SOURCE: HELP!!!!! SM58 (with switch) had no sound after slightly screwed

I would recommend returning the mic for factory warranty. It's the safest option. 

By trying to fix it yourself, you risk the wires becoming even more damaged. You would probably have to solder them back to the connectors. It takes a steady hand when trying to solder on a wire to a micrphone connector, (I've tried a few times). The fact that it's so tiny, and located very near the diaphragm, it is a very risky operation.

If you do manage to get them back in place, it is not likely that they will disconnect again if you use solder once you try to put the cap back on. The problem is that you should never open it again. Harsh punishment, especially if it's under warranty.

SOURCE: Reparing a Shure SM58

If your talking about the coilwires on the diaphragm, you have to be very good at soldering with a variable temperature contolled soldering station, good magnifiers and pretty much one shot a doing it. You will have to carefully remove the varnish from the wires and bridge the broken gap with more of the same diameter wire. You are better off replacing the capsule. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: re-solder shure sm58

Hi,

If you're careful, you can solder it yourself.
Just solder some thin wires to the lose ends.
After soldering use some cellotape to isolate the solderingjoint and to attach the wires to the element.
If you're not familiar with soldering tiny things, please don't. Any technician can fix it for you.

Good luck,
Gerard

No sound from my sm58 mic


The SM58 is a very rugged and reliable microphone and there are not many things to go wrong with it.
Assuming that you have tried using a different cable / amplifier to issolat ethe problem to teh microphone itself the most likely things are.
  1. A wire has come off inside - gently unscrew the top of the mic - lift it off carefully lift because the wires inside are quite short.
  2. A broken capsule - this usually results from dropping the mic on hard surfaces. Replacement capsules can be bought quite cheaply.Just tak careful note of the wiring order before disconnecting the old one.

I have two Shure sm58 mics that simply will not work...I do not know where to begin. How should I trouble shot?


If these are wired SM58 mics, they will probably need to be sent to Shure for repairs. The cost to repair is less than purchasing a new one, and they will usually just send you a new mic.

I have a shure sm58 wireless microphone when i switch it on everything seems normal but i dont have sound coming out of the receiver... after the troubleshoot i made i learned that the problem is the mic...


Unfortunately the sm58 capsule is very hard to get apart without damaging the contact surface.

You would have to take the contact side apart 1rst
bend all the little tabs away which hold the brass plated disk in place
then its a matter of edging the disk out....CAREFULL any scratch is bad!
Once you have the disk out you will need a 1/4" socket to remove the shaft bolt,
unsolder the green and yellow wires taking note where they were soldered.
Then the element can be pulled out.
What to after that, I'll let that up to you.
Be wary, you will void warranty.

Problem with SM58, no sound


Most likely cause is tiny copper windings from cartridge to the solder terminals has broken (dropped?). CAREFULLY check for a human hair sized wire leading from the cartridge to the solder terminals that may be broken. Soldering and general repair of these ultra fine wires should be performed by a steady hand and light touch. Once repaired, the capsule (element) itself should read 10-20 ohms when disconnected from the green / yellow wiring....Glen

Hi danny

There not that much to take apart on the sm58. On page 2 of the user manual there is a wiring diagram to reconnect wires. the grill wind filter part screws on. The socket on the bottom is secured with a screw.
