Please apply a lubricant contact cleaner from radio shack near you-in the place where you plug the cord and then put your plug in-out many times(because you said that your mic is new)

Bought a prima superchef oven, when I plug it in the electricity trip switch cuts off the power.


or a wire is touching the casing. If it is new, call the retailer. If it is secondhand call an appliance technician.

If it is a UK or Australian cooker, and the wires a fixed into terminals behind a cover on the wall, you have it wired wrong.

Big volts and amps can kill.

Why does my plug get extremely warm or hot?


Inside the wire, several strands of wire are broke. Heat is caused by less strands of wire that have to carry more current in amps. This is a safety and fire hazard. Cut the old plug off by cutting the cord about 2 inches away from the plug. Strip the wires carefully. Do not cut or break off any strands of wire. Install a new plug. Make sure you buy a round plug that has a round opening for your round cord. A lot of plugs are for flat type of cords only.

Locate the faulty connection along your cord. Plug in your headphones and play sound through them as you jiggle the cord at various points to locate what part of the cord is cutting in and out.
    • 2
Cut the cord using wire cutters an inch or so past where the fault in the cord is. If this is at the connector, cut the entire connector piece off. If it is near the headphones, cut off enough to eliminate the faulty section and still allow the cord to be reconnected.

    • 3
Strip the end of the cut cord. There are three wires in the cord: the left channel, the right channel and the ground. The left and right normally are colored, and the ground is bare.
    • 4
To repair a poor connection where the cord meets the headphones, match the wires with the correct leads coming from the earpieces and twist them together. Wrap the wires with electrical tape.
    • 5
To repair a bad connection at the connector jack, acquire a new 1/8-inch connector and attach the cord's inner wires to the appropriate points on the connector. Connect the left channel wire to the tip, the right channel wire to the ring, and the ground wire to the sleeve. Solder all the wires in place.

Connect the headphones to a sound source and test for proper function. Jiggle the cord at the new connection to make sure it is secure and does not cut in and out.

I have an audio technica wireless mic with the 4 pin connector. We have purchased a new lavalier mic but are still having trouble with tge mic maintaining a connection. It keeps cutting in and out if you...


Mic plug has been replaced (new lav mic) so that leaves the mic jack connected to the body transmitter. Corrosion is a possibility...

Radio Shack tuner cleaner http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12784986

but I think it's something to do with the mic jack on the transmitter. Some units solder these connectors directly to the internal PC board and after a while, the solder connections break. Have a tech open it up and closely inspect the input jack's solder pads.

When keying up i hear a ecko coming out of box click sound


This usualy says that there may be a break in the Mic. wiring. To find this out sometimes if the break is at one end or the other you can try while keying up und speaking into mic. wiggle the wires at the plug or where the cord comes out of the bottom of the mic.
Sometkimes the cord can be cut and re-soldered or, replace it regardless. The latter may save you the same problem down the road..........HAVE FUN ! !

I just bought one


Typically the wire bends often and severely at the plug (i.e. when using storing, etc.) Every time it bends, there is a chance that the small copper strands in the wire break. The more strands that break, the smaller the wire effectively is. When electricity passes through a wire with a lot of resistance (such as the now-smaller wire right at the plug), it gets hot.
Bottom line: replace the cord before it starts a fire. Failing that, you might be able to cut off the bad section of cord and install a new plug where the cord is still good.

Power cord cuts in and out


There are two places the trouble can be happening, at the adapter plug or at the power jack in the laptop. To determine which one is causing the power loss, hold the plug in the computer steady with your fingers while you wiggle the adapter cable. (If you have access to a voltmeter you can measure the voltage at the plug while you wiggle the cable to see if remains steady.)

If the charge light flickers it's the adapter cord that's bad. Because the wire flexes so much at the plug, it can break inside the insulation and cause the power loss. You either need to replace the adapter or repair it by cutting off the bad end and installing a new plug.

If the charge light remains on with the plug held steady but flickers when you wiggle the plug itself, the trouble is on the main board in the computer. The solder connections at the power jack have broken from the plug flexing and need to be repaired. This involves opening up the computer and getting at the solder side of the main board. It's tedious but relatively simple. If you are not experienced with soldering on small electronics, leave this to a professional shop.

How do you put a new connector on a cb cable?


Hi,
1) Get an ohm meter.
2) open the mic
3) unclamp the mic cord at the plug and slide the plug case up the cable to enable you to see the wires soldered to the plug.
4) use the ohm meter to check the wire continuity by checking each color wire one at a time. The meter should have full deflection if the wire is OK, make sure to wiggle the wire to make sure it is not intermittent.

Personally I would just change out the cord. If it is going the rest of the wires are going too.

Can't hear sound on one of the headphone's speaker


It's less common for one of the speakers to go bad in a set of headphones. It's possible - but there are more common problems that will cause this. I assume you have tried the headphones on another device to rule our a problem with the device you are currently listening with and using the other device, you still only hear audio from the left speaker.

The wires in the cord that connect the plug to the headphones are very thin and are susceptible to breaking. The most commmon place for these wires to break is at the point where the cord is flexed or stressed the most. Those points are:

1. Right at the plug
2. Where the wire enters into the left and right speaker.

There are occasions where I have seen the wires become unsoldered from the speaker terminals within the headphones themself.

What You Can Do:

1. While listening with the headphones, try flexing the cord back & forth at the plug and where the wire goes into the right speaker. See if the audio will come back and cut out again.

2. What I have done is cut the cord about 3" back from the plug. Go to Radio Shack and purchase a new plug and install a new plug on the cord.

3. You can also take the headphones apart and cut a few inches off the cord where it connects to the right speaker and reconnect the new end of the wire to the right speaker. The goal is to cut away the bad part of the cord and re-attach the good part back.

4. You can try to replace the entire cord but I haven't been able to find replacement (THIN) cords too easily.

Good Luck,

- Jim
