Question about Sony (6274866) for PS2 Consumer Headset

Open Question

I am attempting to splice a headset mike combo from Logitech. It has 5 strands in one large insulated tube. There are two sets of twisted pairing red-blue and copper-blue, and two solid strands - a red, a blue; these four 'wires' seem to be twisted microfiber of some sort. the fifth is what looks like traditional naked copper and in theory, this one should be able to be merely twisted... how do I achieve this and not go out and spend 40 bucks more due to pets with bad habits? The wire ends in an analog pair of jacks, but then piggyback into a USB plug and play adapter. I am sure this can be done with some patience...

General tip for splicing stranded wires.

I see a lot of people saying they cut wires to splice them. There's a better way. Strip about 1-1/2" of insulation off the existing wire and spread the strands into two equal parts, db861fc.jpg
Insert the end of the new wire through the opening and twist half around one side and half around the other side of the opening.5dadcf4.jpg1458083.jpg

How to install supco receptacle kit

You turn power off to the unit at the breaker. Unscrew the one or two screws that hold it on with a philips screwdriver. Cut both wires on the old one close to the box of the bad part. You need to splice the 2 sets of wires together, normally using porcelain wire nuts to insulate the raw wire or if it comes with shrink tube, install the tub on one wire before you twist the raw wires together, then slide the tube over your splice and heat it with a lighter evenly until the tubing shrinks covering the raw wire.

I have a short wiring in my left ear cup of my Logitech Wireless PRO USB Headset, and sound out of that ear shorts out all the time.

Time for a new pair. If you are not handy with a sodering iron it is best to buy another set. Once the wires are broken inside the insulation the only thing that can be done is replace the wire itself. it is easy to break the wires inside the insulation twisting the cord, pulling or yanking the cord, along with blending the cord in a sharp bend acn damage this cords that they put on products today.

Samsung htz310 home cinema system, speaker cable problem

If it's just the speaker cable, it's an easy fix. There are two strands of wire for each cable. I would cut the cable at the break, seperate the strands carefully about two inches in each direction, either by pulling them apart, or by using a knife, being careful to preserve the insulation around each strand (sometimes pulling apart the strands will pull the insulation from one side or the other depending on how fragile it is - I usually just start the seperation with a knife, and then pull them apart slowly). Then you can strip back the insulation about an inch on either side of the break on each strand.

To strip back the insulation, take a sharp knife and cut through the insulation by cutting around the wire on each strand about an inch back in both directions being careful to not cut through the wire. A few of the strands won't make a big difference, but if you cut too much it may be best to start over.

Once you have about an inch of wire exposed on each strand, you can intertwine the wires to put them back together. Just hold the bare ends of each seperated strand side-by-side and twist them together. If you mix up which strands are which, mark one of the sides with tape or a sharpie to make sure you twist the right ends together. Usually there is a white stripe on the positive strand, or some other marking that runs the length on one side only, so that's a good guide for putting the right wires back together.

Once that is done, you need to isolate the bare wires from each other. I usually bend them parrallel to the cable in opposite directions, and then use electrical tape run between them and around each strand. Once they are isolated and not in danger of touching, use some heatshrink tubing around the whole patch to make it lasting and durable. It won't look pretty, but it will work just fine. You can find heatshring tubing at Radio Shack. Just slide a big enough piece to cover the repaired area on from the end of the cable without the connector, and then use a hairdryer to shrink the tubing around the patch. If you don't have a hairdryer, you can use a match or candle. Just be careful.

Alternatively, you can just wrap more electrical tape around the whole area in a diagonal, but tape isn't nearly as durable a patch as heatshrink.

Hope that helps.

Tdk mp100 headphone jack

Each of the rubber covered cords running to each ear piece has two fine strand wire bundles inside. The right ear piece has a red colored strand and a copper colored strand. The left ear piece has a green colored strand and a copper colored strand. The wires are coated with an insulation lacquer. The lacquer burns off when you heat the wire for soldering.

Repair item: 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack, shrink tubing

Plan for strain relief:. These headphone wires can't take any tension at all. You need to crimp the black cords to the headphone jack somehow.

Slide strain relief and headphone jack housing over the over the rubber covered headphone cord.

  • You need to plan a way to relieve the pulling stress on the solder joints where the two headphone cords enter your replacement headphone jack.
  • Try shrink tubing if you have it.
  • If you have some thermal shrink tubing, slide a piece over the headphone cord end before stripping the wires.
  • Slide the headphone jack casing over the headphone cord also.
Strip each headphone cord 5/8" using the 18 gage setting of your wire stripper..

Hold each headphone cord in a "third hand" soldering assist tool and tease the green, red and copper bundles apart..I wore a 10x Magnavisor and I used a sewing needle and a bright light.

Twist the copper colored strands from both headphone cords together. They are the common ground wires. The copper colored bundle will attach to the headphone jack ground.

Apply a dab of solder to the end of each of the three bundles of wire. You will see and smell the insulating lacquer as it burns off. Keep most of the wire bundle cool.

Position the two strand headphone cord and the 3.5 mm headphone jack in the third hand soldering stand.
  • Plan where you can crimp the headphone cord. Crimp it when ready.
  • The green == left channel wire goes to the tip of the 3.5mm jack.
  • The red==right channel wire goes to the middle of the 3.5 mm jack
  • The copper colored wires go to the ground of the jack..
  • Measure resistance, 31 ohms per earpiece.
  • Screw the jack cover on and finish the strain relief craftsmanship.
