My conrol cord has its pins distorted

The pins in my control cord were cut.So I just cut the wires and I would like it to be soldered directly into the circuit board. my question is, where should I put the specific wires into its specific location on the board? do you guys know where I could find the circuit diagram? thanks

Re: My conrol cord has its pins distorted

Anyone else have a circuit or know which pins could be joined to eliminate the remote switch on the right speaker?

How to connect the right speaker straight to the board of the main Creative A200 2.1 speakers? My male pin is cut and lost, I want to solder the wires straight to the board.

Look at the board and trace the route of the circuit on the board. solder it to the trace closest to where the pin is on the board. You should be able to solder it to the stub of the broken pin as well. Just make sure you have no solder bridges when you are done. Best practice if you can is to take a picture of the area before you start so you can see exactly what was soldered and compare it to your repair, any solder bridge will be obvious.Don't overheat things traces are easily ruined by overheating!

My left speaker has no sound unless i jiggle the cord right at the part where all 3 p;ugs turn into 1 cord. how do i fix it?

The wire inside the speaker cable is broken. You may be able to identify the exact point the wire is broken by bending the wire and unbending the wire. If you can locate the approximate location of the break, you could cut the broken section out then strip the wire, and reconnect. Best to solder if possible. Otherwise, you will probably need to replace the cable or buy a new speaker set.

Creative 9 pin male din damaged

The only way to go is Replace the 9 pin adapter. Radio Shack may have the adapter, check them out. You will need to be observant when locating the proper colored wire corresponding with each pin. Two ways to do this and all require a soldering iron. Either split or open the cover on the 9 pin male adapter and expose the wires going to each pin. Identify the colors and pin numbers and draw a diagram on paper to keep for reattaching the wires later on. Cut 1/4 of the insulation back from the end of each wire and tin the wires. In short, hold the solder to the wire ends and heat with the iron so a flow of solder runs along the bare wire. Make certain to put a connector cover onto the wires prior to soldering each wire in place on the pin end. Simply set the correct colored wire end in the proper pin number, hold the iron to the pin back end and allow the wire to affix itself. Do this with all wires. If you do not have 9 wires, that is not unusual, just do the procedure with what wires are available. If you cannot get the outer jacket off of the current 9 pin connecter, then you will need a Volt/Amp meter. Here you simply cut the wire approximately 1/2 to 2/4 Inch back from the cable 9 pin adapter, and locate the pin that corresponds to the colored wire. Using the RESISTANCE part of a meter, when you touch the two probes together the needle moves on the scale. Touch one end to a pin and try each colored wire end until you see the movement on the scale. Now you know what color corresponds with each pin. Solder each colored wire as mentioned above.

Broken green pin on logitech x230 can this be replaced

if the green pin is what plugs into your computer, a traditional, headphone 1/8th inch headphone jack, it can be replaced, however there is some soldering involved. Radio shack sells the replaceable ends for just a couple dollars. the only problem is knowing which wires to connect to which points on the new end. i would have to see the wire with the insulation stripped off to be able to tell you which are which

Logitech z3 wiring

I have a logitech z3 subwoofer with a mini-DIN-9 connector socket. It also has a volume control and 110V power cord. As best as i could trace the circuit, and using the TDA7377 stereo bridge amplifier chip datasheet, the pinout for the mini-DIN is as follows (untested):
1: L in (to vol.)
2: R in (to vol.)
3: Power (12V from transformer)
4: Standby (5V to play, 0.05mA; 0V to standby)
5: L out
6: R out
7: Ground
8: Ground
9: Ground

Connecting 3 to 4 with a large resistance (~20K ohms) should enable speaker. Pins 1 and 2 might be swapped; pins 5 and 8 might be swapped. Mini-DIN socket pin holes are numbered right to left, bottom row to top row:
9 8 7
6 5 4 3
2 1

A creative speaker SBS A200 connector pin was damaged. we need to connect that cable directly into the we need that pin details.

Hi, I hope this helps,

Pins look like this: (Top view, not copper side)
1 2 3 4 5
6 7 8 9

1 = Thin white wire from thick white cable (Left input)
2 = Gray (Speaker out)
3 = Orange (+V return from volume unit to bass unit)
4 = Not connected
5 = Thin Red wire from thick red wire (Right input)
6 = Blue (+V power from bass unit to volume unit)
7 = Black (GND - if socket removed, solder 3 socket shield holes to each other or solder black wire directly leftmost hole)
8 = Not connected
9 = Shield copper from thick red wire

Shield copper from thick wire : Solder to GND or Left unconnected

Headphone jack must be moved around to get right speaker working

You will find that sound comes from the right side speaker only when it is bent at a certain point. By trial and error you can roughly locate the point. Then you can cut the wire at that point, cut 1 inch each from both ends, strip the cables, and connect the conductors. What has happened is, due to unusual bending, the conductors to the right-side speaker has damaged (broken). After roughly locating the place and removing 1 additional inch each, you will remove the wire section with the broken terminal. Now you can strip the wires and make the connections again. If you are not good at stripping and soldering wires, better to to take it to an electrician. (You need to take only the headphone pin and parts attached to it). This repair won't cost much. Good luck!

Broken D-sub cable

I would advise against a direct solder inside the unit. I would go and purchase a replacement connector from a Radio Shack or other electronics parts store. Solder wires to this, then plug in, should fix problem.

Sliced control cord

Obviuosly,the tiny wires inside the insulations have more often than not,red and or white colors and you might have erroneously reconnected them through soldering.Yet,you didnt get the desired result.Visit an electronics spareparts store nearest you but make sure you bring the damaged cord with you,Inquire from them for a compatible cord which you can use as a replacement because if you continue using tis damaged cord might severely affect the entire system.Thanks.
