My skullcandy hesh have stopped playing sound

this sounds like broken wires inside the insulation. if you are handy with a soldering iron you can dissassemble the headphones and reconnect the wires by cutting the ends off and stripping back the outer sleeving to reveal new wires which need to be soldered onto the connections where the old wires were connected. The wires could also be broken at the end where they plug into yor sound system. if this is the case it is often easier to replace the jack plug with a new one.

My headphone cable is broken. How do I replace it?

Buy a good Jack to Jack cable, open your headphone, find out where the two cables are soldered, unsolder them.
Cut one end of your new cable, remove the plastic aroud the 2 wires on a small lenght and solder your new wires where the old were.

Et voila.

Hope this helps

My skull candy lowride jack has a lose wire how do i reapir it? plz help

It's probably easier to buy a new jack from an electronics supply store.
Cut the old one off and strip the ends of the wires.
Solder the wires onto the new jack. It might take a little time figuring out which wire is which.
Don't forget to put the jack cover on the wire before you start soldering.

Dont work when i put them into headphone slot. i have to twist them and most of the time hold them at one angle to get them to work... i have the skull candy skullcrushers.

It is broken wire(s) inside the cord at the plug. The is either get a new jack at Radio Shack or similar and solder the wiers to the contacts as follows bare copper (2 of them) to the "sleeve" which is the part of the plug closest to the cord, then solder each of the other two wires to one of the other contacts.

My skull candy skullcrushers's audio jack fell out.

Simply cutt what is left of the old plug off and buy a new plug. You will need to solder the wires on. You will find when you have baired back the cable two coloured wires and two earths. The earths fit together on the metal flange that comes out of the main body of the plug. The coloured wires go on the the two smaller flanges (left and right channels). If you get them wrong way round reverse them you won't do any damage. Make certain the earths don't come into contact with the R & L channels wires or terminals and the left or right don't touch each other. The T shaped end on the large flange is to grip the cable body, bend the tabs to grip the cable.

Wire broken near plug. Need disassemble a plug. How

You can buy a new plug and solder the wires to it. Leave a long enough piece of wire on the old plug to test to see which wire goes where. On the plug it should be tip+left, 2nd ring + right and the base or body is ground. Don't forget to put the shield that screws on the plug right way around on the cable before you solder.

How to replace the male plug of my icon skull candy headphone.

there are 3 wires.A ground,usually a braid on the outside under the plastic covering and 2 other wires, one for left and one for right.the size of plug is a 1/8 phone jack.the wires are very thin and you have to make sure to trim just enough plastic to solder it on.too much peeled plastic will create a short,and you have to be good at soldering to do it.

Skull Candy Headphone problem

The wires can easily break inside the insulation without showing it outside. The good news I'm about 99% sure it isn't in the headset or at least one would work.

So, can you see any markings where it got caught in the door? If so I would cut the cable a couple of inches towards the headset from there and install a new plug . The plug is wired as follows: bare coppers both go to the contact that leads to the large sleeve on the plug. The other two wires each go to one ot the other two contacts. A little solder and you're on your way again.
