Cut the ******** and replace it with a new one. You will need to solder the wires on to the new one. Keep the old one, cut it open and it will tell you which wires go to which terminal.

You will have to strip back enough wire length on the wires and also on the jack (or a good new and used jack with wires coming out of it) and wrap or solder them together, then wrap them in tape or coat with nail polish, and tape when they dry. Sometimes it just won't work, sometimes it can, just depends. Since the wires are usually multiwired and lacquer-coated, it is tricky and very hard. You have to separate the thin cloth fibers used for strength, and then scrape the lacquer off with an exacto knife, scraping the ends repeatedly. It's a delicate and hard operation. After the lacquer is off, wrap the ends together, or carefully solder if you can. Be careful soldering, since it's easy to burn up the super thin wires with too much heat.
These items are not designed or built to be fixed, or serviced, but sometimes you can get lucky. I used to do it, but it's a **** shoot whether it will really work, is tedious and takes awhile, and then there's no guarantee how long .
Good luck, wish there was better or easier news.
