Torn cable My son snagged the little wire going to the right cymbal. It broke off just before the plug - no end to splice. Any way of replacing this wire without buying a whole new drum set? Thank you.

Can i fix or replace physical keyboard

You could try cutting the bad cable between the torn wires and the keyboard and then sacrificing another USB cable by cutting off the end you need along with as much wire as required, then stripping the ends of the two cables, match wire colors between the cables and soldering the connections. Wrap electrical tape around each connection and then tape all the connections together. Might work. New keyboards are usually available for less than $10 at various stores like Big Lots, K-mart, Walmart. Probably not economic to fix the thing unless it was an expensive mechanical gaming keyboard.

1999 dodge avenger the positive battery cable has three ends and two of the ends are burned like 4 inches down the cables. how do I fix them? Do I need to replace the whole cable? Thank you. Guillermo...

cut them a little and find the same gauge wire and just splice them back together ive spliced many wires for batteries so trust me this will work.

Blue wire on 3 channel S107 broke when heli crashed and rear motor popped out. is it possible to splice together again or do something to get it back working?

It depends on where the wire broke at. If it is right at the motor it may be tough if not impossible to do a splice but if you have a little slack to work with, you can simply peel back a little of the blue insulation then twist the ends together.

How can i repair or replace the audio cable

You can go to radio shack and buy a replacement plug end and splice it into your cable.

It will require a little soldering to secure it but it should work fine when your done.

Good luck and be careful.

Broken wire to yellow cymbal

I would recommend stripping both ends of the wire to expose the wire, add another piece of wire in between the broken wire, to lengthen the wire overall, then simply reconnect all the wires together. After the wires are reconnected then, add some electrical tape around the parts where the wire is exposed. If there is not enough wire to patch it up, then sorry to say but, you will need to buy some replacement cymbals. It will $13.99 with free shipping on ebay, just seach "replacement cymbals xbox 360", it will come right up.

One of my cymbals just stop working, i've unplugged it from the cymbal, turned the amp off and on, restarted the system and nothing seems to be working. I did unplug it from the "brain" i believe, (i just...

Try these:

- change the interconnection cable between the cymbal and the "brain" unit, if the problem goes away, you have a bad cable.

- if the problem persists, see if that particular cymbal works well on another input of the "brain" unit, if it does, you have a problem with the input on the "brain unit", this will require servicing if the unit still has a warranty, otherwise you should first check the solder contacts on the input that doesn't work (also check for dirt /oxydation on the plug contacts and clean if necessary).

- If that particular cymbal won't work when you plug it into any "brain" cymbal inputs (it's basically a piezo trigger so it should work on other inputs), then you have either a broken wire on the piezo trigger or on the cable connector in that cymbal (it should be possible to resolder), or the piezo trigger itself is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I hope you can find out what troubles your drum kit.

Cymbal Wire Broken Issue: I got the same problem as many. My kid pulled the Guitar hero cymbal wire and it ripped out of the rt angle mono jack connector. After reading on the net I purchased a replacement...

I don't know if you resolved this problem yet but I had the same issue because my kid decided to twist the cymbals backwards and ripped both wires. I just bought a pair of used cymbal wires on Ebay for about $10 which included shipping. Other sellers are selling new wires for about $15-$20 each. The wires worked great. There is some labor required though but it's pretty simple. First you have to take all the screws out from the bottom so you can take the whole drumhead set off. Then disconnect each wire and plug the new one in. It might be easier to do them one at a time so you don't forget where each one goes. There is no soldering necessary. Hope this helps.

Where to connect 3rd cymbal cable end to drum machine

well i am not sure what r u talking about,but as i met the same problem,i assume that you mean you lack one cable...What you should do is:
1.Connect the cable to the cymbal.Then connect it the ending of the cable with bass drum(not with the device)
2.Connect the bass drum with the device,as there will be 2 cables in the bass drum.Then plug it into the device & you will be ok.

This may sound silly but where do you plug both of the cymbals in

We just got ours and set it up today. My son had same problem. The holes to plug in the cymbals are right underneath the cymbal pads, on the side of the bar holding up the pads. If you study the directions carefully, you can see where they are directing you to plug them in.
