    The receiver is lighting up i guess is what i meant. It scans thru the channels, etc. We used the mic for a awhile and then stored it (not in the case) and now it is not working. I seem to remember the green light on the mic coming on when it was working and then you could mute in and the light would go orange. So how do i find out if the cartirdge is the problem?

On some mics, one of the lights will NOT turn on unless the battery is low. The mic is the transmitter, so I am not sure what you mean by it not lighting, but the transmitter is lighting?

Make sure the mic's freq. is within the scanned range of the receivers. Often the mics get mixed with other receivers and the resulting pair are incompatible.

The receiver should show if signal is being received. If it is, then the module in the microphone dynamic cartridge MIGHT have been damaged. If it is damaged, it has to be replaced.

    OK... The mic should have a green light if it is on... I don't know which model you have. If the green light doesn't come on the transmitter is probably NOT getting power. Check the battery connections... as I recall the negative connection on these mics where the battery goes can get broken or sprung open and not make contact. We have that problem at our church. Inspect both contacts. Until we get the green light on it won't work... The module is probably OK. Also look for corrosion on the terminals.



    The receiver will scan until it locks to the transmitter in the mic.

My Shure mics work fine but two bodypacks are not working. Are there fixable parts in there?


Try switching mic's with known good system. The small diameter cable going to headset and lav mic's are easily damaged. If the mic feeding the bodypack is good, fresh battery, mute disengaged and channels set properly then it's Shure factory service time.

Is sm58 wireless mic compatible t4a receiver-shure


The "SM58" is just the cartridge on the top. It would depend on the model of handheld transmitter. The model number is on a sticker in the battery compartment.

How do you get a shure ut4 diversity receiver to work with or receive a wireless sm58 Shure mic?


"SM58" is just the cartridge. You need to look at the model number inside the battery compartment. The UT4 receiver will only work with a UT2 transmitter. They must both be on the same exact frequency.

With the -10dB pad setting, still get distortion with loud singers using SLX Wireless Microphone. Need a mod to say -20dB pad. thanks


Yes I have this exact problem myself. Work for nightclub and our original Shure wireless was fine and we replaced it with an slx. We have MCs that really yell into the mic. I'm gonna try and find an older 58 capsule to pit on it and see how that goes. The mic would probally be fine with normal singers.

How to make Shure wireless mic work with Azden 305


Sorry, that is not possible. Different manufacturers use different companding, noise reduction, and squelch schemes. Thus, even if they are on the same frequency, you might not get any audio or the audio might sound quite funny.

Hi,

Please check if the gain in the microphone is open.
Ther's a little hole where you can adjust the gain.
