Introduction

The XLR connector is the place where the XLR cable connects to the microphone. If the connector is pulled out, the internal wiring of the microphone can be damaged.

Parts

No parts required.

While holding the microphone connector in one hand, and the XLR cable in the other hand, slowly pull them apart. Make sure you are not holding the microphone connector by the wires. Check to make sure all of the internal wires are connected. If you see a disconnected wire, take a look at the connector soldering guide.

With those parts aligned, push the connector back into the microphone until the screw lines up with hole in the side of the microphone. Do not push the microphone past this point or the connector may become stuck.

Using a small flat head screw driver, turn the screw in the side of the microphone clockwise until it is tight.
