Шаг 1 Assessing the damage  ¶ 

Of all of the places where the wire can tear down, this is the most common, and also the most inconvenient to fix.

Шаг 2 Access the top screw  ¶ 

Remove the sticker to be able to access the screw that holds the two halves of the casing together Remove the sticker to be able to access the screw that holds the two halves of the casing together

  • Remove the sticker to be able to access the screw that holds the two halves of the casing together

Шаг 3 Unfastening the screw  ¶ 

The screw is tiny and requires some kind of tiny wrench that I don't have, so I made the whole a bit bigger around it to be able to unfasten it with regular pliers.

Шаг 5 Cut the broken wire  ¶ 

Cut the wire and check that everything works but plugging a multimeter to the wires. This way you make sure there's nothing else wrong.

Шаг 6 Soldering the wires  ¶ 

get two pieces of heat shrink shield on each of the wires before doing any soldering Solder the wires to the ends on the casing. Make sure to respect polarity! The negative end is marked with a dashed line Place the heat shrink shield over the soldering and apply heat to seal

Шаг 7 Securing the wires coming out of the case  ¶ 

the bit that protects the wire as it comes out of the casing needs to be cut in half to be reused, and you also want to make the hole in the middle larger so that the new soldered wires fit A bit of hot glue will keep things in place Add some electrical tape for extra firmness and insulation
