Have you tried using a another XLR cable..,or are the other mics phantom powered condensers..ie try to locate if its a mic problem or the cable..2 other points are 1 - XLR leads for phantom mics need to be XLR to XLR male to Female plugs[ends] 2- is that often an XLR to XLR cable will be not soldered or wired right,so that the power [phantom power is not getting to the mic] so ensure you have a proper cable for that job...Sorry i can't be more specific but from reading your problem all these issues come to mind..If you have ruled all these things out,then it could be the capsule or loose joint or component in the mic which means contact AKG,pro audio services or find a DIY mic person to help..G luck!!
Microphone capsules are very delicate and I'm afraid it sounds like you have broken yours and it will have to be replaced. Take the mike back to where you purchased it and see if you can get it serviced or if they can recommend someone locally who does that.
Aahhh the joys of second hand gear. wow, the holes have been enlarged... may be that the original screws are not fitted to it also. OR less likely, mic may have become this way from years of being pulled in and out of a bag, with loose screws the whole time. It will rattle if the screws are a loose fit, can only suggest to you at this point try and get some new screws for it. or short on that (more drastic measure) to resecure the head of the mic with a small dap of clear nail varnish about each screw head. the varnish will hold well enough, but may present an issue getting the mic apart again, this depending entirley on how much of the stuff you have applied. Less is better :). other than that, there is not really a fix. Hope this advice helps you.
