If my memory serves me correctly... it seems one can solve the pin 1
problem by connecting the mic ground pin and the overall ground pin on
the 8-pin mic connector - which marries the mic ground and the chassis
ground that way.
I have not found this necessary, but some microphones seem to need this
connection to the chassis ground.
As Stuart suggests, maybe adding a temporary jumper on the plug pins
will be enough to test this out before making permanent improvements.
