How to maintain wireless microphone?
There is an overlap between the maintenance of the wireless microphone and the wired microphone. The article on the maintenance of the wired microphone was written last time, and it will not be repeated here. It is recommended that friends who have not read it can review it first. (Main points and methods for maintaining wired microphones>>)

What we said about the maintenance of wired microphones can be used for the maintenance of wireless microphones. But in addition to this, there are other things to pay attention to wireless microphones.

For the wireless microphone system, we first need to check its signal transmitter and receiver.
Starting from the signal transmitter, pay special attention to the battery box and its cover. Make sure that the contacts of the battery are clean, and break the deformed contacts back to their original position. This will keep the battery contact firm and stable. After that, use some special cleaners on the connection contacts and gently wipe them with a small brush.
Then we turn our attention to the receiver.
To check the antenna connector of the receiver, also check the power cord / power supply and the screws used to fix the receiver on the rack to ensure that they are not loose. Turn on the electronic equipment, test all the systems, and adjust the frequency to ensure that the system can work normally at all frequencies. Finally, check the rack itself for problems, and finally clean and lubricate the buckle and wheels.
In addition to the regular maintenance of the microphone, we must pay attention to some points in normal use to make the life of the microphone longer.
1. The microphone is a kind of high-sensitivity audio equipment, you must pay attention to handle it gently to avoid falling from a high place. The impact may cause the microphone sensitivity to be reduced or even damaged. If you have a hard time noticing this, you can protect the microphone with an anti-collision ring.

2. Do not blow the microphone hard or tap its head to test the sound. The correct test method is to speak into the microphone in a normal tone. It is recommended to use a windshield to avoid not only the  plosive but also saliva from entering the microphone.

3. If the microphone is not used for a long time, the battery should be removed and installed when it is in use. If the sound is intermittent during use, it may be caused by insufficient battery power, and a new battery should be replaced in time.

4. When not in use, store the microphone in a dry and clean place, avoid storing and using in places with high temperature and humidity, so as not to affect the sensitivity and timbre of the microphone. If your area is hot and humid, you should prepare some sealed boxes and desiccants, and check them more frequently.

Although the maintenance work itself may be a bit tedious, when you find that your maintenance work can help solve the hidden dangers during the performance, you will thank your work. No matter how large your company is, develop a preventive maintenance plan for microphones (especially vocal microphones) and other equipment. Only in this way will their service life be longer and more reliable. Of course, the performers will also be grateful for your work.
