AKG D24C Loose Small Tuchel in Stem of Microphone

Dear Sir:
I have a loose ("miniXLM") small Tuchel connector mounted a bottom of microphone stem which is loose and when moved causes electrical noise. I have removed a small set screw near bottom of stem which appears to be locking screw for screw in Tuchel connector, but I am unable to tighten connector. Do you have a suggestion? Other than this problem, microphone operates properly.

SOURCE: AKG Perception Microphone ony recording in mono but want stereo.

I have similar problems with inputing stereo sound. How do you know your mic port on the PC is set for stereo? What kind of a cable are you using? If it is an XLR, the connection is pure mono. Maybe you need a TRS cable, which looks like a 1/4 inch jack but is really stereo. Maybe you need a stereo mini. Usually a cable mismatch is the problem. Is your phantom power supply passing stereo? All the ones I have seen are mono. You may need two. Is your sound capture set for stereo? Are the input level controls set correctly for equal volume on left or right channel? I would try the mic with a regular amplifier to insure both channels are working. Then trace the signal from mic to power supply and power supply to computer.

Well, if it's not the cord it has to be the mic plug and it sounds to me like it's loose even thought you can't see that it is. If I could get my hands on it, I could fix it -- but that won't likely happen -- so I'd say it's off to the repair shop.

SOURCE: I have an AKG C3000B microphone. It got very quiet.

How to repair a C3000B with low output.

I had the same problem, and was able to repair it myself. i've seen several other posts with the same description, and if you can use a soldering iron, you're golden. I just now repaired mine, and it took less than 10 minutes. One of the leads going from the PCB board to the capsule was broken loose at the solder joint. Mine has been dropped, so no surprise. Somehow, if you boost the signal enough, you still get sound, where I would have expected silence.

You need a star bit set (I have a little mult-mini screwdriver set that has them stored in the handle from home depot.) There are two silver screws in the bottom lip. Remove these and the whole screen housing slides off. Even better, the capsule assembly slides out too. There are two prongs that plug into a harness when inserted.

There are two black wires from said prongs to capsule leads. See if one is loose. If so, solder that ***** back on and its as good as new, and hot signal.

You also need small plyers, someting to strip the small. I know this is a late post, but maybe it will elp somone. Good luck.

Connection problem with rode ntg-2


If you look at the side of the microphone at that end there should be a small hole. Using long nose pliers grasp one of the pins and pull the jack all the way out to make sure that no wires have broken loose. Look on the side of this (plastic?) piece and you will notice a small screw with a slot in it. Using the pliers again, insert the piece back into the microphone gently and line the screw up with the hole. There should be only one way to do this as the piece has a protrusion that guides it down a slot in the microphone. Once the screw is lined up use a small enough flat blade screw driver to fit the hole. Screw the screw out, Yes Out. What this does is secure thje plug in place and provide a ground to the microphone. Please let me know how you make out.

My AKG Perception 200 Cut the signal suddenly


Sounds like a loose connection. Try duct taping the microphone cable in place where it enters the microphone.

My mike just stopped working, dead?


The first thing to check is the phantom power. Make sure it is there. The mic will appear dead without the power present.
