Answer to: USB cable torn out wires exposed? Repair?ok these wires are insulated... This means you need to solder them back together.. there is a single wire inside each color.. twisting them will simply make matters worse.. I would cut them so there is a even wire that is not frayed and solder the ends back together.. this will work you just need to get a solder gun.. If u dont have one they are like 10 15 bucks at walmart.. Update: wires are copper, red, green, copper wrapped in red, and copper wrapped in green. Sometimes blue....5 wires... do not untwist the 2 wires that are wrapped in copper.. they are supposed to be like that.. Im having trouble fixing my X11.. the wires inside the headset part came undone and I don't know where each wire goes on the circut board... NO ONE KNOWS... I have been looking forever and thought I might as well help someone else..
