3.5mm jack replacement wiring COLORS?

My headset has no sound coming out of either speaker, im going to attempt to change the 3.5mm jack.

I have a green wire, red wire, twisted green/red with gold copper and just a golden wire.

What do each of these wires do and which wire goes to which part on the new jack??

Any help would be great.

Thanks.

The copper or gold is usually the ground

Wikipedia suggests you're likely going to want to reattach it with the tip hooked to the left channel, the first ring hooked to the right channel, the second ring hooked to ground, and the sleeve hooked to the mic channel, as detailed here.

Try taking a look at this, but use the twisted green/red as the ground and the gold as the mic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLZu7Dbm...

Do you put the twisted pair and the mic ground together? Because ive got 5wires and only 4 placed on the jack

by

Usually the mic is grounded on the cable already, so yes, that would be correct.

Ive done this and the mic still doesnt work. So what do you think to this?

Red + on RING 1

Green + on TIP

Speaker ground and mic ground on RING2

Mic + on SLEEVE

Because at the moment ive got

Green + on TIP

RED+ on RING1

Speaker Ground on RING2

Mic+ and ground on SLEEVE

and the mic doesnt work.

Thanks.

Red and Green twisted is the mic wire. You have to seperate the copper around it first because that is the ground wire for the mic. I have done the same with my XO4 Turtle Beach headset.

Red is Right side

Green is left

twisted Green/Red is mic

All copper is ground
