resoldering them usually fixes the trouble. (Sometimes the part actually fails, but bad connections are more common.)

The parts are normally in one of two places. Most commonly they are on the small circuit board you'll find right at the neck of the picture tube. Some monitors have them on the main circuit board. They may be mounted to metal heat sinks to help keep them cool. If you can identify them and resolder the connections, you'll probably get your normal picture back.
