The wires are probably enamel insulated. The enamel must be removed, and then the wires properly soldered and insulated. If you do not have experience at this and have the proper tools, it will be a difficult job to do.

Maybe to have this fixed, you can take the headset to a TV service shop, or if you know a tech who will give some time to do this for you. If you have to pay a tech to do this type of fix, the cost may be more than what the headset is worth.

If it is an expensive headset, I would recomend to send the headset to the manufacture to have the wire completely replaced.

Repair lapel microphone

If batteries are good and correct polarity has been observed, check the XLR end for a broken wire. If the mic is defective they are very difficult to repair (size does matter) and will most likely require factory service.

My Rode Nt1A also stopped working. I think its because i took the silica gel bag from the case. Should i always keep the mic inside the case after the usage. and i dont use a pop up filter

Removing the silicone bag and not using a pop shield can lead to condensation on the diaphragm. Place it in a bag of rice for a day to dry out any condensation on the capsule.
It may not be due to condensation though. Make sure your phantom power source is working. If possible attach another mic to the same source to see if it works. Check the contacts on the mic and also check the wire for any erosion or debris. If none of these work, fixing the mic may be beyond DIY repair.

Sound only comes through one channel, have you any idea why? Norman Bevan

Most likely there is a broken wire inside the mic. You'll have to disassemble it to fix it, and it's not what I would call an easy job. Get a tech to help you, if you can. Chances are that it's just a wire that's broken and needs resoldering.
Also, on the following page, they talk about determining whether the problem is with the mic or headset, which should always be done first.
Sennheiser recommends sending it in for repair, and here's their site:
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Grandkids twisted the top around and around, now it don't work

Unfortunately the catridge wiring is now broken. As the wires are extremely fine you will need to take the microphone in to a repair shop. They may be able to resolder the wires but it is more likely that they will replace the entire cartridge with a new one.
