Question about Sony MDR-V150 Professional Headphones
I have stripped my wires and found the two pair of wires one is red and gold and one is green and gold ... I understand that the gold wires are ground and the left and right are the green and red ... however I have a radioshack plug end with 3 terminals .. part number 274-0869 ... since this part comes without any specs or instructions I cannot determine which is the ground and what is the right or left ... please help.
Many have complained about a lack of instructions for the Radio Shack 1/8" rplacement plug. I recently had to fix my eMachines speakers after many years of use.
1. Remove the plastic protective housing from Radio Shack's part# 274-0869. It covers the screws used to connect your wires.
2. Cut the defective end off off your speakers or headphones to be repaired. Place the knurled gold housing and then the plastic prtective housing onto the wire of the device being repaired (to avoid doing things twice).
3. Strip about 1 inch of shield from the end of the cable being repaired.
4. You may wish to "tin" the braided wires with a soldering iron to ensure a quality repair with limited chance for "shorts."
5. On my speakers there were white, red and copper wires. The copper wire is the cable shield and connects to the longest connector. White connects to the center screw (the core of the plug), red connects to the 2nd shortest screw lead and the sheild (copper) wire connects to the longest (furthest from the tip of the plug).
I had pics but the size limitation by Fixya are unrealistic.... Good Luck!
