My search didn't bring much up, but this might have been covered before ?

If you are looking to just get it fixed (no DIY), it looks like Shure will repair it for $61 USD. I've done this in the past for a couple of mic's.  I think they ended up sending me a new mic both times.

No way to repair that, the tiny lead out wires are broken.
New cartridge time!

The only worth of fixing that one would be an educational value. But then, I do not see any. Those mics are so cheap that IMO are not worth fixing. Just discard it and buy a new one for some $100 (or good working used one for half of it) and spend that time for much more important things in your life...
