Please connect the same color wires once you strip the broken wire at the two ends , match the same and connect and check if it works....

Yes I suppose you could fix it yourself, but I do recommend getting a original replacement for it.

The microphone is very simple device, there are 2 maybe 3 cables that you need to wire and connect to the connector in the right spots. You would need to test the old cable to see which wire connects to what.

    I had a look at the microphone and it has 2 wires inside the cable,



    Ground and signal.



    This is a very easy fix really..

    Rewire the two wires inside the cable and connect the two cables to the plug, thats it.

    when I was 7 my father had me down in the garage with him fixing hes cars. I could probably have fixed your mic back when I was 7 so really this is very easy. the type of wire you use may effect the quality, maybe ask a local shop for a professional opinion on what wire to use on it.

    if this is your mic






    I can see the connector has 2 wires inside judging from the connector head. if the old connector is broken, get some good quality wire and a good plug for it from a local shop, you can fix it yourself.

My avr 300 is making a humming sound through all speakers. It seems to be a little worse on the directv input but humming all the time. Is there a fix or a common problem that I am missing??


Remove all the input cables and see if the speakers still hum. If they do you have a problem in the amplifier, probably a bad capacitor. Remove the power and open the unit by removing the case. Should be screws on the back and side. Find where the power cord comes in and follow it to the board. This is the power supply section. Look at all the different sized cylinders (electrolytic capacitors) in that area for bulging. Replace any which look suspicious. Also inspect all the electrolytics throughout the unit for bulging, replacing as necessary. If this does not solve the problem you will probably need to take it to a tech for repair. If the unit quits humming after removing all the inputs you have a cable or cables with a broken ground. Get a known good cable, preferably new, and check the unit. If it still works OK, replace each input until the hum comes back. That will be the bad cable. Toss it and keep going until you get all the bad cables weeded out. Let me know if you need anymore help.

I am trying to connect my new PS3 slim to my Denon AVR 590 and some odd reason I can't get any video signal from my Receiver... Something I am doing wrong?


Double check your inputs on the denon some are assignable, Check cables for looseness hdmi cables are prone to this since they are digital. make sure tv is on the right input and if it is try changing it to a different input "sometimes inputs/outputs go bad"

My sennheiser hd 212pro headphones has only the left side speaker working, the other side has no sound. i pulled them apart to see if anything had come lose and nothing has, i dont know wat is wrong with...


One speaker element may be blown or wiring may have internal break. It may be cheaper to relace the phones rather than having them serviced, unless they are still under warranty

Hdmi or optical


There are no noticable differences between HDMI and optical except price. Although optical is less prone to EFM interference, HDMI can carry a wider bandwidth, depending on quality, but cost a lot especially long runs (10 ft or more). Also optical cables are not prone to connector tarnish which occurs even with gold pins of HDMI
