My Nokia headset cord is damaged, how can I repair it on my own?
You see there are these small cords in this big cable and they're wrapped around some threads and colored differently, the problem is, I don't understand how they are insulated from each other because they apparently touch each other and I'm not sure how to repair them. Excuse my English.
Re: My Nokia headset cord is damaged, how can I repair it...
I was also having the same problem but i repaired it by cutting the cable and soldering the ribbons with same colour after soldering i applied nail polish on it and let it to dry after sometime wrapped a tape along it and it started working.

Check if something is stopping the thread spool from turning. Usually, when that happens, my thread is wrapped around the spool pin, stuck on the little thread notch on the spool, or wrapped around a thread guide. Try removing the top thread completely and rethreading from the start.
Completely remove the top thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the top thread follows the correct thread path and that the thread is not wrapped around the spool pin or a thread guide. Install a new and bigger needle. Try a different brand of thread. AVOID old or bargain bin thread. Decrease the top thread tension. Try it on different fabric. If it continues, open the bobbin area and handturn the handwheel and watch what happens with the thread. You may be able to see where the problem is. The top thread could be catching on a burr under the needleplate or wrapping around something in the bobbin area, etc.
breaking needle thread can be from
using old cotton--- thread deteriorates with age
needle installed incorrectly--- groove to face thread
thread too thick for needle eye---smaller thread or bigger needle eye
thread not between tension plates but behind a plate and getting caught on the bolt thread
Avoid using old or bargain bin thread. Try a different type of thread.
Check that the thread is threaded correctly in the machine and that it is not wrapped around the thread spool or a thread guide. Also, set the upper tension to the midway point, ie the tension could be too tight.
Hi s cowdroy, I will try to help you out. You have to remove the spool from the head. There are different ways this is done depending on the brand. At the bottom you will see different systems, that you either turn or just pull out. You will have to try just pulling or turning and also some might have left hand threads. As you remove the spool remember how everything goes back in. When you look at the bottom of the spool, different brands have different ways of attaching the cutting cord. One will have an eyelet, another will have holes that the cord fits snugly, etc. Some manufacturers use tape, and that is what I use on every machine I restring. I use packing tape, I wrap it around the cord and then tape it to the bottom of the spool. On the spool will be indicated the way to wrap the cord. When wrapping the cord do it in neat rows to prevent tangling that you will have to clear all the time. Something else to prevent tangling, is to wrap the same way you unwrap it, in other words put the spool and the roll of new cord end to end, and as you roll it on the spool you unroll it from the new roll. I hope you understand what I mean. Do not put too much cord on the spool, leave about 1/4" from top. To install the spool make sure it is the same way you took it out. Insert the cord through the eyelet of the head and install the spool in the same way it came out. Hope this is helpful. All the best and good luck. Denis.
Thread the cord through the starter pulley, wrap the end of the cord once around the pulley pinion and into the small cut a way in the drum, there should then be a small self tapping screw which screws down to secure the end of the rope, if you can tie a small enough knot this will also do to stop the rope coming out of the pulley.
I generally don't like answering questions like this cause it could lead to unwanted problems. But I will say that if the individual wires are color-coded (each wire is a different color and can easily be determined which go to which) and you are handy with some electrical tape and know about how to make wires connect, then you may be able to do this yourself.
If you are NOT able to determine which wires go to which wire, I definitely do NOT recommend you trying to this yourself.
If it is obvious to you which wires go to which, splice them to clean edges, connect metal to metal, wrap two connecting wires tightly with electrical tape, then once all wires are wrapped to one another, bunch all together and wrap all with electrical tape. That's it.
It's fairly simple, but again, YOU MUST, I STRESS MUST be able to distinguish which wires match which wires from the detached (thanks to dear sweet puppy) wires. :) Bad puppy!
Hope this helps at least some. A good repair person shouldn't charge that much to do it for you.
Many things can inter fear with the thread and cause it to break. A common problem is the thread getting wrapped around the top tension rollers on that machine. You can take off the "face cover" (side cover on the left) and look from the side and see if the 2 little rollers have thread wrapped around or underneath them. Start there.
This could either be due to the bobbin being wound too loosely, or the tension on the top thread is too loose. This just happened to me the other day, and I thought it was the bobbin thread, but then I put another bobbin in with a different color than the top thread (this is a huge help in diagnosing thread issues), and I was surprised to find that it was actually the top thread that was a big loopy mess on the underside of the fabric. I fixed it by tightening the tension on the top thread (quite a bit), and everything was fine.
I know this is probably not the answer but: are you sure the thread is coming off of the bobbin on the left side (bobbin in machine correctly), and when I first got my machine I tied to use the bobbins that I had on hand that fit my Singer machine. I had tons of problems with the "odd" bobbins that did not fit correctly into my machine. There is a VERY small size difference, but it does make a difference.
