The capsule on one of my (out of warranty) XD-V70 mics has died. Prior to this failure it was working perfectly. I turned it off at the end of the gig and put it in a sock then put it in my guitar case like I always do... next gig I turned it on and got no audio output. It's not muted. If I change the capsule with a different XD-V70 mic it works fine. I took some resistance measurements compared to the working one and it appears there is on open circuit to one of the contact rings.
I first tried a support ticket but all they can do is recommend buying a new capsule.
Can anyone offer some advise on how to open the capsule to check the connections inside? Does it screw on or is it put together with adhesive? Is it worth even opening up the capsule?
