Moving the mic, it can sometimes cut out my receiver reception. I think there must be a broken wire or short. How much would it cost to fix my headset?

SOURCE: My mic is broken

What i've done in similar situations is basically trail and error. You've got two spots for one wire, try them both out.

Some companies will use a generic piece for all their similar products. Maybe one of Altec's other headsets uses that 5th spot for something. Just try them both out and see what happens. Just dont solder them right away, stick them on with some electrical tape or something to save yourself some time. Then when you're sure you can solder away.

SOURCE: the sound cuts off sometimes the wire seems to be the problem...

The wire leading into the headset is likely broken. Usually this occurs at the entrance point of the jack or at the point where the wire enters the speaker, if they are worh repairing, open the speaker and check the condition of the wire. this can be as easy as pulling gently on the wire either side of the suspected break. if the wire is firm then it is likely alright, if the wire stretches, the wire is broken inside and only the insolation is keeping it togehter.
if this doesn't work then you will need an ohm meter and ohm out the cable, remember to flex the cable at the suspected area with the meter on, if the meter drops off you found your break.

solder up the break or if in the case of the jack solder on a new jack.

Hope this is of some help.

A common fault with all corded/cable microphones is that one of the wires inside the cable breaks.
- I am assuming you are talking about a cabled mic?

It's possible to repair the cable if you have a soldering iron. This is the cheapest way to fix your problem.
If you don't have one, suggest you buy a new cable from your local Shure stockist.

The other major fault that occurs with mic's is that they are dropped - and that will show the same symptoms as you have descibed above if it has been dropped a few times - especially onto hard surfaces or floors!

The cable will only cost a few £'s or $'s, should be less than 10.

Audio is lost now and then on my bearcat 210xlt but every thing else works fine.


The most common cause for this problem is a broken wire in the mic cord. The mic switch is responsible for putting the radio in receive mode. If the TX wire is broken, then the radio will not go into receive mode. This usually happens because the mic cord is constantly moving around in the vehicle, and as well you are always pulling and tugging on the cord so you can talk in the mic. It happens.

if you have a spare mic, you can try it. If the receive works with another mic, then your stock mic needs repair, if you want to keep using it. Usually the wires break off at the solder joints at the plug, and is a quick fix with a soldering iron.

Or you can just use the other mic, or buy a new one.

Basically we are getting a static sound every now and again. I think it has to do with the wireless signal because it only happens when the room is filled with people not when the room is empty. How can...


Try moving belt pack around on person (speaker) and try moving receiver closer to person speaking, also keep receiver elevated, off floors and antennas need to be up. Wireless signal is like "line of sight" and if there's a ton of obstructions you're cutting signal strength. Also make sure you ALWAYS use fresh batteries, weak batteries will do the same.

Mic cuts out and i have narrowed the problem to the mic clip receiver connection with the lav cord...how do i fix the connection shorting out?...other than getting a new part for it


It's hard to tell what would be the solution, until you figure out what is causing the short. It might be easier to send it to Shure for repairs.

My Cobra 29 LTD sometimes does not work even though the lights remain on. In other words I can't talk on it or hear anyone even though it appears to be operational


Your mic or mic jack is faulty. Try a different mic. In cobra 29's and some other variants, when you disconnect the mic, the audio is disabled. It will still receive, and transmit(possibly) but you will hear nothing from the radio.

It could be,
  • Broken wire on the back of the mic jack in the radio.
  • Broken wire in the mic cord.
  • Disconnected wires in the mic for the switch.
  • Dirty mic connection pins.
Most likely the problem is with the mic, and not the radio.

the mics on these cobras have a receive wire in them so the transmit will still work even if the receive wire is broken,if this wire is broken the unit will not make any sound...........remove the plug from the radio end of the mic and check the connections on the 5 pin connector.....(could be a cold solder or broken wire) or try a new mic or one that is proven work on another radio
hope this helps.................good luck!

Possible solution. I have fixed two with this problem. When the radio drops to a hard surface, the ferrite coil antenna is the heaviest component on circuit board. Look for cracks in solder or broken wires where attachments to circuit board occurs for this component. Use a fine point soldering iron with low heat.

Hi,

Most standard CB microphones are 4 wires:
Audio IN (from Mic)
Speaker
PTT (TX)
Ground.

73c90ea.jpg

To determine which is which on the radio side:
a. the Audio IN (from Mic) would read a high resistance to ground (chassis) of CB radio;
b. the Speaker when connected to the ground would activate the receive speaker. To verify, power up the radio, squelch all the way down, when shorted to ground, speaker will produce background noise/sound;
c. when PTT (TX) is shorted to the ground, the rig will transmit and the red TX indicator will light up;
d. Ground. when tested with an Ohmmeter to the chassis will read 0 ohms.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turn up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
