    While the white, green and brown wires were still in place, I have another wire in the shaft of the microphone. A black one, this comes from the minus side of the battery compartment and is hanging loose. I do not know where this wire is supposed to connect to, so if you read my answer, although more than a year later, please check if you have a black wire in there as well and where it connects to.

    It connects to the same pin that the white wire goes into.

My microphone has has disconected from the plug, how do i fix it,the wire

It can be replaced, but if you are not used to a solder iron, I'd recomend buying a new cable off the shelf. Either female XLR to male XLR or Female Xlr to TS (large 1/4inch jack) depending on what you wish to plug into

The inside (3 pin input) came out of my microphone when i was takeing out a leed and ive lost the part?

Go to your local pro audio store(or good seller on ebay) and buy an new male xlr connector, the insert should fit the mic,
wiring will be to pins 2 and 3
ground is picked by the fixing screw

This is assuming you can solder, if not then take the mic to your audio store/repair shop.

Hope this helps,thanks for using FixYa

How many wires should be going from on/off switch on Shure BG 1.1 to the base connector

I think there should be two wires that go from switch to the XLR connector, a blue and yellow wire.

Shure 58 when plug it has no sound

First i would check the cable. If cable seems good I would buy some contact cleaner and try cleaning the xlr pins on the bottom of the mic. Last i would take the set screw out of the side of the mic and carefully remove the xlr assembly. There are 2 wires connected to that and not a whole lot of slack so be careful. Basically make sure they are still soldered on.

Shure SM2 Headset/Mic wiring

Headset connection: Blue wire to Pin 2, White wire to Pin 1, Yellow wire to Pin 3. Connect Pins 1 & 2.
Microphone connection: Black wire to Pin 3. Red wire to Pin 2. Ground wire to Pin 1.
I am using a male/female 7-pin XLR connector assembly to black box. I am using two 3-pin XLR connectors, one for SM2 microphone function, one for SM2 headset function.

Shure SM57 Wire broken off

On the XLR end, you should see a small screw hole. This screw is reverse threaded. In other words to make it go into the mic, you need to turn it counter-clockwise. Once that screw is inside the shaft, the XLR connector should come out. You may need to pull it out using needle-nose pliers. Pull carefully so you don't break the wires.
