Need to get broke part out of controller

My 360 headset(wired) had the tip broke of in the connecting spot, this prevented me from using the controller to chat online even with a new headset. I have had the same problem in the past and recently discovered that the peace was pushed all the way in the controller allowing it to now connect to a new headset. this however leaves the part inside making a rattling noise when moved the controller takes that key allen key tool with the dot in the middle, so i guess all this text was to ask if anyone knows where to get one of those tools?

Try using a metal needle, take out battery pack and push it back through the hole. But you will still have to buy a new headset, more than likely

A quick search on ebay for "security torx" screwdrivers should return a set of usable drivers. Be careful that you do not get teh short bit sets to fit a standard hex screw driver as they will not reach the 2 bottom screws - I have this set of drivers and have to pre drill the holes to repair my controllers, get a set of screwdrivers with long thin stems.
If ebay fails you sometimes the local hardware store can special order them.

I have 2 2.5mm jack ends each with different colored wires. Red and green on one and black white and orange on the other. I am hooking up a mic/ headphones. What wires connect to what


honestly the pinout for the adapter depend on what you are planning to plug it into. as manufacturers use standard plugs in different ways, usually the shoulder / body point is the shield / common connection, the others depend on what you're connecting to.

for instance I made a similar connector myself for use on a xbox 360 controller (to connect a gaming headset mic to the headset socket), I believe in that instance the mic's connection was between common and tip.

My xbox 360 mic is acting up. I can talk to people but I can only hear them if the plug is twisted to a certain position


Sounds like a wire broke inside. That's why it only works when you have it in a certain position. Unless you are good at splicing wires, move the wire till you get it to work, and wrap it in that position, then don't move it at all. Good Luck.

The ring of lights around the power button of the Xbox 360 system should spin and blink once. One of the lights should remain lit up, indicating the port number that the headset is using. If you do not see any lights on the system, you may have a faulty wireless headset.6 Press the "Guide" button on your wireless controller to reconnect the controller to the Xbox 360 system. If you are using a wired controller, you can plug it back into the system.7 Press the "Connect" button on the top of your wireless controller to sync the controller with your system. You should see the connection light around the "Guide" button on the controller light up, indicating which port you are connected to. You should also see a corresponding port light in the ring around the power button of your Xbox 360 system 8 Press the "Connect" button on the wireless headset until the port light on the headset matches the light on the controller and Xbox 360 system. For example, if you are the first player, the light for port number one should be lit up on the Xbox system, the controller and the headset. When all lights correspond, your headset should be properly connected.

The sound comes and goes from right part of headset


The left/right problem could be a bad connection on the red/white XBOX cables. Check to see that they're plugged in properly and not loose. You can also try plugging an MP3 player into the red/white jacks to see if the problem is with the headset or the XBOX. If it works ok with your MP3 player, then the headset is working fine.

You can get a new headset controller cable on our web site. Click on Replacement Parts in the left menu for the headset model you own (X1, X3, or X4).

My mic is broken, so I tried to fix the headset by cutting the wires. Then I striped the wires. But I noticed that there were only 4 wires, yet there were 5 places to solder. Looking at the part, There are...


What i've done in similar situations is basically trail and error. You've got two spots for one wire, try them both out.

Some companies will use a generic piece for all their similar products. Maybe one of Altec's other headsets uses that 5th spot for something. Just try them both out and see what happens. Just dont solder them right away, stick them on with some electrical tape or something to save yourself some time. Then when you're sure you can solder away.
