I have an https://www.gearslu… Audix D6[/]="https://www.gearslu… Audix D6[/] mic that suddenly stopped working.
Any chances to take this mic apart for service?
I already took the grill cover off and loosened the philips screw that's accessible from the connectors side, holding the capsule in place. The capsule gets loose, but doesn't come off. The small wires that go to the connector are sort of epoxied in place.

And: what exactly should I look for after taking the mic apart?

Thanks in advance,

How old is it? Is it still under warranty?

Has it been dropped, or otherwise mishandled in any way? Was it subjected to moisture?

It could be several things - wiring is probably the most common problem... have you checked the wiring that leads to the XLR connector on the bottom of the mic?

Having it professionally serviced is probably your best bet.

The mic is at least 6 years old. It belongs to a friend of mine who bought it on ebay. I guess warranty is void by now.
I don't think it has been droped, since miy friend owns a studio and he told me that it worked fine and the next moment quit its job. However, since his studio is at a quite humid location, so yes, it was exposed to moisture.
I'm having trouble lifting the guts out of the housing. The capsule gets loose and so does the XLR connector, but the center part where the screw is located that holds the capsule in place doesn't move. It sure is a very tight fit...
