I think the wires need to be replaced

Digimon toy from 2002, its known as a digivice/ D-Tector. (Its a D-Tector version 2) It had two lines of dead pixels when it worked, when I opened the inside of the toy, I was as a careful as I could be, when two wires (black & red small ones) got separated (Must have not been careful enough). Using electrical tape I put the wires back but it wouldn't work, so I think I need new ones all together. I had accidentally cut a blue wire on the bottom that was originally separated when I opened it (I had been trying to get the coating on the outside off so I could try to solder the wire back but I guess I ruined the wire then)

I thought about going somewhere to buy new wires, but my shaky hands don't seem to be fit for the job of fixing it even if I get the wires.

Thank you all for the suggestions, its a D-Tector version 2 (transparent version) and I have added links for photos. As for soldering, I will consider trying that out!

For delicate soldering you need to rest your wrist on the table and hold the iron like a pencil at the element end of the handle. Then it doesn't matter if your hand is a bit shaky as you manipulate the iron with your fingers or at most with your wrist, as you would writing with a pencil.

Philip is spot on about working with your hands. Any time can (which is most time when working on small thing is to use opposition to hold your hands steady. Brace the heel of one hand with the heel. The if you need put the elbow of the bracing hand on a table. You body naturally does this anyway but sometimes needs to be shown to expand the concept. To show your self, let's clean your fingernails with a pocket knife. You will note that you choke up on the blade and use your thumb to brace with. The movement is done with one or the in steady position while the other does most of the movement.
