[Harp-L] Need help repairing Amphenol mic cable connector
Thanks to those who wrote to help. I have been unable to solve my problem
and have been even been unable to find my solution online. I probably didn't
state my case clearly, so please let me try to clarify.
I have an Amphenol connector who's wire has ripped out of the bottom of
the connector. The hot (positive) center wire needs to be resoldered to where
it had been previously soldered. The only way to gain access to where it needs
to be resoldered is if the connector can be disassembled. The only way it
can be disassembled is if I could push everything up thru the top of the
connector. Only then can i gain access to contact that needs to be soldered.
The problem is that the connector seems to be crimped in and I can't (yet)
get it apart. It doesn't make sense to me that a manufacturer would make
fittings that can't be repaired. Out of curiosity, do they still make these
connectors, and if so, why? What are the advantages of Amphenol connectors?
For all i know, my Shure 545S mic is vintage and I would prefer to keep it
original. But.....can i eliminate the Amphenol connector and replace with a
standard 1/4 inch plug?
I do realize that I could probably buy a new wire or have someone else fix
it, but i would like to get it working quickly and simply.
I would gladly send a picture to help clarify. Thanks so much.
