Question about Sennheiser 100/500 G2 Series Wireless Combo Kit EW150ENGG2C Microphone

1 Answer

Issue more complicated than originally thought!

I have a Sennheiser ew 100 G2 wireless mic. I thought the original problem was the red off/on button was missing, but when I opened the bottom of the microphone to replace the part, I noticed the pieces that I assume link up to the button were loose and came off. Is this fixable at my level? Is there a diagram or picture resource I can access of the inside of this microphone?

This isn't a solution. But after I've gotten into my microphone with the same issue using a torx screwdriver I found that I (Electrical Engineer) don't have the proper equipment to fix the issue. Roughly 100 dollars (Flat rate) and a send off to Sennheiser is your best bet.

SOURCE: On/off button fell off Sennheiser wireless mic

This is quite common with G2's, and really annoying!
If you are lucky, 50% of the time the red button is pushed inside the mic.
You need to remove the bottom section:
- open the battery compartment
- there should be 3 star-bit screws around the outside (remove)
- pull the bottom of the mic off

If the red button is not inside, they are available as a spare part from Sennheiser dealers.

Be carefull when putting the mic back together, it needs to line up correctly with the internal guides, forcing the base back on could damage the ribbon cable. when the line-up is correct it slides on very easily.

Best of luck.

SOURCE: Sennheiser ew 100 g2 handheld microphone loose coil in capsule?

I had a similar problem with a sure sm 57 that I used on a guitar amp. I don't know if this is the correct fix but it worked for me. I took thin strips of paper to use as spacers and placed them evenly around the coil. I used a hot melt glue gun and placed 3 small drops around the edge of the coil. Remove the spacers and the coil should be secure.

SOURCE: It appears the power on/off

Hi,

Often the rubber button is pushed into the microphone.
You can easily disasemble the unit.
Just open the batterycase, you will find some small torx screws.

Gerard

How do i sync my mic to my receiveri have a ew 100 g3 and after some kids were playing with it, I can't get any sound


Pressing the sync button whilst holding the mic close to the IR unit on the receiver should sync things back up. If this has already been done things to try next are as follows.

RF Mute. Press and release the power button. RF Mute should be displayed. Press the roccker switch and select RF mute OFF, press the rocker switch again.
Check in the advanced menu that the pilot tone is on on the handheld AND the receiver.

Sennheiser ew 100 G2 cordless mic shuts off, low batt signal flashes , when fresh batteries are used. batteries inside mic heat up & get hot!


Heating up on replacing batteries is an indication of a short circuit.The construction of these cordless mic does not allow one to do any kind of repair. You will have to replace the whole circuit board which is available only with the authorized service center. And might cost you 70% the cost of the mic itself.

Frequency clash


There are different frequencies available and being used in each location.

To get a basic idea of which frequencies are available in your area, try this online tool:
http://www.sennheiserusa.com/findfrequency/
or use the literature provided with the Sennheiser gear (usually a useful chart comes with the wireless gear).

Also, remember that your transmitting frequencies need to be spaced apart a minimum of .400 MHz (or 400 kHz).

Frequency selection shouldn't cause feedback problems though. If you select a frequency for a mic that a local TV station is already using to broadcast, it will cause RF Interference (Radio Frequency). You'll probably hear static noises, pops, or since your Sennheiser has a Squelch feature, just drop-outs in audio.

So first consult the available charts to find a set of frequencies that should be available in your area. Then, if one of your mics is experiencing such an issue, try moving it .400 MHz to the nearest unused frequency and see if the RFI goes away. Repeat until the RFI no longer manifests.

Warranty? If not, open it up and look for unattached wires. If there's none, look for parts that look damaged, usually brown-ish. if there's any, they need to be replaced. Might get lucky and find parts

Broken power switch


Hi,

If you have a G1 SKM100 mic, the small on/off switch is an SKQLLC Tact switch made by ALPS. I don't know what's in a G2 or anything about the ones with the orange button. I just replaced the on/off switch and it took about 20mins. It's a bit fiddly but not too bad so long as you have a reasonably fine-tipped soldering iron. If you're in the USA then it look like there are a number of distributors who will sell one-offs. I'm in the UK and had to go back to the place I originally bought the mic from (DM music), who got it from Sennheiser and then sold it to me. For some reason Sennheiser wouldn't sell it to me direct. Good luck.
