Question about AKG C418 Professional Microphone
How do I determine whether or not the 418's diaphragm is working? I've already determined continuity in the internal wiring.
Most people do no use just one C418. If you have another C418 or other model from the MicroMic series, borrow the PCB located inside the XLR housing. Replace the board on the defective C418. If the mic now works, the original PCB is defective. If it doesn't, it is safe to assume that the capsule is fried.
Replacement parts are available from AKG at 818 920-3279. When soldering a capsule, use the hottest solder iron possible. Iron contact with the solder terminals longer than two seconds can burh up the capsule. The faster you can flow the solder and remove the iron, the less likely you will damage the new capsule. Be sure to use a heat sink to dissipate the heat as fast as possible.

It works its probably just that you dont have your drivers set up right same problem here with my usb mic you gotta go into sound and change the standard mic to the mic you want to use and if you have a web cam mic also hooked up you will want to disable web cam mic (not the web cam) in drivers these 2 mics are having conflict of interest
