Question about Shure Beta 58A Professional Microphone

Internal wires separated from connector

Hi,
I was wondering if you can help since I get no response from Audio Technica. I own an Audio Technica ATM31a condenser microphone. Its internal plastic support which holds the connector of the microphone in place when connected to a XLR lead broke and allowed the connector to rotate freely and by doing so it separated the internal wires. I can reconnect them again but I have no idea which wire goes where. The condenser microphone uses either phantom power or an internal AA battery.
I hope you can help.
Best Regards

Wiring for atw-t52


The other is most likely a ground. However you should use a good magnifying glass and bright light to look for tale signs of the connection that is broken.

The microphone will not transmit. I tested the receiver with a body pak and it works fine. so the issue is in the mic. This was given to our small church and we really need to get it working.


A wireless mic uses batteries for power. Check the battery terminals and clean them (pencil eraser), also make sure that a new (check voltage with volt meter) battery is installed. Finger grease is one culprit which cannot be seen on the terminals. Batteries also leak and leave traces of "stuff" on the terminals. Any drop in voltage (because of dirt) will make that device stop working.

If it uses a 9 volt battery, check both wires going from the 9 volt connector - one might be broke (not connected). Checking if either of the wires is "loose" (broke) is easy.

Hope this helps.

You might consider sending it in to Audio technica for repair. They're really customer oriented and alot of times they'll repair and or replace for just cost of shipping. Try contacting them directly.

Need an internal wiring diagram (schematic) for an Audio-Technica AT822. I have a broken wire that I must reconnect.


After running a search online through 3 search engines, I cannot find a schematic for that microphone anywhere. Your best bet is to look and see if you can find something missing (a spot that's supposed to have a wire that doesn't). I'm going to have to apologize, but it's all trial and error at this point.

Sorry.

Need the wiring diagram for a audio-technica


I believe on the 4 pin connector of the pack, pin 1 is shield/ground and pin 2 is low impedance input. One of the other pins is bias voltage and the other is high impedance.

In the UNIT I had, there was a connection diagram someplace in the battery compartment, either on the cover or the case. As I recall it had poor conrast to read and find it so check closely.

Audio-Technica AT2020 low audio output


Pins 2&3 are the correct ones to use for checking the voice coil. Pin 1 is chassis ground and should always read infinite resistance to the other two.

That microphone has an impedance of 100 ohms, so if you are reading 30 ohms you clearly have a problem with the voice coil.

Good Luck

4pin Locking connecter to cable.


I suggest the obvious... Call Audio Technica to get the pinouts for this locking connector. I am an ex-dealer and I do not have them in my manual. Don't bother with the internet, call customer support.
