Help with: Simple mic plug repair

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Lo all, my mic plug got ripped off, so I am trying to fix it. After searching I still do not know exectly what to do. I would be very grateful if someone here could advise me on what goes where. Thanks very much. (I hope this is the right section! )

Here is a pic:

White wire to the center pin, ground shield to the largest part of the plug (ground).

Note: Test without solder first, just tie it and try to see if it works.

Thank you very much indeed. I was unable to test before soldering as I have fried a soundcard doing something similar before (who knew static when unplugging headphones could fry a sound card ) and didn't wanna take that risk with my friends laptop.
Works just perfectly, thanks FallenAngel.

Ah, so computer mics use the "left" channel? lol. I've always wondered which it was, thanks! This'll save me some wire when I mod a mic onto my SHP9000

Oh... For a second there I was confused. You have a stereo plug and a wire with one conductor and a ground drain wire, so I was wondering where the other wire went, but now I see that you're only using it as mono.

Well, it's a single microphone, hense mono

I thought about that too, but for whatever reason I thought he might be trying to replace a missing XLR jack, which would need another conductor (and obviously wouldn't work in this case )... I haven't used a TS mic in forever.

I know this thread has been over for a while, but I thought one of you guys might get an update and be able to answer this question.

 

I have the same problem as the OP and I was going to fix it this way.  This won't cause the mic signal to only come through one side right? I know this is a mono setup, which is fine, cuz it's just for VoIP for gaming, but I thought since you're really only connecting to one channel on a stereo plug, won't you just get it in one ear?

 

Thanks if any of you can help
